    The water is not leaking out the door, but at the bottom front of the machine. By the way, the model is the 1814 not the 1812. I put the wrong model in.

    I assume to check those items I need to get into the washer. Are there disassembly instructions available? I am fairly handy.

You can add shim the latch where the door will close tighter, that is what is recommended by LG. More here

    Add shims to the latch to make the door close tighter by removing the catch and adding washers between it and the door latch. This will make the door close tighter.

    Might be a leaking pump or tub to pump hose.Possibly the gasket.

My LG front loader leaks from under the front left corner and the repair men can't figure it out and stop the leak.


Have you cleaned the filter out recently? If not, it may need cleaning. Use a flat -end screwdriver in the top of the front plinth to remove from the machine.filter should unscrew (have some towel to soak up a little bit of water). Wash out and replace. Make sure you have tightened it right up when you put it back. If you have cleaned the filter, then check you have tightened it right up.

The Washing Cycle has halted with water in the cylinder and "F04" flashing on the micro monitor in the control panel. I have mislaid my manual and request advice please


This error indicates an obstruction in the water pump. Tip machine back so you can fit a bowl under the bottom right hand side. Flip back cover at bottom right to reveal pump filter access - unscrew (quite a bit of water comes out so have the bowl ready).

Bottom right on the front of your machine is a small door that flips down.
Open this and you'll find a drain tube.
Drain the water off into a dish.
Then remove the filter and clean it out.

Good luck.

Water will not drain completely/or at all from unit.machine cycles thru all stages, dishes seem clean but lots of water left in botton of washer.


The filter is probably blocked.


It is inside the base of the machine.


Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

AE error on lg washing machine


The AE error is indicative that there is a leak somewhere in the washer and it has triggered the flood protection device found at the bottom of the machine. What you should do is find out if there is indeed a leak. Try tilting it forward and find out if water will run out. If you can see water leaking from the water, locate the leak and fix it.

My clothes smell musty after they have been washed. I was told to replace the rubber gasket in our Kenmore front loader he4T by the sears repairman for quite an expense. How can I replace this gasket...


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

Water leaking through detergent tray of my Hotpoint WF860


It sounds like the washer is not draining properly.

Remove lower rear cover of washer, locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of tub.
remove plastic filter inside hose, and clean same.
Refit filter and hose, making sure it is on properly.
Be careful when you remove the hose, as there will be water in there.
As an extra precaution, remove soap draw,and thoroughly clean all parts, particularly,the conditioner parts
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
