Secondhand ge spacemaker WSLP1100D0WW leaks

Connected both input hoses and drain, when it begins to fill the water comes right out the back below the drain hose where there is a large opening below it. Am I missing something? Opened the back and no leaks, just out the opening! Does it need a plug or something?

    No leaks: I checked all the hoses. It looks like the tub drain hose goes directly to this one opening and the port to the drain hose is above that. As soon as the tub starts filling, I can see the water begin pouring into this plastic-lined port, as I have it pulled away from the wall and now sitting sideways.

    I meant, pulled the entire washer away from the wall.

    Just viewed a vid of the 'port'. It looks like the inside of one of those travel mugs with the lid off, then laid flat with the mouth pointed out and attached to the back, including partial threads.

    The inlet from the tub comes in from the left as you view it, and when water is poured down the outled hose, you can see it pour from the top where the hose leads in and then dribbles straight out the port.

    Looks more and more like some manner of large plug should be there, but none of the replacment-parts outlets mention anything belonging there.

    Found the problem. Someone had removed the Pump Filter Cap (for the Discharge Pump) and not replaced it. Sears did not show on their diagrams that this was separate from the Discharge Pump itself, but an online parts provider had a more detailed drawing. No more leak.

SOURCE: GE Front Load Washer

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.

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked? Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker
thanks.

GE gtwn5050mows water spitting while filling


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.

Hi, my GE Spacemaker WSLP1100D0WW Top Load Washer is leaking from the bottom during the drain/spin .. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks


I've just had this same problem and successfully fixed such problem. I had to set the washer on blocks and crawl underneath while the wife was turning the washer on spin cycle for a few seconds. After following the leak I discovered the drain pump assembly was cracked. Some epoxy and a day of curing / drying cut the leak out like a charm. I also went ahead and ordered a new drain motor while I was at it and installed.Good luck!Davejr021@yahoo. Com

GE GSLS1100 Spacemaker won't spin or drain. Washes fine then makes a rattleling noise during spincycle.


When I first started using my washer when I hooked up the water it would fill the hose and then stop until I started the machine. Now when I hook up the washer to the faucet water starts to fill the machine before I close the lid and before I start the washing process....? The last time I used the machine it didnt drain and I had a flood, is there a problem with it now???

My ge potscrubber 650 is leaking onto the floor in front of the dishwasher. What is the likely problem?


Check you filter and screen .Check whether you need an replacement for them.


If you dishwasher has foam coming out from under the door, then the problem is that dish soap somehow ended up in the dishwasher or excessive rinse aid . It is not recommended to prewash the dishes before loading them into the dishwasher as only a small amount of dish soap can cause the sudsing that you experienced. Only detergent specifically designed for automatic dishwashers such as Electrasol®, Cascade® or Cascade Complete® should be used. Spilling rinse aid while filling the dispenser will cause sudsing also.

To clear the suds from the dishwasher sprinkle several tablespoons of non-dairy coffee creamer over the suds. The fat in the creamer will help break down the bubbles. Wait five minutes for the suds to lessen.

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.

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.

Water input leaking on GE QuietPower II model GSD4030Z04WW


Hi,


Solution:
Sounds like the drain pump has been leaking from the seal where the motor shaft goes into it.

Usually you pop off the 2 metal clips, and pull the drain pump off the motor shaft.
If yours won't come off easily, chances are the motor shaft has expanded from corrosion, seizing the drain pump onto it. You can try prying it off by wedging a screw driver between it and the motor (be careful not to damage the motor). Last resort is to break the drain pump into pieces to remove it.
You will likely have to sand or file the motor shaft back into shape to install the new drain pump.

thanks,

any further question don't hesitate to contact me.

Washer constantly draining after first cycle


For the machine to keep filling it would indicate that there is a siphoning problem. Check the outlet hose is not running along the ground, it has to rise up then loop back down or the water will just run straight down the drain. If the problem only happens after the first pump out it would indicate the end of the outlet hose is lower than the drum or there is no air break around the outlet hose. (The stand pipe should be larger in diameter than the hose from the machine).
