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.
But frst...

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!

My GE washer wont stop filling in any cycle. Even if you pull out the plug. Leaks everywhere. I blew into water level switch hose and it clicks. Model number WBXR1060T. Thank you


If water continues to fill and you have unplugged the washer from the wall then your fill valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced. Turning off the water at the wall faucet should stop the water. The fill valve is what the hoses are attached to at the washer.

pop open the front. Check the little 1/4 in hose going to the side of the tub. It may have gunk build up inside it blocking air flow. Its the pressure hose that tells your water level switch how much water is in the washer. Clean it out as well as the port it attaches to.

Washer tank will not hold water


You can remove the front panel by using a putty knife to push in on the two clips in the seam at the top of the front panel. Your model number is most likely on the sticker on the very back edge of the washer, as you look over the back of the washer.

Humming and not filling?


had the same problem this morning, turned out the pump on the drain side had frozen, took it apart, and broke free the fan, humming stopped, washer back up and working.  Its two screws to the bottom of the washer, two electrical connection (white and black) two hoses to undo, and three screws on the pump itself, after actually committing to doing it, only took about 10 minutes.

good luck

Washing machine doesn't respond to the low, medium or high water settings and keeps filling. Spin and drain cycle works. Won't stop filling and doesn't go into the wash cycle.


My GE WSM2780DAWW stack set dryer and washer was encountering the same problem (water kept filling up not stopping). I saw this page, but the SOLUTION described didn't really draw a picture for me.

Here's how I fixed the leaking washer. Sitting in front of the washer I removed two small screws on the bottom left and right of the front panel. Then sliding the front panel DOWN, it comes off. This allows a view into the machine. Around the LEFT side of the wash basin you will find a white tube. This tube is about the diameter of a pencil. My tube was not attached, and when the wash basin filled up past the point where it should stop, water came out. Reaching around the side of the wash basin with my left hand I could feel where the white tube was supposed to connect properly. Then I attached the white tube. This fixed the problem.

I left the front panel off for a day to make sure it didn't continue to leak and also for the area to dry out.
