The most common place for a front load washer to leak is in the bellow. This is the rubber piece right inside the door. Pull the rubber piece back and check for tears or holes. If there are not any holes then there is probably a hole in the hose that runs from the tub to the pump. Sometimes stupid things like bra underwire and bobbi pins get in here and tear them

While using washing machine water leaks out


sounds like the lower pipe or pump pipe is leaking or come away. you need to pull the washer out and place it on its side (left as you look at front) and check the pipes on the bottom, they have pincer clamps on the pipes, if the pipes are cracked or damaged replace them but usually its just they have come loose from drum movement. and just need fitting back on. also the drain pipe needs to be at least 3 inches from the top level with the water in pipes height of the washer so the water does not just come out.

Unit not going through spin cycle


i do not know about this lg front load but one thing is common about them.
please inspect if the wash mode fills the water to it normal level. if it exceeds the level then take the plug out remove the back cover lid and you will notice that a black colour pipe usually connected to the drum goes to the horn type unit which is a switch. check the pipe id there is any leakage. the best way is to release from the drum side clean the tip and try to blow air from your mouth if the air leaks then put some rubber glue on the leaks let it dry and then check if the leak is removed.
this is actually the master brain for the machine to detect the water which in turn makes the machine move since if there is water in the drum it will not spin.if this does not help then probably the timer is defective through which you set the cycle.
please also check the water supply pipe that connects to your machine it has a filter which might be clogged. clean and try again.
hope this has been useful

Water fills the tub after cycle is over


sounds like you have a leaking solonoid valve (thats the valve that your water pipe connects to at the back of your machine) replacing it is quite easy if you know how to remove the top of your machine (2 screws). If you decide to have a go, disconnect from the mains before doing anything else, and turn off the water supply to the machine. you will need to know if it is filling with hot or cold water (if you have 2 water pipes connected). An easy way to find which it is, is by turning off either the hot or cold connections to it one at a time when its not in use. After all that remove the top of the machine disconnect the leaking valve from the internal pipes and electricial connections (remembering where they go) and replace it with the new one.

Dish washer starts ok then check water light comes on. if you reset the m/c it then starts ok but then the check water light comes on again.If you lightly shake machine from side to side the water starts...


This could be a slight water leak that causes the "anti-flood" system to kick in. This device is a polystireen float and a micro switch at the bottom of the washer. Once a small bit of water has leaked it causes the float to rise and activates the anti flood device that just puts the washer in pump out mode and nothing els. You could try tilting tha washer to get rid of the water at the base or dry it if you have the washer open (front or back). The cause is normaly a slight leak on a clamp or a very small hole in a pipe or can also be a rust speck inside the washer that causes the leak. You need to check the float to see if water leak is the problem.

Water leaks from my detergent dispenser from my front loader washing machine?


This is usually indicative of soemthing blocking the flow of water out of the soap tray, down the connecting pipe and in to the drum chamber.
The soap tray doesnt have any seals as water should just flow into the tray, wash out the soap / fabric softner, and then flow out the back of the tray and down the connecting pipe. When working correctly, there is no pressure or water back-up to cause the water to reach the front of the soap tray.

Take out the tray - your machine user manual will show you how, and check both the tray itself and the "hole" it slots in to for either a build up of solidified soap powder, or some other foreign object. If still leaking, remove the tray again and try to get your hand (a woman's or teenager's hand being smaller is best) down the large oulet at the back of the "hole" the tray slots in to to feel for a blockage.
Do you have young children ? A washing machine soap tray is a great place to hide things !

Occasionally, if the smaller pipes that deliver hot and cold water to the tray come adrift, this can spray water at the front of the machine. This water then has only one real way out - via the soap tray "hole". Most often this will be the cold water pipe as this has higher water pressure to cope with. The only way to check this is to take the top of the machine off.

If after all of the above it still leaks, you'll either need to dismantle the machine enough to see the back of the soap tray "hole", connecting pipe and drum chamber for a better look for problems, or call an engineer.

Leaks water in the counter.


I fixed mine for 25p... you need to take the back off, and the tank holder out (2 screws each). There is a very thin pipe that comes out the pump - that is the leak.
Unclip the little clip and pull out the pipe and fish out the black o-ring out the hole.
Buy a new o-ring and put back together... no leaks =)
