Question about GE WWSE5200B Top Load Washer
WHEN THE WASHING MACHINE STARTS TO FILL UP TO START THE WASH CYCLE A LARGE AMOUNT OF WATER SEEM TO COME FLOWING OUT FROM UNDER THE UNIT!IVE CHECKED THE DRAIN HOSE BUT AGAIN ITS ONLY WHEN IT FILLS UP.I JUST MOVE THE UNIT SO WOULD SOMETHING OF HAD COME LOSE FROM INSIDE THE UNIT ?ANY SOLUTIONS PLEASE TELL ME THANK YOU VERY MUCH
If it is only leaking out when it is being filled then.........
Does it start to leak immediately? or does it take a minute or two?
A simple way to narrow down the cause is to fill the tank up using a bucket to fill the tank. If you get no leaking by the time you get an inch or two of water in the bottom of the tank then it's doubtful your problem is the drain or pump.
If however it leaks, then you have a loose or disconnected hose running from the bottom of the tank to the water pump or a damaged water pump.
This will require you to remove the front panel of the machine to check the lines and inspect the pump.
If you find no leak then........................
Does the washer leak on both hot and cold cycles?
Check this by running a hot then cold cycle through the machine, (just enough to start a leak). If it leaks on either cycle then it's after the water supply solenoids. If its just one or the other then it's between the outer supply lines and the a fore mentioned solenoids.
In either case it will require you to lift the top of the unit off. Most washing machines have hinged tops. Just look on the back at the gap where the top meets the back panel. If you see the hinge (one on either side), then you should be able to place a screw driver or wedge in the gap between the top and lower section at the front of the machine, on either side and pop it up.
This will allow you to check the water supply lines coming in from the rear, running into solenoids and finally through nozzles that fill the tank up. Make sure all the clamps are tight and no cracked or split lines.
If there is still nothing apparent then you can try running the washer with the lid parsley opened and attempt to see the leak.
Although the exterior lines connected to the back would leak whether the machine was running or not. Because you moved the machine you should check anyway.
Just make sure that the hose washers are still in place and not damaged.
If this doesn't help please post any results from the test I gave you.

Follow the hose from where it connects into the washer.. take off that panel and pinpoint leak. more than likely a hose is unattached
