After searching for the answer as to why my LG WM2455H wouldn't start unless I unplugged it and then plugged it again, and trying many "solutions", such as holding the power and start buttons for x amount of seconds, I finally found one that worked. Just before ordering a new control panel, I decided to search one more time for an answer, and found a young man claim that his uncle told him the answer to solving the problem. It's a little weird, and I was very skeptical, as you will be, but it DID WORK to let my washer power on after running cycles of wash. Here it is: Within 12 seconds, push in the POWER button and let go, then open and close the washer door, repeat by pushing in power button again, and let it go, then immediately open and close the washer door again. Do this six times within a 12 second time span. According to the young man on youtube, this procedure RESETS the controls. I would still be a little skeptical, except my machine behaves like it's suppose to now. PLUS, I did nothing that might be attributed to the solution (except think about how I was going to move the heavy washer away from the wall to replace the Control Panel I planned to buy). So, I hope this works for you. It certainly saved me a lot of time and money.

Do a tub clean cycle. Hottest water, no clothes, cup of bleach in washer, fill bleach dispenser with bleach, fill softener with bleach. Run once or twice. The 'grease' is actually residue from liquid detergent and/or softener. So stop using liquid detergent and switch to powdered (no residue believe it or not). Use plain white vinegar in place of softener. The acid eliminates the mildew residue and also helps get detergent residue out of your clothes. Good luck.

most likely it is the motor position sensor also known as a hall sensor. very common issue on older lg washers. easy fix, inexpensive fix--$20. check out appliancepartspros.com or repairclinic.com for excellent videos on how to replace. type in make/model and you will find videos. replace with oem/lg part. do not get oem equivalent part. good luck.

It seems that the Main Control Board of your washing machine is playing up. The fact that when you unplug the machine from the mains, the main control board resets itself and you are able to start the machine points in this direction.

If the washer is leaking water the drain pump might have a hole or crack. Or, the bearings might be worn out. Replace the drain pump if it is leaking water, they're not repairable.
Check the condition of the drain hose that connects the tub to the pump.

Unplug the washer for 5 minutes to see if the commands for the cycle will reset. Also try pressing the stop button for ten seconds.
