SOURCE: GE washer won't fill with cold water

Cold water pipe had become frozen. FYI this model of washer has a nice feature whereas you can test each component i.e. valves, by setting the timer and reading the LED's on the front panel. Instructions are in the schematic.

SOURCE: GE Washer agitates when I try to fill it up with water,wont fill

You have a bad water level switch or a clogged plastic hose that goes to the water level switch.
Use a putty knife to open the front panel. The clips are at the top right and left sides just below the top lid. Push in on the clips and pull out on the panel.
On the left side of the tub you will see the air dome with aplastic hose connected.
Remove the hose and insert a small wire into the air dome hole to clean it out ouf soap scum. Then, blow through the hose and listen for a faint click in the water level switch. Also check the hose for a hole or being pinched.
The set the timer for spin and run a spin cycle then retry the water level and wash cycle.

SOURCE: Washer wont fill with water/clothes dont get clean

Actually the machine is working like it is designed. When the correct soap is used, these machines clean clothes better than the old style. Try using a major brand of soap like Tide, Bold, or Cheer. Make sure it has the HE design on the bottle. This means that it is made just for the new High Efficiency machines. Also make sure you don't use to much. Read the directions. If this is done correctly, I'm sure you will find that it does clean great. I was like you when I first saw one of these new machines. "These is no way you can clean dirty and I mean dirty clothes without enough water to cover them. Well since, I have became a believer. They have put a lot of thought into designing these things. They had to of, for them to clean as good as they do.

Too many suds in your clothes washer?


Washers built today use less water and energy than ever. With this reduction in water a reduction in detergent is needed. Detergent manufactures along with the assistance of appliance manufactures have developed HE or high efficiency detergents to use in the washing machines we buy today.

This detergent is low sudings and is very concentrated to effectively and efficiently clean your laundry. Always use the recommended amount on the label and no more. Do not use not HE detergents or additives that are not recommended for high efficiency machines or sudings may occur.

The over sudsings can cause poor washing, odors due to residue left in the machine and on laundry and poor drying as the washer may not be able to extract the maximum amount of water from the clothes. Washer failures caused by excessive suds can include odors, premature bearing wear, motor failure and an array of failure codes that can be hard to troubleshoot at times.

Simple Tips to Make Your Washing Machine Last Longer


  1. DON’T OVERLOAD: Overloading not only is damaging to your clothes but also puts unnecessary stress on vital components. Compare overloading your washer to pulling a loaded trailer behind your family car all the time. Extra strain on the motor, transmission and suspension will most certainly shorten the life of your car. Oh, did I say your washer also has a motor, transmission and suspension?...How does overloading damage my clothes? Rubbing together of cottons causes linting. The more rubbing together the more linting and the shorter the life of the garment.
  2. DRAIN HOSE HEIGHT: Be sure to follow manufactures directions regarding proper installation. Washers have small pumps, either self powered or driven by belt off main motor. Ideally, the drain hose should hook into a drain pipe directly behind the console of your washer. If your hose is too high the pump takes longer to evacuate the water from the tub putting stress on your washer and possibly reducing cleaning effectiveness. Too low a drain hose and your water could siphon out of the unit during the wash cycle. I have been on calls where the customer said there washer would wash, stop, fill, wash, stop, fill etc. Water was siphoning from the tub.
  3. RUSTING: Clean surfaces frequently to avoid rusting, especially clean around the bleach dispenser as bleach is corrosive and will cause severe rusting if not kept clean and dry. If rusting has already appeared go to your hardware store and pick up a bottle of rust converter (not rust remover). Follow directions on bottle. This works very well on rust. It can also be painted over after 24 to 48 hours.
  4. SOAP SCUM : To reduce the build up of scum fill your washer with warm water, add a pint of vinegar and let it run through a full cycle.Follow this procedure once a month.
  5. BUY OEM PARTS: When replacing parts on your washer, be sure to buy genuine Whirlpool parts, Frigidaire parts, Kenmore parts, Maytag parts, or parts for whichever brand washer you have. This will guarantee you are using the most reliable replacement parts available.

My GE top load washer is about 5 months old. It fills up and runs through the agitation cycle but then stops at the end spin cycle. The clothes just sit in the water. I checked the hose for kinks and...


I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.

Dirt left in creases after washing clothes. Clothes never look clean


Too many clothes in the load , if it says 5lb then that is the maximum you should fill it with otherwise the clothes do not seperate as they are being agitated

Also

Not enough detergent (Try the old powder types)

Hard Water area (Use a small amount of Washing Soda)

Water level too low , use add water button if fitted

Water problem


Apr 01, 2009 | Washing Machines

1 Answer

Makes a grnding sound when washing(not always) & does not spin all the water


This problem happen to me a few months back--washer was 6 months old. A technician came out and told me that I must have loaded the washer after the water was in the tub. He stated that I must load my washer prior to running the water in because the water fill amount is based on weight; therefore it was now weighing too much. Go figure...have always loaded the washer with water first and clothes last. I always put clothes in first then the water--I must say, the problem has not reappear.

Hope this helps.

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine
