My LG washing machine in the past week started leaking water continuously at a medium speed drip into the drum from just under the water inlet. I don't think it is coming out of the blue inlet, but dripping from behind the white plastic it is attached to. I had just replaced the original rubber water hoses that connect to the supply bibs on the wall with braided steel hoses in the past 10 days, but am not sure how that could be related. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,

Normally when water is dripping into the washer when we are not using it....the fill valve is not 100% shutting closed and some water is weeping in through the valve = new fill valve time.

If you think the water is dripping off from behind that spout and not out of the spout would mean you will need to check the hoses and fitting to make sure they are not split and are secure.

Thanks Jeff! Am I correct that even if the water is dripping from behind that spout and not out of the spout, that the fill valve is still an issue, because with a properly functioning fill value, there should not be water flowing through the valve and into a potentially split hose in order to leak? Again, very much appreciate the advice. Jon

Yes, correct.
