LG Toploader Wash cycle won't work

My LG machine fills, drains and spins properley but during the wash cycle the drive doesn't spin. I can hear it slipping inthe drive shaft. I'm thinking the either or both parts of the drive mechanism are worn. Are these parts easily/cheaply replaceable? Thanks for assistance.

Check for the water seal first if it is leaking! if it does, then it might just be the one causing slipping.

Washer fills with water but doesn't begin to agitate to wash. It also drains but doesn't spin when we set the dial to that

Your agitator pindle. has come loose From the spline. Try to lift up on the agitator. If it lifts off the spindle easily then it has worn out the spline. That is what connects the agitator to the s

Washing machine will not drain water

Here are some basic troubleshooting steps you can follow to help you determine why your washing machine won't drain:

1. Check the drain hose in the back of the machine and make sure it isn't kinked or flattened.

2. If it spins but won't drain, there could be a piece of fabric stuck between the inner and outer tub, or even the drain hose or pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. It could also be a faulty timer.

3. Are clothes soaked at the end of the wash, even though it appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? Worn or loose belts could be the culprit.

4. When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? It could be a faulty or jammed impeller pump.

For more suggestions on troubleshooting and fixing this issue, check out Washing machine not draining. I hope this helps!

Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?

see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

I have an LG TopLoader washing machine. It does not want to wash, it fills with water and drain the water but it does not want to wash. It is a 7.2kg toploader.

I believe you need to replace the Spin Solenoid. Your machine is not switching over to spin/wash.

It is a very cheap part to replace, and can be bought at your nearest Home Appliance Part Store.

Part Number: 5250FA1731L/P

Good Luck

Washer will not Spin during SPIN CYCLES

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. (consult your manual to know where/how filter is cleaned). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
