Question about GE Spacemaker Washer and Dryer Electric Laundry Center

1 Answer

Pump is leaking on model WSM2000HAWAD, I believe a 1988 model, Ser # FZ604208. Leaks at the seam and/or gasket where it looks like the pump housing was originally assembled from two halves. I would suppose this takes a replacement pump? Is it a feasible replacement for a DYI?

What you can do is to open out the pump assembly and clean it well from all dirt and reassemble. The leakings can be plugged by proper sealing, tightening of the hose joints. replace the gasket if worn out and the replacement type pump with the same mountings will not be difficult to fix.

Losing a lot of coolant. I don't see a leak. I started to drain the system and it smells burnt to s**t. What might my problem and possible solutions be?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Water pump -- A bad shaft seal will allow coolant to dribble out of the vent hole just under the water pump pulley shaft. If the water pump is a two-piece unit with a backing plate, the gasket between the housing and back cover may be leaking. The gasket or o-ring that seals the pump to the engine front cover on cover-mounted water pumps can also leak coolant. Look for stains, discoloration or liquid coolant on the outside of the water pump or engine.
Radiator -- Radiators can develop leaks around upper or loser hose connections as a result of vibration. The seams where the core is mated to the end tanks is another place where leaks frequently develop, especially on aluminum radiators with plastic end tanks. On copper/brass radiators, leaks typically occur where the cooling tubes in the core are connected or soldered to the core headers. The core itself is also vulnerable to stone damage. Internal corrosion caused by old coolant that has never been changed can also eat through the metal in the radiator, causing it to leak.
Most cooling systems today are designed to operate at 8 to 14 psi. If the radiator can't hold pressure, your engine will overheat and lose coolant.
Hoses -- Cracks, pinholes or splits in a radiator hose or heater hose will leak coolant. A hose leak will usually send a stream of hot coolant spraying out of the hose. A corroded hose connection or a loose or damaged hose clamp may also allow coolant to leak from the end of a hose. Sometimes the leak may only occur once the hose gets hot and the pinhole or crack opens up.

Ariston afa 370x leaking water after wash cycle puddle on floor. no problem with anything else


Hello.

When you are doing your laundry and you notice water on the floor that should not be there. A moderately handy homeowner will be able to identify and fix many kinds of leaks. Doing the service your self can save you the cost and hassle of having a service technician come out. Small leaks lead to large ones quickly, and that can result in ruined flooring and the possibility of mold growth. Fix most leaks in a day or less, with purchased parts from supply houses or home improvement stores.

Here are Instructions and tools Needed to solve the problem

  • Flashlight ,Adjustable wrench ,Flathead and Philips screwdrivers
1. Water Supply Leaks

1 Find the source of the leak. Turn on the machine while it is empty, and then look behind it with a flashlight while the tub is filling. Pay close attention to the hoses, and look for drips or running water. Some drips may start out slow, but gain momentum with continued water pressure.

2 Turn the water off. Often, if the water is leaking from the fitting where the hose attaches to the tap in the wall, you need to replace the hose gaskets. Unscrew the hose from the tap by hand or by using an adjustable wrench. Use a flathead screwdriver to pry the old gasket out. Place a new gasket in the hose connection where the old one was removed.

3 Turn the water on, and check for leaks again. If a leak is at the fitting or elsewhere on the hose itself, replace the entire hose and gasket assembly. Turn the water on again, and check for leaks. If the machine still leaks, check your work, and then look for other causes.
2. Pump Replacement 1Move the dial to the end of the wash cycle to drain the water from the tub. Turn the water off at the wall supply taps.

2 Remove the top of the washer. In many models, the top pops up when you apply upward pressure to the front of the washer at the joint. Sometimes, you may have to remove part of the instrument panel, which is attached with screws.

3 Look into the cabinet around the tub to find the pump. Pumps are either direct-drive or belt-driven. If you see a belt, you have a belt-driven pump. If there is no belt, it is a direct-drive pump. Remove water lines, and take out the old pump. Replace with a new pump, reattach water lines, and reattach the belt, if necessary. Turn on the water, and check for leaks.

Good Luck and thanks for using fixya.

My ge front load washer has a substantial leak when it is running. it is leaking from the bottom of the unit. It is not the drain hose or a clog in the drain. But it leaks like crazy PLEASE HELP


Check the door gasket for rips. Also there is a gasket between the two halves of the the outer drum, check that for leaks. Look at the pump housing and the hose that connects the pump to the drum for leaks.

What is the correct method to install water pump


Hello. Make sure the metal surfaces are all perfectly clean and sanded smooth with emery cloth. make sure the gaskets fit well. if not trim them. Finally if all else fails use some gasket cement to insure a leak proof water pump. This gasket cement is a common item available at most hardware and auto parts stores. Joe

Water pump is leaking, can i just replace seal on a honda cbr 400 rr 1988 model.


Not really!
The leaking (weep-hole) is purposely put in the water-pump to warn you that the water pump is defective.
You have to replace the water-pump together with new gasket.

1. Drain the coolant into a container by opening the radiator cap, and the drain-plug under it.
2. Remove the water-pump hose and the bolts .
3. Put in place the new water-pump with new gasket.
4. Reverse removal procedure for installation.
5. Start engine and check for leaks.

Danby DDW396: pump leaks when in use.


If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
