Please unplug or shut off the power at the fuse box...
The water inlet valve connects the hot and cold water lines from your home to the back of the washer. The solenoids on the valve open one or both valves to provide the proper water temperature for the wash cycle.

The solenoids on the valve open one or both valves to provide the proper water temperature for the wash cycle.

The water inlet valve can be identified by the water hoses connected to it at the back of the washer. Start by turning off the water supply at the valves on the wall. Disconnect both hoses from the back of the washer. Place the hoses into a bucket and turn them on to confirm that you are getting good water pressure and to clear out any debris from the line.
Inspect the filter screens on both the hoses and the inlet valve for debris build up. If you find any debris, clean it out. Use caution to avoid damaging the filter screens because the screens in the valve are not replaceable.
If debris was not present then proceed to the next step of testing the solenoids. Access to the valve may be easiest by opening the top or the back of the washer, depending upon make and model.There are two wires connected to each solenoid (aka coil) on the water inlet valve. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip-on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

CL means that the child lock feature is active and the control panel buttons will not respond. For the LG WD1433RD, press and hold the Rinse+ and Pre-Wash buttons together for about 3 seconds to toggle the lock off. For the LG WD14311RD, press and hold Option and Rinse for about 3 seconds. On both washers, there is a small icon between the two buttons needed to toggle the child lock feature on and off. (It's a small face above a padlock.)
The manual as a Djvu file for the LG WD14311RD is available here: http://www.lg.com/uk/support/product/support-product-profile.jsp?customerModelCode=WD-14311RD&initialTab=warranty&targetPage=support-product-profile .
The manual for the WD1433RD is available as a PDF here: http://www.manualsonline.com/ex/thread/view/idThread/80183 .
I hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Simple explanation , very quick response....fantastic"

See if your washer is still under warranty ( perhaps an extended warranty?), if not unplug and remove hoses from faucets, remove back of machine, and carefully try to move the tub of washer back and forth a bit. BE GENTLE, you don't want to do any further damage. Sounds like something loosened up, you'll need some hand tools to tighten up a screw or bolt, and a good flashlight and an extra pair of hands to help with this.
Don't over tighten, if that is what has to happen.
If you are not able to repair it yourself, call a repair person so you don't damage it,
but get 5 estimates before choosing who to have repair it.
To often we pick the first one and it costs way to much $$.
If machine is still under warranty, don't attempt any repairs as that will negate your warranty.
