My LG WM2277 front loading washer occasionally leaks out of the
dispenser drawer before I get a chance to close the drawer! The
leaking bleach runs down inside, as well as down the outside, of the
I called LG, who sent out a service technician. The technician stated
that he was familiar with the problem. The solution, he said, was to
NOT fill bleach/detergent/softener all the way up to the MAX fill
lines. Otherwise the siphon tube will suck all the fluid out of the compartment, and because the drawer hasn't yet been closed the fluid
will flow right down into and along the front side of the machine.
Some of the bleach that spills inside the machine collects in a pool,
which remains until a subsequent wash cycle when it flows into the drum
and destroys clothing by putting bleach spots in it.
Although over the past year since the service call I have tried not to
fill the bleach all the way up to the max fill line when running loads
it was nearly impossible to not make a mistake once in a while. The
bleach compartment is very small and the funnel on top of the
compartment makes it very difficult to see inside the compartment and
gauge just how high the bleach level is, so inevitably the bleach will
reach the max fill line despite my best effort not to fill it so.
Recently I have noticed that rust is bubbling up through the enamel
coating on the front of my washing machine just below the dispenser
drawer. Apparently the bleach, which is highly corrosive, has rusted
the washing machine from the inside out.
Anyone else having these issues?
