My name is Huuum,

I'm not sure if you search more you will, find a connection is loose, a hose cracked or a part leaking and needs replacement! As you surmised.
Or if you do not do it your self, then service will find the same!

Let me know the location of the leak when you locate it!
Cheers, and Bless You!
Please remember to leave a rating when you finish!
Thank You.Huuum

My GE topload washing machine is leaking

Check the hose that connects to the bottom of the tub to the drain hose. Make sure that hose is securely fastened.

The washing machine is leaking all the time?

The possibilities for this problem are mentioned as follows:-- Check the water filling hoses which lets the water inside the washing machine while filling. There are two fill for cold water filling or one for hot water filling.if this hoses are worn out or cracked the washer will both the hoses needs to be checked and replaced. But if the hoses are checked OK then other possibility is the tub seals on the tub.The seal can be seen between the transmission assembly and outer tub assembly of the washing machine. If the tub seal is got loose or worn out it needs to be checked and replaced. But if the tub seals are proper and not worn out then other possibility to check out is the drain pump.Check if the pump is got cracked ,loose or worn case or cracked or worn out it needs replacement but if its loose you can just refit it properly to stop the leaking.But if the pump is not leaking and it looks properly fit then other possibility to check is the outer tub assembly.its made up of plastic and this plastic gets cracked after certain period of time.or if any pointed object/material if remain in the clothes while washing .then due to that pointed object there becomes a hole in the plastic outer tub assembly .This all the possibilities.that has to be checked. This will help.Thanks.

I believe it is the water pump but, I would like to confirm. When the washer is filling up it leaks out from the bottom.

If you are sure it's leaking during the fill cycle, check the hose that goes from the fill valve (the plastic part that the washing machine hot and cold hoses hook up to) to the top of the tub. From the fill valve follow the hose that goes toward the top of the tub and look for loose clamps or fittings. Along the way, there is an item called an 'air gap' that prevents water from siphoning back into the water supply. Look for cracks in this component. Finally, check the fill spout for proper alignment and mounting or cracks.

Water is leaking from the bottom of the machine and will not fill up


Your water leak can come from 3 areas:

1) drain hose on back of washer is coming off / splitting / getting loose

2) water pump is leaking (cracked?) or has a gasket that has deteriorated.

3) hose between tub and water pump has come off / split / became loose.

Since your washer isn't able to hold water, it makes it easy to remove the clothes, and lean the washer forward to see what is going on. Most washers' mechanicals can be acessed from either the bottom, or from the back via access panel. The water leaks are generally a pretty easy repair.

Leak when water is filling up with water

First thing to check is the discharge pump inlet hose from underneath the tub to the pump. This frequently vibrates loose enough to allow water to leak out as tub water level increases. Also, this hose may have rubbed against something for some time and developed a hole at the rub point, resulting in a leak. If you are good with a tire patch, you might be able to seal the hole and avoid the cost of a new hose. Make sure the hose is insulated from or pulled away from the rub point to avoid a recurrence of the leak later.

The next most frequent leak point is at the mixing valve at the water inlet where the hot and cold water is channeled into the tub fill. Loose connections or a cracked valve housing will leak water.

Leaking from bottom as soon as washer fills

I would request you to pull the washer out and tip it back so he can check the hose connections to the water drain pump in the bottom of the washer. That pump should have two hose connections. In older machines, it is entirely possible that a hose has either come loose or cracked. If the hoses appear fine, check the pump itself for possible cracks. If all looks well, check the hose clamps for tightness.

follow the hose from where it connects into the washer.. take off that panel and pinpoint leak. more than likely a hose is unattached

Hoover washing machine top load, model 550m.5.5kg

water leak from cold hose nothing to do with other problem. tighten hose connection and fit a new hose washer overfilling probably because air chamber blocked. remove lid. you will see a pressurestat somewhere at the top - usually round with anything from 3 to 7 wires and a small tube underneath. follow hose down and it connects to the air chamber. make sure this is free of gung and check hose for splits and has no blockage. to check the pressure stat itself, attach your own hose to the stat and while machine in fill mode, blow down this hose and you should hear a click and water intake will stop
