Small leak form door
« on: August 02, 2008, 07:52:04 AM »
At times I notice a slight stream of water from the bottom of the door on my wife's LG WM2277 washer. Has anyone noticed this on this unit? Unit has operated normally at other times with no leaks.

Hi rudyjr

I know on our own front load washer we need to keep the inside glass clean. It builds up a ring around the glass were the door seals.

also if you use too much detergent, the suds level will be too high and may cause leaks.

all it takes is one hair laying across the grey door gasket and you can get a leak, it acts like a wick

if the gasket looks good(no tears or nicks) you can shim the door latch so the door seal is a lil tighter....

Thanks for the info, how do you go about shimming the door latch? The gasket appears to be in perfect shape.

around the outer edge of the door boot(gasket) is a spring/clamp, remove the clamp and peel away the boot
you can then reach inside and get at the latch
to make the latch tighter you remove the 2 screws that hold the latch to the front of the washer then.... move the latch to the side, and put a washer on each screw before you insert the screw back into the latch, when the screws are tightened the latch will be sitting back that lil bit extra

when i say you put a washer on the screw i mean the washer goes on the screw after the screw is through the washer front panel,

   The small  leaks are due to lent or hair on the glass of unit. Seen it many times. Just clean the glass to help with this problem. This is common for peeps who have lots of pets.
