Question about GE Washing Machines
I suspect the tub gasket is the problem. How do I fix it?
SOURCE: Water leaking
If it's the hose your talking about, the white tube connected to your tub is called and "air dome" hose. It connects to your pressure switch to shut off your fill valve when selecting load sizes. The hose should connect to a fitting somewhere near the base of the wash tub. If it is leaking, generally mildew inside this tube can cause it slip off it's fitting or lose it's seal. Also the hose can stretch out of shape over time and lose its seal. If you have enough slack in the house, you can pull the hose off the fitting and cut about half an inch off the end, clean the fitting, and reattach. This should reseal it. If the hose itself is leaking, you should replace the entire length of house from the tub to the pressure switch. You can find plastic hose of this type at any hardware store. I hope this helps.

it sounds like the basket is not locked when it is agitating, if so the water will climb the wall during the wash cycle and leak out of the overflow (which is the plastic tube you described). if this is the case, it is a transmission brake problem. it can be fixed by a professional, but you might want to look into buying a new machine.

Had the same problem and did 2 things to fix. Remove the bottom panel on the washer(3 screws on bottom front). Just to the right of the center is a white plug that you can unscrew. Before you unscrew, get an 8x8 cake pan underneath to catch the water that comes out(bigger if there is water stuck in your washer). Unscrew cap and take out filter. My filter had pocket change, bandaids, tape, hairpins etc in it(kids do their own laundry and aren't vigilant about checking pockets). Screw filter back in and put panel back on.
Also, lint was drying on washer tub viewing glass where gasket hit it. Gasket wasn't making a good seal there and thats where water leaked out. Clean the dried lint off. No more leaking for me.
