    Our front loader also leaks during the spin cycle. After a load of laundry there is always a puddle of water on the right front side of the dryer. We double checked to make sure the washer is level and it is. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have the same problem with the LG Tromm Steam Washer. Only been using the washer for 3 months; washer smells musky, and it is leaking out of the right corner. When the washer stops, i have water dripping from the top of the gasket at the entrance to the drum. if i dont pull the laundry out as soon as it stops, i have to run another spin cycle to get the water out. I have had the repairman out twice and he can not find the leak. When i am done with my laundry I shut the water supply off and drain the water out of the machine. For the money we paid for the greatest and latest, they need to fix the problem. If you do a seach at consumer affairs, you will see all the problems associated with this washer. Next time I purchase a washer I will do more research. Sorry I can't help with your solution but if you find the answer please post. Sheila

Oops, our fault..... We had the repair man come out and take a look at the washer due to all the water in the right front after each load. Tunrs out it was just a hose on the back that wasn't connected tight. How embarrasing. The repair man was only here for max 5 mins. We checked and double checked all the hoses to make sure it wasnt something we did. Turns out it was us all along. Hopefully your problem is as simple as this. Our washer is working great! Good luck

Water leaking on fast spin


hi Eamon.
this is what i found from the internet.
Washing machine leaks on spin Last updated on February 6th, 2017
Sometimes a washing machine leaks on spin, but not before. If this is the case, either it's going into spin with too much water inside, or something may only be leaking under the pressure and tub movement caused by spinning.
If you can see water running out of the soap drawer during spin it's probably gone into spin without pumping the water away properly. If it wasn't pumping water out at all it would not go into spin, but a partial obstruction can reduce the flow enough to allow a spin with the water unable to escape fast enough. This causes water to be forced up into the drawer or out of the steam vent at the back. If you suspect this check the last section of this article - Washer leaks from drawer
If water is coming from underneath when it spins then it's more likely to be caused by something leaking only under pressure. Check the door seal all around inside for slits and small holes, especially higher up, which may only open up and let water out when the washer is bouncing around on spin.
Other possible causes are hoses inside the machine which have small holes which open up during spin or which leak where they connect to the tub under spin conditions. These type of leaks often leave tell-tale rust or dry detergent marks. After that there could be a crack or small hole high up in the plastic outer tub which only gets exposed to water when it's forced around the tub during spin.
You are looking for something that is moving and allowing water out when the tub bounces around under load, or something high letting water out when it gets thrashed around the top half of the machine on spin. If you can't see anything obvious get a washing machine engineer
