SOURCE: Suds leaking from back of washer near top

I have the same problem now and again on my front loading LG. I noticed that it is coming out of a vent on the tub right where you metioned that is part of the design. Either there is too much detergent or the drain is restricted. When there are lots of suds they have to go somewhere. It's either out the drain or out the vent.

But seriously, take it out back and shoot it at you're earliest convenience and steer clear of LG appliances in the future. Good luck!

SOURCE: Washer Leaks from Detergent Compartment

Two things might be wrong with this unit.  One problem is there is a blockage inside the hose that sends water into drum.  Make sure that's clear.  The other problem is the dispenser assembly may have a leaking problem and will spray water at an angle that will cause it to leak through the dispenser drawer.  My recommendation is to have the dispenser assembly inspected and possibly replaced.

SOURCE: whirlpool duet washer leaks from

We just had the same problem. We took off the three screw on the back to remove the top panel on washer. From there we took the screws off the electric face plate on the front. Be careful, there is a screw located inside the door. You must open the door to get to the screw. Next we removed the bottom panel door and then the four screws to the mail metal panel on the front. Hold that panel because the rubber gasket is still connected. Then you will see a rubber hose directly under the drawer. Take the rubber hose off at the bottom nearest the drum. We found a sock that had wedged itself up and was causing a back up. After I cleared it, the washer works just fine.

Why whirlpool duet washer


There are a number of causes for a SUD error. The most common is using non-HE detergent or just too much detergent. Try taking the clothes out and running the washer empty. (Do not add detergent.) When the tub doesn't have any suds, retry with a small load and very small amount of HE detergent.
The next issue is clogged drain hose/pump filters. Take the drain hose off the back of the washer and clean any debris with Q-tips or similar until you see the filter screen. The pump filter is sometimes called a coin catcher. You'll need to carefully check that. Take a small bucket or bowl to catch the water when you disconnect the hose from the tub to the pump.
The final cause is a leak either at the detergent "box" or in the tub or a bad sensor claiming there is such a leak. If the unit is detecting suds outside of the tub, you will need to call for repair. Depending on the age of the washer, this may be covered under warranty.

I hope this helps.

Flashing F-21 and SD wont finish a load


Your washer is designed to use a TINY amount of water. This conserves water and takes less energy to heat the water. Since it is so little water used any amount above a teaspoonful of detergent will reek havoc with the delicate controls on the machine. F21 Long drain Possible cause: Clogged filter, clogged/failed pump.82f0c42.jpg Sud= Suds lock detergent overdose. Too much detergent, the wrong stuff, added to the wrong compartment, you gotta use HE soap and you gotta use the correct amount. You get that computer thinking suds is in there and the machine is gonna go into a tailspin. Because of the low amount of water a9be475.jpg
used in HE machines, it is important
to use an HE detergent (low sudsing)
which is specially formulated to work
best under these conditions. The two
most important considerations
of a front loading washer are suds
control and soil concentration.
First, the tumbling action in an
HE machine generates
more suds than a top loader.
Tumbling the clothes in and out of the
water breaks the water surface
causing air to be trapped in the solution,
creating suds or foam. Multiple problems
can occur from oversudsing, such as
flooding from suds overflowing out of
the machine, formation of a suds cushion
during the tumbling action which reduces
mechanical energy,and “suds lock” which prevents
the machine from effectively spinning out the
water. In the situation of suds lock, the
machine trys to FIX the foaming problema by
stopping the cycle momentarily to allow
the suds to dissipate and then adding cold
water. This routine the machine goes
through to correct for over-sudsing results
in loss of energy and water savings and
can significantly lengthen the cycle time
(sometimes by as much as 2x). HE detergents
prevent over-sudsing and allow for
better rinsing of suds. HE detergent matters in
soil management also. Though HE washers
use about 1/3 of the water of a
top loader, the concentration of soil in the
load is much higher due to the larger
loads. To handle the higher amount of
soil, many HE detergents are specially
formulated with soil suspending ingredients
to prevent soil from re-depositing
onto clothes. Only use detergent with HE marked on it.
Use the correct amount.
The technical data sheet along with that
pesky clogged pump is located behind the
toe kick panel; remove the screws under the
bottom front edge of the washer. Tip the appliance
back to get to them screws. With the screws
removed, the panel will comes down and off.

Top 10 frontload washer problems

1)Water fill problem: water took more than 10 minutes to fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill. Check hose, clean screens.
2)Excessive vibration: noisey,roar, knocking noises. Bad damper,bearing or broken trunion. no error code
3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment: washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning products in wrong compartment.
4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged drain usually indicated as a LD/DE, if a code is given (long drain/drain error) Clear pump of objects
5)Drum overfilled: usually caused by sediment in the water level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.Find it and blow out the sediment, re-secure pump out water and retry.
6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes/objects keeping door from completly closing. Tighten door latch, add washers if nessesary to make good contact and close door tighter in case of leaks.Note some models send a sig nal to the motor and another to the control letting both know the door is secure before proceeding, corrosion gets into the lid lock and the door can be locked and the control is ready but the motor ain't getting the message.
7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards. Oops.
8)Oversudsing: Wrong Detergent, too much detergen, detergent in wrong dispensing drawer, turbidity monitors pick up particles in the water and judge soil content then the washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too much and declares a suds error. On some models a suds detect is determined by the motor over amping, most machines will try a few mini loads to correct the problem. Remove detergent, retry
9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
10)Water heating error, hE, the termister/heater is out.

LG WM2487 front load washer spews suds out of port on rear.


You are likely using too much detergent or the detergent is not high-efficiency detergent. Change detergents and/or lower amount and this problem should go away.

The water port on the back allows air inside the tub to escape. However, if the wrong type or quantity of detergent are used, excess suds will flow from this port.

Soap suds leaking out of the unit


you either used the wrong soap, use only dishwasher detergent, or you used way too much and the unit is not designed to hold in suds. rinse out the unit and keep checking to see if the suds have gone away. then use the right amount of detergent and things should be ok after that.
