Question about LG WD-3243RHD Front Load Washer / Dryer
Having the same problem with not draining and definitely getting the crackling noise. Anyway, do you know where I can find the drain filter screen to see what might be blocking it?
Open the flap at the front bottom left of the machine (use a flat object in the notch at the top of the flap).
Unscrew the little stopper which has a black drain pipe behind it. If the pump doesn't work there is probably too much water for this pipe. I got my pump to just work by lowering the main drain pipe so it drained into the toilet bowl. Or maybe turn the machine on its side so the pump is at the top. (But with the machine full of water I don't know what happens. It's your risk!)
Drain the pump through the small black pipe (into a baking tray!).
Unscrew the drain filter. Behind it is a hole where you can just see the pump impeller.
There is also a screw between the small black pipe and the door release loop which allows you to pull off the cover at the bottom front of the machine to give access to the screws holding the pump on. You have to take the pump out though the bottom of the machine. The bottom of the machine (but be sure the machine is unplugged) also gives access to the plastic clips holding the bottom front cover on. Squeezing the top right clip (as viewed from the front) makes it easier to pull off without damaging the clips. The pump motor can also be removed from below by unscrewing the 3 screws attaching it to the pump body, although they are a bit awkward to get at. The pump stator coils can be removed by squeezing 2 plastic clips, but be sure the machine is unplugged before trying to remove the pump motor..

The crackling noise you're hearing is something is inside the drain pump and hitting the obstruction. It's possible that the drain pump has been severely damaged to the point that the pump will have to be changed. You will need to have a qualified LG technician diagnose the problem.
