If your LG washer stops as it reaches the rinse and spin cycle, it is a good indicator that water is not draining from the washer as effectively as it should. Draining and spinning go hand-in-hand, therefore if there is a draining problem, there also is a spinning problem and vice versa. Draining problems in LG washers stem from clogged drain filters. Unclog the drain filter and your washer will cease to stop at the rinse and spin cycle.
