Most likely it is a broken 'spider'. That's the 3 armed part that holds the inner drum to the hub. Not uncommon. Can be expensive to fix. Can be done yourself. Check out videos on YouTube or repairclinic or appliancepartspros.

Most top load washers have snap clips in front and hinges in back. You use a putty knife or equivalent to push in the clips(located between top and front of unit in the seem). Some others have screws on bottom near the legs that you unscrew and tilt front forward and then lift up and off. Good luck.

PE= pressure error. A water level error. Check hose to pressure sensor. Is it connected? Does it have a hole in it? Otherwise replace pressure sensor.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too. If all this does not work, check your pump for blockage.(ref manual re pump)

It could be damaged or worn bearings. It can also be a broken spider. The spider attaches to the inner drum and is part of the spindle assembly.

I'm sure you double checked, but I have forgotten to plug the connectors from the control back together before putting the top back on. Seems obvious but I've done it more than once. Good luck. (And make sure your house breaker isn't tripped)

The lid has hinges on the back so it rotates back from the front. The front is held in place but two metal clips. Push a metal spatula in the seam between the top and front to release the clips. Clips are about 1/4 in from each side.

i would guess you are getting a "tE" error code. that is a bad thermistor. pretty common. and it starts out as an intermittent error. it really is an easy fix. great online videos. check out appliancepartspros.com for both video and parts or repairclinic.com for video and parts. or youtube.com

If this is a front loader and older model check the spider arm on the back of the drum it may be corroded and putting the drum off center at low speed. I just replaced the drum to tub gasket and the spider arm which was severely corroded (name may not be correct go to the LG parts site)

I just finish repairing my LG front loader and this sounds like the same issue. The back of the drum has a spider arm and spindle arrangement (think that the name) the spider are was corroded and broke after 10 years, this puts the drum off balance and chews up the gasket. I had to also repair the wash tub where the drum had worn into it and JB Weld worked fine. It all seem to work fine now.

DL is indeed a door lock error. The code is generated when the CCU can't lock the door. Possible causes are door latch mechanism, connecting wiring, or the CCU. You could hear clicking from the CCU machine which indicated to me the CCU was trying to lock the door. It tries 6 times before setting the F/DL code.
?Check Door Lock/Switch Assembly for foreign objects
?Check Wire Harness connections to the Door Lock/Switch Assembly

All the best !
