Question about GE Profile WPSR3120WWW
Fairly new washer, no problems until now. Regardless of load size selected tub fills to top, then over fills. Water continues to flow during agitate cycle. Water continues to flow after rinse cycle, Water continues to flow during spin cycle. Water flows after shut down. I closed water supply valves to save water. Seems solenoid may be stuck in open position. Do I need to replace water inlet valve ? This looks like the part from a short internet search. http://www.partselect.com/xq/aspx/Inventory.60378/qx/PartDetail.htm?SourceCode=6 Thanks for any help. Water will not stop flowing into the washer. It is causing the washer to over flow unto the floor.
I had the same problem and went out to a website for Maytag washers. That website advised that the problem could be mechanical or electrical. In my case, the problem was a clogged tube and it took only ten or fifteen minutes to fix.
0. Unplug the machine.
1. Open up the front of the washer. Along the left hand side is a long transparent tube. The tube connects to a wallet size container on the side and near the bottom of the tub.
2. Inspect the transparent tube. It may be clogged where the tube meets the wallet sided container.
Note: When the tub is full, it creates pressure in that wallet size compartment which sends air up that tube to a pressure switch located within the panel at the top of the washer. The pressure switch flips and tells the machine - stop filling the tub with water. My machine had a visible clog in the bottom of the tube that carries the air from the bottom of the tub up to the pressure switch.
3. Disconnect the tube and clean. I used a pipecleaner to get most of the mold out. To completely clear the tube, remove the top panel and disconnect the tube from the pressure switch in the top panel and blow air down the tube.
4. Reconnect, test - and you should be good to go. If not, your pressure switch may be dead.
