    I lifted the machine and found out that the leak is coming from the top of the tub at the back panel. Took the panel off, The hose looks good but the unit it connects to looks kinda old. but not broken. Only noticed leak on the rinse. Trans stopped kinda hard . maybe spring for tub could have broken and tub got out of align with water chute. didnt look at that . Thanks....

    Are you talking about a toilet ? I have a washing machine !

    I found out that the tub is not holding itself centered. all the springs are still there on the bottom. Is there something else that holds the tub centered ?

Hello,

The problem of your washer does not need any part replacement the solution is just to give it a little service on the drum connected to the hose/water drainage

Clean tank ball and drain seat thoroughly. If leak persists, replace the worn tank ball or flapper with a Fluid-master Bull's Eye Flapper Model 500, Bull's Eye Super Flapper Model 501 or a Flusher Fixer Kit replacement seat for damaged brass, plastic or ceramic flush valve drain seats.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

Most likely the hose on the pump is leaking since that hose get the most use. I would replace the hose if this machine runs well. The top and the front panel would have to be removed to gain access to it.

The big leak will be the torque converter pump seal

How to instal a transmission oil pum for chevy tahoe


It involves removing the trans from the vehicle pulling the pan off the bottom of the trans removing the tcc solenoid from the pump then removing all the bolts from the pump and pulling it out the front ... chances are though if the pump is bad so is the rest of the trans .. if its just a convertor seal leaking u need to drop the trans pull the convertor pry out the old seal from the pump and replace it with new .

After my daughter washed a quilt. The Washer leaks water out of the bottom. Is a seal loose? What is my best access to open the washer to see what the problem is. Thanks


The quilt had nothing to do with this problem. It is the water pump that is worn and has started to leak from old age. It needs to be replaced.

GE style washer Common problems: - greeseOil on the clothes or floor. In most cases a new transmission will be required. You can rebuild the Trans for oil on the floor, but I find it best just to replace the transmission with a rebuilt one = less problems and faster repair. I have a parts breakdown of the old style transmission here. How to access the washer information.
Change transmission in GE washer-Take transmission out for repairs. - Unplug washer. Remove agitator from washer by pulling straight up on it, some agitators have a bolt under the cap, remove cap and look for a bolt first. Remove the agitator bearing from transmission hub. Get top up by pressing on 2 clips located about 6 in in from side between top and cabinet. Putty knife or flat blade screwdriver works well here. Take the filter flow tube off. Lift top. Remove three bolts holding basket to hub, and use a 12 POINT 1/2" socket to remove the bolts. Lift basket out of washer. Remove the two clamps holding the black boot to the tub and to the transmission. There are six bolts holding the transmission in the washer. Remove the bolts and lift transmission out of the machine.
To replace bottom seal - Turn trans. upside down in a bucket, put in vice, etc. Remove the nut holding the drive pulley on. Take drive pulley off. You can now pry the oil seal out of the trans. bottom and replace. If you wish to put the proper amount of oil in the trans. you will need to remove the bottom cover. Unless you have lost a great deal of oil, I would bypass this. I would estimate the oil loss and put in a lesser amount through the opening where you will be putting the new seal. When replacing the pulley, do not turn the nut holding pulley on. Hold nut stationary and turn pulley in the direction that nut will tighten. This will keep you from separating the hub, torque spring, and drive collar in the transmission. If you see evidence of water in the transmission, my recommendation would be to purchase a rebuilt transmission and repair in that manner. You may wish to do this regardless of the condition of the trans. You will receive a one year warranty with the rebuilt trans. I have a parts breakdown here for the transmission if you need it.
Usually you have to only add a little oil to replace what was lost...not much...really!!
The oil used is a Non-detergent, Gear oil approximately 90 weight. The main pulley seal is WH8X281 and foam nut seal is part # WH2X671.

Washer leaking from bottom of tub


If you have the tub out the seal can be removed by taking the brass ring off the shaft, its on top of the seal, then grab the seal with a pliers or pry it out with a screwdriver etc. The new seal will cost about $40-$50. when you put the new seal in put the rubber part on first, careful to not tear it on the slot cut in the shaft to mount the basket. Next put the old brass ring on top of the new one, use this to push the new ring on, this will help get it over the notch for mounting the basket. When the new ring is ontop of the seal remove the old ring, reassemble, check for leaks.

Hi,
Its possible that your trans. is going to need replaced. Maybe have some bad seals on the trans. As far as the water leak goes. Could be a tub seal, maybe some worn inlet hoses, maybe a leaky inlet valve.

We hope this gives you a start on your appliance repair. Anymore questions please feel free to reply back.
