How to replace seal of ge top load washer


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.

2.The water mixing valve

3.Filling injector ( If your washer uses one )
4.Filling spout


If the washing machine leaks during the wash cycle, check the following:
1.The pump
2.The tub stem & seal
3.Tub to pump hose
4.The drain hose
5.Tub (rusted holes)
6.The drum support bolts


If the washing machine leaks during the spin cycle, check the following:
1.The drain hose
2.The tub cover seal
3.The pump
4.The pump hoses

5.The stem & seal
6.The drum support bolts

My GE Washing machine appears to be leaking from the bottom


It sounds to me , you need the seal and bearing kit.. It is over 300.00 dollar repair, if it is an old washer I would say go get a new one

underneath the agitator is a graphite seal ring and nut that seals the inner tub and the outer tub. a suitable spanner wrench or a 6 inch channel lock plier will remove this locknut. replace the seal.
