Please rate my solution.
Disconnect the machine from the power. Open top hatch by removing two screws in the back and sliding top lid back and up to remove.
Check down from the top of the machine and feel around the door seal. Make sure there are no holes or tears in the seal. Try and refit seal. there is a metal ring around the drum and also around the front panel where the door seal joins. Make sure the are tight and fit in properly.
The retaining ring inserts into a groove in the rubber seam around the perimeter of the door where it attaches to the door frame. To reinstall, first make sure the door boot is fitting snugly around the door frame opening. Sometimes when the retaining spring comes loose, the rubber may pull away from the door frame. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place with your thumbs. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I would suggest using a blunt object to clear the drainage holes in the rubber seal. I'd advise against removing the seal for this problem. LG has special pliers to remove the spring loaded wire from around the front of the door seal and another for the larger size one where the rubber seal attaches to the outer drum. The second one is much harder to reattach, even somewhat difficult with the washer's front off if you do not have the special pliers.
