I have a top loading GE washer turns washer on water starts up and then a few minutes later h20 water supply comes up and water drains out of washer
The H20 error is a low-water flow error. It could be a problem at the inlet (shut-off closed, low flow through the hoses), the inlet valves, the pressure sensor/air tube that checks how much water arrived in the tub in about 8 minutes or a problem with the controller getting the correct messages.
Since some water arrived in the washer, close the shut-off valves and take the hoses off. Check for debris in the filters (in the hoses and the inlet valves on the washer). Put a bucket under the hoses and check the water flow from each hose. If you have low water flow, replace the hoses and check for any other places that could be clogged or leak. Make sure that the drain hose outlet isn't below the normal fill level in the washer.
Check the pressure system and reed switch that determine the amount of water in the tub. If the air tube is clogged, remove the blockage. Check that the inlet valves are opening and closing properly. Finally, check that the control board and wiring to make sure that the water level signals are reaching the control board. For some GE washers, there is a reset for the control board that is described on the diagnostic sheet inside the washer near the control panel. Try to reset the error message following the directions.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of the washer for further instructions on testing for and finding the problem.

Dumps water on floor
Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: During fill onlyDuring drain and spin onlyAll the time
During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
During drain and spin only
- Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
- The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
- Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:
- Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.
- Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
- Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.
- Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
