Question about GE WPRB9110WH Top Load Washer
When starting a wash cycle, a small amount of water adds to the tub, then it stops filling. Have reset (unplugged for 2 minutes) machine. Tried all cycles - same result. Checked hoses - drain hose is high enough.
Pull the washer foward, tilt back against the wall and look under it.... look where the water pump connects to the motor shaft... check for rust etc.... if so replace pump....

My GE WSM2780DAWW stack set dryer and washer was encountering the same problem (water kept filling up not stopping). I saw this page, but the SOLUTION described didn't really draw a picture for me.
Here's how I fixed the leaking washer. Sitting in front of the washer I removed two small screws on the bottom left and right of the front panel. Then sliding the front panel DOWN, it comes off. This allows a view into the machine. Around the LEFT side of the wash basin you will find a white tube. This tube is about the diameter of a pencil. My tube was not attached, and when the wash basin filled up past the point where it should stop, water came out. Reaching around the side of the wash basin with my left hand I could feel where the white tube was supposed to connect properly. Then I attached the white tube. This fixed the problem.
I left the front panel off for a day to make sure it didn't continue to leak and also for the area to dry out.

You don't. Front load washers use only a very small amount of water. They fill a small amount, tumble a bit, resulting in water being absorbed into the clothes, which drops the water level in the tub. The washer senses this and adds more water, which repeats until water level stabilizes. The only way to get more water on wash cycles is to use delicate cycles, which use more water, resulting in a more gentle wash action. Remember that due to the low water consumption of front load washers, you should only use one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle. (even less if you use 2x or 3x concentrate.) This is a FixYa solution. Your washer is working as designed.
