GE model WSXH208F1WW leaks from gap between bottom of door & gasket. Door drags on bottom when you close it. If you push in on bottom of door, it makes contact with seal & stops leaking.

It may be the hinge. Some models can reverse the door swing. Check your manual. If you are able, switch the swing of the door. this may help with the miss aligned door. Good luck!

I've got a ge front load model wbvh5200j3ww. Start wash cycle door locks drum turns one direction then the other then door unlocks. Nothing else happens

Sounds like you have a bad board and needs to be replaced.
Is this washer under warranty and if not did you take out an extended warranty?

Hi Jennifer,
Here is a link to the USER'S MANUAL for that model of washer:

Just click on the underlined text above to view an electronic copy of the manual.
On page 8 of that manual you will see instructions related to the LOCK feature on your washer.
It says that to LOCK or UNLOCK the washer, just hold down the DELAY START button for 3 seconds. The lock icon on the display should then disappear.
If that does not work for your model, then try holding down the SIGNAL button for 3 seconds.
One of these two procedures should solve your problem.
Hope that helps.
Take care and thank you for using FIXYA.

I had stored my ge frontloader washer and dryers for about 4 months and reinstalled them i turn the washer on and it runs threw its cycle and does not spin so the close are soaked in the washer the model...

I would remove the back and investigate for mouse/rat damage. If you had them in storage a rodent may have made himself a home. They like to chew thru wires and plastic components. Or a wire connection may have come loose when you moved them into storage or back from storage.

The door on my dryer and washer open the wrong way

On these model you can only reverse the door swing on the dryer but not the washer.
Alternatively, you can switch places with the washer and dryer provided the washer fill and drain hoses are long enough and there is enough room without obstructing the dryer exhaust vent .

If you want to know how to reverse the door swing on the dryer, post your model number and I will try to assist you further.
Good luck!

Suddenly our GE side-by-side fridge door doesn't shut

Check the bottom of the freezer door at the hinge to see how it is suppose to look and work, assuming the freezer door still works right. Then look at the ref. door and compare.

Sounds like something is broken or damaged. Usually there is a white tefflon washer which is beveled to allow the weight of the door to help it close. Check with an appliance parts store, you may be able to buy just the washer or the whole hinge assembly may come in a package.
