If the water will not shut off, the problem is most likely a faulty water level switch. The switch is a diaphragm like device that has a small clear plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As water level rises it, pressure increases on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain point it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. Look for any obstructions in the tube and the switch can be checked with an ohm meter or multimeter for continuity. If the switch has none it is defective and will have to be replaced. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Washer keeps fling with water and will not agitates it will drain and spin


There is usually a small hose from the outer tub to the water level switch. This ia actually a pressure hose to make the water shut off. If a hole is rubbed into it, you loose the pressure and the washer fill will never shut off. That pressure is needed to switch machine from fill to agitate once it reaches the proper fill level.

My GE 15 cycle heavy duty plus washer the water keep running in the rinse cycle


Hum the water inlet valve may be going out or defective, have u noticed any water in tub at bottom when machine is not in use or after a day or so? check it with multimeter. Another suspect could be a bad timer sticking on rinse cycle, or a bad water pressure switch, which is suppose to shut water off at certain water level then start the agitation? In other words when in rinse and water is draining, the pressure switch continues to read low and opens to keep the water flowing to replace water that is lost? Need a multimeter test on all of them

My GE washing machine keeps over filling, flooding the room if we don't stop it. Where is the mechanism that measures and turns of water?


If the machine starts to agitate and the water does not shut off replace the water inlet valve. Now if the machine fills and does not agitate,then clean the pressure sensor tubing and the line coming off the tub. Hope this helps Tim

Doesn't fill with water - goes straight to agitation.


open the console and find the pressure switch. it has a clear hose attached to it. pull the hose off the switch and turn on the washer. if water starts to enter shut it off and blow through it back to the tub. some piece of junk may have plugged it causing the switch to "think" the tub is full of water. put the hos back on and run a short spin cycle to reset it and try again making sure to run a small load to see if it shuts off properly. if no water enters when hose is pulled off most likely bad pressure switch. keep the lid closed while doing these tests. some units wont work w/lid open.

Washing machine begins the wash cycle going immediately to the agitate cycle, without filling up with water first.

Washer won't stop filling with water


In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!
