I have a LG top load washer, model WT5001CW that makes a grinding sound during agitation cycle but not during spin. Drains like it's supposed to. Any ideas?

This sounds like you have a problem with the tub suspension rods (4 of them) if one is faulty, you will have to replace all four of them to cure the problem.
It could be that they just need to be realigned as the grinding sound is the inner tub contacting the outer tub housing.

I have a LG WT5001CW top load washer. Recently the agitator plate began to loosen and fall off during spin cycle. Now when spin cycle starts and the tub turns it squeaks and grinds then I get a UE alarm.

The agitator has a gear like attachment that meets the long shaft up the center of the tub. If the alignment is off and not exactly in place the agitator will move or the gear-like part will wear down, become rounded, or break. The agitator must fit perfectly and tight. A nut on top (under the cap) has to be turned down tight.

My two year old LG Top loader washer wt5001cw completed it cycle and shut off. The latch will not open now and it won't turn back on. HELP!

Use a putty knife to lift top. Insert between cabinet and top in front. There is one on the left and the right. Then the top should lift up and be able to at least get your clothes out.

Lg waveforce washer grinding sound

If it is just coins, I wouldn't bother. However, depending on the age and or unexpired warranty, I wouldn't jeopardise the warranty.
It could be the agitator's transmission, which if it is under warranty
should be fixed by the MFG. If out of warranty, unless you are a DIY, you need to call appliance service people. Ask the approximate price for repair. Depending on the age, it may be time to look for a lightly used replacement.

Lg wt5001cw making noise

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

My LG WT5001CW top load washer will not drain. All diagnostics indicate a pump problem. I took out the pump and tested it and it works fine. What else could be the problem?

Shine a flashlight up the hose from pump to tub. See if you can see the light from inside the tub. Sometimes a sock or other small item can find it's way in there. Also make sure the impeller of the pump is straight and not cocked to the side, indicating a bent impeller shaft.

Limited agitation during wash cycle Load Sense OK

Possible that the program selected is an easy wash as this is meant for daily wash , less soiled clothes.
If however the same situation is present in all the cycles then the capacitor to the motor must be checked as it can reduce the speed of the motor.
Also check the belt , check for friction on the drum spindle and the motor.
