Firstly check to see if there is a water line from the door to the floor, thats the first sign of a Door Gasket in need of replacing.

Then check the drain pump, which you may need to open the Washing Machine for (Sometimes it is easy and accessible from the bottom). To open it, you must first remove the Top Panel, and the Back then the front, depending how difficult the part is to reach.

If it is not the drain pump, you might have noticed a broken hose while you were searching for the drain pump which is found at the left side on the bottom of the machine. The most common hoses that leak is the Top Soap/Breather hose (The one going into the drum from the Soap Box), and the Sump hose which is attached to the pump and drum below.

Hope this helps :-)

I have a venus vw 1000 b washing machine and it looks like the rubber door seal has melted and left a smell of burning rubber? how can this happen?


Sometimes the door seal can vulcanise due to reactions from detergents. If you have noticed this then replacement is the only option as there will be water leak from the tub during wash.

I have an LG Tromm WM2277HW front load washing machine that suddenly started leaking from the bottom of the machine. All hoses and drains are tight and the water is coming from underneath. Originally, it...


Escaping water alongside a nasty smell is often the cause of a blocked water pump or resivour the more washs you do the more the lint will build up & the more the lint builds up the more bloked it will become meening the more water that will escape.. this should be an easy fix but not for everyone.. 1st make sure you have disconected all the power supply then check any or all filters you may have after that you will need to look inside to find the water resivour this will be a plastic bottle shaped for your machine just looking at it you will be able to tell if it has a lint or limescale build up if so it will need removing & flushing out.. there may also be an extra filter at the bottom front of your machine if you open this some water will leak out & you will be able to see if you have a lint build up (this will also have the best of your nasty smell in it) the smell is an effect simular to doing a wash & leaving the cloths in the machine for a few days basicly the lint is submerged in water for long periods of time giving it that smell once cleaned out the smell will subside too

Hope this helps

LG leaking from bottom, Not the filter clean-out.


Not necessary to blame LG, ALL of these front loaders are garbage. They were designed poorly and released too soon just to have a new gimmick.

I have never liked my lg and now it seems that


You might check the water inlet valve on the back of the machine where the water hooks up. There should be a blue plastic water valve. remove the water hose on both sides hot and cold. At the blue water inlet valve inside the connector there are small filtering screens (similar to an areator valve on your sink faucet) They may be clogged by sediment and this would cause your low water issue and possibly the smell. Simply pull out the screens with a pair of needle nosed pliers and replace. Hope this helped

Maytag top load washing machine leaking water from bottom


The machine is leaking water from the bottom, I think the leak is in the area near where the motor is mounted. Before we noticed the water comes from underneath the washer, we smelled like burning rubber.

Bed Smell


this sounds like you need the rubber replacing around the drum that seals the door to stop it leakig when the washing machine is in teh spin cycle this gets hot and starts to smell this can get really bad and will eventually start to leak this can be replaced but you will need to get someone to do it for you as it is a big job shouldnt cost to much to get done but will be cheaper than replacing the whole machine hope this is some help................

Mold Smell in front loading LG Tromm


Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and move out the bad smell. Good luck!
