The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.

SOURCE: soap dispenser not working
It sounds like the water valve has a clogged filter. Shut the cold water to the washer off, disconnect the hose and remove the filter screen in the washer water valve. Clean out the filter with toothbrush. Reinstall and everything should be ok.

SOURCE: Spin cycle
You have an uneven load... ( not kidding here).. If you remove and/or reposition the clothes inside . and restart.. does it spin up and complete the cycle? ( probably yes).. but if no.. please elaborate on what it does or doesn't do so we can help.. I've experienced the same problem when my daughter tries to do her entire weeks worth ( maybe longer) of clothes in one load.. The quick fix is usually to down size the amount being washed.. Hope this helps you...

That noise means it is blocked. Did you get the filters in the back of the machine at the inlets? I've been through heck with this.... check out what finally worked.
IE= Inlet Error. I have struggled with this problem. After much trial and error it appears that it is due to my well water. People who have city water will probably not have this problem with this machine. Well water or hard water buyers beware. This machine is VERY much a primadonna princess capable of stopping your rinse cycle at the slightest imperfections. This is the Princess and the Pea of Washers... but I have a series of possible solutions that will have you appreciating her primadonna superiority once again.
Troubleshooting... Listen.... Does she sound like she is struggling and no water is coming in? If so then it isn't. The cycles will last forever as she makes all sorts of grunting noises. Something is preventing the water from coming in. It could also be that the pressure in to the washer is under 55 psi.
a. I have adjusted the pressure in the pumphouse to allow for minor fluctuations so that the machine will have at least 55 psi.
b. Take off the hot and cold inlet hose and clean the screen at the back of the washer. The two screens are supposed to come out of the male receptacles. They are fragile... beware. I use a squirt bottle/atomizer to clean these screens as mine chipped and will not budge.
c. You can add a screen just off the faucets so that you don't have to move the machine each and every time you get an IE error. This helps but does not solve.
d. I installed a faucet filter that I bought from Home Depot in the PVC sprinkler's section. They are made of a black plastic material and can easily cross thread, so be careful. They look about the size of a one liter container and unscrew midway to reveal a removable cylindrical mesh filter. This makes it possible to widen the surface area where tiny particles can be trapped without totally blocking flow to the inlet sensor. :-) When installing this make sure to completely rinse the hoses, and all screens coming into the machine. I took the shortcut first and thought my idea had failed only to discover that the screen behind the washer was partially blocked.
e. Periodically remove the filter and clean. Depending on the quality of your water, you may need to do this at all the points that have a screen.
I now have a screen washer between the sprinkler system filter and hose and the one that comes installed inside the male ends of the inlets for the water hoses. This has helped enormously.
f. Another possible offender is the soap and softener dispenser. To remove and clean press down on the plastic toggle piece on the soap side, the whole drawer should slide off and clean. Non-HE detergents and softeners can create a buildup of gooey gunk. Just clean it. Inside the drawer space you can clean to increase flow. I use baby wipes.
g. Make sure that the filter on the bottom is free from obstructions. If there is water in the drum, you will be flooded if you remove. This is a last resort after all the inlet lines have been cleaned and cleared.
Note: It doesn't take much to lower the flow of water to the point that this machine will not run. Since you cannot override the computer on it to run a spin cycle or even advance to remove water it can be highly frustrating. I've learned to obey my machine and just clear every last possible inlet.
Best of luck.

I have a (2009 )WM0642HW.The new ones don't have the Forced Water Recirculation Nozzle that's in the top of the door seal. LG quietly (discontinued) that feature. If you do see a WM0642HW with a spray nozzle in top of the door seal in a showroom somewhere, it was a WM0642HW manufactured ( assembled ) a long time ago.Currently produced WM0642HW will not have the Water Recirculation feature installed. There may still be some older version "new" WM0642HW units out there somewhere? But most of them are display models or unavailable ,and with a shorter motor warranty. 7 years instead of current 10 years on new versions of the WM0642HW.But getting back to your question, the washer fills by water entering the cylinder through the back top left side of drum as it flows from the dispenser compartment via a hose.The opening is right behind the cylinder baffels location. It has no fill nozzle at the front gasket edge like some other brands have. My washer did not clean well at all with full loads. Only after i turned the water level switch under the top lid "clockwise" a half turn ,does it now fill up to the bottom of the door rubber seal.My clothing now tumbles in a pool of water instead of a WICK WATER RUB WASH that it was doing previously. It's a 100 times better with the few gallons of extra water inside, BELIEVE ME. What i say is from experience with this exact model.Turn up the water level so it can tumble in some water. TRUST ME ON THIS ONE! You'll have nothing but grief until you've had enough and have the desire to turn it up alittle.Just have it set to fill to the bottom of the door gasket.Everything will be saturated at the start of the wash and not towards the end of the wash segment.
