Question about Washing Machines
About 2 out of ten loads creats a big puddle of water on the floor. I have examined drain lines. There is no leak or overflow from the tube. Also all pluming connections are tight . I cant seem to find where the water is coming from to begin reparing.
I've had trouble with my LG WM016CW front load washer leaking from the start. After many service calls, a Sears tech finally figured out that the water was running out the air vent on the back of the washer(leaks out even when no soap is added, so it's not a soap issue). The Sears tech called LG and it turns out that there should be mushroom valve(not on the original parts list) installed between the tub and air vent hose to prevent water from leaking through the air vent. That seems logical, so why wasn't the valve installed to begin with? LG is obviously aware of the problem, so why haven't they had the courtesy to inform their authorized techs? No, instead they wait for some poor tech to call them, then give out a part number that has proven to be dfficult or maybe even impossible to get(been 2 weeks and still no part). I believe LG is trying to hide the fact that the valve was left out of the original washer design and they do not want to go to the expense of correcting their mistake. Wish I could just return the washer, who wants one that leaks?
