Question about GE Washing Machines
My machine wouldnt hardly aggitate. I took off the front and there is oil in the bottom as well as water. The water seems to be coming from the bottom center of the tub. The washer is a coin operated GE washer that I bought brand new 9 or 10 years ago.
The oil is leaking out of the agitator gearbox. The water is coming from the seal on the agitator. I think the gears are badly worn..

Testimonial: "Thanks for the response. I found my washer is GE Model WCRD2050D1WC. I'm using this website to identify parts: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/tub-basket-agitator-parts-for-ge-wcrd2050d1wc.html or http://www.appliancepartspros.com/suspension-pump-drive-parts-for-ge-wcrd2050d1wc.html. Which parts have oil? Just the transmission? Thanks!"

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

SOURCE: Washer leaking water from bottom
looks like you have to replace the RUBBER SEAL thats inside the tub at the center post , try this , remove the panel so you can see inside , put the washer to fill w/ water , and watch closely underneath the tub wheres the transmision is connected , and watch for LEAKS . hope this info helps

Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!
The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.

The usual culprit for a washer that will not stop filling is the pressure switch. The switch is located inside the operator console behind the load size, or water level knob (this knob has different names based on the washer model). Before assuming the pressure is defective, however, inspect the pressure switch and ensure the small plastic air hose is still attached to it. It is common for this small air hose to come loose or develop small cracks or breaks. Without the hose installed, the switch cannot detect the appropriate pressure in the wash tub and will not shut off. The result: as washer that continually fills and will overflow. What appears to be a significant problem may only be a loose hose and few minutes of your time. Please inspect the switch, check the entire length of the hose for cracks and make sure the electrical connection(s) are intact and not corroded, then get back to me. I hope this helps you.
PS Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing!

You have to disconnect all wire connectors, inner basket, both pumps & Then unclasp the 4 shock rods then remove the whole inner assembly. Then turn the inner assembLy upside down & every which way until they all fall out. Like shaking quarters out of your piggy bank.
