Black rubber flakes in LG Top-loader

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.
Good luck
Kevin

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.

This is probably the seal around the door and drum. Professional work is required.

Hi mine does exactly the same! I have to call in my washing machine technician more often (he told me this would happen with a top loader as opposed to a front loader, boy was he right!!) and he cleans out the drum. Mostly it is the fabric softener which is too thick. I water mine down to 50/50 and I do another spin after my final wash. I also empty the filter of water at the side/bottom of the machine. This annoying problem is caused by the way the drum turns on a top loader as opposed to the front loader. My top loader cannot heat water automatically either like a front loader, and I think this also adds to the problem as hot/boiling water would dissolve all that soap/fabric softener. Hope this helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but this forum does not supply parts, part numbers, costs or other details direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
Spares Suppliers
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer spares' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can order. Alternately you could try telephone directories for spares suppliers but I would think the former would be more successful.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

My lg Washing Machine WF-T853A is putting black rubbery chunks and flakes through every wash.. This has been happening for about 12 mths and is getting worse to the point where half the lint bags are full...


sorry to ask you this but are you sure the flakes are rubber? usually the black flakes are lint from the clothes. to help combat this problem try this.1- buy 2 pkts of bicarb of soda or baking soda, 2- select high water fill. 3- select hot water fill.4- pour soda into an empty machine. 5- shut the lid and push the start button. 6- let it fill and wash, let it wash for about 5 to 10 min"s , do not let the water drain.7- turn machine off after letting it wash for 5 to 10 min"s , and leave the water sit in the bowl overnight . 8- in the morning start cycle again and let it go thru complete cycle. this should get rid of most of the lint. you might have to do this twice depending on how dirty the plastic tank is. please reply 4 more help and good luck.
