You have asked a number of questions. How old is the Washer?
Based on your questions, it may be time to replace. No I am not a
GE Rep. Parts can be ordered online. Google Appliance parts. They may be able to help with "how to's". If newer machine, still warranty? If so check with GE. Otherwise, if the tub isn't being over filled and spin out doesn't send water outside the outer tub which could explain the dripping. Verify gasket leak by leaving water in tub and measure height of water very carefully let stand several days and remeasure.
Remove top should be springs on the front. Push in, to release, tip-up top. Tub must be removed. Remove the agitator by removing the top plastic, should reveal top nut holding down the agitator. You will see a number of nuts holding the agitator tower to reveal gasket. There may be rusting and pin holes causing the leak. I would check this before attempting gasket. I had a similar issue, used JB Weld epoxy about 5 year ago, still not leaking. Possibly the agitator tower has a seal leaking at top. If so that is in transmission and should be replaced as well as the bottom gasket. It may be $200 part.
Due to all the trouble, I replaced it to prevent future failure. You may find a lightly used replacement washer for about that price.

SOURCE: Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer

most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.

SOURCE: Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

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

Check the big rubber seal around the door for any holes or tears. Had the same problem, my husband had a screw in his pocket that torn a hole in the gasket.

Door gasket leaking


My GE washer model wcvh6400j0ww was leaking too. The repair person thought the same thing the gasket. It turned out to be the water in-let pipe (WH41X10118 and you will need seal WH41X10119) and not the gasket. He ordered the gasket and took machine apart to replace and found cracked pipe. Take your machines front off and make sure it is the gasket leaking. Good Luck,

The water from the door of my GE Profile fridge doesnt work consistently. Sometimes it does and sometimes is does not provide water. It has started dripping inside the freezer leaving icicles.What to do???


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.
You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.
