This machine needs to be tilted back and looked at from underneath for the leak, if it is the pump, all you have to do is lift up on a clip on the pump and slide off.

Every time we wash there is water leaking, not sure were the water is coming from. i have checked the hose.


Hi.

Check that the leak is not coming from inlet valve itself. If the leak is from underneath the washer check drain pump hoses. You may need to disassemble the washer pulling up the top panel and accessing the drain pump at the bottom to find the leak.

My ge front load washer has a substantial leak when it is running. it is leaking from the bottom of the unit. It is not the drain hose or a clog in the drain. But it leaks like crazy PLEASE HELP


Check the door gasket for rips. Also there is a gasket between the two halves of the the outer drum, check that for leaks. Look at the pump housing and the hose that connects the pump to the drum for leaks.

Leaks water out of bottom


hi friend,
1washingmachine2_thumb.jpg
Evidently you have reason to believe your washer is leaking. Probably there is water on the floor near the machine. Fine, then the first thing is some detective work. with an absorbent hand towel begin to inspect the areas where water enter or leave the washer. Those places are: 1. the hot and cold water inlet hoses located in the back and top of the machine and 2. the washer drain line, located in the back and bottom of the machine.
  • Step 2 One at a time, dry both ends of the hot and cold water hoses. watch for water to bead up. Water may be leaking from more than one place so don't stop with the first leak you find. Inspect all four possible connections and the hose itself. If there is a leak at a hose connection it's an easy fix. shut off the water supply of the leaking hose, unscrew the hose where it leaks and wrap Teflon tape clockwise around the threaded or male part of the connection. inspect the flat rubber washer in the female part of the connection. replace if it seems very worn. re-tighten the connection, dry and turn the water back on. check for the leak to return. If the leak in somewhere on the hose itself you will need to buy a new hose. Hot and cold water hoses are marked.
  • Step 3washingmachine3_thumb.jpg Next we need to check the hose where water drains from the washer. It comes from the washer near the floor level and usually inserts a male into the female of the washer hole. It then moves to the drain leaving the house. Again, dry the entire hose. Then you will have to run the washer. Use flashlight and inspection mirror to help you look for a leak during the draining process. If it leaks at the connection to the washer try reinserting and tightening the retaining screws. There usually are no threads to wrap. If that doesn't fix the leak or if you find a leak in the hose itself you will need to replace it.
  • Step 4 If you still have a leak under the washer it is probably in the drain hose between the drain pump and the outside hose or the short hose between the tub and the drain pump. This may be getting out of your level of competence. But if you want to be a Renaissance Man, give it a try.
    Unplug the machine. Now you need access to the bottom of the machine. depending on your brand you may be able to 1)remove the front by inserting a painters scraper and prying the spring snaps up, 2)remove the back by taking out screws and the rear plate or 3)you may have to go in through the bottom. With help tip it over on it's side. of course the machine will need to be empty of clothes and water as it's heavy enough already.
  • Step 5 However you access the inside bottom of the machine you will see a rubber hose coming down from the tub to a small electric drain pump then a plastic line will leave the pump and go to the back of the machine where it will meet up with the drain line you inspected in step 2. With your inspection mirror and flashlight look for water to indicate a leak. These lines are often held on by metal springs and can be moved or adjusted with open jaw pliers. If you find one of these hoses damaged take it off and bring it with you to your appliance store for a replacement.

    • take digital photos before you remove any part. if you get confused you can use it as reference
    • don't work on the inside of the washer with it plugged in.

    Leaking wash machine


    Depending on where exactly the leak is coming from, it could be a drain hose, drain pump, or tub seal. If this is a top-loader, here's how you can tell:

    1. If the leak is coming from the BACK area under the washer, this can be caused by a leaking fill hose, dispenser hose, drain hose, or fill valve.
    2. If the leak is coming from UNDER the center area of the washer, this could be your tub seal, a crack in the tub, or an air dome hose leak. NOTE: If the air dome hose is leaking, the washer will fill continuously and not turn off.
    3. If the leak appears to be coming from the FRONT under the washer, this could be your drain pump, or drain hoses.

    Posting a model number, could assist with determining how your washer is configured. I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking as this is the most common cause, but I want to be sure.

    It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

    During fill only
    During drain and spin only
    All the time

    During fill only
    If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

    Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


    The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


    Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



    During drain and spin only
    A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


    All the time
    If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

    Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


    Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


    Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


    Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

    Washer leaking


    There are several things that will leak under a GE washer. The the usual suspects are drain hose connections, or hoses that have cracks or holes. I would inspect the hoses first as this would be the easiest fix. The other thing that can causes problems is the wash tub seal on the bottom of the tub. If the spanner nut (under the agitator) comes loose, the seal will unseat and the tub will begin to drip (I've had this one happen to me). Another cause can be the wash tub itself (I've also experienced this one). Inspect the wash tub for cracks. The tub can develop stress cracks and begin to leak. Especially if this is a washer that was involved in a move. To access the inside of the machine, the front should come off by pushing under the front lip of the machine with a putty knife. There are metal clips that hold the front to the top. Look in the crack with a flashlight to locate them. Push in with a putty knife to release and the front should just come off. I hope this helps you.
