How do I remove the gasket from an LG TROMM ultra Steam Washer to clean it completely? I have experienced leaks, but see no leak near the hose fittings, where could the leak be coming from? Washer is 1 year old

There are special pliers for removing the spring loaded wires which hold the front and back side of the gasket in place. You're better off cleaning it in place if necessary. If you have small, inconsistent water leaks, the problem is suds in the fill hose, between the soap dispenser and the tub. There is a small dome at the tub inlet inside the hose which can be removed, but just using HE soap and making sure to use only one tablespoon per load should solve the problem.

Lg tromm washer leaks from detergent drawer


my washer also was leaking from the dispenser and I had a cap from one of the detergent bottles stuck in the inlet hose. Don't know how it got in there but glad I found it so if your washer leaks from the soap tray it could be a cap from your detergent bottle stuck in there.

Lg tromm washer leaking from front door


We have the same problem with our LG washer. Don't think the door can be adjusted but I'm not for sure. I think the gasket is wore out but haven't checked on fixing the problem yet because it barely leaks.

I have water leaking onto the floor from my LG Tromm washing machine. I tried to check for blockage of the hose but it is still leaking.


Check the connections on the back of the washer for the cold & hot water connections. This just happen to me last week. My husband tighten them and resolved the problem. Good Luck !

Water leaks past the water pump filter gasket reseating the filter does not stop the leaking lg tromm Front Loading Washer


I regularly clean my filter of slime and debris (after not even realizing this needed to be done and having my pump give out of me). TWICE I have awoken to a flooded basement due to leaks in the filter area:

The first time, the plastic stopper was not in the small rubber drain hose properly and had popped off.

The second time, I had cleaned the gasket, inserted it tightly like I always do, and awoke to another flood! I thought perhaps the rubber gasket on the filter was on wrong, but it was fine. I inserted it tightly several times and water still poured out! It turns out there was a small stone lodged in the thread of the receiving end of the filter causing there to be a bad seal. Lesson learned. Another $2000.00 worth of flooring ruined.

How do i clean my filter for my lg washer


On the front bottom left is a small access paner about 5 x3 1/2 in. Gently pop it open from the top. Tou will see a black drain hose with a plug in the end. Place a pan on the floor and remove the plug and drain the resudial water from the machine until it stops. Then, unscrew the filter in the same opening counter clockwise to remove it. Clean and replace in the reverse order installing plug in hose and do not over tighten filter. Run a load and check for leaks and replace panel.

Washer leaks out of the bottom. checked drain hose it is not plugged, checked hot and cold water hoses they're ok.


REMOVE THE TOP OF WASHER AND CHECK THE WATER INLET VALVE. I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING AND FINALLY DISMANTLED THE WASHER UNTIL I FOUND THE HOT WATER INLET VALVE WAS LEAKING FROM THE TOP AND DRIPPING DOWN THE TUB AND ENDING UP ON MY FLOOR. IT WILL DRIP EVEN WHEN THE WASHER IS NOT ON DUE TO THE PRESSURE BUILT UP ON THE VALVE.

LG Tromm WM0642HW washer leaking water!


I have the same problem - just a small amount of water leaking out from under the machine. I removed the top cover and found one of the water lines rubs on the vent tube and has wore completely through. Should be an easy fix, as the line runs from the #2 spigot on the water inlet to the detergent box - both connections are right on top.
