GE washer wcvh6600 not filling with cold water

When its supposed to be filling it hums for a few minutes. It seems that after some time, the hot water is coming in to start the cycle but when its time for rinse it just hums and cold water never comes in. I have checked the water flow to the washer and the screens at the inlets which are both clean. I have tried to put the machine in test mode but have not been able to. Its is a bad water supply valve?

well the first thing i would do is take the cold line loose from the washer get a large bucket and open the cold line with the hose off and see what kind of pressure there is if very little need a plumber or in crese your well pump pressure check your screen while you have the hose off if all of this is ok id replace the washer water valves

shut off the water valve,disconnect the hot water hose from the back of the washer,then turn on the water valve to make sure it's not the house water valve first before you start messing with the washer,if the hot water is working correctly then you could have a bad water valve on the washer.let me know what you find

You need to replace the cold inlet valve, I assume the water pressure is o/k.

SOURCE: I have a Miele W1918 washer which has worked

I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

SOURCE: Washer fills with hot water on cold wash or rinse.

typically hot is on the left and cold is on the right at the house faucets but in some cases they are reversed so if filling with a cold setting and the right side supply is hot the plumber reversed the lines when the house was built which while its semi rare has been seen numberous times

I have a GE stackable GUD27GSSJWW - we are on the second one with the same issue. The washer will begin to fill (wash or rinse cycle) and then just stop and the lights start flashing.

It may not be the washer. Have you checked that the filter on the water inlet has not got partially blocked with rubbish from your water. This is a common reason for a fault like this. You will need to remove the washer, remove the water inlet hoses and then remove the inlet filters and clean them. I was given a very expensive washer a few years back that refused to work for the owner who bought a new one. After cleaning the filter, it continued to work for many years after that.

I have a GE HydroHeater front loading washer and it wont fill with water

First make sure water supply is on. Next try just cold OR hot water fill and feel the hose where it connects to the washer. Do you feel a faint buzzing or humming? If yes, you may have a clog in the line. If not, check that power is good to maxhine. If power is good, then control board is suspect and needs to be tested.

My GE front load washer won't dispense water. Model # is WCVH6260FWW. I've checked the water hoses and the trap in front of my washer. When i turn it on it just turns and hums and locks the door like its...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.

Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Washer fills slow only in the rinse cycle

Need a model # to get exact part you will need at rinse most washer go straight cold so I would say water inlet valve if humming sound is present

Washer won't fill with hot water

If you hear a humming, the coil on the water valve is probably OK. On warm, you are getting cold fill only. (hot + cold = warm) Take the hot water supply hose off the machine and look inside where the hose attached to the washer. There should be a screen inside. Remove it and clean it out. Also, check both ends of the supply hose, as sometimes you will find a screened washer in there too.
