Tip the machine back and remove the 2 clips holding on the drain pump. Remove the hoses. Then turn the pump over to where the motor shaft enters it. There will be signs of water leaking out of the pump. Your local parts store will have the pump instock.

My GE washer leaks water during spin cycle only, seemingly from bottom of valve(?) where water hoses hook up, hoses look to be in good shape, only a year or so old.


If it is leaking at where the drain hose comes out of the wash machine, make sure the plastic spider clamp is seated securely in the groove on the drain hose. If that's not it, then, yes, you'll need to open up your washer to gain access to the inside of it. I don't know which model GE wash machine you have, but most of the GE top loaders can be opened by following the instructions in this youtube video:



Good luck!

First check is the standpipe drain. The hose that comes from washer should not be inserted more than 4". More than that can cause a syphoning situation that can cause leaks from beneath. If that seems okay you will have to see where water is coming from by observing the machine in action with back or bottom service panel removed (if it has one.)

Washer leaks out the bottom in rear of machine


Thank you for using FixYa. Does water leak out of the machine from the beggining of the cycle to the end? If it only leaks when spinning or Pumping out water and water comes from the rear bottom of the machine? This is where the drain pump is located and I would say that the leak is coming from there---either a perished hose or a loose retaining clip.

When driaining out water comes out


Where does the water come out from? From under machine or where the drain hose hooks to the drain. If it is coming out the drain where the hose hooks the drain is most likely stopped up. If coming from underneath could be a hose or the pump leaking. I have seen something like a screw get caught and wear a hole in the tub. Check around the bottom of the tub if there is water leaking around the bottom of the tub could be the tub seal is bad. Hope this helps.

I have to drain my washing machine through a front hole drain opening in the bottom corner of machine. Water comes out, it has been left in machine. I drain my machine every six loads. WHY did Bosch design...


you have a blockage some where in the drain hose.most likely in the hose the comes form the bottom of the tub to the pump.you attach a wet dry shop vac to the end of the drain hose and remove the water this way while the vaccum is working look at the hose that comes form the tub to the pump and if it colapses then there is something restricting the water flow.also make sure to check in side the drain pump cover for any thing that is obstructing the pump

WATER IS COMING OUT FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE WASHING MACHINE ONCE THE WASHING HAS STOPPED, IT DOES NOT LEAK DURING CYCLE AND IT SPINS AND DRAINS FINE..


i would inspect both the hoses on the pump
no leak during cycle is explained because water is moving through them to fast to leak when the machine settles it starts to leak

Water coming out from the bottom of washing machine


Have the unit panel taken of to see where the source of the water comes from. It could come from a leak or the water overflows or is not draining. Check for leaks in the valves or hose, as you inspect where the water comes from. To check if it is not draining see after wash if the water drains while the panel is taken off. IT could be caused by the water level sensor (usually a floating device on the tray) may have been dislocated or needs replacement or a faulty water pump.

There is a leak at the bottom of the washing machine. Water is coming out the bottom front and bottom left.


The leak is from the drain hoses or the fill pipes.

to fix of your own.

There is water draining from underneath the machine?


I have the same unit, I had to replace my drain pump and clean the entire machine out. THis unit has many design flaws however once they are corrected with new parts it is a good machine.
