The Vent Kit behind the lower door panel, upper left corner has a rubber, solonoid stopper. Pressure from the spray arms overcome the rubber as the stopper hardens over time, allowing water to enter into the vent blower assembly. I found my replacement on Sears-Parts for $40 w/ shipping and just ordered it today. Be sure to turn off the breaker to the washer before removing the lower front door panel - 120vac in there, don't want no electricutions.

LG Tromm WM2277 leaking from back bottom


The last spin is the final Emptying phase. There has to be a leak somewhere in the exiting water route. All tubing and the water pump along with all clamps will need to be checked for integrity.

We have an LG lds5811ww dishwasher with IE error


check for voltage at the water valve when it should be filling Try disconnecting the Water Valve outlet from the DishWasher and run the output into a bucket if all is well with the valve then remove the door panel and inspect the wires near the bottom of the door. the wires get buried in the tar like insulation causing the wires to break as the door is opened and closed.That tar like substance is one of the worst things they could of ever put into that machine causes the wires to break apart adn become brittle

My LG front load washer is leaking during the rinse cycle. I cleaned the filter and it is still leaking. What should I do?


Leakage can be a few things..Check the door boot seal for any small rips, next the fill hoses are the watertight, next drain hose , now under the machine is the pump ok, Last assuming all hoses are ok has the drum a hole in it...good luck

LDS5811WW - machine will not power on??? When we push the power button, the machine won't turn on - we get nothing. Almost like it's unplugged - it's not, AND Yes there is power to the outlet. Front door...


Some newer d/w have a lockout feature to prevent littles from turning it on, often the kiddos accidentally activate the lockout during their explorations. Any chance it's locked?

Also, I believe this type of unit has an adjustable seal at the bottom of the door that rubs on the bottom of the tub. You may need to pull this down a little to solve your leak.

Water drips from under door. the water is


There is a ventilator mechanism on the top right corner, behind the control panel / front cover.

******TURN THE POWER OFF AT THE BREAKER BEFORE STARTING, BE SURE POWER IS OFF ******

Open the door; remove all of the screws that hold just the front panel (not the controls panel). These screws are located on the inside of the door, around the outer edges. The front door panel will be able to be removed. Close the door with the front panel removed.

***IMPORTANT be sure nobody will come in contact with the exposed wiring (especially little kids) *********

Turn back on the breaker, turn on the washer, and run a quick rinse cycle. See where the water is coming from.

On my washer (same model) i had to replace the entire vent kit (sears parts ~$40.00) Call them with your model and serial number, or search online. Removal and replacement was very easy, and it did fix my leaking problem. Checked with the front door panel off and a quick rinse before I TURNED POWER BACK OFF and put the front cover back on.

Root cause?? From what I can tell, the solenoid stopper hardens over time, which allows for water from the spray arms to leak past.

Get it fixed now before you smoke the motor or control card. My part number was ABT35083501 be sure to double check model before purchasing.

Good luck!
