Lg washing machine 1289 fhd


Washing machine has started to leak slightly - could this be due to high water pressure from water main i.e. 13 bar

Can you please tell me the range of water pressure over which this machine will work.

Regards

If the leak is from under the machine, i may be from a defect (or damage) of the rubber connection. To check, lay the machine on one of its sides and check the large black rubber piece for leak.  I fixed mine with a strong waterproff rubber cement.

Bosch washing machine leaks


what size is the line you are using for the gray water. what i mean is if you are trying ti use the same size hose as the original discharge
hose, the pressure to high. the hose original was about 1 inch diameter, the hose use to go up than the hose hook shape goes into the drain pipe thats 2-3 inches diameter for draining the water went into the sewer system, if your trying to use 1-1/2 hose, the diameter not enough air or room for all that water. i dont think the lenth the issue its the diameter and amount of pressure that being forced down small hose or pvc pipe.

Error code 13. Turned water on to machine and it leaked


E13 Condition Water leak in the tub or air leak in pressure-switch air hose Check/Repair The washer fills for too long without the water level pressure switch tripping to indicate that the washer is full. Check for a leak in the wash tub. If the tub is not leaking, check to see if the washer is overfilling. If it is, check the air hose and water-level pressure switch for problems.

My lg wm0742hga front load washer machine over fill of water causing to leak out from the door


even when overflowing it shouldnt leak from the door? less u have a bad door seal? the water problem may be due to a bad water inlet valve? have u notice water in the tub even when ur not using it? check with a multimeter the inlet valve and the water pressure switch? blow into the water pressure switch while it is in the wash mode filling with water and if it starts washing the diaphfram is good if not its faulty. u can also checl the water inlet valve the one with the hoses attached . by running either a hot or cold cycle only and turn off the hot then turn off the cold? see if it continues to over flow with each cycle? hot then cold- GOOD LUCKKKKK

My washing machine keeps filling with water until it starts to leak when you start the wash cycle.


must be some sediment in the water pressure tube going up to the control. I would locate it and blow out the sediment, re-secure the tube nice and tight and retry.
I have a old LG manual HERE

If water pressure is low will it damage the machine?


if you have low water pressure the only thing that will happen is it will take longer to fill, rinse, thus making the wash cycle longer, this is under normal circumstances you have not mentioned the machine type check owners manual if it does not state high pressure then all will be ok

Water leaking out slightly from detergent dispenser draw and is starting to rust down left hand front side of machine,checked all water supply and drain hoses but leak appears to be coming from high up...


Your water pressure may be a liitle too high for the machine to handle. Try turning the water valves for the hot and cold water down a bit to reduce the pressure and try it again.
