    When mine fills during rinse cycle, it keeps filling after it is supposed to stop. When I turn the level selector switch I can get it to stop. Is it the switch or the valve?

    I have had a GE repair man to my home multiple times, and they will not consider it a lemon because it isnt the same problem going out all the time. The knobs strip, it will not go into the spin mode now, and it sticks between heavy and medium load, if you dont help it advance. It also over flows on the super load, and as of today the large load as well. VERY DISAPPOINTED in this product that isnt even 2 yrs old. I am still paying this washer off, and had to go buy a new one today!

SOURCE: GE Washer overfilled, now won't spin

Could possibly be that the water level switch in the console has gone bad.  Sometimes the small hose that connects the basket and the switch can come off, causing the overfill.  Sounds like maybe the water switch has gone bad though if I were to guess at it.  If it goes bad, it will send the timer a signal that its full, when its not.  Could also be a bad timer, but that only happens on rare occasions, but it does happen.  Let me know how it goes or if you need break down instructions, etc.  Jim

mostly likely your pressure switch has gone bad or the hose has come loose from the pressure switch. open access to the console. your pressure switch is the water level. if the hose is attached, then the switch itself is bad. Joe

SOURCE: My GE washer (modelWBB4500E1WW) overflows about

Remove the front panel by using a putty knife to depress the retaining clips at the seam where it meets the washer top. (one on each side) Take the thin hose off the lower left side of the outer tub and clean it out. A short cut would be to cut off an inch and a half of it, but that's a one time fix, then the hose starts getting too short. To help prevent re-occourance, run a small hot load with a couple cups of bleach (no clothes) every few months. Make sure to rinse the tub on the largest level to prevent bleach damage to your next wash load.

SOURCE: my ge washer overfills from time to time...model

I think that from time to time your water inlet valve is sticking and not cutting off. This can be caused by sediment in the water or wear on the valve. The cold water valve is the one which usually sticks. The valve is on the back where the water hose connects to the washer. Replace it or flush and blow it out and make sure the wire strainer is in the other end of hose.

SOURCE: Our GE washer model #: WCVH6800J1WW is overfilling

When you replaced the pressure switch, did you fully test the pressure switch hose?

Here's a similar posting that explains a potential issue and how to troubleshoot:

http://www.fixya.com/support/t8933273-general_electirc_washer_model

I highly recommend doing a diagnostic test because it's free and easy. Most of the time, the washer will self-diagnose. Check out that posting for instructions on how to do the tests.

Washer overfills


This is caused by either a washer fill level sensor tube being blocked or the pressure switch it acts on being defective, the water level switch is next to the timer control on the top of the washer panel.

Washer overfills and will not agitate


Removed obstruction in pressure switch.

Occasionally it will overfill


The water level switch is your problem.
Open the control panel and remove the plastic hose from the level switch and blow through it.
Soap and dirt clog the bottom end and prevents the switch from stopping. The water continues to flow because of this blockage.
After you reattach the plastic hose , set the washer to spin and turn it on to reset the switch.

GE Washer WHDRR418E1WW overflows the tube. Yikes.


A washer that over flows in the fill cycle sounds like a faulty pressure switch. Part # WH12X10069 and 10 on this diagram. If it overfills the tub when the washer is off it's a faulty water valve. Best of luck Ryan
