GE WCVH6800JMR leaking


We have a GE WCVH6800JMR that suddenly started leaking tonight after just 2.5 years of ownership. Very disappointing.

It is leaking slowly from the center at the bottom center of the door but enough that it created a substantial mess in our basement.

I have verified that the door gasket is not torn in any way that I can see or feel. The gasket does look a bit out of shape at about 2-3 o'clock on the opening of the washer but I believe it's been that way for a while so it doesn't make a lot of sense why this is happening now.

What I find even more peculiar is that there appears to be water inside the door itself as pictured.

Any suggestions and thanks in advance for any help!

it is possible to get water in between the door glass and the trim but I doubt that is your problem. If it is a substantial leak you should be able to see more than a drip. I assume you have run it and watched it drip out the door? You may have to take the bottom panel off and observe. Also double check the door gasket especially the part closest to the drum, get a flashlight stick your head inside there and look all the way around the gasket sometimes them small tears can be hard to spot.

Also, clean underneath the door window. they get gunked up and you lose your seal- resulting in drip at center bottom.

I think I found the issue. The small drain area in behind the gasket was all clogged with hair. I'm glad that seemed to fix it for me.
