Hello all,

Well my LG washer leaks water during the spin cycle...actually water just pours out from the vent. I've read about a valve that supposed to close during the spin cycle, but can't find any other information about correcting or fixing thiss problem. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thank-you in advance.

The AIR VENT behind the washer---white plastic outlet?

May have a sticky/stuck MUSHROOM VALVE (or missing altogether).

Looking at the rear of the washer---the top cover has 2 phillips-type screws per side.

Remove both of the *lower* screws.

Slide the top cover rearward (may take considerable effort) about 2 inches.

Lift top cover & remove.

You'll notice a black rubber bellows type hose near the top/center of the washer---loosen the band clamp on the *tub* and pull off the hose.

There should be a dome-shaped cap (MUSHROOM VALVE) in the round hole (replace if missing).

The MUSHROOM VALVE should slide up & down freely---if sticky---replace with a new valve.

Most leaks at this AIR VENT are caused by overuse of "HE" type detergent or incorrect type detergent.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

Hello John63,

I'd removed the cover prior to posting and I didn't notice any "mushroom valve". Tried looking up this piece but can't seem to locate yet. But thank-you for this information. Now I know where to look and what to look for.


Don
