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- -!

My ge washer shuts off at 19 minutes, but filter is clean


The rug backing may have gone into the pump (the white motor thing) you might take the motor out and flush it out if it is clear and it still won't pump out the pump needs replaced.

Washer drains but won't spin.


The next time this condition occuers, take the front panel off the machine and look under the top cover of the motor at the right front side. There is a LED light on the motor inverter board there. If it is flashing twice, then a pause, then repeating this again and again you most likely have a loose hub nut on your wash basket. (the motor reads this as belt slippage)
1. Order and install a new hub washer (WH2X1199) and a new split ring (WH2X1195) along with a new hub nut (WH2X1193). If the hub part of the basket is worn, replace that as well (plastic tub models = WH45X10027, SS tub = hub / basket WH45X10060.
2. Tighten hub nut, torque to 110 ft-lbs.
3. Clear flash code error. (your method to clear code is a bit more extreme than required, but will work)

Order a Non-Wood Countertop Kit GPF65Check electrical connection to dishwasher. All that moving around may have contributed to a poor connection. Test wire nut connections where the household wire connects to the dishwasher by holding wire nuts and tugging each wire to make sure they are firmly attached. Inspect incomming wire to make sure it has not been damaged.

Another flood. GE washer


The water sound is normal. There is a solution in the top of inner tub for balance. Is it overflowing...as in not stopping the fill cycle? If so check to make sure small hose is still attached to outer tu at bottom left front. This dome that it connects to can become filled with scum and causes the unit to not know that it's full. This causes flooding. You can try removing hose and cleaning out with thin wire. Sometime only fix is to replace outer tub. Again, this is only if overflowing!!
Another possibility is a bad break allowing outer tub to spin in agitation. This throws water up over sides of tub. Monitor unit when agitating to see if outer tub picks up speed and starts to spin. It is normal for it to index.
