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!

Wont stop filling


im not expert but i had same problem twice, i almost hire some one to come look at it but was charging me $50 just to do so, ridiculous huh, then i just started to ask around, opened the washer front panel, no idea what i was looking at, searched on the internet and boom, gave me answers and videos of possibles causes and solutions...and i didn't have to expend a penny, so here my solution, i have a GE washer but most washers have this same system for stop the filling process, on the tank (at least on mine) you'll see a little box on the right connected to a small hose that goes up and around to the washer switches panel, at the box i disconnected the hose and happened to be plugged with dirt and grease (my bad since i have been washing my work coveralls , big mistake lol) so, i disconnected it both sides cleaned inside with anti grease and blow in it (seems like stopping the auto filling works when in the little box on the side it gets filled and the air pressure goes into the hose to the switch and triggers the stop and start the washing cycle) the second time i had problems it flooded the laundry room because didn't stop filling , so i did the same but this time i only disconnected the hose at the box end and with the filling going i blow into the hose, didn't stop, cleaned the end of the hose and tried again and this time when i blow into the hose the pressure got to the switch and stopped the filling and started the washing cycle....so, try and follow my example and you will save a lot of money trying before you hire some one else to do it for you, specially when most of the time are simple little thing you can fix by yourself with only doing a little research, good luck and hopefully i could help with your problem :) (look for videos at youtube)

Water want stop filling....agitation won't proceed


Either the water level hose is blocked or the switch is bad . If this model is made by GE ( the front panel will remove by pushing in on tabs between top and front and pulling front out ) then you will find the clear hose on the left hand side of tub is blocked where it attaches to the bellows. Pull off and clean out. Make sure tub is empty first.

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.

My washer is leaking from the bottom. I took the bottom panel off and found a black hose that is not attached to anything. When the washer is filling up the water is leaking out of this hose and all over...


if the hose is comming off the bottom of the tub, it will usually connect to the pump
if its the one afte the pump it may connect to the inside back wall, where your drain hose is

WASHER WILL NOT STOP FILLING


Here are a couple of things you can check to hopefully get to the bottom of your problem....

First of all, try unplugging the washer. Is the water still entering the washer? If so, you should replace the water valve, as it appears it may be stuck open. It's the plastic piece where the water lines are attached to the washer.

If this is not the case, then there may be a problem with your water level control. It's a fairly simple apparatus usually located inside the panel. You'll be able to identify it by a small hose (about 1/4 inch or so in diameter) connecting it to the basin. Check and make sure the hose is attached and isn't broken or pinched. If so, the washer isn't aware the water level has risen to it's pre-set level and like the Little Engine That Could, it will keep filling. :(

If the hose is attached, another little trick to use is to disconnect the hose from the basin, turn the washer on, and while the water is filling the machine, blow gently into the hose to try and trip the switch. If nothing changes and the water doesn't stop filling, the problem may lie in the water level switch itself.

I hope this helps! :) Let me know if I can be of further assistance!

Water leak


it sounds like the bleach fill line. at the top of the washer is a bleach fill cup, it might attach to it. this black bleach fill line attaches to the bleach fill cup to the bottom of the tub.

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.
