Water from GE Washing Machine is coming from under my washer onto the floor

I have a GE Washing Maching and when the water is drained from the washing machine it comes out from the bottom and goes all over my floor. Is this from the pump? I am a single woman and don't have the extra money to call a repairman so I am trying to fix it myself. I don't have the model number with me right now.

Hello,
I would be happy to help you through this. The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with meatal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement. I just paid $59.99 for mine. It took me less than 30 minutes total to replace. Feel free to ask more questions. I love this kinda stuff. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

My GE washing maching runs water into it, but the water flows right back out. How to keep the water in?


Make sure that your drain hose is at least 20 inches from the base of the machine and is not inserted into your drain too far... Normal is to insert about 6 inches... Inserting your hose too far causes a syphoning action.

I have a GE Model WJRE5500g0WW washing machine. It is two years old, purchased new. After the clothes had spun dry, water was observed on floor. Drain tube checked and okay, not plugged up. Before I open...


Normally water on the floor can be from a few places. Mostly a faulty drain pump: possibly a tear in one of the pipes: rust in the drum: possibly water in the centre which comes from the bearings.(if the machine makes a racket when spinning, then i would look at the spin bearing collum). even concider drain pipe at outlet not running out onto floor. Either tilt washer back about 45 deg. to look underneath or possibly remove panel to allow a visual of the motor and components. See if you can pick up any indecationof water having run down from a particular spot. If so rectify. Hope it helped. .Ge washers not farmiliar to me but most problems are similar.

GE top load washer leaks on floor


Check your hoses mostly the small hose going from the side of the tub to the water switch these come off a lot. you need to look and see if the seal is leaking from the center of the tub you do this by putting water in the tub and just looking around the bottom of the tub and transmission
