How to install the rubber gasket on the door

My LG is only 2 years old and I noticed a small puddle of water on the front. It leaks from the front seal. since there are no authorized LG service people in middle GA, LG was "kind" enough to sell me the gasket.

It now appears that you must have some special tool to reinstall this gasket. It is held in place by 2 steel spring banks that fit in a front and back groove.

Any suggestions

Water leaks out of the bottom area of the door


There is a ring that holds the door gasket in place on the outside of the front panel and another ring inside the drum (the ring has a spring on it that allows it to be stretched.

There are 2 tools that LG has that make the ring clamp easy to install/remove, but you can also use 2 pair or needle nose pliers (one to hold the ring at the spring and another to stretch the ring). Just be careful not to damage the gasket.

Also, when ordering the new door gasket, make sure you have your serial number handy. There are 2 versions of the door gasket (depending on the serial number).

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

LG Tromm WM0642HW washer leaking water!


I have the same problem - just a small amount of water leaking out from under the machine. I removed the top cover and found one of the water lines rubs on the vent tube and has wore completely through. Should be an easy fix, as the line runs from the #2 spigot on the water inlet to the detergent box - both connections are right on top.

Water Leaking from pre-wash and main wash cold water solenoid


We had the small leak problem. It was a cut in the bellows at the door. Lower side. We could see it if we just spread the gasket just inside the door.

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.

Water leaking


Leaking pump or drain connexion most likely you will have to get under to check it out. Put a several sheet to news paper under the machine and pull it out as it stands to see where the water is coming from front/back/sides Do a wash and repeat. But you will need the service of an engineer I guess unless you are good with a wrench.

Leaking dishwasher


Are you washing cereal bowls or mixing bowls on the bottom rack? If so, are you placing them in front? Sudden leaks that form huge puddles can often be attributed to improper loading of the dishwasher. Most dishwashers don't have a seal across the tub front. The door closes over it and does a pretty good job of deflecting water back inside the wash cavity. However, if you place bowls in the front on the bottom rack rack they can divert the water right over the tub lip and onto the floor. This is usually the culprit that causes most leaks in dishwashers. Now, if you don't think you have a loading problem, remove the kick panel on the bottom of the dishwasher and check the drain line and pump housing for leaks. Check the door gasket for tears or cracks. Lastly, feel inside the bottom of the door with your hand. You should be able to feel the door insulation. If it is wet, then the problem could be a leak around your soap or rinse-aid dispenser. Depending on the model, some dispensers are mounted to the door with a gasket behind it. Sometimes this gasket can form leaks. I hope this helps.
