I fixed my washer by taking off the hose that controls the load indicator switch and blew air into it and it works like a charm, so please don't charge me 20 dollars cause i fixed it myself, thanks

I have a GE washer model GBXR1060T. Some time the water gets over the tub and is spilling on the floor. We have to close the water source valve to stop the water entering in the tub. I see on the side of...

If the water shuts off when you push the timer knob in then the most likely failure is the water level/load size switch or the air tube connecting the air dome and water level switch has developed a hole in it or it may have pulled off from the water level switch. If you have to shut the cold/hot water faucets off in order to stop the water then the water inlet valve has failed open. I added instructions in the image below on how to access the water level pressure switch in the console and how to remove the front panel and raise the top. You will need to inspect the tubing connected to the water level pressure switch and where it connects on the lower side of the outer tub. If you do not find it disconnected or any holes in the tubing, replace the water level switch. richroth_152.jpg

Does this happen on any water level setting, or just on full load? If the machine is overfilling, the centrifugal force at the start of the spin cycle will throw the water up the sides high enough to overflow the top of the tub.

If the machine is overfilling just a little as I suggest, then the water level switch may be out of calibration or the water level hose may be partially clogged at the tub end. A quick fix in the latter case would be to disconnect the hose from the level switch and blow compressed air through it - it's a lot easier to get into the control panel than the side of the tub. A leaky hose would have a similar effect.

I pulled the vacuum hose off of the water fill switch and then put it back on now the washer is overfilling

With the washer empty, pull the hose off at the switch in the control panel. Blow thru it really good to clear any obstructions that may be in the hose or the pressure bulb on the tub. Try to run the machine again on a small load setting. If the machine still overfills, you will need to replace the pressure switch with this part.

Washer will fill but it does not stop

Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.

The washing machine will overflow, flooding water onto the floor. Flooding has happened 8 times, and it attempted to do it about another 5 times (I stand there and watch it and turn off the water supplies...

ive included a solution to a similar problem that i solved earlier this week, i hope you find this helpfull...

I am assuming this is a top load washing machine.... the load size selector button has a hose attached to the back of it. This hose goes down to an overflow box mounted to the side of the tub. This tube often gets clogged and the machine cannot tell where the water level is. 1) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) attach another tube to it and blow into it. you should hear a clicking sound. this means your level selector switch is functioning properly. if it does not click then it needs to be replaced. 2) dissconnect the tube from the level selector switch and ( w/it unplugged ) blow into the tube and you should hear air going into the tub, ( this is best performed with water in the tub ( bubbles ) )....hope this helps

The water does not shut off even after it reaches the proper level it continues to run and it overfills and leaks out the bottom of the washer the clear hose is not clogged and we blow into it we can hear...

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Check water valve may not be shutting off .
Check water level switch , or hose going to it from tub must be air tight may have pin hole in it.
Water level switch is the one that says small , medium or large on some washers.

Occasionally it will overfill

The water level switch is your problem.
Open the control panel and remove the plastic hose from the level switch and blow through it.
Soap and dirt clog the bottom end and prevents the switch from stopping. The water continues to flow because of this blockage.
After you reattach the plastic hose , set the washer to spin and turn it on to reset the switch.
