I have a GE Washer (model # WWA5669MAL). The pump

I have a GE Washer (model # WWA5669MAL). The pump assembly is squirting water from a hole on the assembly that is located below where the pipe coming from the tub bottom and the drain pipe enters the pump assembly. Should something be there to plug the whole??.

    That is supposed to be a weep hole. If water is pouring out that is a sure sign of a failed tired pump

That is supposed to be weep hole. If water is pouring out then that is a sure sign of a worn out old school GE pump. The good news it that is an easy pump to replace. the hardest part is replacing the drive boot from pump to motor. Nothing to it I have a GE Washer (model # WWA5669MAL).  The pump - 0895584.gif

My GE Spacemaker wslp1100 top loader is draining very slow causing error code dr. I took black drainage hose off and it seems to be clean. Filters are clean inside washer. I want to know if a coin could be...

You don't reveal full model number. It's not likely that a coin is blocking the water. The pump (part of the motor assembly) may be partially blocked inside or a garment (sock, u-shirt, etc.) may be blocking the water inlet to the pump. It's too early to remove the agitator.

I have a g.e. washer model wjsr2080t6ww and it is leaking water from underneath

There are 4 common possiblities. 1. Hose from tub to pump has a hole in it
2. Water pump is leaking
3. tub seal has gone bad
4. Water fill manifold has a hole in it

1,2,4 is an easy fix
3 requires removal of the inner tub (not an easy job)

Whwn the washer is running. Getting a leak on the floor. Seems to get worse every time I wash.

need to remove front panel on washer usually 2 clips at top of unit between front panel and top panel approx 2 inches over and one on each side..if you stick a slim screwdriver in you can gently push and the clips will release allowing you to remove front cover.. once in there check the side of tub there is a small hose runs to side of tub assembly this is a pressure switch hose make sure it is connected and no holes in it.. if that is ok then check hoses going to tub and at the drain pump assembly.. may require you to start washer to check connections ... if no obvious leaks yet then fill washer and run through a spin cycle check pump assembly they are notorious for cracking or leaking ... hopefully you can find culprit this way... once you find source of water you can order parts from then hit the parts direct link up top it will go to a page you can enter your model number and find a parts diagram and price ...good luck to you

Winshield washer does not work. Makes a noise but does not pump washer fluid.

If pump makes noise we know it has power, first unplug the hose closest to the washer pump, if water squirts out you have a good pump, then follow the lines to the nozzles where they squirt out if all hoses are OK clean the nozzles most of the time they get clogged if it didn't squirt our replace the pump

I have the FPOF 360 AC model - 1/12 HP 350 gal/hr. The motor is working, but it is not suctioning any water. Thanks. Karen

I would take a drill and drill an eighth inch hole in the discharge pipe of the pump. I always do this
when installing a new pump, because sometimes the pump will get air in it, the little hole will vent
out the air. There will be water squirting out the little hole, but that doesn't hurt anything.

Hope this helps.

Front load GE Adora washer isn't spinning when it should. Other sites I see they talk about replacing the door lock assembly...what else could it be?

I had the same problem with my front load (different model). The pump was not pumping out the water, thus stopping or slowing the spin. Take off your pump (located under the washer in the front right on my model) and look inside to see if there is any junk stopping the plastic spinner to spin. Clean out really good along with the attached hoses. Replace (tricky!) and try the washer! I had lots of junk in the pump along with a few hairpins that stopped the sinner in the pump. This is a tricky process on my model.

Washer arms do not spin only squirt water

Sounds to me that the arms are pluged. The arms can be removed by removing the center nut or screw. Remove them and run it with them out and listen if you hear a strong spray, you should. Wash the arms out in a sink paying attention to the water coming out the small holes that nothing is trying to come out of them and that the water flows free, then reinstall them. let me know how it goes.

Troy-bilt 2200 psi pressure washer

I have a Troybilt Model 2200 PSI Pressure Washer in which I have used only 2 times in the past 2 1/2 years. Went to use it this past weekend and the pump in not working. Water shoots out of the side. I bought this brand and model as I thought Troybilt was suppose to be so good. Went back to where it was purchased and had no success but to say I could buy another pump or take it in to be repaired. I believe that this power washer should be replaced at no charge. 2 uses does not constitute a few hundreds of dollars.
Have you to heard anything concerning pump problems on this particular model? Thanks for any advice. .

Front windshield washer won't squirt

Sometimes it's as simple as clogged jets where the solution comes out. I would take a fine needle or pin and insert it into the hole where the solution comes out to see if it frees it up enough to squirt first. They sometimes get clogged with salt or dirt.

My GE WBXR1060TAWW clothes washer is leaking significant amounts of water. It seems to be draining correctly, but there is still some water left in the machine after running. Please advise. Thanks.

you have something stuck inside the Washing machine pump assembly,you could tip over the machine disconnect the drain holes and look in the pump and clear what ever is jammed inside. <<<Remember to disconnect the power cord first>>
