Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

GE WWSE5200B1WW Top Load washer will not fill or agitate


Hi Scoti

I would start with water level pressure switch. It regulates how much water goes into washer and also stops overfilling..It may be defective and thinks washer is already full( hence no water and automatic drain spin) P#WH12X10093
Second thing to try is unplugging the washer for 15 min and letting all the voltage leave the control board. At this time you will reset the washer to default factory settings in case there was a computer glitch..

Good Luck

Water keeps running in i have got to cut water off to spin dry


There is an electrically controlled water valve for both hot and cold water on the back of the washer, do both settings not shut off? if it is just the cold pull the washer out and replace the cold water solenoid water valve.

No hot water into washer


In your problem you describe that you are getting hot water are you getting cold water too?. Make sure on the water valves are on the full open setting to eliminate a water pressure diffrence and any other valves connected to those water lines. If that checks out check for clogs in the hoses and filters that could be backed up. If that dosent fix the problem then its in the washer either the hot/ cold regulators or the timer.

GE washer won't fill with cold water


Cold water pipe had become frozen. FYI this model of washer has a nice feature whereas you can test each component i.e. valves, by setting the timer and reading the LED's on the front panel. Instructions are in the schematic.

Washer is most likely trying to fill with cold rinse water and the inlet screen is blocked or the cold water solenoid is bad. If you set washer to wash cold only it will not fill or fill very slowly. When you set it to warm or hot you are getting almost all hot. Clean inlet screen or replace inlet water valve.
