I have a LG front loader washer model wm-2032hw. The seal around the door is ripped on the bottom and is leaking on the floor. Would I be able to replace the seal myself? How difficult would it be?

You need to remove the spring loaded wire from around both sides of the seal. The back one is accessable after you remove the front side of the seal. LG does make a special plier (actually, one plier for the front, a different one for the rear) to spread the spring apart to aid in removal and reinstallation, but you can do it without the special toolls with a little effort. On a scale of 1 - 10, I would rate it a 3. Go for it !

Lg tromm washer leaking from front door


We have the same problem with our LG washer. Don't think the door can be adjusted but I'm not for sure. I think the gasket is wore out but haven't checked on fixing the problem yet because it barely leaks.

If leaking behind unit : check water hose , is it placed properly ?

I have water leak out of our front loader, it leaks out rite in the middle from the bottom of the door. I am not sure if it is from the small hole in the door or if it because of a bad seal. The rubber...


the wire ring just keeps the seal in place,, make sure the bottom of the door glass is clean,, if so look at the seal and see if it is pushed in alittle around the bottom,,you can take a hair dryer and heat it up while pulling it back out ,, ( just the lip part) if that doesnt work you will need to replace the whole gasket

Water has leaked from bottom


do you mean from the bottom of door? if so open door and run your fingers around the rubber gasket to see if there is any forign matter or rips, and check the small drain hole on the inside bottom of gasket, if there is a tear you could repair with a bicycle innertube repair patch

LG WM2688HM front loader is leaking water around the door seal


this may be coming from the soap dispenser and running down round the door way and to the bottom- investigate that first. otherwise the seal may be worn/ damaged and needs replacing.

LG WM-2032HW front loader washer gives error goes OE and IE


"OE" is really "DE"= drain error. Clean out filter behind access door on lower left corner front panel of machine. (there will be some water in machine)
"IE" = inlet error. machine took too long to fill. clean out inlet water screens where the hoses connect onto machine.
