Hi! I'm wondering if anyone can advise me what the best course of action to take with my LG washer. (4 years old)
It's leaking intermittently (say every 3rd wash) sometimes more often, sometimes less
It seems to happen when going through the emptying cycle (usually 7mins before switching off) sometimes it will leak when going through to the rinse cycle... it's never consistent!
I've checked the filter hose thing (bottom left hand corner) and now seem to have empty BOWLS of water every couple of washs (is this significant? If so what does it mean?)
I've checked the little screw cap in the bottom left corner flap to check for stuck objects or limescale ... it's neither ... both clean and empty.
It's not the soap drawer or gunk in the conditioner tray - I clean it at least once a month. I've cleaned the intake drawer recess regularly - there is some slight limescale but nothing terrible... no mould, nothing.
The leak appeared
to come from under the drawer... but in fact I've ascertained it comes from under the electronic panel ... at least it drips /runs down from underneath the LCD panel .... or even on the side around the door...
I've also discovered a rust patch where the silver "paint" has come away from the front of the washer... i don't know how/when it happened ... the washer is on quite a lot as I've a young family ....
Please advise I don't want to waste £70 on a call out charge if it's a sock in an inner part of the pump or something... I've got a 5y parts warranty is is advisable to use... Is there anything my husband can do to it that will extend its life for a little longer
Thanks in advance
