fabulous GE spacemaker pees on my floor

7 posts in this topic

And even more fun, it's jammed in a corner of my verrrry small bathroom in its own little corner. I can't imagine getting it out of there, I should just call a repairman...but.. Im the curious type. It leaks from both sides on the floor. Just a nice steady flow, enough to drown an average towel.  I think I overloaded it the other day *oops*. Could that have done the deal and broke a seal?

Wow, good thing I found the manual cuz there really aint no way I could pull this sucker out of it's cubby hole. Anyhoo.. it is a WSM2700 Electric specifically a WSM2700TCWWB. Really, I should just have the repairman come out.. Im not gonna be able to do a darn thing with it. It'd be a real b*tch to pull it out of it's little space. I'm not sure they didn't build the house around it. ha..

I will imagine any service company will require you to make that accessable before they will touch it, so be sure to tell them when you call that it is built into the house!!!   LOL

Seriously?:yikes: jeez.. Im really concerned on that then. This sucker is in a "closet" type space and that space is off the smaller space in the corner of the bathroom. I really dont know how they got it in there! I'll include pix.. just FYI. hmm.. guess I can only attach one. This pic shows the "closet" space it's tucked into and the wicker piece is removable shelves against the wall across from the machine.

 This sucks a lot. 

So, any ideas on this problem tho? I'd like to know and maybe have an idea of how much a fix like this might generally cost.

Nice set up, but all of that door facing will have to be removed.  They will either require you to have it done or will have you sign a waver against any damage they cause, and you could not blame them.

Is the washer leaking during the agitation? If it is it's probably spinning and agitating at the same time spewing water over the side of the tub which means the internal brake on the transmission isn't working and the transmission would need to be replaced. Put the washer on the spin cycle and let it get up to full spin and then turn off. if it stops spinning right away you might just have a pump problem, if it takes awhile for it to quit spinning I would be pretty sure that it;s the transmission. The front panel comes off so it wouldn't  be to hard to diagnois. Easy repair if it's the pump hard repair if it's the transmission, but remember either part can be purchased here, if it's under 5 years old there is a transmission warranty through GE.
