Check the tube that goes to the soap tray. It may be plugged or have a buildup of dried soap. If the hose is clear, follow the hose to the pump. Make sure pump is getting power with a voltmeter, if it is, test the pump itself with an ohmmeter.

The washer can shake (some time very much) on the spin cycle (with a clothes inside) if it's out of balance. In such case it'll never go on full speed.

If it happens, you have to open the lid and redistribute the load.

Even the motor has two speeds, there is no separate speed switch on the control panel and you not able to choose the high speed for any cycle.

It will spin on the high speed only when the "regular" cycle used.

All other cycles will provide only low speed for the spin.

Also if there is too much suds, the washer will never drain completely.

You probably have a worn clutch and bad brake shoes, or something in the tub.
Shine a bright lite in the tub and look for something. If ok, pull the outer cover of the washer and pull the pump and motor out. Turn the coupler clockwise till the spin basket starts to turn. If very hard to turn the coupler, you have dragging brake shoes or a bad lint filter under the spin basket.

The soap dispenser only closes after several tries. At the end of the cycle, the soap is wet and stuck in the open dispenser


May want to try liquid detergent instead. Sometimes using too much detergent will prevent the dispenser from opening and then the soap turns into a wet glob in the dispenser.

Soap-not residue-still on clothes


Wow that's a strange one.
Are you pouring the soap into the tub onto the clothes or using a soap dispenser? If using a dispenser, it may be malfunctioning, try pouring soap directly into the tub under the waterfall while it is filling.
When the machine is agitating are the clothes on top being drawn under the water? Usually this occurs as a rolling motion from the edge of the tub towards the agitator. If the top layer of clothes have an air bubble trapped in them they may not be submerging into the water. Any soap on top may not be dissolved.
Finally, if you are pouring soap into the tub, make sure you are not spilling any onto the inside of the lid or in the softener dispenser. It could get trapped in the lip around the edge of the lid and be spilling onto the clothes when you open the lid at the end of the cycle.
Do you have the same problem if you use powder soap?

LG WM2277HS - water backing up into soap dispenser


The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.

We had the same problem- for us it was because we were mixing laundry booster (Oxyclean) with liquid soap in the dispenser. It seems the water running through the tray had insufficient pressure to properly flush the tray out, so residue accumulated on the back & underside of the tray. Our water pressure is good here, and we don't use a water softener or filters that can reduce the pressure. Unfortunately it seems to just be a bad design of the soap dispenser tray.

We also had a problem with water/bleach leaking from our soap dispenser- when we used the bleach compartment in the dispenser we got leaks dripping onto the floor from behind the front cover of the washing machine. It was running down the front of the washer behind the front cover & coming out onto the floor. The repair guy said this was because the dispenser tray was pulled out too far, but the reason we were pulling the soap tray out so far was because the bleach compartment was too far back in the tray to use if we didn't. Now we just leave the drawer partially closed & pour the bleach directly into the soap compartment along with the soap.

Wet clothes, water in soap dispenser


Next check your drain, where the hose goes in behind, snake this out. And dont shove the hose in too deep, into the standpipe that is.

If this helps, rate me please.
