Clicking noise in place of grinding and dispensing liquid;
Preparation process begins, when you hit the start button, but machine begins a regular clicking noise instead of or at the same time that the liquid used to spurt out and the coffee bean light goes red. Clicking noise continues until you turn the machine off. No grounds are produced in side bucket.
I also can't get grinder to slide forward / toward me by pressing the 'Press Here' lever just inside the front cover (at one time I thought I was able to)?

Re: Clicking noise in place of grinding and dispensing...
Your brew gear drive is broken. Your doser knob is det to the max and you got an over charge in the brew unit that the drive could not compress and it broke some of the teeth on the gear. You will have to replace the gear and make sure that it is timed before testing or you will break it again.

I don't have a direct answer for you. There are many things which could cause the noise from a beater simply hitting the bowl to internal gear problems. You did not say which model you have so take a look at the two Service Manuals linked below. One of these ought to cover your machine.
C V Joints can make a lot of noises. Sounds to me like you either bent the inner fender or if it is plastic you may have pulled it loose and it looks normal but it is just sitting in place with the push pins out of their intended holes. When you turn and or hit a high speed it hits the wheel/tire. Try putting on some gloves and then pulling medium strength on the fender well and surrounding areas to see if that is the problem -
Regular cleaning maintenance is required to prevent odor build up inside the machine. The LG WM2688HWM has a TUB CLEAN feature, a special cycle for the cleaning of the inside of the washer. This cycle uses a high water level with higher spin speed.
Remove any clothing or items from the washer and close the door.
Open the dispenser drawer and add liquid chlorine bleach ONLY to the bleach compartment.
Close the dispenser drawer slowly to prevent the bleach from spilling.
Turn on the machine then press the EXTRA RINSE button for 3 seconds.
Press the START/PAUSE button to start.
Leave the door open to dry the washer door opening, door seal and door glass after the cycle is complete.
You have a solenoid switch which switches the
dispenser back and forth from crushed to cube. It could be stuck or not working
or the parts connecting it could be disconnected or broken. You will have to

The door lock is not telling the control the door is locked. Faulty door switch or failed control or loose wire.Try pushing in on the door while it tries to start. Advanced trouble shooting may be required. Eric
No its not button I would know about after 30 some years. You may be having 2 or more symptoms begin caused by the same problem though. The noise at night tapping may be because (and indeed may be doing it ll the time you just don't notice it due to the angle of echo in your home and kitchen) I suspect the fan blade (Im betting on the one behind and below by the compressor) is either bent slightly or hitting. something. I have seen anythign from mice to papers get close to the fan blades and cause a mistery problem. This would explain the defrosting also especially if it cant get going again. Take off the back cover and look for the fan motor and spin the fan if its stopped. You also need a strong flashlight to look out for what might be causing it. If it is a mouse dont worry he will only be bothering those cats that have lived into the 10th life.
As for the grinding noise.../when you get water... and the leaking... is the leaking comming form the water area or the defrosting? Ok you say defrosting so that could be explained by the outer fan. The noise though maybe even the cardboard baffel in the back is getting in the way of thatfan in back. And i think it might be your water line gettign hit by this fan. That would tie in and make all the trouble stem from a water line hitting the fan. If tihs is it please tell me so I can recover from not knowing if Im helping people out here. Im beginning to think Im wasting my time. Please post more so I'll know.
