Hello rschneeweis
Welcome,

Sounds like a seal or drain hose is leaking or the clamp on a hose has vibrated loose.

Water leaking out the bottom of the machine when washing machine begins agitation cycle. If the machine is turned off the water stops leaking even with the tub full of water.

Let me know if you found it and how you do.

SOURCE: Water from GE Washing Machine is coming from under my washer onto the floor

Hello,
I would be happy to help you through this. The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with meatal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement. I just paid $59.99 for mine. It took me less than 30 minutes total to replace. Feel free to ask more questions. I love this kinda stuff. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

What is the liquid in the top ring of washer


its called "Calcium-Chloride",its a type of salt water mixture put in these rings to dampen "OFF-Balance" loads in the washer,and the reason for this type of mixture is so people that store or operate the machine in below freezing temps do not have a solid off balance chunk of ice that wont balance the machine during operation or break the ring when it freezes

It doesn't self balance and spin out all the water from clothes. the clothes are very wet, especially jeans. And the washer rocks bad during the spin cycle.

I have a Maytag Neptune front loading washer, After a complete wash cycle I hear water sloshing in the machine when I open the door and turn the durm. Is water supposed to be in the machine after the cycle...


Yes. The tan/gray colored inner ring attatched to the inner wash tub actually has a calcium chloride solution in it to aid in balancing the machine out during spin. Clothes go to one side, liquid to the other. It's all good. It is sealed so it cannot leak out or create odors.
Hope this answers your question!

I hear water in the washing machine when move it and think maybe water is building up in the machine. What should I do?


What you are hearing is the liquid inside the balance ring at the top of the wash tub. You could set the machine in the center of your driveway and drain every drop of water from the hoses and pump, yet you would still hear the liquid in the balance ring when the machine (more specifically, the inner tub) is moved. It needs to be there to help balance out of balance wash loads.

You can hear water still in the washer - not inside the tub where you put the clothes but inside the washer machine.


I believe you are referring to a GE top loading washer. GE uses a liquid filled balance ring around the top of the washer to help compensate for off balance load. The sound is perfectly normal.

Spin Shake ...


yes the water is supposed to be there, thats called the balance ring, some machine use cement others water. you say the washer is unbalanced even when empty, is there an indicator or is the machine itself physically off balance. if there is an indicator the off balance swich might have gone bad or you might need to adjust the leveling legs.
