Just bought a used LG front loader and it appears that the door is leaking at the glass...not the seal. I have taken the door apart and am surpised NOT to see any gasket material around where the glass sits. Looks like someone else took it apart and smushed part of the plastic. Do you have a repair manual to send? :? Sorry if I am not doing this right...all new to me;)

Check to make sure there is no damage to the tub gasket or that it is even slightly bent or deformed.

Check to make sure that when you close the door that the glass bowl is pressed hard against the gasket. Do this by shining a flash light through the glass.

There are really two ways to fix this.

one is to get a new gasket and replace the existing one.

Two is to shut the door and run a cycle with really hot water and watch it when it fills and starts washing to make sure it doesn't leak out right away. press up against the door and watch it for a few until it doesn't leak anymore.

If the frame of the unit is damaged this may cause the door to be misaligned.
I've also seen it where the door latch is loose or stuck because it came apart.

good luck.
