SOURCE: the machine continually goes through the cycle and

The controller (big round button in the middle) is stuck. If you can't force it to end the cycle (tap on it, move it thru different positions and start the machine for each), then it must be replaced.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Following is pre-typed, saves time - in your case just refer to 'cold' please ;-0)

If you have checked that the hot and cold water taps are turned on fully and the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, it is worth while checking both the hot and cold water inlet filters. Turn the taps off and remove both hoses at the washer end. Inside each inlet port there is normally a little filter which should just slide out. Clean if necessary and replace each one and the hoses. If after turning the taps back on there is no improvement, the problem is symptomatic of a malfunctioning hot or cold water control valve. Sorry but it needs a service call and a check that it isn't the control PCB ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Model 11026955690. Why does screen indicate LP?


I am not familiar with any error code referencing "LP". Could you be seeing "LF"?
Below are the error codes listed for your washer:
  • "LF" (Long Fill) Inlet hoses are kinked or clogged or water valve screens are not clear. (Solution: Straighten inlet hoses or clear screens of any foreign material.)
  • "LD" (Long Drain) Drain hose is kinked or clogged. (Solution: Straighten or unclog hose.)
  • "FF" (Fill Failure) Problem with water level sensing system. (Solution: Call for service.)
  • "OL" (Open Lid) Lid Is open during drain or spin. (Solution: Close lid.)
  • "PF" (Power Failure) Power to washer went off during cycle. (Solution: Press any pad to clear the display. Restart the washer from the beginning of the cycle.)

The water pipes have been freezing up for the past two nights, got them thawed out, and started a load of laundry set on cold. Washer started normal, it made a small click noise as allways, and the water...


Have you taken the hose off of the back of the washer and checked to see if you are getting water to that point. Also check the inlet screen on the fill valve to see if it is clean.. You may need to replace the fill valve. There may be a screen in the inlet of the hose at the shut off valves.....So check both ends of the washer hose..... I would check the hoses first before I would replace the fill valve....Hope this helps

My GE washer will not run a full cycle. It fills up non stop, while at the same time its draining. It was running the cycle and would get stuck on the rinse/spin cycle. But now the knob doesn't even move...


One very slim chance is that the waste water hose does not have an air break in it

The pipe is supposed to be placed into a drain which allows a flow of air to the pipe out of which the water is being pumped

If there is not an air break then the mchine can set up a syphon action which will not allow the unit to fill to the right levels

Quick check is to dump the oulet hose into a sink and run the machine , be sure to secure the pipe in case it slips out and also that the sink can empty fast enough for the water being pumped into it by the washer .

If you are saying that the machine wont stop filling try turning the water off at the fawcet

Washer will not discharge water after wash or rinse cycle


Pump failure. Unit probably has something stuck in pump....the washer eats the socks not the dryer. suggest shope vac to get water out, and then remove hose from pump and check to see if its clear.

Water runs into tub but does not fill?


be sure the drain hose is not lower than the wash tub this will caust the water to run out, 2nd be sure the drain hose is not pushed to far into the house stand pipe and the there is rome for air to go inbetween the drain hose and stand pipe eather of these will cause the machine to siphon mostly on rince cycle or on the 2nd and third loads you do. last your house drain could be starting to back up fill the washer with water and listen to it drain if you hear a gurggling sound in the house pipe you may need a plumber to cleanthis out for you.

remove the bottom panel below tha door. youll see the drain pump in the center,fronr of washer. there is a black hose going from the pump to the bottom of the tub. remove that hose. at the end of the hose there is a plastic ball that is supposed to seal the end of the hose. more than likely there is lint build up on the ball or around where the ball seal. clean the ball and the hose and reinstall. you should be fine after that
