Tub is filling with water, when the washer is not running.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot or cold water one if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
If yours is hot and cold fill discover which one by turning one of the feed taps/fawcets off and if the water stops, it's that one!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Here are some solutions.


Hope this helps you...Jim...Please leave a comment...Thanks!
LEAKS ALL THE TIME Is your GE washer leaking all the time, even when not in use? If so the problem is the fill hoses or the valve. Look behind the washer to see if water is coming from the hoses. If not, take the cover off to the control panel. Once off, you should see if the water valve and if there is leakage - it needs replacing (if it is leaking). This is the most popular water valve for GE top-loading washers made after 1995 and the part number is WH13X86 Order Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10. Note that some models have a water valve with more than two coils. In this case, you will need to order the valve by model number at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 Buy Fill Hoses Here. show?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.1&type=10
LEAKS DURING FILL CYCLE Is your GE washer leaking during the fill cycle? If so the problem may be in the valve. Follow instructions above, only this time start the fill cycle before looking at the valve.
If your washer overflows with water during fill cycle your problem is the water level control or the water valve. If you must cut the water off from the house plumbing to stop the water then there is no need for testing, just replace the water valve. First, you need to turn on the washer. The washer should start to fill with water, now cut the washer off and on repeatedly (note to yourself whether the water turned off every time). If it does cut off every time you cut the washer off, then it's most likely in the water level control. If it keeps running after you cut the washer off then, the water valve is bad and needs replacing. (Note that the valve can stick intermittently so it still may be bad if it passed the test) Water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
If the water valve doesn't stick in the first test then you need to check the water level control. First, remove the front of washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front pushing on the clips) then look on the side of the tub and you should see a tube attached to a box. Remove the tube (make sure all the water is out of the tub) look in the tube to see if is stopped up. Often it will stop up near the end. If it is, you can clean it out with a toothpick. Once it's clean, reinstall it and your washer is fixed. If the tube is not stopped up reinstall the tube. Now set the water level control on the lowest setting and start filling the washer with water. If the water stops when the tub is approximately half full (this varies with every model) turn it up to the next level (you may have to reset it). Repeat until the tub is full. If at any the water level gets above the last row of holes in the tub, unplug the washer. If the water stops running when you unplug the washer, replace the water level control. If the water doesn't stop, turn the water off at the wall then replace water valve. Water level contorls and water valves can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0 . LEAKS DURING WASH Is your GE washer leaking during wash? If so the problem is the tub seal (seals around the transmission where it goes through the tub), drain hoses (including the tub to pump hose) or the pump. First take the front off the washer (insert butter knife between the top and the front, pushing on the clips) then start the fill cycle. Now start watching until you see a leak. If the leak is coming from the tub seal, the transmission needs to be replaced (note that changing the transmission is expensive and takes special tools, so you may consider replacing the washer). If the leak is coming from the drain hose or the pump you need to replace it. If you don't see it leak at all, your soap may be the problem. To check this fill the washer with water and the amount of soap you normally would use. Then start the washer and watch the tube coming from the left back of the tub (the overflow pipe). If soapsuds come out of the overflow pipe then try cutting down on your soap or switch to another brand. This may fix your problem. These parts can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.comshow?id=6bjnatppuce&bids=92089.10000015&type=3&subid=0
LEAKS DURING PUMP OUT Is your GE washer leaking during pump out? If so the first thing you should look at is the drainpipe (to your house plumbing). Fill the washer with water, and then turn it to spin and start it. Now while it's pumping, look at your drainpipe if water backs out (it may not back unless you have soap in the tub), then the problem is in your plumbing. If it doesn't, follow the same steps as above in "leaks during wash." Only this time watch for leaks during pump out as well.

Kenmore top load washer 29822800 - washer-selector is set on one rinse- when machine starts the agitator starts immediately as water fills - then when machine stops after spin cycle in off position water...


if you are saying that the washer finishes the load of clothes and timer goes to off and water is filling the tub after this then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer.disconnect the water lines and change out the valve

Wont stop filling up with water


1. if the water is not flooding the floor, then you have a drain hose siphoning problem. raise or loop the drain hose up in the back of the machine higher than the highest water level of the machine.

2. if water is flooding the floor and the only way to stop it is to shut it off at the fawcet then the water valve is bad and needs replacing

My GE washer will not run a full cycle. It fills up non stop, while at the same time its draining. It was running the cycle and would get stuck on the rinse/spin cycle. But now the knob doesn't even move...


One very slim chance is that the waste water hose does not have an air break in it

The pipe is supposed to be placed into a drain which allows a flow of air to the pipe out of which the water is being pumped

If there is not an air break then the mchine can set up a syphon action which will not allow the unit to fill to the right levels

Quick check is to dump the oulet hose into a sink and run the machine , be sure to secure the pipe in case it slips out and also that the sink can empty fast enough for the water being pumped into it by the washer .

If you are saying that the machine wont stop filling try turning the water off at the fawcet

Will not fill up with water, sounds like there is water in it when it spins and stops, but it will not dump water in at any point, and the clothes stay dry It's only 2 months old.


When you first start the machine you should hear water running into the drum if you dont hear that and it is a cold fill only machine the fill valve or the programmer has failed
Both of which are covered by the warranty

If it cannot fill it cannot drain ?

Test of that would be to open the door manually and put a couple of buckets of water into the machine, close the door and advance the machine to a spin cycle, if the pump is working it should discharge the water if it does not drain you have a blockage in the pump as well

One thing to check is that your water supply to the machine is adequate, to do that you need to disconnect the hose at the back making sure it is turned off at the fawcet and holding a cloth underneath the nut as you undo it.

Put the end into a bucket and turn on the fawcet slowly (Make sure you do not lose the sealing washer which is inside the nut).

If there is a good supply of water then put it back together again and call out the service guy from the maker

Water leak from front load washer - Frigidare GLTF1240A


just remove bolts, open bit enough to fill with silicone, close back wait to dry, ready to go for couple more years.

Water doesnt stop over fills the tub


Most washers have a pressure switch in the control panel that controls the water level. A plastic or rubber tube connects from the bottom of the tub to the pressure switch. The washer will fail to stop filling if the tube comes loose or develops a leak. The other possible problem is that the pressure switch is defective.
