Leaking from vent...LG Tromm M/N:WM2077CW

5 posts in this topic

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.

Vent ?

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.

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
