    I have a new GE model WJRE5500G2WW that also leaks from the left rear bottom in large or super settings. It does this sporadically. We have reduced the detergent added considerably and still have the problem. I ran a cycle with no detergent at a "large" setting and had no leaking. A service representative is coming in next Monday.

I just tore apart my washer and discovered it's a design flaw. When you set it to 'super' the water level comes close to the overflow hole on the tub. Clothes and splashing causes water to go in the hole, down a tube, and drip onto the bottom pan of the washer. Mine had considerable rust at that spot, so it seems it's been dripping since day one. I now own a Speed Queen and couldn't be happier.

How do I increase water level?


The water level is controlled by the water level switch. If set to the highest fill level----thats all you get. The government has interfered with manufacturers to try and conserve water so very few of the new machines fill as high as they use to. There use to be a factory set screw on the water level switch for factory adjustments only but if you play with it wrong, you may end up flooding the basement with an over fill problem.

LEAKS ALL THE TIME Is your GE washer leaking all the time, even when not in use? If so the problem is the fill hoses or the valve. Look behind the washer to see if water is coming from the hoses. If not, take the cover off to the control panel. Once off, you should see if the water valve and if there is leakage - it needs replacing (if it is leaking). This is the most popular water valve for GE top-loading washers made after 1995 and the part number is WH13X86 Order Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10. Note that some models have a water valve with more than two coils. In this case, you will need to order the valve by model number at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 Buy Fill Hoses Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10
LEAKS DURING FILL CYCLE Is your GE washer leaking during the fill cycle? If so the problem may be in the valve. Follow instructions above, only this time start the fill cycle before looking at the valve.
If your washer overflows with water during fill cycle your problem is the water level control or the water valve. If you must cut the water off from the house plumbing to stop the water then there is no need for testing, just replace the water valve. First, you need to turn on the washer. The washer should start to fill with water, now cut the washer off and on repeatedly (note to yourself whether the water turned off every time). If it does cut off every time you cut the washer off, then it's most likely in the water level control. If it keeps running after you cut the washer off then, the water valve is bad and needs replacing. (Note that the valve can stick intermittently so it still may be bad if it passed the test) Water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
If the water valve doesn't stick in the first test then you need to check the water level control. First, remove the front of washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front pushing on the clips) then look on the side of the tub and you should see a tube attached to a box. Remove the tube (make sure all the water is out of the tub) look in the tube to see if is stopped up. Often it will stop up near the end. If it is, you can clean it out with a toothpick. Once it's clean, reinstall it and your washer is fixed. If the tube is not stopped up reinstall the tube. Now set the water level control on the lowest setting and start filling the washer with water. If the water stops when the tub is approximately half full (this varies with every model) turn it up to the next level (you may have to reset it). Repeat until the tub is full. If at any the water level gets above the last row of holes in the tub, unplug the washer. If the water stops running when you unplug the washer, replace the water level control. If the water doesn't stop, turn the water off at the wall then replace water valve. Water level contorls and water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 . LEAKS DURING WASH Is your GE washer leaking during wash? If so the problem is the tub seal (seals around the transmission where it goes through the tub), drain hoses (including the tub to pump hose) or the pump. First take the front off the washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front, pushing on the clips) then start the fill cycle. Now start watching until you see a leak. If the leak is coming from the tub seal, the transmission needs to be replaced (note that changing the transmission is expensive and takes special tools, so you may consider replacing the washer). If the leak is coming from the drain hose or the pump you need to replace it. If you don't see it leak at all, your soap may be the problem. To check this fill the washer with water and the amount of soap you normally would use. Then start the washer and watch the tube coming from the left back of the tub (the overflow pipe). If soapsuds come out of the overflow pipe then try cutting down on your soap or switch to another brand. This may fix your problem. These parts can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
LEAKS DURING PUMP OUT Is your GE washer leaking during pump out? If so the first thing you should look at is the drainpipe (to your house plumbing). Fill the washer with water, and then turn it to spin and start it. Now while it's pumping, look at your drainpipe if water backs out (it may not back unless you have soap in the tub), then the problem is in your plumbing. If it doesn't, follow the same steps as above in "leaks during wash." Only this time watch for leaks during pump out as well.

Water leaking from under machine, doesnt do it all the time, but when it does leak it makes a skreatching noise too


This sounds like the transmission making the noise you are talking about. If this is only happening on the highest water level setting and when you have a big load, the tub may be adijating and spinning at the same time causing the water to slosh over the top of the tub.

There's not much I could reccomend that you do if this is the case other than lower the water level setting and load size and/or replace the machine. Don't waste your money investing in a new transmission - buy a new machine instead.

Washing machine does not cut off at the preset capacity.


check to make sure your drain hose is positioned higher than the highest water level in the machine, loop the drain hose up higher than the drain and secure it to keep the water from siphoning out.

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"


sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.

There is a musty oder coming from inside washing machine.


Dump in a gallon of white vinegar, fill with water, highest setting, after it goes through that setting, turn it off and let it set in the washer for about 30 minutes (use hot water).

Then put it on another wash cycle and then go to the rinse and spin. This should remove the order, and you should leave the door open when not in use.

Good Luck
