Question about GE WSM2700D Top Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

Open Question

Washing machine keeps filling with water and overflows on floor

I have a GE stackable Model# WSM2700DAWWW. The washer fills with water and floods the house. When I push the knob in, the water will turn off but the only thing I can get it to do is drain and spin out. The water level knob does nothing. I even turned it to the low water level and it still just keeps filling and runs onto the floor. It will not agitate at all. When I do turn it to the spin cycle, the water will turn off and the machine will spin the water out but that is all. Somebody PLEASE help me.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Stackable washer continues to fill with water when unit is off

If the machine continues to fill even after the power has been switched off, this sounds like a stuck inlet valve. To identify the valve, look at your model in the "parts store" section of Maytag's website. The valve is item 21 on the "Control Panel, Top & Lid" drawing. From the drawing, the valve looks like a fairly standard item; I suspect you might get something suitable a bit cheaper elsewhere. A

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.

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- -!

Check water valve may not be shutting off .
Check water level switch , or hose going to it from tub must be air tight may have pin hole in it.
Water level switch is the one that says small , medium or large on some washers.

SOURCE: The washing machine will overflow, flooding water

ive included a solution to a similar problem that i solved earlier this week, i hope you find this helpfull...

"
I am assuming this is a top load washing machine.... the load size selector button has a hose attached to the back of it. This hose goes down to an overflow box mounted to the side of the tub. This tube often gets clogged and the machine cannot tell where the water level is. 1) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) attach another tube to it and blow into it. you should hear a clicking sound. this means your level selector switch is functioning properly. if it does not click then it needs to be replaced. 2) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) blow into the tube and you should hear air going into the tub, ( this is best performed with water in the tub ( bubbles ) )....hope this helps
Asker's Testimonial " Thanks rdrsp. When I took the control panel off, I found that the tube had fallen off the control valve. I put it back on with a band clamp. " - bill_marv460 "

Water keep filling til machine overflow and need to turn of water inlet valve


if you have to shut off the water supply valve of the residence (water keeps flowing after turning off the washing machine or unplugging the washer), the failed component is definitely a stuck open water inlet valve (fill valve) of the appliance. If the water stopped by pushing the timer or unplugging the machine, another internal electrical control related problem exists, such as a faulty timer assembly or controller board, or a pressure system failure (water level detection/monitoring system) - failed pressure switch (rare), clogged air hose or tub air dome (common in GE top-load washers), disconnected air hose (common in frigidaire top load washers & GE/Frigidaire/Kenmore stacked washer/dryer combo units).

While a simple repair can be done by yourself for a failed inlet valve, usually for $25-$50 in parts/shipping (go to searspartsdirect.com or appliancepartspros.com to look up a replacement fill-valve using your washing machine model number), the water damage potentially caused by the flooding is more important to address.

I recommend contacting your insurance company if there's a bunch of water that flooded your home - the water can cause delayed warping of flooring or cause mold to grow in/beneath your carpets and walls if the water was not immediately noticed and cleaned up (within first few minutes of flooding) - they send out water remediation specialists to dry (if possible), or to repair the damage to your home.

Washing machine does NOT stop filling w/ water!


If the m/c keeps filling, where is the water going ??? if the m/c doesnt reach the required water level it will not start, check the drain hose at the back, make sure its at least 24" above floor level, if it lower then it will just empty as quick as you fill it on gravity.

Another flood. GE washer


The water sound is normal. There is a solution in the top of inner tub for balance. Is it overflowing...as in not stopping the fill cycle? If so check to make sure small hose is still attached to outer tu at bottom left front. This dome that it connects to can become filled with scum and causes the unit to not know that it's full. This causes flooding. You can try removing hose and cleaning out with thin wire. Sometime only fix is to replace outer tub. Again, this is only if overflowing!!
Another possibility is a bad break allowing outer tub to spin in agitation. This throws water up over sides of tub. Monitor unit when agitating to see if outer tub picks up speed and starts to spin. It is normal for it to index.
