LG WASHER won't drain or spin

I opened and cleaned up the terminal in the door interlock, replaced and could hear the drain pump running. Put washer on cycle and washed but won't drain or spin. What next

The open close repeatedly technique has worked in the past. Seems to trick the default response in the software on the PC Board. However, the pump is likely weak and failing or clogged is the likely situation. The pump can work temporary until it fails again. So expect draining problems again. Just document how often it occurs to let you know when the pump will likely fail big time.

the unplugged open and close door got me back in, remove wet clothes, drain water, and restart, low water, small empty load setting, but will not spin, and growling noise still present. Might be the drum of my front load LG. thank you so much for your info. I will buy the next several vets meals, proudly XO

I had the same issue. The pump drain was clogged with a cloth napkin and bobby pins. It is located on the front in the small panel bottom left side. Since mine stopped before spinning the machine was full of water. I used the small drain tube on the left (inside the panel) to slowly let out a lot of the water, then had a pan and lots of towels ready for when I opened the filter on the right side in the panel. As you start to unscrew it out lots more water comes out. Clean thoroughly and replace. Did the trick.
