SOURCE: Kitchenaid Top Loader leaks

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, 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 tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: LG Top Loader Fuzzy Logic 5.5. The water

Hi,
No you just need to get the drain hose up higher...the water is siphoning out and is either caused by the end of the drain hose still in water and not having an air gap or the hose is not going up higher then the top of your washer...
Lifting the hose up should give you an air gap and get the hose high enough to stop the siphoning...

SOURCE: Hi, we have a LG

working on lg for a while we have talked to tech suport and they don't want to admit they have a issue with these units.. first of all they say if on a pedastal they will give you problems but yet they sale the darn things... what we have found though is there is a device called a haul densor and it is very easy to replace you have to remove the backof unit panel and gain access to the back of tub... make sure it is connected well as it is on a rotor looking device called a stator assembly... if it is connected well and you have made sure it is level you have a bad haul sensor...thsi is what determines the speed of drum and slows down unit if getting out of balanced.. it is not that expensicve and pretty easy to fix.... hope this helps you out...

LG Fuzzy Logic 8.5 kg washing machine WF-T855A Turbo Drum I sensor will not fully spin, stops with 2 minutes to go till end and clothes are in a ball, not spun properly,never had a problem until now??


Unplug the machine over night and then plug it back in the morning. this should reset the internal cycle back to manufacturers specs.

This problem occurs because someone may have opened the door during operations and the onboard computer recognized and remembered this, so it is now part of the standard operating proceedure.

Check the water inlet valve for condition, replace if faulty.
The main control board could also be at fault, but it is not common.

LG fuzzy logic top loader leaves black marks on white. Happens when doing a large wash-eg; blanket -it looks awful. I'm thinking the insides might need cleaning? How is this done and with what product


If this is moldy looking you should use 1 cup of bleach in the drum with no clothes on the longest wash cycle with the hottest water. But I believe this is oil from the drive train and the seals on the bottom of the drum are going bad. When you wash something heavy like the blanket, it leaks.

Run a hot wash with a Descaler which is available form most hardware stores.Marks on washing usually comes from a build up of detergent and softner between drums.

I have an LG Fuzzy Logic top loader. it keeps draining water out


If it's really as you described, when draining at the same time filling up, then it's a problem in the main control board. You'll need some electronics knowledge to repair it, or just replace the main board
