Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
I washed a load of clothes and water is everywhere....it is leaking out of the little hole for the filter on the front....I opened and rinsed the filter even though it was not full of anything. When I put the filter back in....it does not tighten up completely and water still continues to pour out. It looks like silicone or a lubricant is on the filter parts and I need to lube or just need a whole new basket all together. There are no visible cracks or anything wrong with it.....but can't get the water to stop and even though I tighten the filter back in.....it still leaks.
Hello SKW914.. Here is a link for the service manual http://188.8.131.52/contents/Laundry/WM1814/WM1814_Service_Manual.pdf
If you look on pages 35 and up, you will see the filter trap assembly and all the surrounding hardware. If after you reinstalled the filter ( with a new gasket) and it is still leaking there.. you may need to replace the assembly itself if you are sure it is properly threaded in and not crossed. You can use vaseline on the threads and gasket. I am assuming that you verified it is truly leaking from the filter compartment and not the front door. The hinges on the front door get damaged if you use detergent and fill it to the full mark.. they don't tell you to use about 1/4 of that and if you continue to fill it up to the mark..the run off trickles down and is caustic to the hinges and then the door won't seal right.. Make sure you verify the source of that leak before replacing anything you don't need.
let me know if I can help you any further.. Good Luck
