Pretty much exactly what guest above me said. I have a lsq8543jq1 also, was stopping after agitation.
At first thought it was something more serious, since the dial seemed to make a humming/grinding/buzzing noise when it was switching to agitation cycle, but that seems to just be a timer before the drain/spin cycle kicks in.
I had a washer full of water, so rather than wait till I could get a part (or hand drain -what a pain), I just grabbed a paper clip and rigged the switch so it thinks the door is shut and voila, drains and finishing cycle as I type.
The switch is a safety device to prevent accidents; bad injuries could result if the door is opened while the washer is in spin cycle. I don't recommend this as a long term solution - especially if you have kids. I have 2 and will be ordering the new part asap.

If you have loosened the handle a little and pulling the adjustment trigger didn't allow for movement,you may need to remove and clean the turn table.(don't forget,the handle must be loosened for the turn table to rotate)
Please rate this a fixya

Your uplift injector valve in the water pump is sticking. You need to remove this part. Lube the top o-ring only with a water proof grease. Reinstall this part. You will be up and running again.
You need to use needle nose vise grip tool to easily remove the valve. You need to grind down the vise grip tool to fit the opening where the valve is installed.
To prevent this problem from reoccuring use a pump guard additive.

Don't starve the inlet to the pump. It will detroy it.
Buy a pressure regulating valve and plumb it in line per the instructions. Do not use a relief valve because you will have to have a return line or you will heat the water up on the inlet side of the pump depending on how the pressure washer is set up. It should already have a safety relief valve. You might look and also find a pressure regulator that is adjustable and all you problems will be solved.

SOURCE: NO PSI
have you checked to make sure that keyway is installed between electric motor and pump. also adjustment on unloader valve may be incorrect. If the big brass nut on the unloader is able to be turned by hand, then this is probably your problem (running pressure and spike pressure needs to be set and locked down using a pressure guage). does water come out of nozzle at all? if not, tip being stopped up may be the problem. trash between unloader ball and seat can also cause no pressure (usually caused by a burr left inside brass pieces during the manufacturing process). I have seen all the check valves stuck on a brand new unit from sitting on the shelf for so long, but this is usually the case with General Pumps.
