Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
door gasket damaged(torn)
Lint filter door not fully closed
It sounds like you might have a damaged outer bowl, broken by a foreign object(coin, wire,screw). Costly repair.

SOURCE: My GE front load washer
We believe a shirt sleeve was not fully in our GE GCVH6260 front loading washer. With the twisting and turning the shirt pulled our rubber door seal into the washer, stretching the seal. The rubber door seal is formally called a; "front door boot gasket". (image of washer type linked below)
We contacted our local GE store and picked up the replacement boot gasket (part# WH08X10036), which cost about $155 plus tax CDN.
Please Note; I did not remove the front face of the washer..
1. I cut away the old rubber ring as I did not have the "carny hands" needed to loosen the inner ring nut and bolt.
2. I then used a mini hack saw to cut the screw in half (careful not to cut anything else).
3. Once the old rings were removed, I filled the bath tub / laundry tub up with very hot water and submierged the new boot gasket into the water for five minutes.
4. Once heated, I quickly lined up the ring to the proper positioning and was able to put the ring on the washer with little effort.
5. As the ring cooled in place, I put the inner metal ring back into the appropriate groove. As I could not reach in an put a proper nut and bolt into place, I opted to use two thick zip ties to hold the ring in place, pulling it tighter with my pliers on the end and snipping the excess legging off after.
6. The outer ring was relatively easy to put on afterwards.
Special thanks to my pops, Warren McDonald for his great advise on heating the ring to put it in place!

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

First, clean off the bottom of the door glass where it contacts the gray tub gasket when the door closes. Any hair or other build up can result in leakage. Second, if that does not completely solve your leak, you can move the location of the spring which holds the tub gasket from the very bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position). Third: Sometimes, the reason you get a leak is due to the installation. If the washer was pushed into place by applying pressure in the center front of the washer, the outer front panel can be slightly deformed (inwerd) resulting in leakage from the door. If that is the case, sometimes you can remove the outer clamp and outer part of the gray seal and pull out on the front panel to correct the situation if it is not too severe, rather than replacing the entire front panel.

Check the rubber boot just inside the door. You have to push the drum back slightly and rub your fingers around the entire boot. I had a similar problem and a key had fallen out of a pocket and cut into that boot. The leak would run out of the damaged boot then come out the bottom onto the floor. I purchased a new boot and it took me about 30 min to install it. The problem was solved. If the rubber boot is fine then the over soap thing is probably your problem.

Check the button trap. Little door at front bottom right corner. There is a big screw in plug that has to be closed very tightly. Also check the plug gasket is clean.
