Question about LG Washing Machines
And I assume you have power in the outlet?

It sounds to me like the safety switch for the washer lid is faulty or just out of adjustment (you'll find an arm sticking out of the lid that corresponds to a similarly shaped but larger hole in the jam of the lid and that is where the switch actuator should reside).
Or, your timer might be at fault, since it completes cycles once you manually advance to the next one.
Eliminate the safety switch as the possible fault before moving on to the timer itself, as the timer is more costly.

It sounds like you have a broken motor coupling. This is a very inexpensive and simple repair.
If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking. The following link explains how to replace one:
The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria. PS That "belt" you found is probably part of the rubber bushing that has come apart.

Did you try it in other cycles (delicate, permanent press, etc.)? The more symptoms - what works and doesn't allows better advice. Because right now it could be the control board, the timer, the drain pump and more.
Also you need to give us the model number off the id tag in your unit since that once keeps coming back as invalid.
