Water level switch is either bad or disconnected, or you have a hole in the tube that runs from the outer tub to the water level switch.

This sounds like a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start appropriate cycle. Make sure there is no damage to or obstructions in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Washer starts filling but stops


There are a host of things it could be. I would start with the solenoid first. This is what allows the water in and then is told to stop after a set period of time. F your washer is much older than 7-8 years old, then I would consider replacing because you may be seeing the beginning of the end for your washer. The monies you put in will only buy a little time and. Have a tech that is qualified will help you determine this. This is what I would recommend.

Top load washer will not fill with water. Doesn't matter what setting. Other functions appear to be working but no water.


Check to make sure you have power to the pump...if not, trace it back to the relay that kicks the pump on & see if the relay is energized.

Possible that the water level sensor has failed.Shut down washer and trace the sensor which is a pressure activated switch from the drum overflow. the switch can be activated by blowing and checking continuity. if so replace the unit

I HAVE A GE WASHER THAT FILLS WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. DOESN'T MATTER WHAT SIZE LOAD, IT CONTINUES TO FILL WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. IT STOPS WHEN I HIT THE STOP/PAUSE BUTTON.


There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

Water dose ot stop when washer is full. It continues to run.


If you disconnected power and water still flowed, replace the water valve. If water stopped flowing when power was disconnected, clean out tube from tub to water level switch.

The cycle doesn't advance When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Washer over fills with water


There is a pressure switch with a long thin hose or tube attached to it. It is inside the washer and can be located with the back or the top removed. As the water fills, the pressure in the hose increases and the switch activates at a determined pressure, shutting of the water valve. I have seen bad switches and pinched or clogged hoses..

Washing Machine won't stop filling up


Try resetting your water level control. If that doesn't help then set the water level control to the lowest setting and observe if level exceeds that setting. If so, you may possibly have a faulty water level control, or an obstruction in the air dome or water level control hose. This can be a tricky 1 to diagnose for a novice.
