Any apliance repair store there is a store that is called Marcon that sells tools and appliance parts. but really all you need is a good pair of vise grips. It is a royal pain to replace the door seal. The only way that i can replace this is to take the whole front panel off. takes me aboutt 2 hours to replace without any special tools just vise grips

Why is door locked and won't open?


Hello. The door lock switch part number is 34001011 in case yours is defective. Usually, just unplug the unit, wait a few minutes, then plug it back in. The main board will unlock the door. On a front load washer, the easiest way to replace a defective door switch is by removing the spring clamp that holds the bellow onto the front of the unit, pulling the bellow aside nearest the lock and swapping it out. HOWEVER, putting that clamp *back on* can be a real headache--I'm able to replace the clamp by hand on the clamps with the smallest springs. The larger ones will require a threaded clamp spreader tool, available at better(larger) appliance parts dealers. If you are hesitant about attempting this, definitely call for service--if the bellow is re-attached incorrectly, it will leak or can be torn because of wrong positioning which can result in it rubbing against the spinning basket. I hope I helped you!

Door error code on LG wm2277hw how do you reset?


If you have a door error, you will need to replace the door latch. The easiest way to get at it is to remove the spring clamp around the outer surface of the door boot, remove the two phillips head screws holding the latch, unplug the electrical plug, and replace. This is easiest with a special clamp removal tool, but can be done without it. The latch can also be accessed from the top by removing the two screws on the bottom side of the plastic parts on the back of the top cover, then using the palms of your hands to sharply push the top toward the back about 2 inches, then lift the top up and off. Remember to disconnect power to the machine before dissassembly.

Need to replace door gasket


Remove the top cover by removing the 2 screws in the back.
Remove the dispenser drawer completely.  
Remove the 2 screws on front of the panel where the dispenser drawer was removed.  
Remove the screw on the right side behind the front panel.  
Disconnect the wire harness behind the panel.  
Starting on the dispenser side with your finger, pry forward the top of the control panel until it unsnaps.  Continue this all the way to the right and remove the control panel.  
Go to the bottom filter door and remove the door.  Unscrew the one screw below the filter cap.  Remove the plastic insert covering around the filter cap.  
Locate a small screw at the very bottom of the frame just below the filter cap and remove.  Sometimes there may be 2 but usually there is only one.
Open the door and locate the spring clamp usually located at the bottom of the door seal.  Remove the spring clamp.  This will loosen the front of the door gasket for removal from the frame.  
On the right of the door gasket is the door latch assembly.  Unscrew the 2 screws and set the latch hanging by the wire harness.
Remove the 4 or 5 top screws holding the front panel assembly.  Once they are removed, the front panel will lift up and out.
NOTE!!!  THIS JOB REQUIRES 2 SPECIAL TOOLS FROM LG TO REMOVE THE SPRING CLAMPS ESPECIALLY THE REAR CLAMP.  THE SPRINGS ARE SET VERY TIGHT SO IT IS NOT EASY TO REASSEMBLY WITHOUT THE SPECIAL TOOLS.

How easy to access the 3 screws?


Underneath. Don't see original post here, but to replace a pump (actually, just the pump motor) on an LG front load washer: Drain water out of small hose inside recess and remove access door cover (at lower left of machine). Remove one phillips head screw and use a plastic putty knife or similar tool to push in on left or right side of recess to remove the plastic recess cup. Now remove the two other phillips head screws visible. Tilt machine back and access pump Assembly from under machine. There is a tab that you will have to work loose. Disconnect electrical wires from pump at disconnect plug. You probably want to remove the hoses going to and away from the pump (squeeze clamps). Pump motor is easy to change out now with three more phillips head screws.

Not a hard task if you coat rims with liquid detergent before trying to install new seal.
Using thumb go slowly around rim working seal all the way back.
Replacing main spring can be done by working bottom to top and then hold left side of spring in place while you pull right side in with long nose pliers.A couple of minutes difficult work and your 90% done.
Care is required so as not to puncture seal,
Main point is to ensure seal is fully seated before applying spring.
Having machine laid on its back makes the job so much easier.

This job took an hour and 30 minutes, the hour spent checking the internet first.
Good luck
