    Default WM3360HVCA LG front loading washer leaking from the air vent.

    Model Number: WM3360HVCA
    Brand: LG
    Age: 1-5 years

    Hey guys, I have the old leaking from the air vent issue. Ive cleaned filters, sucked out the drain tube, did the tub clean cycle 5 times (3 in a row per LG and then 2 in a row about a week later) and the dang thing is still spitting water. Weve reduced the amount of soap drastically because we have very soft water. My question is, could there be a chance that the evacuation pump is going bad causing the water to leak out the air vent?

    Hi,

    We need the model number first. The model number tag should be inside the door.

    Thanks,

    I located another thread about this same problem: WM3470HWA Leaky LG Washer

    Look at what wildimaginations said in post #3. He's pretty good with these LG models.

    Your model uses the exact same Float Assembly.
