ge is funny like that, it will leak sometimes, i had a cust. like that a few times, i ended up replacing trans, tub seal, & tub on one & she still called & said it was leaking. 2nd. trip, i replaced fill valve, pressure switch, & hose. 3 weeks later she called & said it was leaking again. i ended up giving cust. a buyout.she excepted & bought new washer.

The GE that I own would occasionally leak.  I found gunk in the hose to the pressure switch.  Cleaned it out and haven't had an issue since.

The inside panels looked like they had some dried soap/water residue on them as did the base of the washer

Most of the time this means that the tub seal has leaked on the transmission then the transmission slings this water all over the panels during spin. It is not unusual for this to be intermitting sometimes it will only leak after it has washed a while and sometimes if you spin it out then fill it will leak.

As for the side of the panels, the line of water/soap started near the top of the panel. About the same height as the top of the tub.

Also other then the side panels and bottom everything else was spotless inside, very clean looking.

Ok that is too high for the tub seal. Maybe it is too much suds, which would explain why it didnít leak for you.

I had a guy call me out 5 times about his GE washer leaking and I never did find a leak. Then he said forget it bring me a new washer.

It so happened I needed a washer because I was moving in my house so I took it and put it in my house. It has been running in my house for 6 years and hasnít leaked a drop. (Knock on wood).
