Front Load GE Washer Leaks while filling.
GE Washer Model WCVH6800J1WW purchased in 11/09 leaks while filling. I have removed the lower toe panel and I can see water leaking and running down the rubber bellow and drips across the counterweight (at lower middle part of counterweight) onto floor. The water seems to be leaking from the top left portion of the rubber bellow as fill water enters washer. I have checked the rubber bellow for rips or damage and none found. I was advised to check the rear bellow seal where it connects to the tub, and make sure it wasn't loose which could let the bellow shift and cause a leak. I am not sure where this clamp is located to see if it is loose or not. The bellow doesn't move when I try to move it with my hands. There is no water leak as the wash cycle begins or during the spin or drain cycle. Do you have any suggestions or check points that may help. Thank you.
There are two hoses where water come in at the top of the bellow. what you need to do is figure out if it is the hoses or the bellow. My money would be on the bellow but there is that possibility. If you take the top off you may be able to see the hoses during fill. If the hoses are not the problem the bellow is bad. This page will help with replacing the bellow. GE Washer Bellow Replacement
