SOURCE: ge top loader washer won't fill with water

When a washing machine allows cold water to enter the tub depends greatly upon its make and model. Some washing machines direct cold water only during certain cycles. Others allow hot and cold water to enter in an alternating fashion in order to equalize the water temperature. The first thing you should do is refer to your owner's manual to ensure that your washer is not operating as it should. If you discover that it isn't, investigate the machine's water inlet valve. It could be defective, and causing your problem.

Directions for testing a washing machine water inlet valve.

Before you begin to test your washer's water inlet valve, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriate switch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fuse from your home's fuse box.
Start this repair by locating your washer's water inlet valve. It will be at the back of the washer, and it will have water hoses hooked up to the back of it. Shut off the supply of water to your washer. Disconnect both hoses at the back of the washer. You might want to try pointing the hoses into a bucket or a sink, and then turning on the water supply again. Do this to confirm that you are receiving adequate water pressure, and that there is not some sort of blockage in the line.
Inspect the screens found inside the valve. Clean out any debris you find. You should be able to pop them out with a flat head screwdriver. Do use caution when handling the screens as they are irreplaceable.
There are two solenoids on the water valve. These solenoids are sometimes referred to as coils. There will be two wires attached to each solenoid. Be sure to label each of the wires so that you are able to properly reconnect them later. These wires are held in place with metal slip on connectors. Grasp firmly on each connector, one at a time, to disconnect the wire from the solenoid. Do not pull directly on the wire, pull from the metal connector.
Set your multitester to the ohms resistance scale X 1. Place each of the meter's probes to one terminal. Because the reading can vary from brand to brand and from model to model, there is no one reading you should receive. However, if your test produces a reading of infinity, then the solenoid is bad and the water valve should be replaced.

SOURCE: what is the purpose of

the purpose of that tube so it anywater that comes out of it goes through it and directs the water down the back and away from the motor. Now the bigger issue is why is water coming through that tube.What i suspect the reason of that is that the transmission is defective and the break is that internal to the transmission is slipping so the inner tub turns during the wash cycle force water up the side of the tub into that tube.during the agitate cycle the tub is not suppose to move at all and stay locked into place,but instead its moving where the water is forced up by centrifical force too and out the top of the tub cover,if it leaks with only a small water load it will leak worse with a large water load. if this is what is happening and the tub is rotating on agaitate cycle teh fix for that is to replace transmission which in most cases cost as much as replacing the washer would be

What does it mean when the washing light keeps flashing? Unable to start


In most cases that means that the machine does not believe that it is empty. This is because something is stuck in the filter or the pump. This is especially true on front load machines. IF it is a front loader you can remove the panel under the door and look for the drain plug, When you take it out there is going to be a flood. Be sure that you have something to catch the water. The other type of machine that is a top loader uses a filter and pump too but you have to tip the machine back to get to it.

I have a ge profile washer machine washes and spins but wont drain


Hi.

Disconnect power, then locate the access to drain pump. On GE top loader the pump access is usually at the back, sometimes at the bottom. Disconnect the hose from the pump and remove any blockage in there.

Check also the height of the drain hose at the back and ensure that the hose is set according to manual. An drain hose set incorrectly will result in drain problems.

If that does not fix the problem, clean or replace the pressure switch and pressure hose that detects water level determining when to start and stop draining.

Regards.
