LG WD-8016C Front Load Washer leaks from the bottom

I have an LG WD-8016C that is slightly less than 1 year old and it leaks large amounts of water from the bottom. Not underneath the door, but actually under the bottom front edge. A repairman said that it is not covered under warranty, but that it is likely something is stuck i nteh washer and causing the problem. Anyone heard of this problem or have any possible causes and solutions for me. LG doesn't have anything in the book on this. Please help

Re: LG WD-8016C Front Load Washer leaks from the bottom

Crawls, usually all leaks are visible. Im surprised the repairman did not actually get to the source of it. Your drain pump sits on the bottom and it possibly could be the filter cap, hoses to the pump or pump itself. Another area to check is the despensor. There are a number of hoses to this which could be leaking. The bellow itself could have a cut in it somewhere along the bottom. I would call the repairman back and have him at least get to the source of the back.

Manual for LG wd-8016c . cold water is not going into machine

If you have cold water pressure to the machine and the valve filter is clear you probably have a failed cold water inlet valve. Replacing the inlet valve unit should fix the problem....Not unusual. Not a big job........Good luck....Nomess

I bought my LG Intellowasher WD-8016C second hand and have no manual. Does it need to be washed occasionally with washing sda. There is a bit of mould around the seal. How do I clean this.

Manual suggests Exterior with household detergent. Do not use methylated spirits, diluents or similar products.
For internal, dry around the washer door and run washer through a complete cycle using just hot water... and repeat if needed.
Not sure about mould.... not in manual.

Top loader door wont open

Something has caused the washer to not release the door. Is there an error code that is flashing (FE?). A locked door can be due to too much water in the basket, suds causing false water detection (should be using HE), or perhaps the drain is clogged.

If you are sure that the water is not going to spill out on floor, then you might be able to get door open by unplugging the unit and waiting a few minutes (mine took an hour) for the electric lock to release.
