Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

Water leaking under the washing machine NOT through the door or any hoses; when a light is shined under the machine, I can see the water dripping. I pulled a sock from the fold of the seal, and it appears that the bottom part of the seal is not sealed all of the way. Does a seal need to be replaced, if that is the problem, or does the seal need to be redone?

Re: Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

Most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.

Water leaks from under washing machine after each wash

If it is a top load washer, you can tilt the machine back to where you can look under it to see if you can see the leak. If it is a front load washer, you will need to take the top of the unit off and start checking all parts that have water running through it. I would start by looking around the door seal for any rips, tears or holes. If you don't see anything there, look under the tubs at the drain pump and hoses. Sometimes underwires out of bras put a hole in the tub-to-pump hose.

I have LG WD -1050F Intellowasher 7kg front load washer, while operating time getting water leakage under front door. need solution.


The problem is due to the rubber boot is been torn that is causing you the leak. You have to check the rubber boot for leaks by removing the clamp assembly that secures the rubber boot to the outer lip of the door opening. Peel off the rubber boot then inspect it for any holes where it may be leaking. The rubber boot in your washer can be accessed only when you remove the front panel. This requires the removal first of the top panel then the console. Also check your inlet hoses on the outside of machine, also check the connections inside the panel in back.

Thank you !!

Leaking water from the front of the washer checked the hoses and they are not leaking

If this is a top load washer the problem is usually the pump. If you can tilt the washer up at the front and support with two pieces of 2x4. Shine a light under the maching and take a mirror to observe. Fill the washer 1/2 full of water and advance the time into the spin cycle. Observe under the maching to see where it is leaking. The pump is located at the front of the washer. If the pump is leaking, replace the pump.

Water leak

Remove the lower panel under the washer door and inspect the interior. The panel is removed by loosening and removing the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed the panel will drop down, then off. Inspect the following areas:

- Check all hoses for leaks, cracks, holes and loose connections. Check the seal where the drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub connects to the intake of the drain pump. Make sure the drain hose from the pump to the standpipe is connected snug to the pump and is not leaking.
- Check the drain pump to ensure it is not leaking. The clean out reservoir cap (if not fitted properly) can leak around the seal.
- Check the door bellow (gray rubber boot) to ensure it is not leaking. HINT: A tale-tell sign of bellow leakage is wetness showing up on the front washer counterweight. This is a concrete block mounted to the front of the wash tub. It is not supposed to be wet.
- Check the pressure switch air hose to ensure it is connected to the air dome on the side of the wash tub. This is a small rubber hose that runs from the pressure switch in the top left rear of the washer (viewed from the back, with the washer top panel removed) to the bottom right hand side of the wash tub. However, if this hose were to come off the air dome fitting, the wash tub would continously try to fill and water would begin to pour from the bottom of the wash tub. If this does not sound like your symptoms, disregard this step.
- Check the seam where the wash tub shells meet. There is a rubber tub gasket that seals the two tub halves together. If the seal is bad, water will begin to collect and drip along this seam.
- Check the tub for cracks. This is NOT common, but it can happen.

The following link explains the step-by-step process of checking and cleaning the drain pump:

I mention this link, because it gives you some guidance on how to access the pump and how avoid the possible mess involved with water pouring out of the pump.

If you discover the door bellow as the the cause for your leak, please refer to this link:

I hope this leads you in the right direction and helps you resolve your problem. Please post back if you have any further questions.
