Question about LG Washing Machines
Have you looked to see if the belt is still on?

Testimonial: "The belt is on and the motor runs. Turns out that the splines on the agitator were stripped (where agitator fits over motor shaft) So the motor runs, but it doesnt turn the agitator>"

Check the pressure switch -the system that determines correct water
level in the drum. If its giving an incorrect indication to the program
timer machine will either overfill, refuse to fill or refuse to spin.
Its an air operated diaphragm switch triggered by rising air pressure
induced by the entry of water into an airtight vessel attached to the
base of the drum. It tells the program timer that the water has reached
the correct level, allowing it to proceed to the water heating stage in
the cycle. Power off, drag machine out onto the floor, remove back
cover and top cover. The pressure switch is a round item about 3 inches
across with several wires and a thin rubber pipe attached. It generally
sits just under the top cover. Disconnect the thin rubber pipe from the
switch and blow down through it to clear any blockage. Switch itself may
be faulty but its more likely the pressure pipe or the vessel attached
to the other end of the pipe is blocked. Some machines have the pressure
vessel integrated as part of the filter unit, with a pressure chamber
moulded into the top of the filter body. Remove the pressure vessel, put
a small nut or screw in it, fill it with water and shake vigorously
till any crud or residue is removed. Refit all parts, check that joints
and connections are water tight.
Also check the filter itself - generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Power off, drag machine out onto the floor, remove back cover or tip machine up at an angle. Locate sump hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together with a large pair of pliers or vise grips, remove the hose, take out filter and clean. Be prepared for spillage of water. May help if the machine is tilted backwards at an angle.
