Leaking Door LG WM2277HW

I have changed the large grey gasket...still leaking. When the rinse cycle begins and the water starts to pour out from the top of the door, the basket begins to spin and the water overtops the grey gasket and spills over into the glass that is on the door goes thru the crack into the door and then down the front of the machine. The old gasket was fine, but when I took apart the glass on the door water had collected inside? It kinda seems like there should be a seal on the door also? I tried the shifting of the door and every other suggestion made. I have done all of this after I had a repairman come 3 times and did everyhting that he knows to do? HELP!!!

    Hey thanks for the suggestion. I already tried that and ran the rinse and spin cycle by itself with no soap?? Still no luck. What do you guys think of putting a silicone around the glass on the door? We have spent several hours watching and taking apart things to figure out where the leak was coming from and it is definitely the glass b/c when you take apart the door water collected inside. Thanks again for your help.

    YEAH!!! I got it finally. Well...my husband figured it out. He bought a ribbed piece of plastic rubber, siliconed it all the way around the door at the edge where the glass meets the metal and NO MORE LEAKING!! After many attempts by the repairman 6 months or so later it is fixed. I didn't want to celebrate too soon so I washed my usual 2-3 loads a day for almost a wek now and NO MORE LEAKING. I hope this helps all of you looking for a do it yourself fast, inexpensive solution.

Hi my name is joyce
have you tried using he detergent, if not this will make the suds back up in the door and push their way out the bottom of the door even if you have replaced the gasket. the front loaders are very sensitive when it comes to sudsing. if they get to many suds in pump they will give you problem, use about 1 tbs oil in wash ben and run cycle to get rid of suds that may be in pump, then see if this gets rid of problem, if not you may want to call a service tech. let me know if I can help find you someone.

Water is leaking when the rinse/spin cycle begins


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

I have a LG WM2277HW front loader washer . The door doesn't close all the way. It locks, but is kind of loose. I don't get any error messages, and it cycles fine(washes fine), but as soon as it starts...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If it is physically possible on your machine I would suggest that the door catch need adjusting, either that or it's broken but the door sensor still thinks it's OK ;-0)
Suggest a service call required ;-0)
Sorry,

Leaking water under front edge of machine?


Open the door and gently pull on the grey rubber gasket and check all around it for holes / tears. There are three tiny holes in the 'wall' at the bottom that are supposed to be there, but you should not see any other tears. I just found a large tear on mine that causes leaks when I run very large loads. I am going to try to fix it with Gorilla Tape, otherwise I will probably have to buy the whole new gasket. It seems like it would be a real pain to replace!

Water has started pouring out from under my washer


Hello, you've indicated this problem only arrises during the rinse cycle, is that correct ? The leak doesn't occur during the wash cycle initial fill level ? I want to distinguish the difference because there has been a repair tip issued by whirlpool for the duet and sport washer's. This may be applicable to your machine. If it is indeed only during the rinse, the problem is within the door assembly. Specifically the glass and it's "seat" to the frame. Let me know, I'll watch for your reply. macmarkus :)

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.
