Question about Washing Machines
My GE frontloading washer started leaking water from the bottom of the door. Help!
With only a limited amount of information, I would guess your door seal may be worn....but how can you check it? Take a reqular piece of paper (8.5x11) and cut a strip 1x11. Open the door and while holding onto the paper strip, put the strip in the TOP of the door and shut it to see how the seal 'feels' when you try to pull the paper out. It should be very hard, if not impossible to pull the strip of paper out. Now, do the same thing with the bottom of the door. Does it appear to be much easier? Without knowing the age of the machine, I might question the door seal. You might also want to check to see if the door might not be bent just a bit. Do this by placeing a long level vertically along the front facing with the door open, then check the door for level. It may be as simple as bending the top of the door out while you bend the lower part in.
