Hello,

The machine is too old to use..Do not overweight the machine so that it can carry the load and spin correctly. Verify also the belt connecting the motor, maybe you need to replace since it cannot hold tightly towards the pulley.

Hi,

Could be a couple of things that you may want to check (or seek the services of a qualified professional):

  • belt - P/N 2W50428F
  • clutch assy - P/N 4265FA1733A; or
  • motor assy - P/N 4681FA1506M
Incidentally, if the machine senses an out of balance and it would appear to you that it balance, you may need likewise to check any or all of the suspension assy (P/N 4902FA1953R).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The motor that makes the whole thing spin is old which has been used for countless times, making it sluggish/slow. That's what happened to mine, so I had a repair man and have him fix it. Mine just needed some lubricating, and it went back to normal. Can't say if the same would work for you, but nevertheless, have a repairman take a look.

My LG Turbodrum WF-T7030Tp will not spin.


The LG's typically have a "gearbox" that cannot be fixed if it breaks. You'll have to check with an official dealer. I had a similar problem and in the end it turned out the gearbox would cost more than the whole machine (distribution network fail??).

How old it your machine?

I have an LG model WF-T7015TP Turbodrum top-loader automatic washing machine. Having problem in that the drum does not agitate to and fro during the washing cucle. It's draining fine and even spin-drying...


check the agitator module unit and the start capacitor both in the back of the control panel One controls the agitation and the other starts the motor. If the start capacitor is failed simply replace it with a new one The agitator module will cost more . Have an appliance electrician check it out.

LG +3 turbodrum wf t851 bE error code


I have the same problem. I do not think this has a micro switch to activate the wash cycle or spin. I have looked carefully.

I have a gut feeling that this works on a sensor similar to that of a sonic car alarm. It may have gone out of sync and needs to be retuned.

I have tried to find the software but it is not commercially available.
