LG LDS5811 Leaking from Door
« on: June 26, 2014, 09:20:16 PM »
I removed the front panel and the leak is coming from the upper left side.  It is near the vent and blower assembly. 

The manual also shows a gasket that goes between the inner door and the blower assembly and there is a gasket on the vent assembly that appears to have some scaling residue on it.

Does anyone have experience with this and know which part is likeliest to fail?

Thanks for any help.

If the leak is originating at the BLOWER HOUSING (5835ED2002D)---twist the round vent cap on the other side of the door---counterclockwise and remove.
Add silicone sealant to the round/black gasket and re-install.

If the leak occurs at the joint where the DUCT (5232DD2001A) attaches to the Blower Housing---pull off the Duct from the Blower Housing and add silicone sealant to the "lip" on the Duct and re-install.

If the leak is at the outlet (bottom) of the Duct Tube---replace the Blower Housing Assy (5835ED2002D)
