Customer Question
My LG front loader...

My LG front loader seems to be leaking from the bottom left near the back. Its gotten a little worse with each wash cycle. I am reading the answer now to a similar question.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your LG is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Its about 3 -4 years old and we bought it at home depot.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

We live in a rural area and I cant find anyone reliable to work on it, so for now yes.

If you pul the refrigerator and and remove the the back access panel, unscrew the top panel of the washer itself as well and just watch. Where is the water coming from when you run a cycle? The vent near the top of the tub? Out the back plastic cover on the back of the tub? etc...

The refrigerator?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

Sorry I'm not sure why I said refrigerator but as you can see I also said washer after that.

Im in my office not by the washer. So it will cost me another $24 to do this on the telephone?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Can I resume this later when my husband is available?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 7 months ago

You can just reply back when you're by the washer after you have checked the things I mentioned earlier. The $24 phone option is something the site offers automatically and you can just decline that option---that is not something I sent.
