Question about Washing Machines
I have an 8 year old LG 1814CW that is leaking water from somewhere in the front of the drum. From the back while it is running I can hear and see water dripping from the front of the drum onto the floor in the front of the machine. The drain is cleaned, it is not coming from any drain lines that I can see. I appears to be coming from the door seal or drains connected to that. It gushes water whenever the drum stops spinning and water is sitting in that seal. Then once it is spinning again it stops. I replaced the door seal about 2 years ago and it is correctly sealing the door to the outside. Any ideas of what to look for before I throw the thing to the curb. (It has lots of other problems - Error codes etc. but I could at least deal with them to keep it going)

Hi, I don't know how to fix your problem, Lia, unfortunately, BUT wanted to say "Thank You!!" for mentioning that you can get the washer to run through the cycle by rotating the drum and switching to cold water wash! We'd tried unplugging, leaving it unplugged overnight even, but the code/beeping started immediately after plugging back in. I'm kind of longing for an old-school washer right now, thinking of all the things that can go wrong with the newer digital-age computerized ones :-) If you see this, please share what you did to solve your washer problem! Hoping it's not too expensive to fix...or I should say to GET it fixed :-\

have you tried unplugging unit for a couple of minutes to reset? if so it is possible the motor control got wet and this could be the culprit. there are also some wiring around the front of unit are we positive nothing got disconnected... let me know

To get inside the machine for a look, you have to take the back panel off,
1. Pull the plug
2. Turn off and then Disconnect the HOT and COLD water hoses at the machine
3. Remove bottom, side and all but 2 top corner screws from the back panel (all around the outer edges only) then supporting the panel, remove one corner screw, let the panel down on that side, then remove the other.
5. Grab a light, look inside.
My guess is that the spinning, wobbling drum worre a hose thru.
Hint: Put all the back panel screws in loose, all the way around... then tighten them
