After washer fills with water and shortly after wash cycle starts (any cycle) the machine stops with no error code. Might run for 5 minutes but might stop as soon as it tries to rotate the drum... With only two towels loaded it stopped it a few minutes ago. It will however run a complete cycle if nothing but water and soap are loaded.

Does it start up again by itself after a few minutes ?

Check the power in the wall. Had one do similar things and there was an open neutral in his power.
Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Is the Start Button flashing ?

No open neutral. I just checked. It has been running fine for five years in the same place. This just started. It like clean water, but doesn't want to wash clothes...


Door switch is fine. Will restart immediately and no flashing start button.


Can a bad Hall-Effect sensor cause the system to stop when the drum tries to rotate with a load on it?

Two towels = out of balanced load. I would put 5-7 towels in During test runs.

What noises are coming from your machine?

No noises. Sounds from the washer are all normal. Stops with a full load, two towels, or a tee shirt. Yesterday morning's full load of towels are still wet and in two buckets.

 

Sounds from me are getting increasingly course.

If the hall sensor was bad, the main PCB would throw and error code, LE.  

 

When it stops, does the display go blank or does it continue to show run time?

Look for a loose connection at the noise filter.

The video on the link page shows the location and procedure for changing the noise filter in an LG Dishwasher. Where is it located on the washing machine?

I should have been more specific when I mentioned the link. I was referring to the video  on the page. Before I take the washer back apart, where will I find it?

Good catch on the video, I didn't even look at it, was merely showing what the part looked like.

Remove the top panel, three screws in back. Panel slides back and off. Follow the power cord inside the washer, it'll lead you straight to the noise filter.

Move on the main PCB. Follow the wires from the noise filter, take you right there. Disconnect-reconnect.

Disconnected and reconnected everything at PCB including noise filter. Put load of existing wet towels (4 big towels, socks and a running tee shirt) back in the washer added detergent selected Normal cycle and the Start. As soon as it tried to rotate the drum to weigh the load the unit shut off with no error code. Never got to the point of filling.
