Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
Our washing machine is overflowing on to the floor. It will work fine sometimes and then it will overflow out of the blue... Can you tell me where I need to start trouble shooting this problem. Sometimes it will stop filling and run a normal wash and then the next time it just keep filling with water and not stop. Its a hit and miss if it is going to stop filling or overflow. If it overflows I can still drain it on the spin cycle.
Thanks for your help. -Jake
Could it be ...this happens only when it is overloaded or the load is out of balance. Please clarify.
If this is not the case .. the water level hose running from the outside tank to the water level switch is likely not making a good seal (otherwise the water level switch itself is bad). Sometimes with age the hose forms a crack in it near or at the end where it connects. This could happen at either end of the hose. Also if you have removed the control panel recently (for any reason) you may have (not knowingly) pulled the water level hose loose from the water level switch. Just slide the hose back onto the tube of the switch before putting the control panel back in place and all will be fine after the first filling of the tub (it may take one filling cycle to build the needed vacuum back up in the hose). Unless of course in the process you have broken the tube off the switch where the hose goes on. In this case replace the switch.

SOURCE: fill will not stop
you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.
try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.
if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.
tnx 4 using fixya,

A washer that over flows in the fill cycle sounds like a faulty pressure switch. Part # WH12X10069 and 10 on this diagram. If it overfills the tub when the washer is off it's a faulty water valve. Best of luck Ryan

try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!

The water level switch is either bad or the tube connected to it is plugged. Tube goes from bottom of tube to switch. Take this off of switch and blow it out. Should solve problem, if not replace water level switch.

On this model of washer you have 4 separate components that could cause overflowing. The water valve, pressure switch, pressure switch hose & the air dome. If you have to turn the water off to prevent overflowing, I would recommend replacing the water valve. If you can turn the timer off & the water stops overflowing, I would recommend checking the pressure switch, hose & air dome.
