Question about GE WJSR2070B Top Load Washer

Washer fills and drains repeatedly

When I start my washer it fills about half way and then drains and then immediately refills so that it is constantly running water but never getting full enough to start washing clothes. Anyone know how to fix this?

Have a look at the routing of your drain hose. It sounds a bit as if: a. The highest point of the hose isn't high enough (you normally want to aim for about 3 feet off the ground) - so that water starts draining from the machine before it is finished filling. and b. There isn't an effective air break or anti-siphon valve where the drain hose goes into the domestic drainage system - so that once the machine starts to drain by itself, it continues until empty. A.

    After a moment's further thought, before attempting the above have a listen to the machine while it's misbehaving.

    My earlier recommendation only really applies if you can't hear the drain pump switching on and off in time to the filling and emptying.

Will not hold water ,when filling it just drains out


I just had this problem also. The reason I was having this problem was that I was letting the draining hose run into my bath tub to drain. Because of this the water was immediately draining out of the washer. So I had to hook the draining hose onto my bathroom sink to drain. By raising the hose higher,the washer filled up with water and worked just fine. Hope this helps.

Washer fills up with water than immediately the water drains to half full. Any idea what causes this?


HI. The drain hose might be too low, thus, creating a siphoning effect. Make sure the drain hose is at least three feet above the floor.This should correct the issue.

Just rehook the clear tube back onto the air dome (back right side of drum), drain any water from the drum, the refill, pressure switch will reset itself. Start to fill on small load size first, then move up when washer starts to be sure it reset all the sizes.

Running water


Sounds like your stand-pipe has fell over,located behind machine that the drain hose goes into.This pipe must be vertical,and secure.The top of the washers drain hose loop that goes into the stand-pipe, should be as high as your soap dispenser.If this is not the problem then your water pump must be pumping the water out all the time.Can you hear the pump? If so, some faults can force the washing machine into a constant cycle of filling with cold water and pumping the water away if it thinks the washing machine is overheating (possible faulty thermistor).Hopefully its only your stand-pipe causing the loss of water.Lets know how you get on.Good luck.
