On my WT1501CW it was a leaky inlet valve. part #5221EA1008F. It was dripping water into the floor. I found the issue by removing the top rear panel. This exposed that the parts around where the hoses connect were wet on the inside. I remove the inlet valve with the hoses still connected and turned on the water and small mists of water were coming out of the plastic. Hope this helps someone

This could be the rubber seal or the door lock. If the door lock is not pulling it tightly closed then it needs to be replaced. Check the seal really closely and make sure there are not cracks and it does not look deformed

SOURCE: lg front load washer leaking from bottom of machine

I just fixed this problem - there is a rubber hose that hooks the bottom of the drum to the drain and recycle pumps - it is ribbed and it developed a hole. To confirm and repair (repair can be done from the front of the machine)

  1. Unplug the machine.
  2. Drain whatever water you can from the machine using the stoppered hose behind the bottom left panel
  3. Unscrew the visible screw holding the plastic in place near the drain hose and filter
  4. If you can pull the plastic recessed piece out, there is one screw visible behind it - unswcrew this. If you cannot pull it out now, you should be able to get it after you remove the screws in step 10
  5. Pull out the detergent drawer (push in the middle back "botton" to release the drawer to pull out fully)
  6. Unscrew two screws in the drawer area.
  7. Pull the top of the electronics assembly away from the machine and lift the assembly out (place on top of the machine or hook it out of the way)
  8. Open the door and remove the spring loaded wire around the door seal (be careful as the seal can be torn)
  9. Pull the seal away from the metal front panel, then close the door
  10. Remove four screws at the top of the front panel (that were behind the eletronics assembly) - If you already have removed the screw from step 4, proceed, otherwise lean the top of front panel out and pop the plastic out, hold panel in place and remove that bottom screw from step 4.
  11. Lift front panel about two inches, swing the entire front panel to the right and set against something - You should now be able to see inside the machine.
  12. There is a black hose right in the middle - when I squeezed mine a little, I could see where the water was dripping out from the bottom.
  13. There are three clamps - two that can be squeezed with pliers and removed, one that has to be unscrewed (phillips head screw - it is a bit blind as the screw faces the back of the machine) - Once I got mine off - I could see the hole.
  14. Order replacement and reassmble in the opposite order

SOURCE: LG front load washer -- water leaks

First, clean off the bottom of the door glass where it contacts the gray tub gasket when the door closes. Any hair or other build up can result in leakage. Second, if that does not completely solve your leak, you can move the location of the spring which holds the tub gasket from the very bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position). Third: Sometimes, the reason you get a leak is due to the installation. If the washer was pushed into place by applying pressure in the center front of the washer, the outer front panel can be slightly deformed (inwerd) resulting in leakage from the door. If that is the case, sometimes you can remove the outer clamp and outer part of the gray seal and pull out on the front panel to correct the situation if it is not too severe, rather than replacing the entire front panel.

Leaking LG washer


There is no easy way to do this. Unplug and unhook the machine, use a wet and dry vacuum to drain the water out through the drain hose, lay the unit down so that you can see the bottom and very carefully inspect the pump, the hoses and the tub seal.

Own a lg wm1832cw front load washer doesnt seem to clean properly when wearing tee shirts for an hour smells like they never were washed paid alot of money for this thing seems cheaper top load machines...


Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

LG Top Load Washer


this could be a drain hose loose or broken if the leak only occurs during rinse. If it leaks all the time, could be a broken outer drum or worn tub seal.
Hold inner drum and turn bothways. If it turns bothways, you have a bad bearing, and hence, a bad tub seal. If it turns in one direction only, bearing's good; but tub seal could still be bad.

Water leaks out bottom of washer when filling


Open up the top of the machine after disconnecting the mains. Check the pipes coming from the inlet valve to the dispenser box. One of these must hv come off. Refix carefully.
