Question about GE WSM2780W Stacked Washer / Dryer

Water leaks/pours out

As soon as you turn on the washer to fill with water, it comes pouring out. Not sure where from, but when I turned it over to look inside it from the bottom, a brass pin fell out - have no idea where it belongs. The leak is not from the hose connectors - could it be the pump? If so, how would you replace it. Thanks.

Its very difficult to answer your question since different machines use different pumps. as for the leak my guess is either a hose has disconnected/torn at the pump or inlet water valve.

Step 1: Remove the front panel of the wash basin
Step 2: See if the clear tube in the left hand side of the basin is disconnected - this will take all of the over-fill water and pour right onto the floor. This happens if the wash cycle becomes too aggressive.
Step 3. Reconnect the clear hose and use a BINDER CLIP (same as you'd use on a stack of papers) to secure the hose and keep this from happening again.

Reach out to me if this doesn't resolve your problem.
Thanks, Chringram

Aqualisa aquastream - when I turn it on the water pours down the wall. When turned off no trickle or leaks.

Surely something is leaking. I am attaching a diagram of the parts inside the unit for your reference. See if you can access the parts to find out which one is leaking and replace the broken part.

Bunn pour omatic commercial coffee maker will not brew and it leaks

VPR is a pour over "Volume Displacement" brewer. Required to completely fill the inner tank and heat prior to using brewer. BEFORE plugging in unit, water must be poured into upper tray and with brew funnel and empty pot in place. Keep pouring water into top fill tray until water drips out of brew funnel. Plug in VPR and allow it 15-20 mins to heat up. leave the pot as there may be additional water dripping. Remove power if there is any water spilling out from other places like the top pan cover or bottom of machine. With the initial heating done, take a full pot of water and slowly pour into the top filling tray. HOT steaming water should come out of the brew funnel to fill the (empty) pot. Prep is done and the machine can be used to brew a pot after 10-15mins of reheat time.
*** the machine you have needs to be checked for leaks in areas mentioned above. Water should only come out of brew funnel (if not present then the brew head or if that is missing then the brew pipe. All will need to be replaced prior to brewing.) Leaking under machine is an indication of leak(s) in pour tray,tank,tank cover, gasket, probe gasket. This machine like any used equipment should be checked out by qualified tech prior to use. Be aware that coffee vendors sometimes rent or loan brewers to customers.

The drum seal is bad. The seal allows the center to come up through the tub and the tub to rotate around it, It usually has a rubber membrane that flexes so the tub can rock around. The rubber tears and the water runs right out. If you can, disassemble the washer and change the seal, otherwise the washer is toast. Sorry! You can verify this by pouring water in from a bucket. If this water doesn't run through then it is the hose from the fill valve to the water outlet under the lid.

Water pours out from washer underneath

The most common leak for those washers is from the drain pump a really easy and inexpensive repair. It is located underneath toward the front. To diagnose turn on water to tub fill 1/4 the way, pull out machine about 2 feet, tilt backward,you can use a mirror, I just poke my head under. is should be clearly evident where the leak is. The tools to change the pump it requires a screwdriver and pliers. There are two clips and to hose clamps,remove and replace in reverse order.

Washer tub won't fill up with water

Sounds like you may have a siphoning problem. Have you checked the drain line by pulling it up out of the standpipe while the washer was filling? You may have a vacuum causing the water to constantly siphon. The following link explains this:

Having the drain hose high enough may not be the problem. You could very well have the hose stuffed in the standpipe too tight, or placed in the pipe too far. Please doublecheck and let me know if you need further assistance.

In addtion, please post the make and model number of your washer for better advice.

Washing machine wont fill

hmmm...wool requires cold water...I'm guessing that first the hot water and now the cold water solenoid valves have become clogged with sediment. test by turning off water. then loosen the hose connection to each inlet in back of washer. then slowly open water valves and let water pour into wash tub if hose will reach, otherwise pour into a bucket. if water comes out of hose, then look for metal screens at hose connections to washer and clean those. if still no water through solenoids (after re-connecting water hoses) then may need to disassemble solenoids and clean those too.
