I have the LG Tromm direct drive system and it is leaking from the front door. Can anyone help. Thanks Doris


The first thing that springs to mind is that the large rubber seal or gasket around where the door closes may be perished or damaged in some way. Obviously the door is not making a perfect seal when it's closed. If all appears to be normal, check that there is no visible gap when the door is closed, if it is even slightly out of alignment it would be enough to cause a leak.

If there is no apparent problem, you could try these links and query it with the manufacturer, the appliancejumk one explains how to replace the gasket if this proves to be the problem. I hope this helps.

Front loader washer leaks from bottom center of door osmetimes


Check inside the door on the bellows gasket to make sure the inlet area (normally at the 10 o'clock position) is properly positioned around the water inlet, sometimes these work themselves off the inlet nozzle and can casue a leak when the washer is filling up.

Also, carefully run your hand around the bellows gasket to see if you can find any small holes that cold be letting water leak out. You'll need a flashlight to make this easier. It is hardly ever the hinges that causes a leak since the hinges are mounted outside of the door seal gasket (bellows gasket) and aren't ever exposed to the water.

Leak at the door


If you are still having this problem, try moving the spring on the tub gasket clamp (right at the bottom of the door opening) about 90 degrees to the left (to right by the hinge). Let me know if this solves your problem. Thanks.

LG WM1812CW washer smell


This is a problem with LG design. There are 2 problem areas that I have seen. One is that bottom on the rubber gasket and the other is in the filter drain pipe.

Beside throwing out the machine I believe you need to remove the rubber gasket and clean the mold from it, and also clean the filter drain pipe at the bottom.

I am not expert so I will let you know how this goes as I am trying it tonight. I just need to figure out to how to remove the rubber gasket .. as I see there is actually mold in there.

Washer is leaking


Check the rubber bellow (gasket) around the door. This is the symptom of a door gasket that it starting to leak. Pull the rubber folds back and check the area where the gasket attaches to the wash tub. You may have a crack or tear. If the gasket is worn please replay back to this post and I can give you advice on how to replace it and where to get a replacement gasket.
