The first thing you need to do is to check the following parts until you find out the part that needs to be replace to fix the washing machine.
Here I am going to give you a brief description of the parts you need to check, and below you will have the links to the pages with the videos that will show you how the repair is done.
Taking apart: To fix a GE Hotpoint washer when is not working properly, the first thing that you need to learn before you try to fix it, is how to take it apart and how to put it back together properly. Once you know how to dismantle the washer, the repairs becomes easier to do.
If you need to check the timer, the water temperature switch, the water level switch, or the motor speed switch. You need just to open the controls panel. If you need to check the motor, the pump, the clutch, or the transmission. Then you need to open the controls panel and remove the top and front panels.
The fill hoses: If the washer drips water to the floor during the fill cycle, you need to check the fill hoses to make sure that the problem is not a bad fill hose. If the hoses are old, the best thing to do is to replace them with new ones. You should always shut the water faucets off when not using the washer to avoid a hose breaking and flooding the floor.
The water valve: The water valve is another area that the water could escape from. Check for pin holes or cracks on the body of the water valve. Also check the threads on the water valve. Sometimes when the hoses are threaded on the valve the threads get crisscross and get damaged.
The pump: Cracks or pin holes in the body of the pump will cause the pump to leak water out. To check it out remove the front panel of the washer, start the washer on a wash cycle and let it work out. Check to see if any water is leaking out of the pump
The pump hoses: Another parts to check are the hoses that connect to the tub and the pump. Old hoses tend to dry out and develop cracks that the water could leak out from. Check the hoses with the tub full of water and also check the hoses clamps.
The tub seal: This seal is used to seal the tub and the transmission shaft. With time and age the seal gets more rigid and cant stop the water from dripping between the tub and the transmission shaft. If that is the case, you will need to replace it.
