Question about GE Washing Machines

1 Answer

My ge wash machine wbsr1060t2ww will fill with water but then does nothing

It stops at the correct level. i've changed the timer, same thing. Lid switch has continuity when closed, pump can operate if I by pass timer and supply power directly. selecting different settings doesn't help. still doesn't help. could it be the start relay? how do you check the pressure switch?

You have a bad lid switch. If the lid switch or lid switch circuit is open the motor is not going to run. Trace the lid switch wires and look for any breaks or loose connections. If that circuit is good, then you have a bad capacitor on the motor circuit or the motor is bad. Here is a link to the motor kit should you need it.

you know, it sounds not like a mechanical issue. Sounds like your control circuitry is off kilter..

SOURCE: Washing machine end

My suggestion is to go get a new door switch for your washing machine.

Secondly, open up the front of the machine (you will need to take the top of it off.). In front of the washingmachine you will see two big hoses. One is your washer tub inlet valve, and the other is your exhaust valve. When you disconnect this, be aware that you will get a whole tub of water onto your floor so be prepared.

There is two snaps that holds the pump that these hoses are attached to. (Make sure your power supply is disconnected.

Look inside of the pump. The other day we had someone's wire to a bra, stuck in it, and that caused the pump to lock up the machine. I had to remove the wire and put the pump back on.

If you have the pump off, and can plug the machine back in safely, turn it on, you might hear the motor spin. If it does, put the pump on after you clear it of debris. Make sure the snaps are on snug like it supposed to. Put your hoses back on properly. If it is off a small amount, water will drip.

assemble your machine back together and see if this works. If not, a service tech will need to come out to see what is the problem besides this.

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- -!

SOURCE: Samsung Washing Machine won't start

Your program controller unit is working but it must be ensured that there is output on every cycle to the desired output controls. So the inlet valve must work and the motor must run when the water level is triggered by the level controller. So use a meter to check before we can suspect the controller.

Bosch washing machine starts filling with water, then does nothing, timer counts down but no movment


have a technician check it out as it may be a board problem
normally the fill level switch ,when the set water level is reached activates 2 things
it stops the water in and at the same time moves the program on to start the wash cycle
so it is either that switch or the program board

Washing Machine not stopping water flow


in the back of the machine attached to the bowl is a small tube that goes up to the controller in the dash panel. This tube should be straight with no kinks or pinch points. This is pitote tube and conveys pressure to the controller diaphragm that connects to a micro switch that turns the water off and the machine on. As the water rises the air trapped in the tube increases in pressure and pushes on the diaphragm. Sometimes if there is water trapped in the tube it stops working You control the pressure that the diaphragm works at by the water level you select

Washer will fill but it does not stop


Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.

GE wcxr1070a washing machine. fills with water


Check the water level switch and the plastic tubing to the switch.
Sometimes soap scum stops up the plastic hose and the water level switch does not close to send power to the timer.
If the plastic hose is good and the water level fills and stops replace the water level switch.
