Question about Washing Machines
This is a recurring problem with the LG machine. Typically the problem is caused by a faulty hall sensor. The hall sensor is easily replaced. You will have to remove the rotor and stator to access the hall sensor. When replacing the rotor, you will probably need an assistant hold the drum while you push the rotor onto the shaft, otherwise the drum may move forward enough to make replacing the bolt difficult. The drum should also be held while the bolt is tightened.
Before you would replace the hall sensor, check the connector on the main board. It's the red connector closest to the heat sink. Pull the connector off and verify that the board is receiving the signal from the sensor.
I am sorry to hear about the problem that you are having and hope that this information helps you. Like I said, this seems to be a common problem on these washers, but it is usually corrected by replacing the hall sensor. Hope things work out for you and best wishes.
