Question about LG WM3987HW Front Load Washer / Dryer
The main drama i have with these lg washer/dryers is the drying vent blocks up with lint which causes excess heat build up around the heater and it often results in a small hole melting through the front tub under the heater vent where it joins to the plastic tub, it also results in water leaking out the melted hole when it dries but not during the wash as the hole is at the top of the tub, parts are relatively cheap for what they are but its a massive job to replace the front tub.

Tips for a great answer:
In all occasions it is important that your observation
is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and
solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose
pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is
important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose
would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be
back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve
can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all
cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening
of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on
the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the
cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
