The washer stops during the wash cycle and there is setting water. The only thing we have to do at this time start it up again is "wiggle" the knob around. After we "wiggle" the knob the cycle continues as normal. It only stops in one spot and the same spot every time. Would this be a quick fix?

Sears Parts Direct is one source of the parts diagrams, https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model/1vc37q1bdj-003204/lg-wm3987hw-washer-parts . See the Dispenser assembly parts diagram for the water inlet valve. If you can watch the entire cycle, try turning off the shut-off valves for the washer inlet hoses after the rinse cycle and before the dry cycle starts. Water should not flow into the washer/dryer with the shut-offs closed.
I've seen inlet valve solenoids fail in the open position or in the closed position. I've never seen a control board that sent open messages randomly. (Sometimes, there is damage to the control board or corrosion or damaged wiring that stops the control board from sending the open/closed message to the solenoid.)
o.k test the a) water supply cold. read your instr. manual some model during the cycles coming cold water other hot water, read for is acting abnormally. b) TESt the timer see the diagram> tight any wires connector loose or corrosion, or dirty. see the w.diagram how the timer control any function of the washer. God bless you
Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.
F2 code is a drain issue. If you are not using he detergent you can cause slow draining and then you will get the code. Try using less detergent. Also, try disconnecting the power to the washer to reset controls.
if it fills but not wash at all suspect the pressure switch its the switch where you select the water fill small med large behind that switch will be a dome looking piece with a vinyl hose connected to it try spin drain first if all that works replace the dome switch
