GE Profile WHSB9000 -leaking right rear

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

SOURCE: Washer is leaking when draining...

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...

SOURCE: My GE WCSE4160B2WW top load washer is leaking.

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
thanks.

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.

Washer and dryer stackable unit. water is leaking from somewhere onto the floor causing floor swelling. what could be the problem?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. You need to make sure your drain hose is not clogged up or your hoses are not damaged. You need to check the water pump also. It may be clogged or leaking from the pump area. Make sure the tub is not cracked or damaged, causing water to run out. Your best bet is starting the washer while you are viewing the hoses and the pump. You should be able to find the leak this way.

Every time we wash there is water leaking, not sure were the water is coming from. i have checked the hose.


Hi.

Check that the leak is not coming from inlet valve itself. If the leak is from underneath the washer check drain pump hoses. You may need to disassemble the washer pulling up the top panel and accessing the drain pump at the bottom to find the leak.

Water is leaking out of the bottom of washer. It runs the cycle fine


Move the machine away from the wall so that the rear may be accessed. The evacuation hose is below the tub level and there are a couple of hoses to check from the rear area of the machine. If necessary, remove the rear panel with eight or more screws and set aside. Check the hose that evacuates water to the rear hose mount. These two areas may show evidence of the leak. If possible, run a cycle or two with the rear panel off and visually check for the leak(s).

Water leaks under washer on floor - olderGE profile


I see Eric C was correct, that you did not post your correct model number. You did say older GE, and from your description it sounds like you need to replace the WH23X42 water pump (about $50). It is one 1/4 inch clamp on the bottom holding on the flexible drive, three 5/16 hex head screws mounting the pump body to machine, and four squeeze style spring clamps holding the hoses. (be ready to catch the water when you remove hoses)

If it only leaks in drain it has to be a hole in the drain hose or a plugged up house drain.
