Hi there......this problem is usually related to badly worn brushes in the motor...a quick way to check this is.....(1) remove the machine from its position...bringing it foward enough to tilt it back sufficiently allowing you access to the botom of the machine...(2) insect the motor for signs of black carbon dust...indicating brush ware....gently tap the motor with a small hammer...or suitable object....stand the machine uright again...select spin....run machine....if all is ok machine will run indicating a set of replacement carbon brushes are required....failure to run indicates brushes very badly worn and possibility of damaged motor...remove the rear panel of the machine...remove the belt...remove the motor for inspection..of armature and brushes...any burn or discolouring marks on the copper brush track...indicates a failed motor..which will require replacing....

regards Sir Galahad

LG washer high pitch noise when water enters at beginning of cycle


Two possibilities: the water is coming in under pressure through a solenoid valve that is not fully open or the pressure pump is whining on its bearings.

Washer will not spin water out


There is a flap inside of the washer that comes up as the washer begins to spin...Just replace that valve and everything should be fine. As long as its spinning and washing you will not need to get a new one :)

Laundry washing machine


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. 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.

Water only fills the machine in certain parts of cycle


a 90* wash will fill mainly with hot water / a 40* wash will fill mainly with cold water, this is normal action, rinses fill up with cold water only

is this what you are describing, if so thats normal, especially if its doing the job correctly
