A LG washing machine that doesn’t proceed into the next cycle can be a frustrating and confusing problem to resolve. This problem can be caused by a range of reasons, from the simplest to more complex. We will discuss the most frequent reasons why your LG washer won’t advance to the next cycle and then provide step-by-step instructions for fixing it. This guide is written for newbies and experts. It will show you how to solve the issue and get your LG washer back in good order within the shortest amount of time. It’s all dependent on the model of LG washer that you own. A top-loader LG dishwasher will not advance to the spin or drain cycle in the event that the lid switch malfunctions.

LG washers that aren’t able to finish their cycle could also have a malfunctioning timing device or defective water-level pressure switches. On a vertical top-loading modular LG washer a faulty shifter assembly or a failed drain pump could stop the washing machine mid-cycle. A lot of suds may cause this washer to stop running before the cycle has finished. A LG front-load washer can be stopped by a damaged door lock for the washer, a malfunctioning main controller board or a malfunctioning motor control board. This type of washer often emits a digital error message when the control of the washer detects an issue and shuts down the cycle.


Replace the washer lid switch: The lid switch on top-load LG washers is a safety switch that checks whether the lid is shut. If the basket turns, the lid must be shut. If not, the washer will not spin or drain. Certain top-load LG models need the lid of the washer to be closed before the drive motor is started. Top-load LG washers that have top-loading will not fill up if the lid is open. Replace the switch if the lid switch fails to recognize whether the lid is closed.

Change the LG washer-shifter assembly: The bottom of the gear box is where the shifter assembly is located, also known as the actuator-in a top-load washer. The motor that is in the shifter assembly moves the drive system from agitation to the spin modes. The shifter’s sensor is able to monitor the position of the drive system during the wash cycle. If the sensor, motor or mechanical parts of the shifter assembly fail, the washing machine will stop and displays an error code. If the shifter assembly malfunctions you should replace it.

The LG washer’s door lock assembly requires replacement: A front-load LG washer comes with a safety button as well as a latch and locking mechanism. The door will not lock when any of the components fail while it is open. If a component fails while the door is closed, it won’t open. If any component fails, replace the entire assembly.

Replace the LG washer’s main controller: The main electronic control board (also known as the mother board) is responsible for the timing and execution of washer functions. It regulates the drain and fill valves pumps, in addition to the drive motor.

Replace the LG washer timer: The timer, also known as a cycle selector, is the dial is used to control the cycle of a LG washing machine using mechanical controls. The timer lets the LG washer go through cycles, from initial filling up to the final spin. Replace the timer when it doesn’t let the washer move through its cycles.

Replace or repair the LG drain pump for the washer: The drain pump is accountable for removing water from the washer during wash cycles. The impeller blades’ seal, impeller blades and bearings on the pump could wear out. A pump driven by a belt can have its belt fail and the pulley could shatter. A humming noise when you notice that the LG washer is full of water is a common sign of a failed pump. It is possible to repair the pump in some cases by clearing the debris off it and replacing the seal or fixing wiring problems. You may replace the pump if it is not possible to repair or replace it.

Replace the LG motor control board in the washer: The motor control board can be found on the left side of the drive motor inside a LG front-load washer. It’s typically found in the bottom of the washer. It controls the speed of the drive motor as well as the direction it is directed for the spin and tumble actions. If the motor does not run, the motor control board might require replacement.

Replace the LG washer water-level pressure switch: The water-level pressure switch measures the level of water in the tub. The washer will not fill properly if the pressure sensor has been damaged. It may not fill as it should or overfill to the point where it overflows. If the pressure control doesn’t accurately determine and control the level of water in the washer, it is time to replace it.
