My GE washer leaks water during spin cycle only, seemingly from bottom of valve(?) where water hoses hook up, hoses look to be in good shape, only a year or so old.


If it is leaking at where the drain hose comes out of the wash machine, make sure the plastic spider clamp is seated securely in the groove on the drain hose. If that's not it, then, yes, you'll need to open up your washer to gain access to the inside of it. I don't know which model GE wash machine you have, but most of the GE top loaders can be opened by following the instructions in this youtube video:



Good luck!

Whilst wash on, water leaks from the underneath of washing machine. but cant see where it is coming from


if the water is leaking during the fill cycle when the detergent is being added from the drawer
ensure the draw is clear, if too much deturget rests has blocked the vent then water maybe running out on the inside.

if the problem is happening during the wash cycle this indicates a leak on your drum, ensure your door seal is intact and not leaking.

if the problem is during pumping, ensure that the pump is not causing a problem
maybe open the bottom vent and ensure the cover is seated properly and pump is clear.
also check the outlet pipe is not blocked or leaking and water is running back on the outside of the outlet pipe and under the machine


I hope this was useful.

During the wash cycle of the 24" combo washer dryer, it leaked


A hose inside the washer is your most likely culprit. On older whirlpool washers they used a plastic hose to run from the pump to the back case of the machine that was pretty susceptible to cracking.

Washer leaking water during wash cycle. Does not


There is a bad seal where the tub mounting with the transmission shaft to cause the leak. It leaks when it tuns. To access this, the agitation fin need to be out so you can see the big nut holding the tube in a place with the shaft. Below this nut is a seal or gasket to prevent the water getting out of the bottom tube. Replace this then you are good . Good luck.

Water leaking bottom front door


Check out the front seal carefully for a replacement. Due to the flexibility of the seal, it is not to easy to spot a tear mark, Under pressure of an operation load, a small tear will allow water leaking through, so there is a leak. It is very common that a hard sharp object left inside clothing and during washing cycle, it makes its way to the seal and cause a damage. Hope this can help.

Dish washer not filling


I had the same problem. It was a clogged water inlet valve. Packed with sediment. Accessible from the bottom if you have the right tools. Just clean out and replace. Or the valve could be bad.
