LG Washing Machine Leakage - Drain Hose

Troubleshooting
LG Washing Machine Leakage - Drain Hose

Leaks from an LG washer are often easily resolved without a technician's support, if the source can be identified. If you have identified the source of the leak as the washer drain hose, please follow our instructions.



Inspect the Drain Hose

Inspect the drain hose for any holes, cracks, or kinks and ensure the drain hose is properly inserted into the home's drain.

If you see a hole or crack, please visit our "Request a Repair" for the drain hose to be replaced.

If the hose has come out, re-secure the hose properly.

Inspect the Drain Area

If there is significant water overflow from the drain, the drain line may not be large enough in diameter, or it may have buildup restricting the line that needs to be removed.



Evidence for overflow

Inspect the Drain Area

Pour one gallon of water into the drain and watch it reaching to the top. If the water reaches the top and leaks over the edge, there is a clog. You can clear the clog by using a drain cleaner liquid, or you could call a plumber. If the whole gallon drains without leaking, the drain is probably fine. Make sure the drain hose is properly installed.
