Hi - Are you certain the error code is L7? This manufacturer does not have any L7 error codes for any washer or other units. I understand that it will not spin either; does the unit make a humming noise? If so, either the drainage hose/pump is clogged and needs to be cleaned, or you have another issue with the door lock assembly or the timer and control board not communicating correctly.

If its rattling check the drum for anything
caught in it.Washing machine noise is not only annoying, it can also be a sign
of serious damage. When armed with a few tips, you can determine what problem
may be causing your washing machine to rattle, and what you can do to stop it.
Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud
noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has
come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn
of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire
time the drum is spinning.)
Look for obvious dents and creases in the
drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the
drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.
Clear the water pump from obstructions like
coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is
Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires
if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can
also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the
drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if
you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or
wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
