Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Cold water runs into the machine very very slowly.

We checked the hoses going into the washer and there was no obstruction. Went so far as to replace the water inlet valve inside the machine. The water is still running sooo slow.

No cold water Running into Machine


Try checking for debris clogging the inlet of the washer. Shut off the supply water, then start the machine to do a warm wash (to relieve any water pressure in the hoses) for a few seconds - then shut off. Unplug from power and move the machine so that you can have good access to it and then mark and disconnect the hoses. Some machines have screen filters on the hose inlets. Check and clear out any obstructions you may find. It's not unusual to find sand, metal / rust chips, etc as can result from being pumped up from a well or an opened fire hydrant on the street due to a fire or the town simply flushing lines.

Before reconnecting the hoses - place and hold the ends into the tub (if possible) and turn the water on slowly to make sure that water comes out of both. This ensures that there is water flow all the way up to the machine inlets. You'll have to clear or replace any parts (hoses, screen, etc.) as needed to get water flowing.

If still not working - the issue can be a simple hot / cold water solenoid valve replacement ($) to something more involved ($$$). Check out the video to get an idea as to how to check out the valve (it's very similar to all machines).

Good luck!

Water won't enter into the washing machine model bfwm7 purchased 24/7/06. have checked water supply and filters and checked front door is closed.


1) Verify power is getting to the machine. Check for a tripped circuit breaker.
2) Verify water is getting to the machine- First, turn off the water then disconnect the inlet hoses on the back of the washer. Turn water on slowly and verify that is coming out of the hose. If water is coming out then check for any obstruction or sediment in the inlet valves. Clean, if necessary. If there is no water flow, disconnect the hose and look for obstructions or simply replace it.
3) If water is getting as far as the inlet hose connections, then remove the back access panel. Check the inlet hoses to make sure they are not kinked or damaged in any way.
4) If water is getting as far as the inlet hoses, then the problem probably lies in the water valve or water valve solenoid. Time to call in a pro.
That should help you figure it out. Though I would recommend replacement as it is most likely time for a new one.
Thanks,

Replacement of cold water valve on ge model wpgt9360eoww washer


Is this a new development or has it always done it slowly? Before jumping to parts changing, make sure it isn't something simple like a kinked or obstructed hose or even something like someone nearly closed the supply valve!

Water for intial fill works fine . when it goes to rinse cycle the water just dribbles in making wash time go on for ever ! whats the solution?


when you start the washer set it just on cold and see if it fills slowly,when the washer goes to rinse it just uses cold water,you could have a problem with the washer or in the house,when you run it on just cold and if it dribbles in,stop it shut down the water going to the washer,remove the cold water hose from the back of the washer,stick it in the sink or inside the washer and turn it on,if it comes out strong then you have a bad water valve on the washer,if it comes out slowly you have a bad water valve in the house and it's not the washer.hope this helps

Cold water fills very slowly


Turn off the water, remove the cold water hose at the back of the washer ... inside you will find a hose washer with a screen on it - remove and replace it. I believe you will discover the screen is clogged. While you have the hose disconnected, run some water into a bucket from the hose to clean it as well.

Cold water enters washer very slowly


First - check the water inlet hose screen for calcium or rust build-up.

If cold water is filling slowly, take these steps:
  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Turn off the cold water supply faucet.
  3. Remove the fill hose connected to the back of the washer.
  4. Checkthe fill screen on the cold water inlet valve for debris or depositsthat can restrict the water flow. If necessary, you can carefully pullthe screen out and clean it. Flush the inlet thoroughly and replace thescreen. NOTE: If debris makes it past this screen, it can cause thevalve to leak and cause a flood in your laundry room. Monitor thewasher for this type of problem is you pull the screen out and clean it.
  5. Placethe end of the hose in a bucket and briefly turn on the faucet to checkfor proper pressure and flow from the cold water hose. If waterpressure from the cold inlet water hose is bad, check the hose forclogs. If the hose is okay, then I recommend calling a plumber to checkthe water supply to your washer cold water faucet.
  6. If the above checks do not help you resolve the fill problem, you will likely need to replace the inlet fill valve.

Your cold water fill valve (mixer valve) solenoid has failed if after cleaning - the condition remains.
