Question about LG WM2487H Front Load Washer
Welcome to FixYa.
Based on what you've described, there are a few possible scenarios that will cause this.
1) It could be either the shipping bolts are still in place, shown below
2) the water hoses are backwards ( it's critical for proper operation to make sure hot goes to hot and cold to cold )
3) or even you're using too much detergent (or the wrong type of detergent), you must use "HE" only in these frontload machines
4) the leveling legs/feet aren't secured proper or are uneven...
...otherwise it doesn't spin the items out very well either due to too much vibration sensed to maximize spin.
Make sure the shipping bolts are out first, i.e.
Level properly, i.e.
And use only detergent with this label, but not much is necessary.
**especially if your laundry has been washed in a top load prior to now since the items will likely still contain soap from the old washing...maybe pre-wash all your items before placing them in a actual wash cycle with detergent for the first time**
Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you move forward from here.

Welcome to FixYa
If you have
already cleaned the drain pump filter assembly and as the door lock assembly
has also been replaced so I believe that you have already checked the belt
& idler pulley as well. Considering this situation the problem is with the
motor that needs replacement, motor bearings are not available easily. Please
get back to me if you have any other questions.
