Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a LG WM2455H washing machine. I just noticed water on the floor and it looks like it is coming from some sort of an overflow outlet just below the cold water connection. Is there such a thing on this model?

What you speak of is a vent. To prevent this from happening, make sure you use only HE detergent, and no more than one tablespoon per load. (half that if you have 2X concentrate, etc.) You most likely have a build up of soap inside the machine. If your model has the tub clean cycle, run that with no clothes and some Whirl-away hot tub cleaner, 3 Ah- fresh tablets, or some Smelly Washer Cleaner. If no tub clean cycle, run that with the hottest, longest cycle. You may have to run it twice. Then use the correct amount of soap. (and not more than a teaspoon of fabric softener if you use it, per cycle)

Model 4.3. Why is it leaking?


If possible see if you can locate the leak. Is it coming from the body of the machine (in which case it may cost a lot) or has, for example, a hose perished/split/come loose underneath around the pump and just needs sorting there (an inexpensive and fairly simple DIY fix).
Has it always leaked for you or has it just started?
Check the outlet hose is not kinked or blocked or the outlet pipe blocked or restricted so is backing up and pouring onto the floor.

Water on the floor


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

LG Washer WM2455H Tub Clean Problem


Yes, it's normal. It is a safety feature because of the hot water used during the tub clean cycle. It prevents the machine from opening while the tub clean cycle is in process.

Lg washer wm2455h leaking from bottom filter housing; there's nothing in the filter itself. Filter has proper gasket.


Make sure the drain hose is not plugged by lowering the end below any water in the machine--it should flow out freely. If ok, look carefully at the filter housing for any warping or cracking of the plastic lid or case. Make sure the clamp fits tightly. If water does not flow from the drain hose properly, try 'back-washing' the filter element--you may have to replace it if you have difficulty.

Water out of washing machine.


Sounds like the machine is not at fault. The problem is probably the pipework that takes the water out of the building, it could be made up with lime & wash powder residue. Try running some water into the wall outlet pipe, & see if it overflows, if it does you need to dismantle & clean it

Water filing


Possible your outlet hose is at floor level; this must have a certain height, the height may be marked behind the machine. The hose should reach this height (approx 30 inches) from the floor level, and then go down into your wall outlet or whatever. The outlet pump pumps this water out over the height. Check this out.
