LG front loader washer won't start

I am having a problem with my front loading LG washer. It does not want to start when I press on the button. It happened a few times over the past 6 months and after a few tries and days it will start. Is the switch worn out or is their a serious problem with the computer system? I have clothes in there now, and everytime I walk by the machine I press on the ON button and it doesn't start. I kinda want to go back to the basic machine!!!!

SOURCE: LG1812CW Walks During Spin Cycle

The rear 2 legs are fixed. The front 2 are adjustable. There are lock nuts to prevent the adjustment from coming loose. The front legs are to be adjusted to the minimum. While not running if the machine rocks, continue the adjustment. For few clothes there is a half load switch; best the read the manual well before anything. Well if the walking continues, check the rear for any shocks or springs that may hv fallen off during transport. Plug off the wall socket first.

Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell. Good luck!

SOURCE: Walking Washer

The best way to fix this problem is to adjust the front legs while the machine is spinning a full wash load.  Put in a load of clothes and run the machine to get the clothes nice and wet.  It will take about 5 minutes to get them completely wet.  Next, turn the washer off.  Now, turn the washer back on and push the spin button to select the extra fast speed.  You washer will go into a drain mode and then begin to toss the load into a balance spin mode.  Once the washer is spinning the clothes, check the balance of the unit by pushing the front left corner of the washer towards the right rear corner and right front corner towards the left rear corner.  If the sound of the washer quiets down on one side vs the other side, adjust the front leg to quiet that side.  Do not attempt to adjust the rear legs as they do not require adjustments at all.  Everything adjusts on the front legs.  
This procedure works if the floor is sturdy enough.  If the floor is old and the wood is weak, it will not work.

SOURCE: Clear greasy stains appearing on clothes from brand new LG front loading washer

the grease i'm sure would be coming from the machine. look at the water solenoids, detergent dispenser, dispenser solenoids, everything with rubber hoses.

they do put a clear grease just to insert the hose easier in the plant. and if it was not removed during QC, then it would come out now as you uses it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: Water leaking from my front load LG washer

If it's not the door gasket check the water control valves. They can continue to leak without the washer being turned on.

LG WM2277HB start button won't start cycle

Either the button is damaged or the switch it operates is malfunctioning.
