Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Leaking from the back

So I have tried to pin point the problem and this is what I have come up with.

If you are standing behind the washer the leak is coming from the top right hand side. I see a bellow leading from the dispenser (I believe) and to the drum and off to the left of that is a hose leading to the drain hose assembly and drum. I think one of those is leaking because when I had back off of the washer and I ran it that is were the water came from and that is were it is most wet. I have disassembled the control panel so I can see this from the top but when I ran the washer twice after I thought I had found the problem but it didn't leak at all.

Although my knowledge og the LG machine is limited i can tell you I remember there being an issue with the water backing up through little sensors(mushrooms they were called because of there shape), there are 2 of them on the top; of the drum area and can be pulled right out, they merely "float" up nad down and overtime become "stuck" form the soap suds building up around them , so if you lkoacet them and pull them out, simply clean them off and sorrounding hole in which they came, you should be fine, also very important that yo uuse HE deteregent.HE detergent is specifically formulated asnot to suds up causing these problems. hope this is helpful

My water is leaking from the back rear of my engine. What could it be leaking from

If it is antifreeze could be a head gasket, cracked head, leaking heater hose.
If it is water then your rain drainage around the wiper linkage is plugged up.
If it is washer fluid you have a break in the washer fluid line.

My Whirlpool Cabrio washer has some coins trapped in the inside of the machine. I need to find out how to remove the agitator to check inside for more coins.

They are not in your agitator. they are in the pump on the bottom left if you are standing behind the machine. Be VERY careful. That litle pump seems to be the beginnig of many leaking problems.

Its leaking from underneath at the front and causing electric to trip

Thoroughly check the door seal for any sign of a tear or hole in it.
Try placing a sheet of newspaper under the front of the washer, this should help pin- point where the water is coming from.
Also , remove the top cover, and check the hose from the soap dispenser to the drum, as sometimes these can leak.
Hope this helps you.

During fill up, machine makes a high pitch squeal

Have you checked your hoses for a leak? We could pin point which hose was leaking by trying all cold, then all hot...although changing both at the same time and on a routine basis is a great idea.
