Question about GE WBSE3120B Top Load Washer
Water is entering the top of the tub during the first half of the final spin cycle and splashing out of the tub and running down the inside of the outside walls then leaking onto the floor from the bottom of the washer. Is water supposed to enter from the top during the final spin cycle? If so, what would be causing it to splash out? This happens even during the small load setting, just not as bad
No spin cycle don't have water it could be the pump is not getting the water out fast enough, could be clogged or the rear drain pipe is blocked or bent. failing them to problems it could be the valve its self.

Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!
YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!
The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.

Sounds like a seal or drain hose is leaking or the clamp on a hose has vibrated loose.
Water leaking out the bottom of the machine when washing machine begins agitation cycle. If the machine is turned off the water stops leaking even with the tub full of water.
Let me know if you found it and how you do.

I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container.
Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.

SOURCE: If I do a small load after a large load, on the rinse cycle teh water gushed up through the drain in the floor and floods the floor. The plumber snaked 50 feet twice and poured down acid and it still
Since the plumber snaked 50 feet, one must conclude that the blockage is beyond the 50 foot mark.
Shame on the plumber who stopped at 50 feet. he should have snaked all the way to the street system if you live in a city or to the septic tank if you live in the country.
I would call him back and tell him that he needs to finish the job.
