LG 1814CW washing machine leaking water

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)

SOURCE: LG Tromm WD 12270 RD washer and dryer

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 :-\

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool duet. I had washed 8 towels 2

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.
4.Remove panel
5. Grab a light, look inside.

My guess is that the spinning, wobbling drum worre a hose thru.

Good Luck!
Hint: Put all the back panel screws in loose, all the way around... then tighten them

I have a LG front load washing machine, about 6 years old which leaks at the front bottom left side. I had General Appliance Inc. fix it. They said it was the pump system. $ 470 later I still have...


its not the pump, if it was you would have lots of water usually, a small leak could be a hose or hose clamp that needs adjusting check that first

I have a LG washing machine Model # WM2688H*M it has a slight leak that I traced to a small black hose. The hose is in the back of the machine that goes from the bottom of the drum to the top somewhere...


It's not likely the hose is leaking, but rather water is leaking from somewhere else and is running down the outside of that hose. Remove the washer top by taking out the two phillips head screws from the bottom of the plastic clips on the back side of the washer's top. Now, stand in front of the machine and use the palms of you hands to sharply push the top cover back about 2 inches, then lift the cover off. Look for the water leak. The most likely suspect is a water inlet valve.

Where is the drain filter and the spin rinse sensor located on


Have not heard of a part called a "spin rinse sensor". Drain filter is located behind the small access door at the bottom left on front of the machine. Use small hose there to drain remaining water out of pump and hoses, then unscrew the big thing on the right side (end of the filter).

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 ...

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........
