Water leaking from the bottom of the washer at the rear right corner!

My GE WCVH6260FWW sits on a pedastal. I noticed water leaking from the right rear corner of the washer (Facing the control panel). First noticed after a wash cycle, started another load and it appears the leak continues.

Any ideas??????????

Firstly check that the inflow water pipes connected to the machine are connected correctly, feel around the pipes that touch the machine to see if there is any water. If there is the washers may need replacing on the pipe. Or the pipe may simply have got a bit loose through the machines spinning.

Where is the lint trap specifically

b364bcbf-e570-41a5-b3fd-7fcd381c20d9.jpgThe lint filter is behind the lower panel, under the washer's door. Remove the three Phillips screws and locate the round white "plug" shown above. Be sure to have a bucket or large bowl to catch water, as there's a LOT of water in there. See my above comment posted June 29th.

Washer has a bad smell

I've noticed that washers don't always empty all the water out of them and therefor can get smelly. I'd suggest putting in about a cup of bleach in water and putting in on a short rinse cycle, but then lit it sit for a while. In the future when you are done with a "wash" leave the washer open so that it can dry out. Otherwise you are trapping moisture in ther.

Will not spin. fills up with water but takes a long time to drain. this seems consistent through all modes of operation

The most likely cause of this problem is due to the filter basket being clogged and preventing the water from draining properly. You will need to check the filter basket which is located underneath the washer for obstructions. Don't be surprised if you find lots of change and other foreign objects. To check, remove the bottom panel from the front of the washer with a philips head screwdriver (there are 3 screws). Once you have the panel off, you will find a cap on your right hand side. Don't worry, it's quite easy to spot. Turn the cap counterclockwise to remove. Make sure you have small container on hand as a few pints of water will drain out. Pull the filter basket out and clean. Wipe off the gasket on the filter and receptacle with a clean rag and replace. Thereafter, do this every 6-9 months as a preventative and more often if the problem repeats. You won't find this procedure mentioned anwhere in your owners manual, but it certainly should have been and has been addressed for the newer GE frontloaders. In fact, the new washers have an access panel to make getting to the basket filter easy.

I have a front loading GE wcvh6260fww that will fill with water, but will not agitate or spin out the water...thus, no washing of clothes regardless of cycle selected. The timer counts down and the water...

probably a bad door switch, if you can take the door or top off and find the wires running to the switch take the wires off theswitch and plug them together by wrapping electrical tape around them and then try the washer. If that dont work may be a bad control board

Water is leaking from left rear side of Washer

that is the location of the vent and valves. suspect rubber hose from valve to dispenser is busted. remove top cover to see (2 or 3 torx screws on back) the older units had a bend in the hose that breaks.
