Where is it leaking from? The front or the back? If it is from the front replace the door gasket. If it is leaking from the back you will need to remove the back panel and get into the drain line and make sure that the drain line from the pump to to outside drain line is ok and not broke or loose

My LG WM2650HWA front load washing machine is 13 months old. A few weeks ago I noticed water at the end of the cycle in the front of the machine. Upon further inspection I noticed soapy, water at the

It's very common for the sump hose to have a hole in it causing it to leak. The quickest way check is to tip the washer back and examine the sump hose by stretching it, as you stretch the hose you should find your leak. You'll also want to check the door gasket for cuts and the drain pump assembly for leaks. Let me know what you find.

It started leaking when filling with water...why?

I've had to replace the internal hose three times where the water connections are. It is a "Y" hose, that is not sturdy, and a defective design. I've had this washer for three years, and this keeps happening. If you look carfuilly, you'll find a hole at the "Y" junction.

Water leaks on the floor,under washer. cleaned filter,but no help.

Hello there:
There are several hoses that run under the washing machine that go to different pumps that could be getting loose from the machine operation over time
so and alos hoses are subject to failure due to wear and tear
So what you are going to have to do is to remove the front lower panel and use a flashlite and look to see where the leak is coming from
and then once yo have found where the leak is coming from you may be able to tighten the hose clamp if it is that is leaking and hopefully not he hose itself. and if it is the hose it'self that is leaking have to replace the hose ok
Hope this is very helpful for you

Water leaking when when washer is running a large or super load

the leak could be coming from anywhere in the washer it just leaks out from the lowest point of the washer i would suggest placing a putty knife under the top on the right and left side and pushing the tabs in to pop off the front panel to see where the leak is coming from

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 back.
