Water large amounts on floor of shut off machine


To sufficiently inspect your washer to determine where to leak may be coming from, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

If there is a huge gush of water coming from the washer as soon as you begin the fill cycle, this is commonly caused by a small air hose on the side of the washer drum that connects to the pressure switch. If this air hose comes loose,the water will pour from the wash tub as it begins to fill. This is an easy fix, if that is the only problem.

Another cause, can be a water inlet valve that is leaking by, or a pressure switch that does not keep the water supply shut off when not in use. This will cause the tub to fill up and spill over. The following link explains how to check for this as well:

Read through the information provided and let me know if you are having problems determining the cause of your problem. Please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to accurately determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

LEAKING FROM BOTTOM


Is it leaking only when it is filling or all the time? If it is only leaking during fill, it could be an air gap device
  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.

  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.

  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
  • If it is leaking all the time it could be the main tub seal. Hope this helped.

    Leaking


    Sheets Or Comforters? This Normally Occurs With An Overload Such As Pillows And Comforters Due To The Large Circumference. Which Simply Means That Anything That Has A Large Area Will Make The Water Come Over The Top Because When The Machine Is Running The Spin Cycle The Large Area Of Fabric Covers The Side Of The Machine. Actually Causing Water To Spin Off The Top Of The Fabric And Over The Sides Of The Washing Machine Bucket Thus Ending Up On The Floor Below.

    GE Top-loader Leaks Water from Vertical Tube Behind Tub on X-Large Loads


    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.

    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.

    Washing machine leaks from bottom


    Open up behind after pluging off the wall. Check the hose that comes from under the tub, likely it is damaged or slipped out. Refit or change if damaged. You need a good pair of pliers; dont forget to insert the grip clips well.
