SOURCE: LG WM1814CW - Water/soap Leaking Under Washing Machine onto Floor

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 WM2487 front load washer spews suds out of port on rear.

You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.

The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

SOURCE: my lg washing machine leaks

Actually, it's most likely not a clog, I've seen this rare problem before, but it sounds like your machine could be missing what LG calls a "mushroom valve". This is just a piece of plastic with a mushroom shaped top, and it slips down in the top of the machine, and it suppose to allow air to pass through, but block any water from coming through. There is a large hose called a bellow that surrounds this, and connects to the tub with a screw style clamp, and then connects the same way to the back of the cabinet.

This isn't to hard to check, if you have a Phillips screwdriver handy. You can remove the top of the washing machine with two screws, and the top cover slides backward, and then you pull it up to pop it off.

Once you have the top of the cover off, you can see the large black hose (bellow) and you'll notice the screw clamp in place, you can easily loosen the clamp up, and pop one end of the bellow off, that attaches to the tub, and see if you have the mushroom valve in place.

LG WM0642H Front Load will not fill with water


Turn off your water supply, disconnect the hoses from the washer itself, where the hoses connect is two non removable plastic screens. They are most likely clogged. What i usually do is put a mop bucket on the floor below the ports and then slowly turn on the cold water and use it to wash the debris out. After you do that hook everything back up and she should work fine.

Tip

How to fix a Washing Machine if it is leaking


Leaking water from a washing machine usually comes from hoses or connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn’t drain water from a backed-up standpipe. To prevent potential flood damage, which can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, be sure to install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff valves, as shown below. With these, you can easily turn off the levers for both hot and cold water between wash days. 1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten couplings or hose clamps if needed, or replace the hoses altogether. Be sure to turn the water off before removing the hoses, and drain them into a bucket after disconnecting them.
2) Determine whether the machine is oversudsing, which can cause it to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring in 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1 quart water. Then switch to either less detergent or a low-sudsing variety.
3) The machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing that must be replaced; in this case, call an appliance repairperson.

Water Leaking From Calypso, Won't Drain Completely


the bag type device is an overflow and should never have "water"in it, but it will get suds if you are using the wrong type of soap.
you need to use "HE" soap as it is a non-sudsing soap and thats why you are getting suds leaking from your unit.
just run the rinse and spin cycle until the suds are gone. then use the right type of soap and it will work properly with no leaks.

LG washer leaking problem


You may be using too much detergent.  Use only 2 tablespoons of detergent in your wash.  Using too much will oversud the machine causing the suds to go out the back vent and on to the floor giving the sense of a leak.  
On the dispenser, make sure that the containers are clean and free of any debris.

LG WM2455HW washer problem


Some machines monitor the power required to operate the drive motor and excessive power requirements can lead to this type of error. Try using a light load so the motor isn't strained.

Suds leaking from back of washer near top


Suds are not supposed to leak from the top; means you are not using the right detergent. Use front loading powders. You can open up the top during next wash to locate where the leak is coming from (after changing powder). I understand suds appear in the window during spin....but leak? Caution when machine works with top open!

rate if helped pl........
