There seems to be an overflow drain from the top of the tub to the bottom (inside the cabinet). I don't know why this was designed to dump water onto your floor.

I have a model WJRE5550H1WW washer that will fill agitate but will not pump out and spin


first check the lid switch, a lot of washers will agitate with the lid open but wont spin out. If its not that check your timer and then your water pump. Most likey it is the lid switch.

Leaking


hello there





Although there are a few leaks common to all brands, most brands have leaks that are peculiar to their design. GE, Whirlpool, Maytag, and others all have common and well-known leak areas. After reading this section, see the chapter about specific brands for details.
A common "leak" zone is not a leak at all; the wall drain backs up and overflows onto the floor. This is commonly misdiagnosed as a leak. It can be difficult to diagnose; the problem may be intermittent. Depending on how badly the drain is clogged, there may be a little water or a lot, or it may only overflow every second or third load. While diagnosing a leak, do not be too quick to write this diagnosis off.
If you suspect that your drain is backing up, but you can't quite ever be there at the right time to observe the overflow, try this: wrap some toilet paper around the drain hose just above the wall drain pipe. If it backs up, the paper will get wet. Even if you're not there when it happens and the paper dries out, it will have crinkled up, and you'll know your drain's backing up.
If it isn't the drain, run the machine with a full load. Without moving the machine, get right down on the floor and look under the machine with a flashlight. Try to find the general area where water is dripping to the floor; front or back of the machine, left or right side.
Open the cabinet and look for mineral or soap deposits where there shouldn't be any.


Trace the deposits in the natural direction of waterflow (against gravity or centrifugal force) back to the source of the leak. Fill the machine again and run it through a cycle or two. Be patient; use your eyes and your brains. There is no magic, easy way to detect a leak.
The usual places are:
WATER VALVE: The guts of the fill solenoid valve sometimes will corrode. You may see water leaking from, or rust on the top of the solenoid. (See figure G-7A) Since the valves only open during a fill cycle, this may appear as an intermittent leak. The solution is to replace the valve.
PUMP: Usually from around the pulley seal. Some washer pumps have a hole that allows water to weep out when the seal starts to go bad. The solution is to replace or rebuild the pump.
BLEACH DISPENSERS: Bleach is VERY hard on plastic parts. If the bleach dispenser gets old and brittle, it can crack or break off, and the flush water can leak out.

Ref practically new, intermittent leak onto floor at left rear ref is model HSM25GFTCSA side by side


check drip pan, if it full of water and there is no heater on this model you need to upgrade it with heater under drip pan.

GE Potscrubber disher - water leaks out while filling


I would try removing the cover and make sure the float isn't sticking. On mine the float pushes on a rod that goes through the tub to a micro switch. When you hit it, it probably frees it up for a while. Hope that helps.

GE Profile with water leaking. Does not seem to be a slow leak. More like an intermittant "dump." Water on floor and refrigerator shelves. Thanks!


Look under the refrigerator and locate the defroster water drain pan. There should be a tube running down the back of the refrigerator which drains water into this pan.

If this tube or other parts of the defroster drain system gets blocked, water can get diverted before it reaches the drain pan.

Intermittent water on floor


Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine. There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.
Here you get all diagrams and parts for your appliance.

Intermittent water observed under machine


Difficult if not seen. Most common water on the floor senario is a drain pump leaking:or a perrished pipe from friction.or sometimes, water backs up from the house drainage system due to a restriction.

NEW WASHER WILL NOT SPIN OUT ALL WATER. DRAIN IS NOT KINKED AND IS AT 48 INCHES OFF FLOOR. MODEL IS WJRE5550H1WW WE HAVE IT ON EXTRA SPIN AND WE MATCH LOAD; MED SIZE LOAD / MED ON COTTON SETTING


I have the same problem, I called GE and they said there is definitely something wrong with the machine if I can just wring a bunch of water from the clothes and suggested to put a service call, seeing as I bought it last week I am going to see if I can get lowes to replace it with a WJRE5500GWW instead.
