Unplug electrical cord, wait one minute then plug back in. Sorry this is all I can tell u as I cannot find a parts diagram anywhere on Internet, not only is LG not helping u they don't want anyone else to help either by keeping their drawings secret. You might try sears partsdirect.com and talk to tech.

I have notice this problem with a lot of front loaders. I would check the manufacture warranty to see with is covered and if you bought an extended warranty, use it, keep your receipts for your previous purchases.

If I had this problem, here is how I would approach it.
Start by finding and writing down the complete model and serial number.
Go to "SearsPartsDirect" web site and type in the make and model of the machine.
When the schematic comes up , look closely at the pictures and see if there is a drive belt on your model.
If so, I would start with that being the problem.
It should be slipping.
Replacing it is a pretty big job, it needs to come all apart.
Could be because the machine is overloaded.
I do not mean you have too many clothes in it, but that could be the case.
Start by putting a half load into the machine and see if it still does this.
Remember also, heavy clothes full of water can stress even the strongest model.
God bless your efforts.

Yes very normal in a front loader for clothes to be dripping wet but you may see little to no standing water.

that would be the bearing and housing gone on the drum, if you can lift the drum with your fingers at the bottom of the drum in the door hatch even by putting lifting inside then the bearing has gone. the plastic is the drum.housing usually were the bearing housing is. if there is a lot of movement then the bearing has gone. usually the front bearing but you will need to remove the drum and separated the drum to remove the drum then the bearing, rust on clothing is the bearing as its the only part in the drum that is metal.

Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
E1 in Samsung Front Loaders: It means the machine has detected an error in inlet water filter or the water pressure. Some of my sources indicate E1 could also be a leakage error It could all mean a faulty sensor but you should check th water lines, the door seals and the floor beneath the machine for tell-tale signs of a leaking system. Is the system filling up with water then halting with an E1 error or can you complete an entire cycle?
If you can fill the washer, but it faults with and E1, and can go no further, my research shows a common cause for the problem is the PVC tube connecting the pressure sensor to the drum has experienced a problem. In some modern washers, the water level is measured and regulated with a pressure sensor connected to the tub with a plastic tube. As the water level rises inside the drum, the pressure rises inside the sealed tube. The tube can sometimes become detached or even plugged with lint, soap or wash grime. Check the pressure sensor line to make sure it is attached to the drum and is completely unobstructed by foreign objects or deposits. If so, clean the debris and/or reattach the tube to the drum and try running starting a cycle. If you don't get the E1 code - Hooray, everyone has clean clothes again :-)
If this does not work, here is a link to a Washing Machine User Blog which might be able to offer more experts and more specific information http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/washers

Try two things: Add several cups bleach to the tub and run it a complete cycle. When not in use, leave the door open so it will air out.
