Check that the drum is free to move - by rotaiing it by hand. If it rotates very freely - it is likely you need a new drive belt. If the drum is very stiff - and won't move, it is possibly a faulty rear bearing. If both these checks are not the problem, it could be a motor or control board fault. It can be a cheap set of brushes needed for the motor - or a new control board.
It really needs investigation to identify which part is needed before replaements are ordered.
Turn off and unplug before investigating further.

Iv'e got a LG Top loader.WF-T755A. When it spins the drum shakes violently and move the washing machine around . It also makes a loud noise while doing it. What is wrong please?

The load is off balance. Instead of being evenly spread out along the drum, your laundry is bunched up on one side. Try smaller loads to allow the clothes to move more freely in the water.

Machine is making clanking and grinding noise during wash cycle drum does not appear to be turning. does not make this noise if ran without items in wash and drum turns with no items in the wash

You may have a problem with bearing. Place your hand inside the drum and see if you can move it up and down. If the drum can be moved up and down, you have a severe bearing problem that will require a technician to tear down the unit and replace the bearing and drum assembly. It's a very expensive job.
Good luck

My washer model fjs1397w wont move through a wash cycle or spin drum wont go around on any cycle , tried moving it around by hand will not do anything

if you are unable to turn the drum by hand it may have ceased due to a sock or item of clothing jammed in it behind the drum this in turn may have snapped the belt

Has been working as usual until today .Scuffing/ scraping noises when drum is turning

Check for pin, or other item caught in a hole in the tub rubbing on the outer tub to make noise as the tub turns.

Zanussi washing machine wont spin

check the drain hole when you start the machine if the water is coming back out , if yes that means your dump valve is bad.
