I have a WHRE5260E GE washer that leaks water at the motor where it goes into the drum. It had a screw missing and we replaced the screw but that did not stop the leak. I have to vacuum out the bottom of washer about every five loads before it overflows to my floor. Is there some sort of seal that needs replace? Any help would be greatly appreciated ASAP. Thanks

i'd check the drain pump-there is a seal where it attaches to the motor-leaks often there, also could be a leak in your tub seal between the tub and transmission, also sometimes the outter plastic tub gets a crack in it and leaks
Hi thanks for the question On a ge dishwasher , more often than none it leaks from the motor seals If thats what the problem is you will see it leaking from the motor shaft , It could be leaking from above the motor if it si from the tub ,Replace the part that joins the motor to the tub if its motor seals .Replace motor seals
Thanks for the questionOn a ge washer theres a over flow tube located at the back left side Sometimes if you use a high sudzing detergent , it could leak not to much to worry about just change detergent to a low sudzing one THanks for the question The appliance doc
take a butter knife and release the two clips on the top of the front panel (look in the seem between the top and front panel and push the butter knife directly into the clips), this will release the front panel from the machine. then you can see where the water is coming from.
