    Thank you very much for taking the time to respond to our problem. Would the water valve you suggest replacing be the same as the "water level switch" shown in the parts diagram?

    No. The water inlet valve is the valve the water hoses connect to.

Fridge's water dispenser continues to run


Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Neither your ice maker or water dispenser work off your main control board.

There is only one reason that the ice maker will not fill and you water dispenser does not shut off immediately after the contact switch disengages.

Your problem is low water pressure. You have a bad water valve.
After time the water valve seals fail, metal form the water line or corrosion plugs the water supply valve. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to shut off the water dispenser solenoid valve and at least 60 PSI to open the ice maker water valve and fight the long fill tubing resistance.


Check - Pull your unit out where you can get behind it. Turn power off to your unit. Turn the water valve off. With towels under the unit water connection and a large bucket ready, disconnect the water supply line. With the water valve shut off you will probably get a steady stream of low water flow. The valve is bad. If not, open the water valve with the water line in the bucket. Is the water flow 60 PSI? Probably not.

Use a hair dryer to completely dry the solenoid valve and electrical area before you plug your unit back in

You need to replace the valve.

Before you do the above. Just in case you move your unit check for a bend or closure in the water line.

GE Super Capacity Plus won't stop filling


Does it stop if you stop the cycle or do you need to turn the valve off?

12. (00001100) Phase 1 to 6 - Flood Protection Error
The Motor Controller module has found the water level to be above the flood level
and tried to pump the excess water out. (Under extremely high flow rate conditions
the machine may overfill during the "top-up" routine in agitate.) After pumping for
30 seconds, it has been unable to lower the water level below the flood level. Either
the water valves have stuck on and are letting water in at a flow rate that is higher
than the pump can handle, or the pump is blocked and can't remove the excess
water.
Primary Source: Water Valves.
Action:
If the water valves are on continuously, check that the water valves turn off
mechanically (remove power from machine).
Secondary Source: .Pump system
Action:
Check pump for blockage and drain hose for correct height and kinking
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module. (Display Module Phase 1)
Action:
If water valves are being driven on electrically, replace Motor Controller
module. (Display Module Phase 1)

Does not stop filling with water


A machine that overfills or underfills can often have a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water. Make sure there is no damage to or obstruction in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Intermittent water on floor


Check the inlet valve hoses, even if inlet is at the back, the water may drip down and flow on the front part on the machine. There you also have the PUMP, a faulty pump may leak intermittently.

Intermittent water flow interupted by solenoids pulsing


I've got the same problem. If I pause the cycle, wait about 10 seconds, and then resume, the water starts normally. I suspect the Cold Water Inlet Solenoid is sticking, probably due to water sediment in the solenoid causing it to stick. I'll try cleaning it and then replace if that doesn't help and let you know what happens.

The water does not shut off even after it reaches the proper level it continues to run and it overfills and leaks out the bottom of the washer the clear hose is not clogged and we blow into it we can hear...


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.

Warning light 'FL' is on...water will not flow out and the cycle will not continue. there's a little hum from the motor but no spinning or water flow action.


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.
