That little tube is most likely the water height pressure switch,, if this is plugged up or if the switch is bad then the water will not stop filling because no pressure is sensed.

My LG WM2455 has water leaking from lower front near the front access door. I have checked the catch basin and drained the tube but still get leakage after the next load. What could the problem be?


If the washer is leaking water the drain pump might have a hole or crack. Or, the bearings might be worn out. Replace the drain pump if it is leaking water, they're not repairable.
Check the condition of the drain hose that connects the tub to the pump.

you will have to first remove the front of the machine two screws at the bottom of the front pannel tip away from the machine to release the front tabs. you will then find screws run up into the top remove these and the top will tilt back locate the filler tube from the valve and follow to the inlet to the washer about half way there should be a vacum cylender inside a rubber tube that has probably become loaded with hard water deposits or just stiff from age replace the tube and leaking should stop

Water leaking from the bottom of my front load washer


Common causes
door gasket damaged(torn)
Dispenser fault
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.

"OE" message


OE is actually DE - Drain Error. Pop open the little door on the bottom left of your washer, and unscrew the cap on the little tube on the left. ***Water will drain out!***
Once the water is out, unscrew the bigger tube on the right. This holds your drain filter. It is likely clogged, so clean it out and reinstall the filter and cap from the small hose.
Hopefully this fixes it!

Bosch washing machine leaks at right bottom


The part that you removed, was the pump filter, the pump is located behind the filter, possibly, the pump itself is leaking, or the filter cover is not fastened in tight enough, pr the filter seal is defective, if after tightening, it still leaks, suggest you replace the pump.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

LG WM2487 Leak Front Left


Not sure if this machine is similar to the WM2277, but here is the procedure for that - my leak was in the "baffels" hose that connects the drum to the drain pump:

1. Drain the machine - pry the panel at the front left lower corner to get access to a stoppered tube. drain as much water from here as possible.
2. Remove screw visible inside this area and remove the white molded plastic - also remove the screw behind that plastic.
3. Open the washer door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door gasket. Carefully pull the door gasket away from the panel push inside and then reclose the door.
4. Remove the detergent drawer and the two screws visible behind it.
5. Pull the top of the electronics panel away from the machine and lift up - place on top of machine or hook it out of the way
6 Remove the 4 screws that are visible holding the front panel to the machine. Left the entire front panel up about 2 inches and swing to the right (there is a wire connecting the door to the machine on the right)

Leak from tap at front of machine


the filter may not be sitting right in its slot - an obstacle may be keeping the filter from being seated all the way - once the filter is fully seated, it blocks the water to the front tap

Machine fault code "f13"


Plug off the wall. There is a thin rubber tube going from the switch area to the exit near the outlet tube. Probably this is blocked. This tube should be free from any blockage; take out the top clip from this tube and blow into it - it should be free, clear the blockage if any and refit. This is the water level tube which tells the machine when to switch off water, etc.....
