Question about LG WM3470HWA Front Load Washer WM3470HWA
Yesterday I cleaned out my lint trap on the bottom left corner of my machine and when I put the trap back in and turned it it felt different. Like there was no tension....we read about it and thought maybe it was the circulation pump...replaced it still gushing water. Is there a gasket in the lint trap that can go bad? Or do you have any suggestions on what else it could be? Thanks for you help!!!

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)

The problem is likely due to lint build up in the condensing unit. I found a solution here:
I also had a softball size ball of wet, packed lint in the condensing unit. I found that the unit can be cleaned without tools or dis-assembly by:

SOURCE: LG WM3677HW Pump Problem
No need to go in through the top to remove the pump on a WM3677... i've removed mine seems-like a dozen times already, and will soon replace it.
Be sure all the water is out of the washer before starting.
We have a training problem with not cleaning the lint trap, and the pump gets jammed. The design is bad; it traps some REALLY nasty gunk underneath the impeller (in the cavity).
Anyhow, when facing the machine, put a low step-stool to the right of the washer and (carefully!) tip it over onto it's side, resting on the stool. Pad the stool with a towel, if you're careful.
The pump is in the bottom of the machine, towards the front/face on the now-higher side. That's the left, as facing the machine.
First, remove the lint-trap, and the plug in the drain line (small black hose). Remove the access-panel plastic piece, it is held in by one small phillips screw.
Note the 4 wires attached to the pump. Remove them, they are spade-connectors. Note the color/position if you like, but it's not really important.
Reach behind the pump and pull off the small hose. This is the sprayer, and it does not have a clamp on it.
Use large channel-lock pliers to compress/slide back the clamp on the large rubber hose that goes from the drum to the pump. This is the supply/suction side. Remove the hose, but be sure not to dislodge it from the bottom of the drum.
The ribbed hose also has a compression clamp. This is the drain hose.
Remove two of the three phillips screws that hold the pump in, they are under the plastic panel we removed a minute ago, on the front of the machine.
Holding the pump with one hand, remove the last screw. The pump is free.
Assembly is the reverse, and don't forget to put ALL the hoses back!
