GE washer will not fill. As soon as it is turned on, it starts to spin but does not fill. There's no power going to fill valves. Just replaced the timer with a brand new one.

Did you see the 'tech sheet' inside? There is no way to tell you what to do without some help here. GE is impossible to get a service manual for. If you can get the 'tech sheet' or a photo of the schematic diagram to me I can help you.

Ge toploader whse5240D1WW will not fill with water

please the causes and remedies: God bless you
f your Top Load Washer Has No Water Entering Check The Following

Water Inlet Valve
First check the hoses that connect to the water inlet valve. Remove these completely there should be a screen in at least one end and maybe both ends. Clean these screens. Next check the back of the water inlet valve screens and remove and clean. If cleaning these out does not correct the problem you will need to check to make sure you have power going to the water inlet valve. Most top loaders will have 120 volts going to the valve. Check each solenoid on the valve. You will need to have the washer on and turned to a fill cycle when checking. If you have power and still no water replace the water inlet valve. No power replace the control.

Control / Timer

This is less likely the problem but can fail. If you have no power going to the water inlet valve when selecting a fill cycle the timer/ control has failed and you will need to replace the timer.

MY GE front loader washer won't fill with water or spin. I hear a hum when I turn it on and it sounds as if it's about to start a cycle but nothing happens.

It sounds as if your water valve is either clogged or the solenoid is stuck and not letting any water in. Here is a checklist of things you should do to help isolate the problem:
1) check to make sure the water is on
2) turn the water off and remove the water lines and verify that both the lines and the screens on the valve are clear of debris, calcium, etc.
3) take the top off the machine where you can actually see the valve, turn the machine on and see if the vavle is the humming noise that you are hearing. If so and no water is coming out then the valve is bad.

I have a GE Top Loading Washer. Model Number wcse4160b3ww. When I put it on any cycle it will not fill with water but insteads immediately starts to agitate. It will then go through the whole cycle...

most likely the water valve is faulty. The inlet water valve is at the end of the fill hoses. trace your way to it and get a new one and replace it. Before you do check the inlet filter is not blocked. good luck

What causes ge profile washer start filling up with water as soon as the spin cycle is through

most likely you either have a weak pressure switch or a water valve that is not seating properly... if when the unit is off it does not fill on you then it most likely is going to be a pressure switch located in the console area... prior to replacement though make sure the clear hose that goes from the pressure switch to the side of tub is not damaged or disconnected from the switch itself...alot of times if there is a crack and it cannot hold the pressure switch closed it will open and allow water to continue to run... the operation is as follows: turning the timer to a wash cycle water fills to desired load level once reached the pressure of the water in the tub will send air up to the pressure switch telling it to close once closed the timer advances to the next level of the wash cycle and the power is shut off from the pressure switch and water valve.... hope this helps a little ....

There is no electric printout so it will not turn on this is an old ge profile model #143c8954p011

Plug in a lamp or radio at the outlet where the washer is plugged in.
Does it work?
If so, re-plug the washer.
Set it for spin and turn it on.
Does it spin?
If so, set for hot water fill.
Does it fill?
If so, replace the water inlet valve.
