MORE THAN LIKELY IT IS YOUR WATER PUMP. WHICH CAN BE BOUGHT FOR 25.00 TO 45.00 DOLLARS. LAY YOUR MACHINE CAREFULLY ON ITS BACK. UNDERNEATH YOUR MACHINE YOU WILL SEE THE PUMP. THERE ARE TO HOSES GOING TO THE PUMP HELD ON BY CLAMPS. REMOVE THE CLAMPS THEN PULL OFF THE HOSES. AFTER HOSES ARE OFF YOU WILL FIND TO CLAMPS (BRACKETS) THAT ARE HOLDING ON THE WATER PUMP, REMOVE THEM AND WATER PUMP WILL SLIDE RIGHT OFF. PUT ON NEW PUMP AND PUT ON EVERYTHING YOU TOOK OFF PREVIOUSLY. NOTE: WHILE MACHINE IS ON ITS BACK YOU SHOULD CHECK HOSES AND PLASTIC TUB FOR ANY CRACKS OR HOLES IN THEM. IF NONE ARE FOUND CHANGE YOUR PUMP.

    JUST THOUGHT OF SOMETHING ELSE. I WOULD LIKE YOU TO CHECK AND MAKE SURE THAT YOUR HOSES ARE NOT LEAKING IN THE BACK OF MACHINE BUT MAKING IT APPEAR TO BE FROM THE BOTTOM. ALSO INSIDE YOUR TUB WATCH THE WATER AS IT GOES INTO THE MACHINE DOES IT LOOK LIKE IT IS ALL GOING INTO TUB PROPERLY OR DOES IT LOOK LIKE SOME COULD BR SPILLING OUT THE BACK? IF YOUR TUB IS LEANING TO FAR FORWARD IT COULD BE BECAUSE YOUR MACHINE IS NOT BALANCED PROPERLY OR THERE IS A SPRING THAT CAME OFF ON THE BOTTOM.

The washer leaks water as it's filling up?


This is a good question; what brand of washer machine do you have?

Is it front or top load?

Leaks water from the front door, from where you load the soap or from the back or bottom?

If it is from the front door it could be the gasket, if it is from where you load the soap it's the same soap clogging the fill hose, if it is from the back it could be the hoses or the fill valve, if it is a top load and you see the water liking from the side or bottom, then, if it is from the side the fill hose is your problem if it is from the bottom then it could be the seal from the drum or just a leaking pump.

Please be more specific

Water leaks (spewing) from sides of bottom of machine when it's filling up


The normal cause of leaking while it is filling is a leaking Inlet hose. Try pulling the washing machine away from the wall and watch the hoses as the machine fills. If it is leaking you can see which hose is leaking. You may either need new tighner clips or to replace the hoses depending on how bad they are leaking. Another possibility is the water pump inside the washing machine could be broken and spewing out water.

LG drains and fills at same time.


This is caused by the " the flood" circuit at the bottom of the dishwasher that detects some water leak. Once this circuit detects any water on the bottom of the washer, it immediately switches the pump out circuit on. It consists of a polystyrene float coupled to a micro switch. You need to dry the bottom and then check for leaks (hose or hose clamp).

Water leaking into bottom of refrigerator section


Make sure you dry everything in the freezer when you have the door open and remove ice. It won't be a leak it will simply be the warm air inside the freezer that has turned into condensation. Double check the seal around the door to see if it curled up as that could be letting warm in and cold out giving same results.

Water leak


it sounds like the bleach fill line. at the top of the washer is a bleach fill cup, it might attach to it. this black bleach fill line attaches to the bleach fill cup to the bottom of the tub.
