i had the same problem and found a piece of trash in my valve. The valves are controlled by a solenoid and are very sensitive.

SOURCE: Washing Machine won't stop filling up

Try resetting your water level control. If that doesn't help then set the water level control to the lowest setting and observe if level exceeds that setting. If so, you may possibly have a faulty water level control, or an obstruction in the air dome or water level control hose. This can be a tricky 1 to diagnose for a novice.

SOURCE: Washing machine fills in the water but does not start the wash cycle

The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.

See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."

However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.

A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.

Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.

More likely you will have to replace the timer.

See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water."

  • You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

    SOURCE: fill will not stop

    you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.

    try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.

    if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

    How do I fix washing machine to finish emptying during rinse and spin cycle?


    Long shot, but does it fill the same as when new? I would check the atmospheric switch which is a hollow tube that runs down the inside of the drum(not in the wash cage) when the water fills, It pushes air up to stop the fill. It may have gotten clogged. Or partially clogged.

    If you have pressed start or pulled out the knob of the cycle unit and nothing happens I would be checking the operation of the water inlet solenoid . If it is not getting power or it is not opening the valve to allow filling to commence there will be no further action of the machine until the tub is filled to the desired level.

    Washing machine sticking in middle of rinse and spin part of cycle


    If your machine is stopping at the rise cycle, then you have a faulty cold water inlet valve/solenoid.

    To verify this, turn off your hot water tap and only leave the cold water on. Put your machine on a cold water cycle. If the machine does not fill up, it means the valve/solenoide needs to be replaced.

    Also note if you had water left in the tank prior to rise cycle commencing, then the drain pump is blocked.

    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

    GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.


    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- -!

    GE wcxr1070a washing machine. fills with water


    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.
