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:  AppTech8579 replied 8 months ago.

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

The hoses and connections are bone dry. It is dripping from the front. exactly center of the machine.
Customer: replied 8 months 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.
