Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water pump goes through the whole cycle with door open.

This is my first washing machines that will not stop going through the whole cycle with the door open. I have lost so much washing powders with this washer. All other washing machines that I ve owned would fill up with water and then stop until I closed the lid. I would always start my washer when I start putting clothes in and usually go over the house making sure I had everything and sometimes I forget and when I go back, it will havve gone through the whole cycle and boy does that make me mad. I have cussed this thing a many of a times. I never called the service man cause I just figured they changed them. I am just curious and want to know if they did. If they did, I would advise them to go back to the old way. Does anyone out there know????? I have had my washer since 2005. That s how long I ve been going crazy. HaHa

You can replace the lid switch to fix it. The best thing to do is sort your laundry first from all over the house where you left the items. Make a load sized pile and place in washer along with the detergent and then turn on washer. If the switch has been straight wired it will do this. The switch on mine is straight wired and I have no problems with it. The lid switch is on there to keep small children and arms from getting hurt and broken.

It sounds as though you either have a clog in the drainage system of the machine, or a bad drain pump.

After the intital cycle of the water inlet vavle opening the program shifts to the next mode But since there is errors on the controller the machine shuts off with an alarm.

My hoover 540 washing machine started making funny noises a couple of loads ago (loud banging noise during spin cycle). Now it goes through whole cycle but when it gets to 'drain' part of the cycle,...


Sounds like a blockage in the outlet pipes or filter. It may be possible to drain it if you can get the outlet pipe (one from back of machine) outside, lay it flat on the ground as this will take it below the water level in the machine and may slowly drain. Once it drains out enough the machine should disengage the door lock to allow you to open it. Then check your filter and pipes for blockage. If no blockage is found then suspect faulty pump.

We experienced the same thing. I was able to restart and locate the noise to the water pump. After disassembling the water pump found the impeller shaft sliding out. For some reason this shaft will not stay in place. Had to order a complete pump assembly as the electric motor is not available.

this may sound silly but check the waste outlet pump electrically, some models are wired up so if the pump fails the water will not enter the machine, this works on the theory that if it fills up it can not empty also check the solenoids for open circuit electrically, double check the water supply to the machine, it may have been fine but you could have kinked the pipe placing the machine back where it should go?
