GE washer and dryer

Noticed water in floor mainly in front of dryer. Clothes seem to contain more water than usual when completing the wash cycle. Seems to take clothes longer than usual to dry. Does this combination of symptoms, indicate an apparent problem with the washer? If so, is it something I can attempt to correct myself?

Hello swdjraia and Welcome to the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Washers which do not pump out all of the water usually are not spining fast enough to pump out all the water. Usually caused by overloading with too many clothes or an unbalanced load.

Try washing less clothes per load. The intent is to determine if there is a problem with the washer or this incident is one isolated case. Before assuming there is a problem with the washer.

Other possibilities may be the pump, pump motor, restricted water discharge line in the washer, timer, while in the spin cycle, spin cycle may be too short, etc.

Thanks for your reply. I will try your suggestions. The restricted water discharge line rings a bell. Is it possible for something small like a sock to get in under the agitator and clog up the line?
