With LG dishwashers: after starting, 1st, DW pumps out any remaining water, 2nd, DW fill fresh water, 3rd, main wash motor starts, which is normally a whirring sound. (If you here grinding or rattling, then you have a problem.)

Machine stopped and bells rang

It sounds like the water pump has seized judging from the noise that you were hearing.
When the water seals become old and worn, water seeps through and ends up in the pump motor bearings, which corrode and eventually fail.
Open the machine up and check the pump, they are not repairable, will have to be replaced should this be the case.

Lg dishwasher noise

This is very bizarre. Very likely the debris you found could have caused some damage to the dishwasher parts. If you have taken photos of the experience may be a good idea to send to the manufacturer and ask them to replace the affected parts without cost to you. This is the least they should do.

Car would not start so i replaced starter motor.still wont start

Check power levels and then try and jump it. If nothing you may have a short thats some that is hard to trace back check all point of contact all the way to spark plugs make sure you are getting firer to the plugs. You may have to take it in. Now make sure the new starter is in line properly

F&P GW712 stopped on rinse cycle and motor made whirring sound. After stopping and starting it water finally out. Sounded sick.

The pumps on F&P washers are known to make whirring, and screeching noises. It could mean that the pump is failing and that it should be changed.
It is not a big job, and takes very little time, as long as the machine has been emptied before the job is started.
Probably best to call a tech, because he/she can check for blockage and also check the pump motor 'resistance', which is reccomended by F&P.
TECH TIP To remove the pump motor, lean the machine back against the wall and study the pump and the 'latch' which secures it. Remove double wires, rotate the pump motor anticlockwise, 'unlatch' and comlete the removal. Disconnect the earth wire.
Replace the pump in reverse order...
Good luck....Nomess

Dishwasher fills, when the pump is supposed to start it just whir

Hello, sounds like a broken wash impeller or a stripped drive impeller (the piece that fits inside the impeller). These two parts are driven by the wash motor and propell the water through the spray arms. good luck

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. They are inexpensive. Can be a little tough to replace but I can walk you through it. You can purchase a coupler here.
