Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
My washer leaks only during the rinse fill cycle. During the first fill it doesn't leak. I opened the bottom panel and during the rinse, I saw water pouring out of the left hand side of the tub (just below the where the water pours into the tub). Any suggestions?
Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!
The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.

Had the same problem and did 2 things to fix. Remove the bottom panel on the washer(3 screws on bottom front). Just to the right of the center is a white plug that you can unscrew. Before you unscrew, get an 8x8 cake pan underneath to catch the water that comes out(bigger if there is water stuck in your washer). Unscrew cap and take out filter. My filter had pocket change, bandaids, tape, hairpins etc in it(kids do their own laundry and aren't vigilant about checking pockets). Screw filter back in and put panel back on.
Also, lint was drying on washer tub viewing glass where gasket hit it. Gasket wasn't making a good seal there and thats where water leaked out. Clean the dried lint off. No more leaking for me.

My model is WCVH6260.
We also realized that the last time it worked right a shirt was totally destroyed in the machine. At the time we did not realize it. I think it had to have some got hooked on the incoming water spout and was twisted over and over again until it was shredded. i think it had to have somehow broken the incoming water spout to the tub.
I have no idea how to get to it. My warranty is up and I don't have an active extended warranty. I am somewhat mechanically inclined and can follow directions but I need some guidance as to how things come apart and where to start.
