    Default WM3875HWCA LG front loader leaks around pump filter

    Model Number: WM3875HWCA
    Brand: LG
    Age: 6-10 years

    If I pour water into the drum, it comes leaking out around the threads of the pump filter. I replaced the pump filter. I cleaned the pump case. Pump filter is screwed in snugly (hard stop). Gaskets on the (new) pump filter and the (old) pump case look perfect, clean and smooth. My next step is to replace the pump case but I am gloomy about the prospects of that fixing the problem. Sure would appreciate some advice. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    Maybe it has a hair line crack in the body part?

    Jeff, thanks for taking time to share your thoughts. I replaced the part (pump housing) and that fixed the leak! Can't see any cracks in the old housing but I did notice that the pump filter feels a lot more snug when it screws in. With the old housing, the pump filter screwed in easily until it hit a hard stop. So, for whatever reason I guess it wasn't making a good seal.
