Question about LG WT4801CW 3.7 cu. ft. top load washer

Open Question

My lg washer WT4801CW is leaking at back left side (when you are facing it)

We've had it for 1 year 4 months. My husband thought the leak was out the air vents, but it looks like it could be coming from underneath back left side.

SOURCE: LG WD-8016C Front Load Washer leaks from the bottom

Crawls, usually all leaks are visible. Im surprised the repairman did not actually get to the source of it. Your drain pump sits on the bottom and it possibly could be the filter cap, hoses to the pump or pump itself. Another area to check is the despensor. There are a number of hoses to this which could be leaking. The bellow itself could have a cut in it somewhere along the bottom. I would call the repairman back and have him at least get to the source of the leak...Catriver..post back.

Here is the answer !!! My LG front loader has leaked once a year for the past 4 years. The rubber bellows (a part underneath the washer) cracks and causes the leak. DO NOT LET THEM TELL YOU THAT YOU ARE USING TOO MUCH DETERGENT ... THAT JUST AN EXCUSE !!! The part costs around $12. Here's the link ...

SOURCE: lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

Lg top load washer 1 year old, vibrates violently during spin. Checked an adjusted level, no help.


they have springs and shock absorbers in the machine to help stabilize the load when spinning. since the washer is so new, i would guess one or the other has just come loose. take top off and check. online videos will show you how

LG wt4801cw stopped working with 30 minutes left . I unplugged it and now it won't poer on. Do you think it is the control board?


Lid won't open! Mine too! Wet clothes, waiting for parts, if you remove the sliver back cover, about 16'X16's four Philips screws, look up on the right side of the machine behind the drum, way up there's a solenoid. Mine had a red string! I pulled on it and got my wife to try the lid, it opened! LG says you cannot open it, but that's not true. They just don't want you looking inside the junk machines they sell! Good luck!

Ge front loader leaks when filling


Leaks are probably going to come from one of 4 places:
  1. Door gasket: water should run down the face of the washer from the lowest point of the door.
  2. Water connectors: left rear of machine
  3. Soap drawer: water running down front of machine from the upper left-hand side
  4. Discharge pump and hoses: Right side.
Rear right would probably indicate a discharge hose leak. Front right would most likely be the discharge pump and/or connectors to it. Here's a diagram:

If you don't see any of the easily visible leaks (door, soap dispenser, connectors), try to
pop off the front access panel by removing the 3 bottom screws. Once removed try to determine where the leak is originating from...then we can troubleshoot more. If you find this advice helpful, please don't forget to rate me -- trying to get my Guru level so I can offer premium support

LG Tromm WM0642HW washer leaking water!


I have the same problem - just a small amount of water leaking out from under the machine. I removed the top cover and found one of the water lines rubs on the vent tube and has wore completely through. Should be an easy fix, as the line runs from the #2 spigot on the water inlet to the detergent box - both connections are right on top.
