Question about Washing Machines

Water doesn't stop filling when selector switch is on Super (GE)

When the water selector switch is on Super, the washing machine overflows and water is all over the floor.  I'm assuming that the water selector switch is bad or is there an adjustment screw on the switch to make it fill to the right level?  I currently have the front panel/top panel and control center off to look at problem and it looks like the only water that was coming out was from the overflow tube onto the floor.   Please let me know if I can fix this by adjusting something or replacing the Water Level Switch. 

 

The tube connected to the water level switch doesn't appear to have any water or air in it although I haven't disconnected it for any reason yet.  It fills to the right level on Small and Large Selector Settings.  Again let me know.

Many time this is caused by rice clogging the unit.

In the begining of was the water won't stop filling, it overflows and it won't go to the wash cycle (adjetate) however I can turn it to the rinse cycle and it will drained and spins?


Possible that the water level sensor has failed.Shut down washer and trace the sensor which is a pressure activated switch from the drum overflow. the switch can be activated by blowing and checking continuity. if so replace the unit

I HAVE A GE WASHER THAT FILLS WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. DOESN'T MATTER WHAT SIZE LOAD, IT CONTINUES TO FILL WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. IT STOPS WHEN I HIT THE STOP/PAUSE BUTTON.


There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

Gcxrpo9odoww GE washer .. On fill up, it over flows onto floor?


Fill switch could be bad, or fill tube could be plugged making water not stop and it keeps filling. The fill tube goes from fill load selector switch to bottom of tub. Remove from top and blow it out. If this doesnt work replace water load size selector switch.

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 WJRR4170 washer comes out of overflow tube on super load. It does not on Large load size. I have the front off and can see a large difference in water level from large to super size. Is this adjustable?


I have a 2005 model GE washer that would overfill only on SUPER size load. After looking around on the web, then inside the machine, I checked the tube from the tub to the switch, no problem there. Then I found an adjustment screw on the load size selector / pressure switch (all one piece). I moved it one turn clockwise, then ran a test cycle. I got lucky on the first try... no more overflow, the water comes up just above the top holes in the tub. I hope this will help others.

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.
