On the bottom of the freezer door you will find a clear hose. Follow the hose and you wil find a connector. Disconnect it and place on small pan. Activate the water switch on door and see if water comes out. The problem is on the line going from bottom of freezer door up to dispenser. Some models water line is close to extruded door(miss manufacturing) cover and the line freezes over. This is a manufacturing fault from GE and unfortunatelly the whole door must be replaced

Check no ice build up in bottle but the most likely cause is poor water pressure on the inlet. no cure except to improve water pressure. if there is a valve in the input water line, check it is fully open

Soap dispenser door will not open. Regular wash cycle time varying a great deal when machine turned on.


The soap dispenser is probably faulty. Wash times can vary. The main controller will determine the wash time and will change according to water temp when filling, time it takes to fill, etc. Check and make sure the filters at the bottom are clean.

I just bought a washer and dryer that were used and the previous owner was a smoker. Now all my clothes smell like smoke. Any advice the get the smell out of the machine?


Hello, W/D here.

For a single odor, I would recommend a neutralizing sequence. Use one box of baking soda. Fill the soap dispenser as you would with powdered soap, and pour the remainder into the wash tub. Fill the fabric softener and bleach dispenser cups with an odor remover such as Odor-Cide or Febreze. Add 1/2 the normal amount of detergent for a normal load directly into the tub. Run the washer on the hottest, longest cycle available, with the longest, hottest rinse cycle available (usually this is the sanitary cycle). When the cycle has finished, run another sanitary cycle with 2 cups of bleach in the tub, fill the soap dispenser, bleach dispenser and the softener dispenser with bleach also.
After this cycle runs, run another, normal cycle with white vinegar in the tub and dispensers. This can be a normal cycle.
After all of these cycles, one last regular cycle with about 1/2 the normal amount of detergent in the dispenser should get all of the smell neutralized in the machine.

Water left in fabric dispenser after load


Hi,

The dispensers work by the siphon principle. You load the softener and at the proper time, the machine diverts water to the softener cup raising the level. In the softener cup, there is a tube loosely covered with a cap. When the level in the softener cup is raised high enough, a siphon effect is started and the softener is pulled from the cup into the washer. This will continue until the water quits flowing and air gets under tha cap, breaking the siphon. The amount of water remaining in the cup is dependent on the level of the cap, and the amount of residual water remaining in the dispenser fill tube once the siphon effect is broken. You can see this effect for yourself: take a measuring cup and slowly pour water into the softener cup, raising the level above the max line. When the level gets high enough, the contents of the cup will dispense. You can remove the cover cap that is a part of the dispenser and clean it; it will help. Removing the entire tray and cleaning all of the tubes and the cap assembly will also help. The only other thing that can be done is to change the dispensing supply valve, as it sounds like there may be some leak by after the fabric softener is dispensed. Having residual water isn't really hurting anything. It's only water, and the machine has dispensed the softener! Try the cleaning part first as this usually corrects the issue, and then the repair technician if it still bothers you. For as much as the extnded warranty costs, you should be completely satisfied with your machine.
Best regards, --W/D--

Water dispenser suddenly not dispensing water


Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .

Dispenser problems


Open dispenser drawer and push down on center plastic tab at back of dispenser to allow you to take dispenser out of machine. Take the plastic pieces off and clean them. (they need to be clean in order to siphon the bleach, softener, etc out. If there is water left in them, the water fill valve is OK. Cleaning should fix your problem. If you are using concentrated additives, try diluting them a bit with warm water when you add them to the dispenser. Remember, only one tablespoon (max) detergent, one teaspoon (max) fabric softener per load.

Water fills dispensers


A small amount of water left in them is normal but if they are totally filled something is wrong. Do you still have the blue pieces in the bleach and softner cups? If they're missing they will not empty right. You may also have build up in the holes that the liquid should go down that you may have to clean out.

Could SOAP DISPENSER be caked with soap???


POWDERED DETERGENTS GET CLOGGED ALOT IN THOSE DISPENSERS. I ADVISE CUSTOMERS TO FILL THERE WASHER AND ADD SOAP WHEN IT STARTS TO AGITATE WHEN USING MORE THAN A 1/2 CUP OF POWDER ... THEN ADD YOUR CLOTHES ... THE WASHER HAS A SAFTEY SWITCH WILL STOP MOST WASHERS WHEN AGITATING OR IN SPIN CYCLE,SO YOU CAN LOAD CLOTHES ... OTHER THAN THAT ... ALL YOU CAN DO IS KEEP THAT DISPENSER FLUSHED OUT WITH HOT WATER AFTER EVERY WASH. JUST POUR HOT WAYER TROUGH IT ... IF THE WATER BACKS UP (EVEN WITH A SLOW POURING) THE DISPENSER IS PLUGGED AND NEEDS TO BE FLUSHED OUT WITH A HOSE. GOOD LUCK AND STAY DRY !!!
