Question about LG Washing Machines
The LG 3-step 7.2kg WF-T7050TP Top-Loader washing machine is about 2 years old. After a wash there is many black rubber flakes in the machine and on the clothes. Can I change a standard rubber seal or something like that?
I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,

Replacing the door seal is not an easy task. You will need to get 2 special tools from LG to make it as easy as possible. The spring loaded clamps are very hard to put on because the springs are so strong. Once you get the special tools, remove the front clamp off the door seal. Pull the seal off the lip to gain access to inner seal clamp. Remove the inner clamp and pull off the rubber door seal. Just reverse the procedure when reinstalling the new seal.

Not a hard task if you coat rims with liquid detergent before trying to install new seal.
Using thumb go slowly around rim working seal all the way back.
Replacing main spring can be done by working bottom to top and then hold left side of spring in place while you pull right side in with long nose pliers.A couple of minutes difficult work and your 90% done.
Care is required so as not to puncture seal,
Main point is to ensure seal is fully seated before applying spring.
Having machine laid on its back makes the job so much easier.
This job took an hour and 30 minutes, the hour spent checking the internet first.

You probably have the drain hose too far down the standpipe and it is siphoning out. Check that first. If that doesn't work, look up Catriver, sounds like that cat knows his stuff. Tenbears.
