Question about LG WM1812C Front Load Washer
We've had our washer for 2 years with no problems. When my husband recently did a load of wash and I noticed suds leaking out of the door. I figured it would resolve itself on next load with less detergent, but I notice some water is still leaking through -- no suds, just water. I checked the door seal and noticed a slight knick the size of a clipped topnail along the side of the door where the leak seems to occur, which may have been there all along but I wondered if this could be causing the leak. Seems rather sudden and I can't figure out how in the world this knick could possibly have occurred. Is replacing this seal a costly repair? Thank you in advance for your assistance.
No. It is not a costly affair. Order a new door boot seal from your local agent and fit it yourself. If you lift the outer lip of the seal on the front of the machine you will see a wire that runs all the way around the seal and attatches to a spring. Remove this wire and pull the seal free. On the other side you will find a strap holding the back of the seal in place. Loosen the strap and the seal comes away. Fit the new seal in reverse order ensuring that the drain hole/s are at the bottom of the seal.
