SOURCE: hotpoint washer top loading has oil dripping on the floor

The only place oil can be coming from is the transmission. If left as is, leaking oil will eventually result in full transmission failure. Yes, you can replace the transmission, but the repair is costly and moderately difficult. I'd save the expense and put the money toward a new machine. Please don't bother rating this solution as anything but a FixYa will drop my rating.

I don't have the manual and the red light is on. Is that the toner needing replacing and how do I do it?


Here are the things that a steady red light may indicate (from the Owner's Manual):

led-erroron17.jpg A paper jam has occurred. To solve the problem, see "Clearing Jams in the Paper Tray". The front cover is open. Close the front cover. The top cover is open. Close the top cover. The paper tray is empty. Load paper in the tray. See "Loading Paper". A toner cartridge is not installed. Install a toner cartridge. See "Installing the Starter Toner Cartridge".
• A paper jam has occurred. Check the paper tray area.
• The front cover is open. Close the front cover.
• The top cover is open. Close the top cover.
• The paper tray is empty. Load paper in the tray.
• A toner cartridge is not installed. Install a toner cartridge.

My front loading GE washer WSSH300 will not drain.


Don't know if this will help or not, but your owners manual is available at http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher
Water won’t drain
Drain hose is kinked or •
Straighten drain hose and make sure washer is not improperly connected sitting on it. Top of drain outlet should be less than 8 ft. (2.5 m)
above floor. Household drain may • Check household plumbing. You may need to call be clogged a plumber. Plumbing this washer directly to a pipe is hard on the motor. Usually the drain hose elbow is inserted in a stand pipe, meaning the washer would drain water on the floor is the stand pipe is clogged.
Several items can cause the lack of draining.
If you can get to the drain hose, try lowering to a point that it will drain into a bucket. If it drains the system is not clogged. If you advance the timer and the washer drains this maybe the culprit. The motor can overheat and shut off. I would advance the timer to spin and listen for a hum in the motor and then quiet, a sign that the motor has overheated. If the water drains it sounds like the timer is at fault.
I would first make sure the drain hose is properly installed and not kinked somewhere. In earlier GE's the water drain pump could clog, your manual doesn't indicate that as a defect. Regardless timer, motor and pump are in the cycle to empty the washer water.

Hi again,

Appreciate much the "Ask Me".

I posted a rejoinder in your original post. Below is a copy...

"To fully determine whether the switch is defective or not, a continuitytester is required as well as access/removal of the said switch. This page would show you general idea of lid switches, while here would be an illustration of a generic approach to gaining access to lid switch of a top loading washer.

Another indicator would be a solid clicking sound if the switch engages but technically the continuity test would be best

Maytag Epic Washer high spin shaking, AND high-pitched sound coming out of washer


When someone reports severe vibration during spin on a brand new washer, the first question always has to be whether the transit brackets have been left in.

Washers are designed so that the drum and motor float on a collection of springs and shock absorbers. To prevent damage to these during shipping, a set of brackets is used to bolt the floating assembly to the case. If these aren't removed before first use (the manual will say how to do it) havoc ensues.

The irritating whine is a new one on me.
