Water coming in too slowly to washing machine GE WVSR 1060B3WW

It used to fill up with water pretty fast, as soon as a machine was started. Now it just trickles in. I have had this washing machine for 7 years - is it time to throw it out?

NOOOOO don't junk it unless the transmission goes out. then its easier to buy new.... It sounds like you live in an area that has dirty or hard water. Start with turning off water supply to the washer. Then remove the hoses and check the screens in the hoses and in the water inlets on the washer. If they are dirty clean them. If this doesn't solve the problem then have an appliance tech come and change out your water inlet solenoids. that should fix it. The total fix should only be about 50 bucks in parts and the service call. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My washer seems is filling very slowly, and doesn't empty all the water out of the tub. I tried both temperature settings and it doesn't seem to matter. It will fluctuate back and forth on how fast it...


regarding your filling problem , most washers have small screen filters at the water intake, take your hot and cold hoses of of your machine and observe the fittings on the machine you will likely find the filters there they are just a mesh screen, remove them and clean , then reassemble this should solve your slow filling problem

Slow water delivery into machine


Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.

Q - My washer fills slowly with water, what can I do ?
A - Two things could be your problem...
1) - sometimes the screens in the fill valve or inside the ends of the fill hose get clogged up...use a tooth brush to clean them out. Don't forget to shut off the water first before removing the hoses to check for this.
2) - The fill valve itself may not be opening fully = time for a new fill valve.

Agitator always moving


The inner tub on some machines does rotate very slowly while filling to assist with the even distibution of the load. If the agitator is turning back & forth while in fill mode, you could have a timer or transmission problem. You need a tech.
