Question about GE WJSE3110A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer wont stop draining

Washer makes a buzzing sound even when not in use. When I try to start a wash cycle, it will try to fill with water but cannot because it will be simutaneously draining while filling. I unplugged it and left it for about 20 minutes and when I plugged it back in it was the same thing. I tried to reset it, it didn't fix the problem. I pulled out the drain hose and put it back on, it didn't fix the problem. I am no repairwoman but it looks like it is stuck on rinse/drain. I am assuming this might be the timer? Should i try to install a new timer or should i just get another used one out of the paper? Also, is it worth it to have a repairman fix it or should i try to do it myself? I could always get another one for $50 but I don't like the idea of having to pick it up, move both of them, not to mention having to put mine in a landfill. any ideas????

Hi. thanks for the question .does the drain hose go down a long pipe, to drain the water out. your drain hose must be 36 inches from the floor or it will fill & drain at the same time. check this. the appliance doc

My washer fills and agitates, but when it gets to the rinse/spin cycle it stops and makes a loud grinding noise. Thanks for your time


If it doesn't drain the water after the wash cycle and the sound is more like a buzz then the first thing that I suggest you check is the lid switch. If the lid switch is damaged then the machine will not pump the wash cycle water out and it will not go into the subsequent cycles. The "grinding" or buzzing sound can be caused by an intermittent signal reaching relay switches or solenoids.

Washing machine wont hold water on any setting


raise the main drain hose to the top of the back control head. there may be a problem with the main hose being to low and the water is gravity siphoning out of the washer.make sure the washer is off when you lift the hose up but do not remove it from the wall,you should here water drain out once it has stopped draining restart you machine and it should fill to the proper level and quit then go into your wash cycle

Series 70 fills wit water stops then makes a slight buzzing sound


The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem? The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

An HF Code is a Water Inlet Problem- No or Insufficient Water Supply.

Press Pause/Cancel twice to cancel the cycle. Then, unplug the washer.

Run down the list again:
Make sure faucets are completely turned on.
Make sure the fill vavles (screens where water enter machine) aren't clogged.
Make sure the hoses aren't kinked, etc.

Plug the machine back in. Try another cycle. If the problem still occurs, You may need to replace your Water Fill Valve. Let me know if you need any further assistance.
