Leaks on this model washer can commonly be determined by the following:

1. If the leak is coming from the from underneath the front center of the washer, it's usually caused by a leaking water pump. If the pump leaks, it is not serviceable and must be replaced. The following link explains how:

2. If the leak is coming from the central area under the wash tub, the tub seal may be leaking. You should see tell-tale signs of water tracks on the gearcase (transmission) if this is the case. Also inspect the wash tub for cracks. Since the outer tub is usually made of plastic, it can crack and develop leaks. This repair involves removing the tub. It's not difficult, but can be extensive. We'll cross that bridge if the time comes - post back and let me know and I can give you advice on how to repair and the parts you may need.

3. If the leak is coming from the right-hand side of the wash tub, consider the air dome. This is a small dome located on the lower side of the wash tub with a small air hose attached. This is how the pressure switch is able to determine the pressure change as the tub fills and turn the water off when full. This air hose can come loose, causing water to pour out while filling (THIS IS NOT A SMALL LEAK). If the air dome is till intact with no cracks the air hose can simply be reattached. If the air dome is damaged, the tub will require replacement.

4. If the leak is coming from the rear of the washer, you will need to check your water inlet valve and associated dispenser hoses. The following link explains how to access the valve and replace (if required):

Of course, your drain hoses are always suspect. You mentioned those hoses weren't leaking. However, if you have not removed the washer case and inspected them closely, you may want to double check them.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you locate your problem.

My radiator hose popped off today iput it on and my car still over heats

You may have an air pocket with no fluid. This would cause over heating. If you have a recovery tank, it is better to add fluid thru there and not directly in radiator neck.

Water in car

I suggest taking a garden hose and have someone spray your car while you are inside finding the leek stop the leek first .Take a house fan and an extention cord out to car, let fan blow on wet area until dry. another idea is to use a hair dryer. If you dont stop leek you will have a mold problem in no time. If this was helpful please leave good feedback.

is it water or coolant? aside from the upper and lower radiator hoses the only other hose carrying coolant is the hearter hose that goes to the heater core.inside the firewall. if it is leaking at the heater core. or the core itself is leaking this is a major job. as the heater core must be removed and tested.

My GE Refrigerator leeks water underneath when it

There is a pan under the the refrigerator that is to catch the water and let it evaporate from the heat from the compressor. The pan may have a hole in it or the little hose is not draining the water into the pan. This should be an easy fix.
Best of luck I hope this helps you:)

Have you checked the clamp on the drain hose? It may need tightening. All washers keep a small reserve of water in the bottom of the basket tank. If your drain hose hook is too high from the top of the washer, that much more water will be held below.
