Customer Question

Hi John,
My LG WM3150H*C front loading washer is leaking water. It seems to be coming from the center of the washer. It even leaks (slowly) when the machine isn't even running. I drained and cleaned out the drain on the bottom front left. Lots of water came out but is still leaking. Thanks a lot.

So machine not running, and is empty but still leaks?

It seems to leak more when a cycle is running.

This would be the water valve faulty and you will need to replace it to fix this problem.

Is this something I can fix myself? Do you mean the water valve connection that feeds hot/cold to the machine?
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 11 days ago.

Yes you can DIY and yes the device the hoses hook to on the unit.

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
The hoses and connections are bone dry. It is dripping from the front. exactly center of the machine.
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
It is actually dripping into the below pedestal and coming through a small hole in the bottom of the pedestal to the floor.

In that case sounds like the tub seal. You can disassemble it and run a cycle to watch and see where the leak is coming from.
