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.

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 Pouring out of door, appliance stuck on wash


dishwasher leaking from the door or from the bottom of the door is common problem and yes its advisable to get it fixed.but if its having any other problem other then leaking then it has to be checked first.but leaking problem is common it can be solved.first from which part of the door area the leak is occuring that has to be checked.
Some common leaking trouble makers....
Leaks at the door:
Door gasket loose/torn
Corner gaskets or door baffle/vent gasket
Door lock/latch loose/broken
Split spray arm
Over filling with water...usually the level is just under the heating element is normal
Something leaking through the door...like the soap or rinse agent dispenser gasket, silverware basket button.
Door hinge(s) bent
Wrong soap was used...dish sink soap instead of dishwasher soap
Rinse aid being used with mechanically softened water ( makes foam or suds inside the dishwasher )

Leaks from under the unit:
Look for whiting or calcium stain on the motor and pump assembly = motor and pump assembly seal leak...access panel removal help
Hose for upper spray arm split
Fill hose split or fill hose spout air inlet is calcium covered
Drain hose is split
Rusted liner...metal liners only
Fill valve leaking or allowing water to fill all the time
Heating element ends....where they come out through the dishwasher liner
Float or float gasket

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.

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.

Dishwasher leaks during rinse cycle


it sounds like you need to adjust the door latch so that the top of the door will close tighter. when in the rinse cycle try pushing door at top to see if leak stops. if that doesn't let you know something then you got me. you have changed all that i can think of. Good luck
