Question about GE WHRE5260E Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washing machine keeps filling with water and won't stop.  We replaced the pressure switch thinking that was the problem but it wasn't.  If we blow into the hose it will stop filling and start agitating.  On the bottom of the hose, it goes into a small box on the side of the the drum.  That box seems to be full of either grease, dirt or a black sock, can't quite tell, how do I get that little box off the side to clean it?  Does it just pull off?  I assume it is sealed on somehow to prevent water leaks.

Don't try to take off box. take the are line if you have small compressor. shoot some air through it. it sounds like dirt clogged it. put a gallon of water in the machein if you hear bubbles the line is free. add some bleach to water and run the rinse cycle and it should be fixed.

My washer won't stop filling with water


either the pressure hose is plugged with debris from the base of the tub up to the pressure switch or the pressure switch in the upper side area or behind the control panel is bad,follow this small hose from the tub base pressure dome up to a round shaped plastic component usually about 3" diameter,this is your pressure switch,when its filling remove this hose off the tub and blow into the end of the hose off the tub,if the switch is good you will hear a click and the water will stop and the machine will start,then you know hose is blocked

Water won't stop filling


If the water still flows in when the machine is off the inlet solenoid is faulty, if when you push start it fills and keeps filling then the problem will be with either the electronics or the pressure switch.
You really need to get someone who has experience with whirlpool machines to look at it for you.

I bought a top load washing machine model number WF T7239 UL on 05Nov2010. Water sensor does not seem to work. Water just keeps filling up the drum and starts overflowing once filled.


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.



If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

F&P washing machine:GW709 doesn't cut out when filling


could b pressure switch tube is blocked or your control board with the pressure switch attached is faulty. empty water from machine, remove pressure switch hose from control board, blow thru tube to remove any blockages, refit tube. turn on cycle, select low water level, push start, after about 30sec"s push start again, that should stop it filling straight away. if the water stops push start again to continue filling. if it doesnt stop filling after restarting the cycle then it is your control module.if the water doesnt stop filling after the 30 sec stop it is the water valves. by the way what country do u live in because $120 seems to b alittle too expensive. please reply 4 more help.

PRESSURE SWITCH
Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Water inlet valve

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Machine will not stop filling with water Simpson Encore 703 washing machine


Does machine stop filling if you discnnect from power? If it does, the problem lies with timer/control unit, or fault in pressure switch/ tube. Check pressure tube (thin rubber pipe that goes from water level selctor switch to side of outer bowl) for holes- replace if faulty. You can test pressure switch by remove pressure tube from outer bowl and blowing thru tube- you should hear the water level switch click when you blow, and then click again when you release pressure.   If it keeps filling even with power off, you have a faulty inlet valve. If you remove top panel (3 screws along top rear-power off first!!), you will see the inlet valves- one for hot, one for cold. The valve is the thing the inlet hoses screw onto. New valves availble from any good spare parts supplier, relatively inexpensive part. Good luck!!
