Question about GE WPGT9350C Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Notice! A problem has been detected with this unit

The problem is that my washer has filled with water in preparation of washing a load of clothes and then quit. Wasn't in vacinity when it occurred so I don't know if it made any kind of noises or anything. Now the screen simply says "Notice! A problem has been detected with this unit" and it beeps 20 times. Pushing buttons has no affect. Power button is only one that works and it will turn the unit off but upon turning it back on the same "Notice! A problem has been detected with this unit" and 20 beeps occurs. I have unplugged the machine for more than 10 minutes and then plugged it in again to no luck. I took cover off and verified that fuse was not blown. This is the extent of my troubleshooting ability as machine doesn't give me any clue as to what is wrong. Would appreciate any assistance. Thanks,

Troy, see if you can get it into a factory test mode. Start by pushing the power button on; next push the home button, next push the help pad, next push the start/stop and help pad together for 3 seconds, push the test load, the contrast screen should display. Now you can cycle through the different tests or let it cycle through on it's own, each test should time out after 5 minutes. This test will include the main board operation. If any tests fail, a failure code will appear. To exit the test, press stop/start to scroll down the screen list until the screen darkens. In case this model number is not exactly correct you should be able to find a tech sheet under the consol to guide you through these test proceedures. We need an error code to find the real problem, almost sounds like a pressure switch problem. Catriver..post back.

During filling reaches fL before finished filling and stops


Not sure if this was explained to u but these washers do not fill like the old top loads did... the machine uses very little water, the clothes are rolled over and over through the water as it cascades down and up through the agitator. If you look at the agitator you'll notice it does not have an elongated spindle, it's not required. Although the machine doesn't fill your clothes will be fully washed, this design was developed to conserve water...

Washing machine flashing de


I haven't seen a DE is it maybe DC? these are the known codes
DL - Door unlocked when washer is running DS - Door is open when washer is running NF - Washer tried to fill but was not successful due to clogged water lines or closed water valves. ND - Washer is not draining it can also mean that the unit senses a small clog or frozen hose. DC - Unbalanced load prevented the washer from spinning. When the weight of the laundry is about 1kg the center of the weight gets shifted. redistribute the load and restart or add more clothing.
SUDS - Too many suds are detected, the unit will be put on hold until the suds are reduced the it will go back on. when it completes the wash it will flash END and SUDS. make sure you use HE (high efficiency) detergent

Lg front load washing machine does not seem to get the clothes clean. I think it is because it uses so little water??? How can it get clothes clean with just a few cupfulls of water? All controls and...


I have run into this problem several times with LG washers. On one job LG had us replace every electronic componet that had anything to do with the water fill and the problem still was not resolved. The electronic control determines how much water to fill depending on the load size, so smaller loads give you less water, with the same amount of soap. Leaving clothes in the washer overnight, and leaving the door closed does contribute to mold and fungi growth in the washer. The customer tried different brands of soaps and different amounts of soap. He left the door open after usage to allow the unit to dry out, and tried different cleaners, to clean out the sludge build up. We determined that there just is not enough water to thoroughly clean the clothes. The sales store had to replace the washer with another brand. There is an ongoing class action lawsuit against Lg for this problem. Do an online Search for lg washer lawsuit. By the way, we don't have a problem with clothes not getting clean with the Whirlpool Super Capacity Duet Front-Loading Washers. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Washing machine works but no water enters the unit


Fill valve is probably bad. Located where water lines hook up to washer, or could be load selector switch, could be clogged or bad. Start with this stuff first.

Water not filling on washer


the inlet filter is probably clogged restricted and/or inhibited flow of water into your machine.
These things happen, and cleaning out the filter is a good first step to finding the problem.

This often is called "lint" but is really a "whiting" left by un-dissolved soap and can be seen at it's worst on dark colored clothes. This is made worse in a colder climate where the cold water entering the washer is much colder than normal. Things that can effect the quality of the finished washed products.
Too much soap: ( we have a test for this further down the page ) If you follow the manufactures instructions on the box, then chances are you ARE using too much soap. They like to sell you their product, I find cutting usage in 1/2 of what the box says will still wash good and also cut your chances of getting "whiting" on your clothes.
Over loading the washer: Even if the agitator is suppose to go back and forth, the clothes are not. If you can hold the lid button on your washer so you can watch the clothes wash, they should 'roll" in the basket and not go back and forth like the agitator. The clothes will go down the side of the agitator, across the bottom of the basket, up the side of the basket and across the top of the water in a rolling motion. Overloading is not just too many clothes but also too little water for the size of the load is another way of having a overloaded wash load.
Water temp is important: Use a thermometer to test the temp of the incoming water in your washer. Hot water should be close to 140 degrees F. Warm water fill should be 100 degrees F. Cold water is approx 60-80 degrees F. What happens in a cold climate location is the cold water temp drops as the outside temps drops, once the water temp gets below 60 degrees F, it can no longer dissolve the soap properly and will most definitely leave "whiting" on the clothes!! Do not use a cold wash, wash your clothes in as warm as poss.  water as they can take. If you have delicates you want to wash in cold, start washer out with warm water as you are putting in the soap and fabric softener and clothes, then switch to cold to let it finish filling up, this will give you a warmer wash but not as cold as straight cold water. I find most washes can be done in a warm wash / cold rinse just fine. If you need ( and probably will ) to adjust your warm water fill, turn on the hot water tap fully, turn off the cold water tap. Let the water start to fill on a warm wash setting. Then slowly turn on the cold tap adding the cold water to the hot water making a warm fill....use a thermometer to set water temp and leave the taps stay when you get about 100 degree F water fill. I adjust my own washer usually twice a year, one on summer time and once in the dead of winter.
Test for too much soap or soap retention: Put in a load of towels or dark clothing that has been bad for the "whiting" problem. These items are bad for holding soap and getting what is called -soap retention-
Wash the load in the warmest poss. water, DO NOT add any soap. Let the washer fill with water and wash for approx. 5 minutes, lift the lid and observe what is on the top of the water. If you see soap and bubbles on top of the water, your clothes have soap retention, this soap came out of your clothes. Let the load finish with out adding any soap and wash all clothes effected with this "whiting" residue. Once all the soap is washed out of the fabric and you start to add some to each load, use about 1/2 of what the box says. Liquid soap has less problems with "whiting" than the powder does, but I find powder soap is better at getting my own personal clothes cleaner.
