Question about Washing Machines
Washer has never put enough water in for a full load of laundry. Small size load you get half a tub and runs for almost 9 min. any other load size puts in less that half and runs for a shorter amount of time. The ge repair guy stated my water pressure was too low, that I needed 20psi. So we had new water lines run to the upstairs and the house pressure switch is 35psi. (I am on well water). The repair guy came back and ordered a new pressure switch for the washer as I new there was one and mentioned it the person on the phone. The third time a guy came and replaced the switch it did not make a difference in how much water ran into washer.. Any other ideas would be great.. I really hate having to babysit the washer because of having to add water with both the wash and rinse cycles..

Check would be your water inlet valve. Check it for continuity with a multi meter it should show Ohms or a closed circuit. To test it when water is overflowing unplug the unit and see if it still overflows or continues to fill. If it stops when unplugged. Then it is not a water inlet problem but an electrical signal problem going to ur water inlet valve. Possibly from the panel or board. You can also do a live volt test to see if it is getting the full 120 current, but be sure to unplug unit before testing as this is a live test.
Also another trick to check the water valve, is to first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

Check the other knob or switch on top. Perhaps it has some settings regarding small, medium, or large load. This switch may be defective. Go to
www.repairclinic.com for more help on removal and replacement. You can also order a new one from them.

you must unplug the washer for just 1 minute open and close the lid 10 times and plug it back in and put it on a light load cycle and let it wash with empty load. shoul work fine after that
