Question about GE Washing Machines

1 Answer

Leaks from the bottom as soon as the water begins to enter.

Can't figure out how to take the top off the machine to look at the tub and see if it's ruptured somewhere. None of the hoses that I can see from the back appear to leak.

Leaks as soon as it begins to fill


Could be several problems first off is bad center tub seal. Possibility of bad pump they are plastic and sometimes develop cracks. Could have hole in hose or possibly crack in water fill valve. Some models have the automatic temperature control function and they have extra hoses and valves for filling to exact temps they could be cracked as well.

Leaking water when washer begins to load water.


Fist place to check is the outlet hose at the back of the machine it will leak as soon as water enters the tub, see if is leaking there, if it is you just have to tighten the clamp . if not there are a few hoses inside of the machine that may need clamps tightend also. The motor is seperated from the water so that wont be leaking. It could also be the electric water inlet valve that is leaking. let me know what you find out !

Washing machine overfills


Grab the tube off the water level switch that comes from the bottom of the tub and blow it out so that the sand in the bottom won't be blocking the operation,pump out the water, secure the tube tightly to the pressure switch and retry.aff8f03.jpg

Washing machine water comming out from bottom


Check the hose that connects from the tub to the water pump. Next time you do a load remove the front panel and set the machine for a "small load" so there won't be alot of water. When the machine begins to agitate shut off the timer and move it to the final spin mode and turn it on. Here is where you want to watch that hose (maybe with a flashlight) as the tub begins to spin and the water is being pumped out, focus on where the hose connects to the drum. Usually as the spin increases the vibration will cause the hose connection to become loose and water will start spitting out. If you don't see any leaks in the hose, check the water pump itself. NOTE: DO NOT PUT YOUR HANDS IN THE MACHINE WHILE IT IS IN OPERATION! JUST LOOK IN AT THE HOSE, DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING AND KEEP YOUR HAND BEHIND YOUR BACK! THE OTHER HAND ON A FLASHLIGHT FROM OUTSIDE THE MACHINE.

GE Top load washer.


Hello rschneeweis
Welcome,

Sounds like a seal or drain hose is leaking or the clamp on a hose has vibrated loose.

Water leaking out the bottom of the machine when washing machine begins agitation cycle. If the machine is turned off the water stops leaking even with the tub full of water.

Let me know if you found it and how you do.

Washer leaks from bottom as soon as it starts filling with water


There are 2 green clips between the top of the unit and the front panel. (you can use a flash light to find them easier). Push on the with a putty knife or small flat head screw driver while lifting on the top. Once the top is open, you will find 2 5/16 screws that hold the front panel on at the top on the right and left hand sides. Once these are removed, you can tilt the front panel forward and see where the water is leaking from.

Leaking


This machine has two removable front panels. At the bottom of the unit are two (2) 10mm bolts. Removing these bolts will give you access to the working parts since this is an inspection plate, The upper panel : There are two (2) 10mm bolts located at the bottom corners. Remove these bolts, pull the bottom of the panel toward you to release the top latches. This will give you full access to see where the water is coming from. I suspect a leaking pump but cannot rule out a bad tub seal.
