The pump is easy to replace:
#1 Use a shop vac and pull all the water out of the drain line. This will keep you from having to clean up about 1 gallon of water off of the floor.
#2 Lift the front of the machine enough for you to get under and see.the pump just inside the front of the washer.
#3 Lift the 2 retaining clips off of the pump. This will allow you to pull the pump off of the motor.
#4 Remove the 2 clamps off of the hoses.
#5 Install the new pump into the hoses, and reinstall the clamps.
#6 With the retaining clips installed into the motor housing, install the pump.
#7 Attach the retaining clips, and set the washer back on the ground.
You have now replaced the washer pump.

I had this same problem and it was not the supply connections or filters! Under the machine is a rubber bellows. The bellows had sprung a leak. The part was about $10 from Sears and I repaired it in about 30 minutes. The machine is heavy so be careful. Get a friend to make sure the machine won't rock or tip when you're making the repair.

Hello, if your washer leaks only when filling then you have to check these:
Air-gap device- The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
THE TUBE - There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak
inlet spout- Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tube. If the spout cracks or breaks free of it's mounting, it can cause a leak.

Actually, it's most likely not a clog, I've seen this rare problem before, but it sounds like your machine could be missing what LG calls a "mushroom valve". This is just a piece of plastic with a mushroom shaped top, and it slips down in the top of the machine, and it suppose to allow air to pass through, but block any water from coming through. There is a large hose called a bellow that surrounds this, and connects to the tub with a screw style clamp, and then connects the same way to the back of the cabinet.
This isn't to hard to check, if you have a Phillips screwdriver handy. You can remove the top of the washing machine with two screws, and the top cover slides backward, and then you pull it up to pop it off.
Once you have the top of the cover off, you can see the large black hose (bellow) and you'll notice the screw clamp in place, you can easily loosen the clamp up, and pop one end of the bellow off, that attaches to the tub, and see if you have the mushroom valve in place.
