Hi

Looking at top cover from rear of the washer---there are two white plastic tabs with 4 Phillips screws. Remove only the bottom 2 screws--one from each side--and leave the remaining top screws attached.
Grasp the top cover of the washer at one corner with both hands and squeeze towards the rear--some are fairly tight but it will slide rearward. Wipe all dust from the top for a better grip. Wearing rubber coated gloves helps too. After the top moves back about two or three inches--lift up to remove.
The door gasket can be inspected from the front with a good flashlight. I run my fingers full circle to feel for holes or tears.
The area of the leak is near the drain motor/pump assembly. Make sure that the pump strainer is tightly closed---but not overly tight---it has an o-ring seal. On a few older LG washers---the drain hose may have a perforation from vibration. This not very common but I will come across this one or twice a year.
After removing the top cover---look for any obvious origin of the leak during a test cycle. If it's possible--remove the back service panel and look toward the drain pump area for water leakage. Use care not to touch the spinning motor unit--try to observe from a distance with a bright light.
This type of small leak is due to incorrect type of detergent or too much of the correct/HE detergent. This can cause suds to ooze out of the rear tub air vent. Later the suds revert back to full liquid and the water can be seen at the front of the washer if the floor has a slight slope.

Correct use is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Washload

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

I have taken apart my drain pump but now i can't remember where the wires go on a lg front load washer


There are two connectors that attach to your drain pump, a black and a brown. They attach to the metal contact on the pump, it doesn't matter which one goes where, they are interchangeable.

When you put the front panel on, there is a door switch connector you need to attach before you put the screws back to hold it in place. After, the connectors on as you attach the top display portion of the washer. They are color coded, put the back into where the connector match with the size and colors on the main board.

Afterward, you can put everything back together and test the washer. Everything should light up and turn back on as normal before. Do not forget to put the particle filter trap back into the pump after everything is together on the bottom left corner of the washer or else it will leak lots of water when you do a wash.

I've got a leak in my LG WM2277HW coming from the valve inlet (I believe part 5221ER1003A. Anyone else experience this issue? Seems like I can simple replace the part? Thanks!


Yes, I've had this and had to replace the valve assembly, fairly easily fixed once you get the part, and after you discover that the top of the Washer comes off by unscrewing and removing the screws and hinges at the rear top of the Washer and then sliding the top back, away from the front (I had to jar it fairly hard). I hope this helps.

Just moved. New washer leaks water and appears tub is off center


CHECK THE BALANCE SPRING LOCATED (INSIDE LEFT REAR OF MACHINE). IF SPRING IS OFF IT CAN CAUSE THE TUB TO TILT TOWARD THE FRONT AND THE TUB FILL HOOD WILL NOT BE OVER THE TUB DURING FILLING OR THE TUB WILL BE ERATIC DURING THE SPIN WHEN RINSE WATER IS SPAYING IN CAUSE ING THE WATER TO MISS THE TUB AND SPRAY OUTSIDE. THIS IS COMMON IF THE UNIT HAS BEEN MOVED OR PLACED ON IT'S SIDE OR CARRIED AT EXTREME ANGLE.
