Remove the cabinet to access the water pump. It is attached to the motor front/center.
It will be leaking.
No repair, only replacement will stop the leak.
Remove 2 screws on the right and left sides of the control console. The console is hinged. Fold it to the rear of the machine. Unplug the lid switch connector.
Remove 2 clips holding the back panel to the cabinet base.
Remove the cabinet. Motor and pump are at the bottom center.

Hi, With the washer empty, unplug the washer and tip it back against the wall and look for the pump located inside the front wall. You will be able to if water has been dripping from the pump. Please let me know and I can assist you with part # and how to change it.

Thanks

LG Front Load moves and vibrates violently during spin cycle?


This is a mis-direction. I was informed that I needed to reinforce my floor to reduce the vibration . The problem persisted. Then it turned into a loud roaring when the washer went into spin cycle. I have disassembled the machine to find out that the root of the problem was caused by a leak occuring where the inner tub's spline shaft goes through the bearing assembly in the back. the leak degraded the bearings to the point that caused the vibration to get worse and thus started a cycle of increasing distruction to the bearings untill the leak made its way onto and inside the electrical connectors for the stator. This shorted out the motherboard and totally distroys the machine to the point where the parts are more expensive to fix it then the machine is worth. To repair it you need to get the service manual to find out how to take it apart. After getting the inner and outter tub removed from the machine you need to totally dissemble the tubs so the rear outter tub that holds the bearings can be replaced. To troubleshoot if you have the same problem I had take the back plate off the washer and inspect the area at the bottom of the rotor. If you see any rust or water discoloration trails then start taking the machine apart before the motor shorts out the motherboard and kills the machine.

Small puddle of water underneath washer when wash cycle was completed.


That could be 1 of a couple things.

1) During the agitate cycle... some water could've made it out of tub.

2) Possible Tub Crack (or overflow line)

3) Check your inlet lines

I would run it again watching it very carefully to determine if any of these are the problem.

Towel mildew smell is being transferred from the washer. The washer must be cleaned first. The problem is not "brand specific" all clothes washers have mold growth to a certain degree. Bleach or vinegar will kill the mold inside your washer but won't remove it or the residue it grows on thereby making the situation worse because it leaves a "base" for more detergent to collect on and more mold will grow.

Washing machine mold / mildew odor is caused by:
#1 cause is overuse of detergents. Detergent companies are notorious for instructing to use too much detergent. Especially with soft water or when using liquid detergent no more than 1 tbsp of any detergent should be used.
#2 most common cause is using fabric softener because it's dispensed in the rinse cycle and will coat the inside of the outer tub with residue that is a food source for mold to grow.
#3 using only cold water for washing is fine but makes preventative maintenance very important. A weekly hot soak will dissolve odor-causing residue from inside your washer.
#4 not using the washer. If the clothes washer isn't used very often maintenance is especially important. If leaving for a vacation it's a good idea to clean your washer. Do a search to "remove washer odor" to read just how big the problem is. There are all natural washer cleaners that will also remove mildew odor from towels and clothing after the washer has been cleaned.

Hello, you may have a small drip from the pump or a small drip from the hose that goes from the pump to the rear of the cabinet. To make sure you will have to run the unit with the cabinet removed. A local service tech can remove the cabinet quicklyand isolate the leak.

Leaking dishwasher


Sorry about the delay in time in getting back to your problem if not already resolved heres what you can try. Remove the bottom panel and run through a load, to see exactly where leak is coming from, most common place for leak is through the heater hold down brass nuts. They crack and need to be replaced

I have a kenmore washer that is leaking bad underneath in the front making puddles of water. Im constantly keeping towels down everytime I wash a load. Could you please tell me what might be wrong? Thank...


Check the front door boot first. Make sure that there are no tears in it.

Remove the back of the washer, start a fill cycle and observe outer tub sections and hoses for leaks. This is a good place to start.

Leaking dishwasher


Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.
