my 2005 lg wm1814cw front load washer began to stop after wash cycle, would not spin or drain. I tried all the hints online about unplugging and spinning drum, still not working so called repair service through Sears. They came out and replaced pump motor, said all was fixed and left. The washer still does not complete cycle, wont spin and wont drain. Second repair call zip tied drain hose to pipe and prounced it working again. Third repairman came today, he managed to get it to work through entire cycle. Then put light load in and it worked without soap. He again said he thought it was working correctly. I added soap to load he had put in and it worked through agitation and again stopped. No error msg flashes, machine just cuts off. HELP any ideas?

Does the machine beep when it stops? Are you positive no error messages show up? Is the door locked or unlocked when it stops? Is there still water in the tub when it stops?

No it doesnt beep it shows no code now that pump has been replaced. The repair man today just said that sometimes might be control board or panel and that it wouldnt be worth repair. It runs fine with no laundry in it but wont drain or spin with more than just a few pieces such as udnerwear or childrens clothing. He said that sometimes lg just act "weird" and it goes along with that brand.
