You can remove the front or back panel depending on your model and observe the washer in operation to see where the leak is coming from.

Why would my floor board on the drivers side have a puddle of water? I did just replace a heater core. i thought that would solve the problem.


So you're saying you replaced the heater core because water was puddling on the driver's side, but water is still puddling on the driver's side? I'm assuming you're in the US and the driver's side is on the left and the heater core is on the right side.
Do you get much rain where you live? Is the vehicle parked outside? Do you notice the puddling more often after a rain? If this is the case, your water intrusion may be because of a leaking seal around the windshield or door. Check by getting the floor reasonably dry, and then have someone sit inside while another floods your car with a garden hose - specifically the windshield and driver's door. Have the inside observer try to catch a stream of water along the edge of the windshield, along the door jam, or along the door sill.

Occassional leaking of wash machine


The water may be a result of the drain not being able to handle the flow. This can be a result of either the drain hose not being in far enough, a blockage in the drain, or even a slow draining main line in the house. (The above applies if the puddle is from the drain area.)

I have a leak at the driver side front onto the floor. This is a right hand drive model. It only happens when car is parrked in the rain. It is so much that a puddle of water forms at the front and back...


i think the drain is blocked that allows the water that collects under the wiper motor grill ,look on the rear of the firewall and their is a compartment where the wiper motor is ,look either side and their is a drain hole and i think this is blocked with dead leaves or general rubbish like old rags or tissue paper

There is water puddling up on the passenger side floor and actually seems to be coming up thru the floor, nothing leaking down from anywhere.


ok you got some possibles.1 check cabin filter if signs of water than drain plug on fire wall cloged.causing water to enter by over filling and no were to go.but thru the filter.easy fix.also if you losing anti-freeze than that will point at your heater core leaking from line or core itself.need to test it,turn on heater and check floor with a towel. lay it on floor going up to firewall inside truck.go for a good drive so pressure can build and heater on.while engine hot look at floor towel top part by firewall wet prob heatercore.also check if door is wet to eliminate possbility of door seal leaking.let me know.

GE Profile leaking onto floor


Clean the drain pan and drain line in the back of the freezer section behind the cover underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

Leaking from the lower right hand side during rinse cycle.


I had the problem with dribbles of water from the right side lower edge of the door, causing puddles across the floor.
Found there was a RECALL on MDB6000AWW models. The door inside panel was replaced by the dealer for free. No more puddles.

Leaking on the floor on "small load" setting only


I have been selling and been doing factory authorized service on GE for nearly 30 years. I have sold many of this model. It's hard to imaging that a machine would leak water on small loads but not larger loads. In a case such as this, a servicer must remember to test the machine exactly as the home owner is using it. I would take pull the machine away from the wall and adjacent cabinets and dryer if hoses permit, (so that I could rule out water coming from somewhere other that the washer) remove the front panel, and have the home owner run the exact cycle with the exact settings and the same clothes load and soap used when the machine leaked. I suspect that some water is splashing over the wash tub. If you use a gentle cycle or a larger load you get less splashing. Even having a few more cloths items in the machine would reduce splashing. You might not expect a solution, but you do deserve an explanation. Some times the solution is strange, for example: I had a customer who said the washer leaked a lot of water onto the floor the first time it was used in the day, but worked great the rest of the day. I came out early the next day and tested the machine, and it did exactly that. What happened was the builder added on this new laundry room and the drain pipe went through the floor before the plumber added the trap. The builder then insulated the area but put the insulation on the room side of the trap, allowing cold air to freeze and plug the drain. After warm water pumped into the drain and most of the water overflowed the top of the pipe onto the floor, the rest of the water melted the ice in the trap and the machine worked fine until the next day after the water had a chance to form a later of ice in the trap again. The fix was simply to move the insulation to the other side of the trap. (OK, here in Minnesota we run into weird things like that, but my point is to test the machine exactly as it is used to find where the problem lies) I'd like you to post a comment when you find your solution.
