Question about GE Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a GE Model WHDRR418GOWW washing machine. On the extra large and super load setting, water will come from the flood tube mounted on the side of the tub. The water level switch checks out good and the tube that goes to the switch is clear. what would cause the water level to be high enough to spill over into the tube. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Sincerely, Denis

GE profile washer wont fill all the way with water. Can only wash 2 pants and 2 shirts and its set on extra large load.


A lid switch doesn't regulate water capacity and if the lid switch fails, the machine will not execute a complete wash cycle. If the washer functions but only at partial water fill for the selected load level... then the problem is likely a clogged pressure switch tube or a malfunctioned pressure switch. Got mine used online - fixed the very same issue.

WATER COMING OUT FLOOD TUBE ON GE TOP LOAD WASHER MODEL WLRE4500GOWW WHATS WRONG DOES IT ON AGITATE AT HIGHEST WATER LEVEL


Take off the front panel by inserting a putty knife in the clips between the top cover and the front panel. Once the front panel is off you will see a clear box on the side of the tub with a clear tube running from it. Take off the tube and make sure the tube and where it attaches are not clogged with junk. Use a bobby pin or paper clip to clear it out. This is what makes sure the tub fills to the proper level. It is probably over-filling because that tube is clogged. Once the water level is lower, the water won't come down the flood tube.

What is the purpose of the flood hose? we have a ge wjsr2080t2ww washer. when we use the power wash cycle in super capacity mode as a minute after it starts agitating the water comes flooding out from...


the purpose of that tube so it anywater that comes out of it goes through it and directs the water down the back and away from the motor. Now the bigger issue is why is water coming through that tube.What i suspect the reason of that is that the transmission is defective and the break is that internal to the transmission is slipping so the inner tub turns during the wash cycle force water up the side of the tub into that tube.during the agitate cycle the tub is not suppose to move at all and stay locked into place,but instead its moving where the water is forced up by centrifical force too and out the top of the tub cover,if it leaks with only a small water load it will leak worse with a large water load. if this is what is happening and the tub is rotating on agaitate cycle teh fix for that is to replace transmission which in most cases cost as much as replacing the washer would be

Washer agitates so vigorously water sloshes out of the overflow tube on large,extra large and super cycles. Tub slams back an forth on agitate cycle is this normal?


sounds like to much water check diaphram switch this controls the amont of water taken in this is not normal operation also check that the drum dampers are working ok or have not come adrift, when empty if you was to push the drum back and forth you should feel quite a bit of resistance if it moves easly then i would check the dampers

My GE Washing machine appears to be leaking from the bottom


It sounds to me , you need the seal and bearing kit.. It is over 300.00 dollar repair, if it is an old washer I would say go get a new one

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.

Overflowed on Large load size


i think the water level sensor tube got filled when you had it on it's side, then after the first spin and drain cycle, the tube was again cleared out and ready for real action.
