You may need to remove and replace the door gasket. Is there a dirt and soap on the seal itself? This may be a cause of preventing a proper seal from taking place. Here's what you can do. Wipe the door seal carefully making sure that the edge of the gasket is clean.

Water on floor around washing machine


If the machine is a few years old the rubber seal between the drum and the door may have perished.

Temporarily, you may be able to remove it and turn it upside down to cure the leak.

Front door is leaking..I think there is gunk under the grey seal..can that be taken off and cleaned or anything?


If the door glass and the door seal are making proper contact there should not be a problem..The smallest gap, split or tear will let water out. A leaking door seal usually needs to be replaced by a tech....Nomess

Front loader washer leaks from bottom center of door osmetimes


Check inside the door on the bellows gasket to make sure the inlet area (normally at the 10 o'clock position) is properly positioned around the water inlet, sometimes these work themselves off the inlet nozzle and can casue a leak when the washer is filling up.

Also, carefully run your hand around the bellows gasket to see if you can find any small holes that cold be letting water leak out. You'll need a flashlight to make this easier. It is hardly ever the hinges that causes a leak since the hinges are mounted outside of the door seal gasket (bellows gasket) and aren't ever exposed to the water.

LG WM2688HM front loader is leaking water around the door seal


this may be coming from the soap dispenser and running down round the door way and to the bottom- investigate that first. otherwise the seal may be worn/ damaged and needs replacing.

Washer tub slowly fills with water


Is your problem a SLOW FILL problem, or a problem with WATER DRIPPING FROM THE RUBBER DOOR SEAL - or BOTH? If you have a slow fill problem, this is generally caused by a bad fill valve, which can be attributed to hard water deposits or well water mineral deposits. Sometimes the fill valve can be removed, cleaned and reinstalled, but most of the time a new fill valve is required. If you are experiencing water leaking from the rubber door seal (bellow), it may be time to replace it. Sometimes the seal can develop a wrinkle or crease where it meets the glass, which can cause leaks. Water dripping from the door when you open after washing a load is normal. Water dripping during a load is NOT. The bellow may also have started to rip or tear inside the door which may not be noticeable until you pull the folds of the bellow back and look underneath it. I hope this helps.
