The door seal or boot is used in all front load LG washers, the rubber boot is used to form a water tight seal between the washer and the door, during the washer cycles.
If you have noticed water leaking from around the door of the washer the rubber boot or seal might have a tear or rip in it. The most common reason for this is from overloading the washing machine with laundry.
Note: Please use the model number on your washer when ordering this part.
Many of the LG door boots may look similar in shape and color but will not fit or function properly on your particular model washer.
