Question about LG WM2077CW XL Front Load Stackable Washer with 7 Washing Programs

1 Answer

Leaky washing machine

We bought our washer in 2006 at Home Depot. I noticed water on the floor more than a few times. I made sure door was closed properly, gasket clean, hoses good from the house and to machine, exit hose fine - no blockage. It was ok for a while then I checked it the other day and suds were coming out all over the floor - and I did not think I was using too much detergent. The machine had 4 minutes left of final spin. I pulled the machine out to find suds-water coming out of safety air vent. That night we again did all the checks- hoses, gasket, cleaned out the drain pump filter, inspected the screens in the hoses and made sure machine was level-also decided to use even less detergent. Everything good for about 10-15 loads until today noticed water on floor again coming from the safety air vent. I make sure my loads are not that big and adjust spins to bulk of loads. There have been no warning messages on the machine. What could be the problem? I would appreciate your help.

Water collecting in wash drum when not operating


You are correct. One of the solenoids on the water valve is not shutting completely and will need to be replaced before it sticks wide open and cause a flood. Here is the part to order. To replace the valve, remove the screws on the top panel, slide it back and lift it off. There you will have access to the valve replacement.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would suspect the water inlet control valve may be malfunctioning- not closing (its default no power position).
Quick temporary fix, although tiresome, turn whichever tap, hot or cold, off when washing finished. You've probably already thought of that!
In the meantime I would suggest a service call is required ;-0(

The water solenoid could be defective. A solenoid is an electrical switch that pulls a shaft out of the water line to let the water flow in. The timer controls this along with water level sensors. That solenoid is a big electric magnet that operates when the power is applied to the electric coil and it snaps the shaft out of the water line allowing water to flow. It also compresses a spring around the shaft and when the power is removed from the coil, the spring snaps the shaft(valve) back into the seat of the water line. If the spring is weak or broken or blocked by debris from hard water, it does not close all the way and allows water to leak. Very similar to a leaky faucet.i expect that the solenoid will have to be replaced.

Mildew buildup on rubber at door opening


Hello mamie7,
You are not alone with your problem on your front load washing machine..seems they all suffer from this phenomenon. because in order to keep the water from leaking out the fornt door.. it has to be water tight.. and because it is water tight, it is also air tight so any water left in the gasket for any length of time will develop mold and get mildew there.. There are a few solutions ( no pun intended) floating around but I subscribe to a few basics.. One being .. wipe the gasket after a wash cycle and leave the door open to air dry any moisture that remains. The problem with this is that some housholds have small children and the washer then becomes a danger to them... So.. you can do a periodic wash cycle using a product called AFRESH ( in tablet form and sold at home depot etc) or you can try this product at http://www.smellywasher.com/ . Good luck.. hope this helps you..

Water accumulates inside the washer


i guess you have washer drain pipe plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap. if so, when you empty sink, some of the water goes down the washer drain pipe and ends up filling your machine.
to cure, take the drain pipe as high up as possible under the sink in a swan neck and that should cure it. its a common problem
