Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
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!!!
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.

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.
