Question about GE Washing Machines
When my washer fills with water, all of the water leaks out the bottom. Prior to this problem, I'd noticed a screw that was wedged into the small holes at the bottom of the basket, so I yanked the screw out. I think the screw fell out of my husband's pants pockets during the last wash. Is it possible that the screw punctured a hole somehow, which is causing all of the water to leak out?!
The screw in the washer tub, is not a factor in this. I'm not sure what brand of machine you have, but several machines have a fill hose that connects to the outer tub of the machine. Sometimes when a machine gets loaded heavily, during the spin cycle items in the machine can actually knock the fill hose right out of the tub. Then when the machine trys to fill the next time, all the water runs down the outside of the tub and leaks out of the bottom of the machine.
Repair is to open up the machine. You'll need to remove the top cover and that will give you access to the hose/tub connection. It may be as simple as reinserting the hose back into the drum or you may need to replace it if it got too damaged and won't stay in the hole correctly.
If you need specific how to's on opening up the machine, get back to us with the make and model info and we'll be happy to help you open that washer up!
