Don't get rid of that machine. Those can last 30 years easily, and the stuff you get today cannot compare. You got a bad seal going from the basket to the outside tub. If left go, the motor eventually will short out. You will need to remove the adgitator first, by pulling up hard on it. Then grease the spline before you put it back. A 13mm metric socket (12 point) to take out the bolts holding down the basket. That rubber boot you will see in there is about 12" inches across at the bottom, and about 8" at the top, and looks like that funny hat Goober used to wear on Andy Griffith. The bottom band goes to the tub bottom, and the top goes up against the transmission. The clamps are reuseable, and the boot should be less than $30.00.

General Electric Washing Machine want agitate. The washer fills, spins, drains but simply stops agitating or washing during different cycles. I have checked the lid switch, coupling under the agitator and...

The water level switch may be going bad. As the water level rises to the proper level, it switches a set of contacts inside to stop the water fill and cause the machine to start agitation. Make sure machine is empty before you replace the water level switch---it works off of air pressure from a small hose attached to it.

Ge washing machine fills up with water on spin cycle

Sounds like the timer is screwed... Sending out the wrong signals and the dryer is doing the rinse cycle when it should just be the spin cycle. Do t know what your timer looks like in that washer but most now days look like the picture. 11_11_2013_2_52_52_am.png

I asked my wife about this question, before I became to technical and scared you more then you needed to be scared. My DARLING wife told me right away that you are overloading your machine. It occured to me she may have done this a few times herself. Mind you this is 50 years of experience . When you load your machine with to many items the water is displaced and has to go somewhere, it's caming up over the top and causeing your flooding problem. After you clean up and have a few highballs to settle your nerves, you should be OK. My wife and I wish you GOOD LUCK.

Water will not fill during rinse cycle. it does fill when i start the machine but not during rinse cycle.

The rinse cycle only takes cold water so I suspect that you have a bad or maybe clogged water valve on the cold side of valve.hope this helps.

I have a GE model number WHDSR109J8WW washing machine. It works well, but there is a metal on metal squealing sound that occurs during the wash cycle and sometimes the rinse cycle. It works perfectly in...

First you take off the front cover of the Machine that is held in place by two clips at the top. then you look at the bottom of the frame assembly that holds the motor. You will find that when the Machine fills with water and clothes the tub drops way down!! and the frame rubs on the bottom pan of the washing Machine. My machine was new!!! and I made two Pads from the old washing machine feet and put them through the two holes in the frame and put a little grease on them and it works like it should GE your engineers should have seen this!!!!! Thank You FROM K.C.Morris God Bless America
