Question about GE G.e. Gtwn4950lws He Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Doesn't fill to the proper level to get cloths clean

Ok let's try this post again. My GE HE washer is,let's say, not so hot as it is. I bought it about 1.5 years ago and over that time have been told the fill level is gonna be low and that is normal(from the place I bought the unit. Well the other day after yet another load that had to be washed a second time (before you ask correct load and cycle and all that) to be clean, I decided to try something to if possible to test my theory that although the machine is designed to be low water maybe it is set too low ( assuming there is some setting either physical or computer driven). when the machine filled to it's level and swithced to agitate I added two buckets ( about 4 gallons) of water to the load. all went well and walla, the load came out cleaner than ever. I will say it the laundry looks like it was in a street brawl and was twisted but not as much. Unfortunately the company that sold me the pair of machines does not sell appliance any more ( Boscovs) so I'm stuck there. Does anyone know if there is a setting to set the water level that a service man can change? Is it possible my machine is set too low? If there is such a setting I'll get a repair guy out but don't want to wais $100 bucks to be told this is normal.

SOURCE: GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.

try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!

There is a control that determines fill level. If adjustment of the control does not cause the tub to fill enough, the control may be defective

Washer will not spin at all no code . will drain and tumble back and forth,when it comes time to spin it turns off.


A washing machine is basically a big tub that repeatedly fills with water and then drains, spins to wring clothes dry, and has a device for stirring things up-- either an agitator in the middle of a top-load machine or a rolling drum in the case of a front-loader.
The four cycles that every washer performs are fill, wash, drain, and spin. Though these functions are pretty basic, a number of things can go wrong with them.
There are a number of problems that you can fix quite simply; some issues, however, are better left in the hands of an appliance repairperson.Problems that commonly occur with a clothes washer are discussed in depth below.If your washer doesn't run, be sure it's plugged in and that the receptacle works (the circuit hasn't overloaded). Before working on the washing machine, be sure to unplug it.
To prevent problems, follow good maintenance procedures. Use the right amount of detergent for your washer and your water hardness, make sure the machine is level, and don't overload it for the cycle chosen.

Washing Machine Does Not Fill
If the washer doesn't fill, the water inlet screens may be blocked. Clean or replace them. (Check your owner's manual for the location of the screens; they're often located at one end of the supply hoses, or you may have to remove a panel to access them.) Other reasons for not filling may be that either the timer or temperature selector is broken--both of these are repairs for an appliance repairperson.

Washer Does Not Spin
If your washer doesn't spin, check to see if the clothes have jammed or are unbalanced in the drum before calling a repairperson. Unbalanced clothes will also cause a w
asher to shudder or "walk." If straightening out the load doesn't stop the washer from shaking, look at the feet underneath and be sure they are properly adjusted to keep the washer sitting level on the floor (you just turn them to move them up or down).
Clothes Are Wet After Spin Cycle
If your clothes remain wet after your washer's spin cycle, perform the following diagnostics:
1) Lift the lid during the spin cycle. If the tub is not spinning, you may have a damaged motor coupler. Call a repairperson to replace this part.
2) If the tub is spinning, recheck the load to make sure it is balanced. If you are certain the load is balanced but your clothes are still wet, you may need to call a repairperson to replace a damaged motor pulley, tub bearing, belt, or clutch.

3) You can also follow the troubleshooting steps outlined in "Washing Machine Doesn't Drain." You may have a problem with your drain hose or pump.

Try adjusting the water lvl going into the washer. Adjust accordingly. If you have a meter, just the resistance of the valves. Unplug of course. It should read about 1.4k ohms ish. Could be higher or lower but roughly that.

When the water has reached it's proper level, the hot water turns off, but the cold water keeps filling until the water overflows the basket


Try this. With the wash tub empty, start to fill with water. Without turning washer off, unplug the washer from wall.

If water filling stops (hot and cold), then you are looking at a bad timer assembly. Replacement isn't that hard, parts can be difficult to find though.

If water continues to fill, your valve body / solenoid assembly is likely full of lime-scale. Easily replaced.

GE WPSR3120WOWW FIRST WASH WORKED AND DID'T FILL BACK UP WITH WATER FOR THE SECOND WASH AND THE SPIN CYCLE WON'T WORK.


Pop the front cover off by using a putty knife to push the clips in (2) at the seam where it meets the washer's top. Pull the thin hose off the left side of the tub and clean it out. (do this with the tub empty) replace tube and front panel and you are good to go.

Explaination: The goop in the tube prevents air from escaping as the water level droped, thus the washer thinks it is still full of water. If it thinks it is full of water, it will not fill any more, nor will it spin.

To prevent this from re-occouring, I'd suggest filling the machine to the lowest level with hot water and adding several cups of bleach. Run the cycle (with no clothes) to help clear out the goop. Use an extra large rinse to make sure there is no bleach residue before doing a load of clothing again. Do this about once every 3 months, and I don't think you'll see the problem again.

Washer drains then spins then fills again and drains but no spin


Try this, unplug washer for two minutes, plug back in, open and close lid seven times slowly, this will reset the computer and the electronic motor. Also on water level switch, make sure hose from switch to tub is not plugged, blow it out, gets clogged with soap.
