LG WM2032HW gasket replacement

I think the gasket needs to be replaced on my washer, it is leaking from the front door, the machine is 5 years old and it is working fine other than the leak. I need instructions on how to disasemble the machine to get to the gasket. step by step instructions will help.

    same problem

    Here is how I was finally able to replace the gasket, I follow the disassemble instructions on the repair manual starting from page 26 with the control panel, then the dispenser assembly only steps 1 through 3, jump to the cabinet cover on page 29 and follow the instructions all the way to the end of page 30. when putting it back on just make sure that the larger opening of the gasket goes into the tub area and the smaller opening goes on the front of the loader. The gasket should fit perfectly back in with no problem if you are installing it the correct way. Use a vice grip nose plier, to reinstall the spring back on to the gasket. below is a link to the repair manual. good luck and let me know how it turns out.

    My LG wm1814cw has the same problem. I have a slight drip from the door at teh bottom, but not all the time. My unit is just over a year old and warranty has expired. I have paid a considerable amount for the washer/dryer combo and thought I bought the best and upset that it is leaking in such a short time.

    Is there any reason why this seal should fail so quickly?

    Is there any adjustment on the door or locking mechanism that can resolve this issue?

    If I press in on the door the leak stops. Is there any other solution other than replacing the seal?

    My 3 yr old washer developed a leak and I confirmed it was in the bottom of the door gasket. Found pn 4986ER0001A on ebay for $48. Easily removed old gasket without disassembling the washer. Two large spring clamps popped loose once spring was located. Water hose slid off of white hard-plastic piece and gasket was off. Spent over 2 hours trying to reattach inner most spring clamp without removing front of washer. I'm convinced that it would take a magician or very specialized tools to do this.
    Removed to screws from back of washer, slid top back 2 inches, removed 2 screws from top of front panel, 3 screws from bottom of front panel (behind white plastic door on left side). Disconnected wire from door switch and removed front panel.
    Gasket was fairly easy to install now. Spent 30-40 minutes. Springs are tricky. After trying several methods, I finally looped a 10 inch wire through the spring loop and pulled it down over the hook. Do-able job but I'd suggest removing the front panel. Hope this helps someone.

I have changed these without disassembling the unit. Just remove the spring from the gasket, then peel back the gasket to remove the inner spring. This is the easy part, getting the inner spring back on is a pain in the neck, but it can be done. The spring will give you problems either way. Good Luck

I have a three year old LG front load washer that has started to leak. I have replaced the hoses but the problem persists. Any suggestions before I call the repair man.

Where is it leaking from? The front or the back? If it is from the front replace the door gasket. If it is leaking from the back you will need to remove the back panel and get into the drain line and make sure that the drain line from the pump to to outside drain line is ok and not broke or loose

Bad vibrations/shaking with LG washing machine WM2032HW

What's the exact model of your washing machine? I'll need this to get you exact part numbers.
If you're looking for a quick and cheap fix that works. Try installing a rubber anti-vibration pad under the washer. I've had the best luck with a pad called Silent Feet. They are pretty hard to find in stores but carries the full line of Silent Feet anti-vibration pads. They will provide you with the best results short of replacing the full shock isolation assembly in the washer. And they cost a lot less.

Front load washer leaks

It's not difficult to line up the boot around the door. The difficult part is taking out the tub (basket and plastic shell). Everything needs to be disconnected, and removed from the back, as well the tub is very heavy and best to do as a two person job.

If your washer is only 5 years old, it's kind of a 50/50. The cost (with labour) to fix the leak would come to approx $450 cdn.

You may have a bearing problem and it will need to be looked at by a qualified LG technician.  That is a big job and will require total disassembly of the tub and drum assembly to get to the bearings.  There are 2 of them.
