Open the door. At the bottom of the gasket on the machine there are three little holes. The is where the water drains. Make certain they are not plugged. Use a close hanger or tweezers to pull what's pugging it or push in threw to unclog it. If that doesn't work, look to see if the door is crooked.
Those things get clogged easy if you have pets that shed hair. Should be checked once a month.

I have this same problem. What I do is carefully clean the part of the glass door where it meets the rubber gasket when you close the door. Bits of crud tend to accumulate there and break the seal between the smooth glass and the rubber gasket. This causes small amounts of water to leak out.

I don't use an abrasive cleanser. I generally clean it when it is dry and crusty with my hand or with my fingernails if it stubborn. You don't want to scratch the smooth glass surface. fingernails are much softer than glass and won't scratch the glass.

I also take a look at the rubber gasket and see if there is any crud sticking on that and very gently clean it off when it is dry and crusty. If the gasket gets torn, you'll probably need to replace it. I don't know how much that would cost. This should stop the dribbles.

Cheers,
Zac

Water leaking bottom front door


Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.

During the wash and rinse cycle I have water seeping out of the bottom of the door on my LG washer. WM2277HW.


Give a good clean around the door seal and make sure you close it firmly.This does usually fix it but you can also twist the door manually to help the seal.

LG WM-2277HB washer does not drain and make rattling noise.


I would guess that the impeller has come off the pump motor shaft. You can disassemble and push it back on, but it will come off again. I don't know if some type of adhesive would work, but I just replace the pump motor.
Drain water from small drain hose (or by removing filter) Remove the screw in the plastic recess by the filter, then use a putty knife on the left or right side to pop out the recess. Remove two more screws holding pump body to front frame of washer. Pull washer about 18 inches away from wall and tilt it back to lean against wall to allow access to the pump through the large rectangular hole in the base of the washer. There is a plastic locking tab holding the pump body to the plastic washer base, but don't worry if you break that, as the screws (removed earlier) will hold the pump back on just fine. Pump motor is held onto pump body with three more screws. Replace pump motor with a new one and reassemble. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, this one might rate a 4.5 or a 5. Not too bad.

Leaking is rarely, if ever, caused by the drain pump. Small leaks can come from using too much soap, which backs up in the dispenser area and leaks down inside the machine, or larger leaks from a cut in the door gasket.

Water Leaking from pre-wash and main wash cold water solenoid


We had the small leak problem. It was a cut in the bellows at the door. Lower side. We could see it if we just spread the gasket just inside the door.

Leak


It sounds like you have a leak somewhere around the door bellow. This is the rubber boot that seals the wash tub to the door frame. Pull the folds back and inspect around the entire perimeter of the rubber. You could have a small rip or tear somewhere. There are a series of small holes in the bottom of the bellow that are supposed to be there. This is the allow any standing water to drain back into the wash tub. If you cannot find any obvious signs of leaks, remove the lower panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then off. Start the washer on a normal wash and watch for any leaks. If the door bellow leaks, the front counterweight (usually a concrete block) will begin to get wet and drip. This could also be an indication of the bellow clamp around the wash tub being loose. If the leak starts to pool under the washer and run out the front, this is usually an indication of a drain pump leak or drain line leak. Please inspect the washer with the panel removed and the washer on a load and post back and let me know. Go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature for a quicker response. I hope this helps you.

PS One other item. On the left hand side of the door bellow is the a dispenser tube that penetrates through the bellow and allows water to enter the wash tub. Sometimes the dispenser tube is not seated all the way into the rubber (should be seated past the flange) and it will dispense water behind the rubber instead of into the wash tub. Just something else to consider...
