Question about LG WM-2277HW Front Load Washer
My washer leaks out the back and on to the floor. I have already cleaned the filter locate at the front of the unit. Is there a filter located at the back of the machine. My wife spoke to a technician at LG and they said there was. If there is one I do not no where it is.
Leaks from the bottom of the machine are usually related to a sump issue.
You will have to remove the rear panel from your machine to see leak happening. Do not reach into the back of the machine while it is powered if possible. Be extremely careful.
The rear panel is held on by 4 screws, with these removed the panel will pull away from the back of the machine.
With great care you will need to start the machine to observe where the leak is coming from.
At the very bottom of the machine is a black rubber tube that attaches to the bottom of the tub. It splits and goes forward towards the drain pump & filter unit and it also goes towards the back of the machine and attaches to a white air chamber which connects to the fill switch via a long black rubber tube.
Leaks will usually occur in the rubber sump hose; at the air chamber; at the pump connection or pump; or in the drain hose. Careful inspection of these points should reveal its location.
Leaks coming from the tub area can either be a center tub seal or from the inlet water at the top of the machine traveling down along the tub.
Further clarification of the leak location is needed for further diagnosis
