If its leaking from the top it is possible that it just needs tightening but it is probably that the tank is failing. but to check out the first possibility turn off the water and drain off the pressure if you do not have 2 valves . one on each line you will have to drain the system. then remove the leaking side. in fact remove both sides apply pipe compound or teflon tape and retighten and reconnect all unions .if that solves the problem good if not its time to replace the tank

If pipes are leaking, then that can be repaired.
If tank is rusted out and water escaping from the tank, then turn off the water plus power to the heater for safety, and then replace water heater.
Rusted water heater can be welded for repair, but remember that hot water is under pressure and tank can rupture any time.
Safest course if to replace heater.

Water seems to be leaking from the top lid of my ge water heater


Make sure any water valves (Cold or Hot) for water heater are not leaking first. Gate valves may leak at the packing nut over time and drip on top of tank. If water is leaking from the top of the water heater itself the tank is corroded and water heater will need to be replaced.
