Hi.

If the machine does not spin and drain , then it is usually a drain problem.

The stuck pillow may have released fluff from inside the pillow that may have clogged the drain system.

To fix the problem it is necessary to access the drain pump, undo the hose, and look for blockage in there.

The pump is accessed removing the panel at front lower side of the appliance.

The pump is located on the right side, have a container ready to collect water.

Disconnect the appliance from power before accessing the pump.


If the pump is OK, then the pillow stuck in the tub may have put under stress the motor assembly, damaging motor or motor control unit.

In this last case parts must be tested by a technician.

If you need to call a technician you can use the number listed on the owners manual.

How can I spin and drain my normal size load. I have an LG front loading washer m/n WM2455H and it will not spin and drain. I hear the hum of the pump, so it isn't that. Went through all troub


It is most likely the drain motor even though you hear it humming. The LG drain motor impellers usually wear out on the motor shaft, and the impellers then just end up wobbling. The result; a drain motor that no longer drains water.

Replaced the clutch and motor coupler a month ago. Ran great. Washed tennis shoes. Came in to remove clothes, didn't spin. Wont agitate or spin, i could hear the motor running. Just replaced the motor...


Check for a failed capacitor under the control panel It is a start/run capacitor that the motor needs to start running. The motor will hum and if left will eventually burn out.

Wont spin or drain it only only hums when turn on


Either your drain pump is bad or something is stuck in it.  It won't spin until it drains so fix the drain pump, and it will spin.  You should be able to get at the drain pump by taking off the bottom panel, or back panel.
