Question about GE WJSR1070A Top Load Washer

Overflowed on Large load size

I have a GE washer and it overflowed when putting the water in (on large), but continued with the cycles. I re-set the load size, went back and did 2 more loads, one on Medium, the next one on large, and everything was fine, as I closely monitored it. I just moved it in, it is only 2 years old, I had it on it's side when moving, why did it overflow on a large load the first time and then not?

Re: Overflowed on Large load size

I think the water level sensor tube got filled when you had it on it's side, then after the first spin and drain cycle, the tube was again cleared out and ready for real action.

Washer just keeps filling and never advances on large and medium loads only

Your drain hose is pushed too far down into the drain so when you select the larger load sizes the water is being siphoned out as it goes in due to the pressure differential.

Washer overflowed after moving Load Capacity Switch from Super to reset and then to Large load?

On this model of washer you have 4 separate components that could cause overflowing. The water valve, pressure switch, pressure switch hose & the air dome. If you have to turn the water off to prevent overflowing, I would recommend replacing the water valve. If you can turn the timer off & the water stops overflowing, I would recommend checking the pressure switch, hose & air dome.

I just did a load of laundry at my mom's beach house. Second load so far is fine, however, first load seemed to leek from underneath. All water/drainage connections were dry. We moved and cleaned area and...

If all connections were dry, the water may have overflowed the top of the tub during a spin /rinse cycle. That could happen if there was a lot of water (i.e. set for large load) and a small amount of clothes.

GE WJRR4170 washer comes out of overflow tube on super load. It does not on Large load size. I have the front off and can see a large difference in water level from large to super size. Is this adjustable?

I have a 2005 model GE washer that would overfill only on SUPER size load. After looking around on the web, then inside the machine, I checked the tube from the tub to the switch, no problem there. Then I found an adjustment screw on the load size selector / pressure switch (all one piece). I moved it one turn clockwise, then ran a test cycle. I got lucky on the first try... no more overflow, the water comes up just above the top holes in the tub. I hope this will help others.

Older hotpoint washer

Sounds like a pressure switch problem not a timer. depending on the year and model they had alot of water level problems.

Overflowing water

If the water comes out when filling, check your water valve by unplugging the washer when it is filling. If the water still runs, replace the valve. If the water stops, check the small tube that goes from the water pressure switch (in the consul) to the bottom of the tub. This must be connected without any holes or obstructions. If this is ok, replace the water pressure switch.
