Washing Machine - Detergent Drawer Leaks
Five months before, I purchased a new front load washing machine - LG model wm2010c. This machine is designed for HE (high efficiency) detergent.
Due to lack of my knowledge I was using the regular laundry detergent powder until last week since I bought. (I was using non-HE detergent by mistake and not to save money).
Usage of this regular detergent powder came out as a problem now. Last week, during the wash cycle few gallons of water came out of the detergent drawer. It was too late by the time I realized and it made lot of mess in my laundry room.
I went thru this LG Knowledge Base (http://lgknowledgebase.com/kb/index.php?View=entry&EntryID=6283)
And it suggests removing the tray and pieces and cleaning them thoroughly. I did follow their advice and tried this time with HE detergent liquid. This time I was alert and could stop the machine as soon as I could see the first signs of water leaks. So, it means the problem build-up during the last 5 months is not fixed by cleaning the tray.
Now, past is past, let me know how to fix this problem. More precisely, let me know how to fix the new HE washer that was used with non-HE detergent for 5 months.
When I googled I see lot of people asking question before using them not like me asking after the fact :(
Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
