GE washer GTWN4950LOWS does not fill high enough to clean thouroughly

I have a less than 2 year old GE Washer (GTWN4950LOWS) HE top loader washer. Yes I did the go green thing, Bought both the HE gas dryer and the HE top loader washer. Well the dryer is a charm. THe washer on the other hand seems to have a major battle with clothes no matter which cycle or load size. things come out not so clean and totally twisted in knots. I've tried all different combination of load size and cycle. I've asked the store I bought the pair from If this is how these new HE machines work and was told: "YES it's a result of the low water aspects" I though maybe the water is just too low and I'll do a test. I added about 6 more gallons of water to a MAX load. WOw what a difference! clopthes come out much cleaner ( and lint free) although they still look like they had a Saturday night Brawl. DOes anyone know if the level of the water in this machine can be adjusted? It's a real chore to keep adding buckets of water in the wash cycle.... So much for automatic......

NO,your transmission is probably ok!! Inside your top end of agitator are these 4 plastic parts called "dogs" they need to be replaced.To be 100% sure ,do this first,Fill upthe machine on small load and while its washing look to see if the bottom end of agitator is moving back and forth ,if it is replace the dogs.In some machines you have to change the upper part of agitator.If the agitator is not turning at the bottom than,remove the top of agitator cover so you can get a extended half inch socket in to it and pull the agitator up and check the transmission splines.If they are smooth and cannot grab the agitator than your trans, is bad.

SOURCE: 'test' displayed on washing machine

After pressing different buttons and waiting 10 to 15 seconds after turning the power off, I have finally found the solution.
When you have pressed the "Start/Cancel" button to start your wash programme the LCD shows "test".
You must then press the "Start/Cancel" button which will give you the normal temperature and washing time and then importantly you must depress both the "Start/Cancel" button with the "On/Off" button which will give you a different LCD message and then it will automatically resets itself.

ALL THE BEST!

Put another filter on before the washer. Try to find out if it is in the hot water or the cold. If it is the cold try a filter. If it is the hot, replace your hot water tank.

SOURCE: not enough water in the drum during the washing cycle

If its a High efficiency washer it doesn't use much water. Usually the front load washers are HE washers

Ge toploader whse5240D1WW will not fill with water


please the causes and remedies: God bless you
f your Top Load Washer Has No Water Entering Check The Following

Water Inlet Valve
First check the hoses that connect to the water inlet valve. Remove these completely there should be a screen in at least one end and maybe both ends. Clean these screens. Next check the back of the water inlet valve screens and remove and clean. If cleaning these out does not correct the problem you will need to check to make sure you have power going to the water inlet valve. Most top loaders will have 120 volts going to the valve. Check each solenoid on the valve. You will need to have the washer on and turned to a fill cycle when checking. If you have power and still no water replace the water inlet valve. No power replace the control.

Control / Timer

This is less likely the problem but can fail. If you have no power going to the water inlet valve when selecting a fill cycle the timer/ control has failed and you will need to replace the timer.

My clothes smell! Less than one year old GE front load!


That happened to me too. Check for mold and mildue around the inside seal, if you find anything BLACK, clean it up. Also, pull out the drawer where the laundry detr is and clean it as well. Also, when the washer is not in use keep the door open, this will cut down on the mold and mildue.

My washing machine has had a high-pitched noise when it fills with cold water ever since we moved to a new house. This doesn't happen when it is filling with hot (or even warm) water. We've tried turning...


Are you sure you have the hot pipe on the hot inlet and the cold on the cold inlet ie red to red black to black (easily done), please check carefully. if OK then I think you have picked up some dirt in the inlet filter and this will need to be removed and cleaned,remove lid and follow pipes inside to plastic tank at top near drawer, filter housing can be seen there.

Ge profile top loader "fill" knob broken


If it came off cleanly no, but if the glue they sometimes use has a piece unattainable to your grasp, then yes.
