Water leaks out from underneth

Water leaks out from the botton of the washer not the hook up hoses.

    The water pressure tube hooks into a small plastic box at the bottom of the washer tub. Mine keeps getting moldy and this keeps the sensor from working correctly. Obvious design fault - the first time it happened we called a repairman (still under warranty). He said it never completely empties and suggested running really hot water and bleach once a week through the machine - not really convenient!! Does anyone know how to clean this little reservoir out manually?

    I have a GE model WJSR2080 with the above problem plus 2 others (bought in 2000):

    1) very loud pounding sound during spinning cycle

    2)after the initial fill of water, no agitation occurs, just a weird buzzing sound ( I notice it mostly happens when the washer is set to super load as opposed to small/large load)

    Any recommendations??

We have a WDSR2080D GE washer and had the same exact problem. We replaced the water pressure switch ($30) to see if that was the cause. A malfunction in this switch would cause the leaking from the bottom because there would be no way for the washer to "know" that the tub was filled to the appropriate level--causing the tub to overflow. Then we found out that the water pressure switch was not the cause and found that the water pump switch was the problem. A malfunction with this switch would cause water to continue to fill the tub without stopping--which would cause an overflow. Think of it as turning on a faucet without the ability to turn it off. Happily, we are now with a working and non-flooding washer at only a minimal expense. Note that the schematics for your washer are not in the manual. They are inside the control panel, which means you have to take the front of the washer off as well as the control panel in order to see what's really going on. My guess is that GE would rather consumers not try to fix their own appliances so they put instructions and helpful hints INSIDE the appliance.

Leaking maytag neptune washer

The pump and its various hoses are easily accessable through the back panel. The boot can collect coins which can block the pump. Squeeze the boot and empty it of all coins. Coins can ruin the impellers on the pump. A new pump costs $100 on line. The drain hose can be plugged by dimes and pennies. Good luck.

Leaking water from the hose connections

Had the same problem w/the water inlet w/initial installation. When the water inlet was hooked to the faucet and into the washer, water leaked on the washer end. The manual tells you to put a new "flat" washer (provided) in the washer machine water inlet, but water still leaked. It's actually the not flat washer, it's more of an "U" shape washer that goes into the washer machine water inlet and fits right over the filter in the water inlet valve. Leak was solved, but faucet was on and water was not filling in the drum. Turn power on, select cycle, water level, and press start and water should start filling the drum.

When I hook of the water hoses to the back of washing machine and turn on the water, water spews out of hose

Hello Ifox5858,

I understand that when you hook up the hose to the back of your washing machine that the water comes out of the hose. The problem that you are having may be because of washers are missing out of the hose ends. You need to take the hoses off and look and see if you have rubber washers in the side that is leaking. The washers are standard water hose washers you can buy at any hardware store.

1. Place washer in hose
2. Install hose hand tight
3. Turn a quarter turn with wrench
4. Turn water on check for leaks if leaking slowly turn tighter to leak stops

This should fix your problem.

Thank you for choosing

My washer will only work some times. When I push the start button it will make a noise like eeeeeeeee!!!but will not fill with water or anything else it just makes the noise. Every now and then it...

If it does not fill then nothing else will work either.
First take off the hoses and check the screens going into the washer, they are usually right where the hoses hook up. Make sure they are clean and then check each hose to make sure you have water from them.
If that does not work then check that you have power to the solenoid valves. Theses are magnetic valves that open to let the water in. They are on the plastic valve body where the hoses hook.
If you have power there when you try to start the washer and no water then the solenoid valves are the problem. If there is no power there then the timer has probably gone bad.
There is a slight possiblity that the fill switch failed, but that usually fails and runs the washer over, not so that it won't fill. :-)

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Ultimate care supreme leaks underneath

First check the hoses to the machine. If they leak the water follows the hoses and drips on floor. Also check the hose connection at the washer. They will leak inside. Next it may well be a water pump going out or the plastic hose that is under pressure when operating. The pump is in the middle of machine underneth - Sorry - Good luck

Leaking washer

Replace the valve, or if new, have them do it. You are sure it is the valve and not where the hot warter hose attaches? Confirm by hooking up hot water under preasure to see if that seals itself.

Hot water hook up leaking

hi bigger
turn off the valves disconnect the hose check the threads on the water intake valve(bit the hose screws onto) are not damaged by cross threading. then try wrapping silk plumbing thread tape(available at all plumbong outlets including B&Q,Homebase etc.) around the threads(wind it clockwise and give it plenty)then check the rubber washer at the end of the hose is not damaged of missing and reconnect the hose

Water inlet leaking

Take the hose off the valve and look inside it. There should be a flat rubber seal inside the hose coupling that seals to the valve. It sounds like you have lost this washer out of the end of the hose. You can pick them up at any hardware store. If they are over 5 years old, I suggest replacing the hoses completely anyway.
If this is not the problem, you may have cross threaded the hose on the valve. If this is the case you may have to change the valve.
Post back if you have any questions.
