Harrison then bagged his third goal of the match after latching onto Raphinha's delicate through ball.
The Englishman calmly dinked the ball over the on-rushing Lukas Fabianski to complete his hat-trick.
Leeds thought they had scored their fourth when Mateusz Klich found the back of the net, but his goal was ruled out following a VAR review.
The hosts also had a goal scratched off, with Bowen missing a gilt-edged chance in stoppage time.
The victory moves Leeds above Everton to 15th place, with 22 points on the board.
As for the Hammers, they remain in fourth place - but have played two games more than fifth-placed Arsenal.
