The door can be readjusted...
Just loosen the screws on the hinge side...move the door to re-alinge it and then re-tighten the screws...that should help the door to shut easier...make sure that someone did not hang on the door and spring/bend the door hinge....You may have to replace the hinge if that is the case....sometimes small children think that things like that are their own personal playground...

My LG front load washer won't drain model#WM2050CW how can I fix that?

If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

We have a LG WM2050CW and today after it went the rinse cycle it drained all over the basement floor, underneath the washer and then came out of the door.

sounds like you might have a broken hose or a loose hose. remove the back panel from the unit and inspect the plumbing. also -- while you are doing the inspection - pull the pump screen/drain plug and clean out any debris that might be in there ( you will need to do this sometime anyway ).
if you are still having troubles -- please feel free to write me back here and I will do my best to walk you through it.

I have an LG WM2050CW washer and I cannot get it to fill with water. I have checked the filters in the back and they are clean, I have checked the hoses and they are functioning. I get a buzz from the back...

Have you checked the selonoid valve? It's the piece that your hoses connect to. The part isn't that expensive when you compare it to a new machine. I changed one several years ago on a Whirlpool and I think it was around $15-20.

Water leaking in front of washer mainly from what seems to be the gasket around front of washer.

Either the rubber boot is damaged in some way, or the door is not locking tight enough. Thoroughly inspect the boot for tears or gouges in the rubber surface. Small imperfections can be repaired with silicon glue, but larger tears will require replacement of the boot--which can be done done through the door opening, but requires patience to do so. Inspect the door lock for damage or wear if the boot looks to be in good condition.
