If you cannot get to it by just reaching between the rubber rim.
The official way is to take off the top and bottom access panels , 3 screws on each in top rear and on the bottom front, then remove the front control switch panel.
then you can remove the front of the machine.

Lg tromm washer leaking from front door


We have the same problem with our LG washer. Don't think the door can be adjusted but I'm not for sure. I think the gasket is wore out but haven't checked on fixing the problem yet because it barely leaks.

Can't open the door


Have you tried to open it when turned off at power. Wait 5 secs after turning off door release should open. If this does not work, put on a wash cycle, start machine then turn off the cycle and switch machine off. Door should open. Failing this I would say door lock mechanism is faulty.

Hi..am using frontload lg washer since past 2yrs...the door seems to get jammed..am able to open the door only if i try harder..reason?


replace the door lock assembly and this would solve your door issue as these age the inner clip on the door assembly starts to deteriorate with use of opening and closeing the door it is mainly made up of small plastic pieces if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future thanks Rick

Lg washing machine wm-1460fhd door locked wont open


We have a WM-1480FHD, with the door stuck shut. It appears the door release mechanism in the actual door has broken, so when you pull the lver part, the catch is not released. You need to get a very flat knife,insert between the door and the front of the machine, right in the middle behind the release handle and push the hook towards the right side of the machine.Once open, you can check the release mechanism in the actual door. Ours is broken, so need to sort out how to repair/replace it next!

Try first to unplug the power cable and see if it allow you to open the door. In case it will not help, you have to raise the top of the washer to get to the switch and release it manually (The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame). Good luck
