Good afternoon. I have an LG Wave Force washer Model WT5070CW. Started leaking today. Pulled back panel. The water is coming from an opening near the top of the tub, on the right. Considerable flow. No leaks from hoses, pump, or connections.

Thanks, ***** ***** I checked that and all hoses and connections. The leak is from an opening that is part of the plastic drum. Located near top of the drum, on the right, looking from the back.

sorry if the site offered the phone call it was not from me. I had to step away for a moment give me just a few minutes to go over this I will look over your images.

Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 10 days ago.

from the looks of it you must have a broken seal or something going on in there

Can you say more?
Expert:  Webb-Guy replied 10 days ago.

of course I am just going over your parts is all just a few more minutes please.

and just to verify you have inspected the water inlet valve on the inside to ensure that the water is not leaking from that part at all? It can leak from them and run down the side of the drum. Its just the location of the leak makes me think it could be leaking from that part.
