LG WASHER Direct Drive won't spin

The drums turns in normal wash mode but as soon as the indicator light blinks between wash and spin the drum stops spinning and a strange rumbling noise is heard. We did do the pull plug out for 1 minute/open door 6 times in less than 12 seconds thing. WE have an LG Direct Drive front load washer. Do you know what it might be?

Chosen Solution

Cause 1

Lid Switch Assembly

The lid switch assembly prevents the washer from spinning when the lid is open. If the lid switch assembly fails, the washer will not spin. To determine if the lid switch assembly is defective, use a multimeter to test the lid switch for continuity. If the lid switch does not have continuity, replace it.

Cause 2

Motor Coupling

The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. If the washer is overloaded, the motor coupling will fail in order to protect both the motor and transmission. The motor coupling can also fail due to normal wear. Inspect the motor coupling to determine if it is broken. If the motor coupling is broken, replace it.

Cause 3

Drive Belt

Inspect the drive belt to determine if it is broken or if it is loose on the pulleys. If the drive belt is broken or loose, replace it.
