Question about GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Leaking from under the washer

I have a GE Profile, topload. I think I may have a hose loose or cracked.

The problem started when I had a load of clothes off balance, so much so that it moved the washer out of it's original position SEVERAL inches and turned about 1/8 rotation.

I shifted the clothes inside and finished the load, mopping up water as it ran.

We ran the washer a second time to see what it would do, and as it started to drain, water began seeping out from under the unit again.

Do you have any suggestions for me?

There are 2 metal clips between the top and front panel. you can use a putty knife to unlatch these clips and the front will come off, then you can look inside to see where the water is coming from.

Ge WPRE6100G will not spin automatically but it will manually


I just had the same problem with my 2 yr old GE toploader and on mine the problem was a small hose plugged with lint and soap slime leading to the pressure switch. On mine I removed the control panel by removing the top (3) screws in the back of the washer then the face of the whole control panel slides to the right about an inch (MAKE SURE WASHER IS UNPLUGGED ! ) and the panel will pull away being carefull not to unplug any wires on the back of the of the panel. Mine had a plastic hose hooked to the pressure switch on the load size knob just pull the hose off and try blowing thru it if you can't that should be your problem blow it clear. What happens is to spin out the washer get a signal from that pressure switch telling it all the water has pumped out and its ok to spin if it is plugged the washer thinks water is still in the tub and wont spin out.

Hope this helps.

GE Profile top load washer purchased 2003 water comes out from under washer when spin and drain cycle on. this not mentioned in trouble shooting area. think it is water pump or whatelse can it be?


It has to be in the water exit path somewhere - is there a pump sump inspection? Is there a hose split? Likely the drain hose, or where it connects to the machine. Has the pump split open? Can you remove the machine cover and inspect it while it is doing a cycle so you can see where the water is coming from?

My Whirlpool ultimate care is leaking under,I did check the hoses and they are okey. What could be the problem?.


Can you describe where the leak may becoming from? For example, near the front, from under the washer, or near the back.

If you notice a pool of water coming from under the washer near the FRONT, this is commonly caused by a leaking water pump. Since these pumps are sealed units and are considered non-serviceable, it must be replaced. They cannot be resealed or "fixed".

If the leak appears to be leaking from under the washer near the CENTER of the tub, either the tub seal is leaking or the air dome hose may have come loose. If the tub seal is leaking, it also must be replaced. If the air dome hose comes loose, however, the washer will never fill up all the way and will continuously run. This will cause a flood rather than a drip.

If the leak is coming from the REAR of the washer, this can be caused by cracked fill hoses, loose fill hose connections, a leaking drain hose, or a fill valve hose leaking.

Since you said you checked your hoses, I suspect a water pump, or something loose. Can you please confirm your symptoms and let me know?

Water leaks under washer on floor - olderGE profile


I see Eric C was correct, that you did not post your correct model number. You did say older GE, and from your description it sounds like you need to replace the WH23X42 water pump (about $50). It is one 1/4 inch clamp on the bottom holding on the flexible drive, three 5/16 hex head screws mounting the pump body to machine, and four squeeze style spring clamps holding the hoses. (be ready to catch the water when you remove hoses)

Water leaks


If there is water leaking from under the washer, then you have a water leak from one of your water hoses. Check the back of the washer, where the water comes into the washer, to see if its leaking water or the hose is cracked. If its leaking water from the intake hose, then unscrew the hose and check the rubber washer, to see if it needs reolaced. Sometimes those rubber washers get cracked or broken. If that doesn't help, unplug your washer from the power cord and unscrew your intake water hoses and flip the washer gently on it's side and check the water hoses under the washer for leaks or cracks. Replace the hoses if cracked. Your local hardware store should have replacement hoses. This should solve your problem, but if not, then you need to call a washer repair person to look at it. I hope this helps.:)

Two year old maytag topload washer leaking from bottom


Possible the water is coming out of the wall standpipe. Plug off the wall first.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Washer leaking


There are several things that will leak under a GE washer. The the usual suspects are drain hose connections, or hoses that have cracks or holes. I would inspect the hoses first as this would be the easiest fix. The other thing that can causes problems is the wash tub seal on the bottom of the tub. If the spanner nut (under the agitator) comes loose, the seal will unseat and the tub will begin to drip (I've had this one happen to me). Another cause can be the wash tub itself (I've also experienced this one). Inspect the wash tub for cracks. The tub can develop stress cracks and begin to leak. Especially if this is a washer that was involved in a move. To access the inside of the machine, the front should come off by pushing under the front lip of the machine with a putty knife. There are metal clips that hold the front to the top. Look in the crack with a flashlight to locate them. Push in with a putty knife to release and the front should just come off. I hope this helps you.
