SOURCE: The door seal is torn.
Pay the repair guy, even if it didn't include the part (seal) its cheap at $200. I replaced my door seal, I think the part cost me $36. In order to do the job correctly you need to remove the top, take off the front, remove the counter weight (to get room to work and not bust your knuckles). If you have an older machine the replacement seal is not a direct match. My seal won't allow the door to close completely and i have to lean on it to allow it to lock on start. I have had the seal in for about 4 months and am noticing the door closes better and I only have to lean on it a couple of times.
I replaced my seal because of the mildew problem caused by poor drain hole design. How does your seal get torn?

Replacing the door seal is not an easy task. You will need to get 2 special tools from LG to make it as easy as possible. The spring loaded clamps are very hard to put on because the springs are so strong. Once you get the special tools, remove the front clamp off the door seal. Pull the seal off the lip to gain access to inner seal clamp. Remove the inner clamp and pull off the rubber door seal. Just reverse the procedure when reinstalling the new seal.

you must remove the large front panel. if you can manage that the rest will become clear to you. dont forget to unscrew the door lock before befor removing the front panel. you will find three screws at the bottom of the front panel under the kick panel, remove them and the front panel will come off.
