Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer
Ge washer model wwsr3090t6ww won't stop filling- took off front panel of washer- there are 4 little black hoses that attach to the basin onf the machine at the top they are all either broken of have come aprt can I fix this and is it the reason why the water wont stop filling
The usual culprit for a washer that will not stop filling is the pressure switch. The switch is located inside the operator console behind the load size, or water level knob (this knob has different names based on the washer model). Before assuming the pressure is defective, however, inspect the pressure switch and ensure the small plastic air hose is still attached to it. It is common for this small air hose to come loose or develop small cracks or breaks. Without the hose installed, the switch cannot detect the appropriate pressure in the wash tub and will not shut off. The result: as washer that continually fills and will overflow. What appears to be a significant problem may only be a loose hose and few minutes of your time. Please inspect the switch, check the entire length of the hose for cracks and make sure the electrical connection(s) are intact and not corroded, then get back to me. I hope this helps you.
PS Make sure you UNPLUG the washer before servicing!

The black 'hoses' are the stabilizer suspension and should be replaced.
The clear hose running up the left side of the outter tube vasin is the water level indicator... it may have pulled itself free from the load size selector (left side top panel) and that is what is causing the water to keep running. The machine isn't recognizing any water in the basin.
Check to be sure the hose is secured on the basin as well as the selector. (I'm certain it's not).
Now to adress the black 'hoses'...
you will have to take out the two srews that hold the top door panel on and lify and pull towards you . careful not to rip the door switch out. it disconects at the controle panel, just unclip it there and set the door / top panel aside.
You should now have a splendid veiw of the location of those suspension straps... They go one to each corner of the basin. if they broke , or what not , they need to be replaced to keep things right .

Try this as a rule out. With your machine off but still plugged in, is is filling with water without a "call" for water on any cycle? If so, does it stop filing when you turn the water off at the hose connection to your house? If yes, then you need a water inlet valve--available at most appliance repair part stores. Repairclinic.com is a great one. If the water stopped when you turned your machine off but left it plugged in, you need a pressure switch. Extremely easy replacements either way. Tools you need are most likely a nut driver/screw driver, a flat string item like a medium flat head screw driver to pop the clips at the front of your washer to get the top off if it has them and maybe a set if needle nose and/or regulat pliars. If you are not mechanically inclined, either of these may take you about an hour. If you are, completing both of them together should be no more than 30 minutes tops. Hope that helps and let us know which one was the culprit or what you find.

We had this problem and these two suggestions were right on the mark. The hose was attached, but stuffed with lint (You have to remove the front cover to get to the bottom hose connection). We detached the hose and used a wooden shish kebab stick to remove the lint from the hose.
Thanks to the gentlemen above for their knowledge and time!
