Question about GE Profile 3.5 Cu. Ft. King-Size Capacity Washer with Stainless Steel Basket
Have a sudden leak from washer (top load), Hoses are okay - no water on drain hose or at wall stack -- machine is off & leaking as I write from the rear right. What is the best way to determine what's leaking and how do I gain access (preferable easy way HA!) to find leak ? Looks like the whole machine needs to be disassembled to find leaking spot??
Thanks for your help
Ok..so you checked al the hoses.. do you mean ALL the hoses inside the washer? or outside the washer.. chances are one of the hoses broke free durin the violent spin cycle of that over-sized rug.. and you haven't found it yet. If you have sufficient room to extend the washer out from the wall.. gain access to the inside of it from the back.. then check each and wvery hose connection/clamp to make sure they are secure.. also.. look at the pump assemby to make sure it isn't the source of the leak..then if nothing is obvious,, watch for leaks by using a flashlight and examining everything you can while it fills the tub.. Leaks are normally the easiest thiong to zero in on.. and ... try to have a few towels or wet/dry vac handy during all this.. Hope this helps...

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker

SOURCE: Intermittent water on floor
Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine.
There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.
