    Question LG Washer WM2487HRMA - will not spin

    Model Number: WM2487HRMA
    Brand: LG
    Age: More than 10 years

    Machine will not spin. Have swapped rotor position sensor, rotor assembly, and stator assembly with no luck.

    Drum spins freely and smoothly by hand. Door switch seems to function properly, have not tried to switch that. Washer makes an intermittent clicking sound when in spin cycle - which is the same whether I have the rotor/stator assembly installed or not!

    Any ideas what my problem is?

    Update - I can get it to spin 46 rpm in diagnostic mode. Still makes noise like something is loose in it or something. Any help appreciated.

    Update #2 - Washer is glitching when it hits the rinse cycle. It sounds like gears grinding and the clock stops. No error messages.

    Hi Wendi,

    From this thread here: FIXED: WM3470HVA LG Washer not spinning, "grinding" sound.

    I see you found the drain pump bad and causing this problem on yours too?

    Yes. Some how a nickel got in there and clogged it up. Hubby replaced it and it is running wonderfully. Finally we have clean clothes.
