Re: washer continues to leak fresh water into washer tub
You water valve is not closing good you could have a bad valve the valve is not closing properly the easiest thing to do is replace the water valve remove the top off the washer the schematic is the taped to the inside the cabnet or remove the bottom cover and it will be taped to the inside cabnet there. I would get a new valve though. Dissconect the power and turn off the water. remove the top by tacking out the 3 1/4" screws from the back and sliding the top to the rear and lifting off. Disconect to hot and cold water fill hoses from the machine, remove the mounting screws from the valve remove the valveinstall new valve and put mounting screw back in then remove wires from old valve one at a time and place on new valve in the proper position. reconect hot and cold fill hoses be shure to hook the up to the right side reconct power and turn the water on and put the top back on you machine should be back in good working order now .

Do you now where the leak is coming from? You may have to remove the outside sheet metal to observe the motor and tub. More than likely, the leak may be caused by a faulty pump or a seal in the pump.
If the machine overfills, you can get water on the floor as well, but you would notice that the machine appears too full.
The leaky bleach dispenser probably just needs to be removed, inspected and thoroughly cleaned. Water gets pumped thru it and any clog or problem with the pathway the water follows can cause overflow or a leak. BUT deal with the water problem first, that's the most important. A leaky pump will only get worse.
Also check the hose connections on the back of the washer. Old and cracked rubber washers can allow water to leak.
That is a leaky water supply valve. They are not very much money and easy to replace. Before you do the rapair place the washer in spin and shut off the water faucets. You can finish the washing for the day. You remove the inlet hoses and these 2 screw that hold it to the frame. You must flip up the controls and remove the case to get to the water valve.
It is a leaky water valve. They develop a leak just like a faucet. To change the valve you need to flip the controls up to access the valve. I have some repair videos which show how to get into the machine: HERE
If I got the issue correct the washing machine is leaking specially from the injectore.
Leaking water from a washing machine usually comes from hoses or
connections. Be sure that water appearing to be a leak isn’t drain
water from a backed-up standpipe. To prevent potential flood damage,
which can occur if washing machine supply hoses burst, Be sure to
install “no-burst” stainless-steel mesh hoses and lever-type shutoff
valves, as shown below. With these, you can easily turn off the levers
for both hot and cold water between wash days.
1) Check the fittings where the hoses connect to the faucets and to the
back of the washing machine. Also look for worn or leaky hoses. Tighten
couplings or hose clamps if needed, or replace the hoses altogether. Be
sure to turn the water off before removing the hoses, and drain them
into a bucket after disconnecting them.
2) Determine whether the machine is oversudsing, which can cause the
machine to overflow. Reduce suds by pouring 1/2 cup white vinegar in 1
quart water into the washer. Then switch to either less detergent or a
3) the machine may have a faulty basket gasket or tub seal and bearing
that must be replaced; in this case, call an appliance repair person.

When a washer is leaking, there are several areas where the liquid could be coming from.
If it only leaks during a spin cycle, it's probably caused by a leaky drain hose
Leaks on a front-load washer can occur around the door seal. This can happen because of a build-up of dirt and soap on the seal itself preventing a proper seal from taking place. Wipe the door seal carefully making sure that the edge of the gasket is clean.
Parts of a plastic bleach dispenser can crack or break off, causing a leak intermittently during the flush process. This is because bleach is a very corrosive chemical. Heavy use of liquid chlorine bleach can pit and rust stainless steel parts..
You'll want to confirm that the fill hoses are connected and properly tightened. Always use new rubber washers when re-installing the hoses. Take care not to over-tighten the connection. Other leaks may be caused by the drain hose being cracked, or by a leaky connection at the water-inlet valve. Too many suds may cause the appearance of a leak when actually it's just a sudsy overflow. Sometimes a drain hose leak occurs at the end of the hose where it attaches to the washer. If the hose is long enough you can cut the leaky end off and re-clamp the hose back on. Usually though, when a hose begins to leak, it is best to just replace the hose.
Many pump leaks happen around the seal on the pulley. Some pumps have a weep hole that lets water drip out when this seal begins to go bad. The solution is to rebuild or replace the pump.
Tub leaks are usually caused by a rotted tub. If this is your problem, consider buying a new washer. Sometimes a constant imbalance can be the culprit. This imbalance can rub a hole in the tub if it consistently runs off-balance. It may be possible to repair the tub with an epoxy kit. Tub replacement isn't usually very economical.
The main tub seal can also leak. This is located where the transmission and the outer tub in the centre. If this seal goes bad, it can be very difficult to replace.
Sometimes the water-inlet valve develops a buildup of mineral deposits and rust. To check this, remove the water-inlet valve and visually inspect the surface.
There is a cool product that is designed to help prevent water damage from a leaky washer. It's called a Washer Floor Tray This tray catches water leaks and prevents floor damage from overflows. This product is a must for upstairs laundries
We have a WDSR2080D GE washer and had the same exact problem. We replaced the water pressure switch ($30) to see if that was the cause. A malfunction in this switch would cause the leaking from the bottom because there would be no way for the washer to "know" that the tub was filled to the appropriate level--causing the tub to overflow. Then we found out that the water pressure switch was not the cause and found that the water pump switch was the problem. A malfunction with this switch would cause water to continue to fill the tub without stopping--which would cause an overflow. Think of it as turning on a faucet without the ability to turn it off. Happily, we are now with a working and non-flooding washer at only a minimal expense. Note that the schematics for your washer are not in the manual. They are inside the control panel, which means you have to take the front of the washer off as well as the control panel in order to see what's really going on. My guess is that GE would rather consumers not try to fix their own appliances so they put instructions and helpful hints INSIDE the appliance.
