Question about LG WM2277H Front Load Washer
I believe I have a clogged drain on my WM2233H. I discivered water on the floor today after running a load. After some checking of all the usual suspects - the hose connections - I discovered water in the base section in the front left - just below the drain pump filter. I opened the drain plug to let out any water, which was barely a trickle, and then checked the drain pump filter and that was empty. From the was the water drained our of the drain plug, I am thinking there is something blocking that I cannot see. Any advice?
Check on the back of the unit just below where the 2 water lines come in. This is the location of the tub air vent. If you see evidence that water has trickled out of this vent then you probably had an oversudsing issue.
There is a mushroom valve inside the machine that seals off this vent when the machine is spinning out. Often, if oversudsing has occurred this mushroom valve will get soap residue on the shaft and keep it from shutting all the way. When water leaks out this vent on the back it tends to make its way under the machine and pools up right in front of the drain filter housing.
If this is your case, just make sure you are using an HE (high efficiency) detergent as it is low sudsing. Also make sure to only use 2-3 tablespoons per load.
Hope this helps, please rate my solution or ask additional questions if needed.
