Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
Beekay, thanks for this helpful suggestion. the washer is cleared out now, but I haven't been able to get the dial off. Presumably, I should grip it with pliers and pull back, but moderate force doesn't budge it. Is there a better way? Thanks. (And any suggestion as to where one might get a new dial? This washer was bought at Home Depot - do they carry parts?)
Fix It Right's solution is right on the money. If you cannot pull the knob off, there has to be a retainer behind the knob.
Home Depot most likely does not stock the part. Look in the yellow pages for a local appliance parts store. MAKE SURE you have the Model # and Serial # written down. If you have a GE, there should be 4 screws on the top of the control panel. You may have to remove the screws to get to the retainer.

If it is the timer dial just pull the heck out of it but some have a clip on the backside of the dial itself remove this pin and it will come off in your hand you can contact Ge aor repair clinic.com or even a local appliance dealer ( Used or parts dealer) in your area can order it for ya

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.
Whirlpool uses a flow meter that detects the flow of water entering the washer. If this flow meter does not detect the correct amount of water entering the washer it will sound the F20 error code. Often this repair can be made with out calling an appliance repairman and without ordering parts. Start by removing the washer fill hoses; both the cold and the hot water hoses. Check for proper water pressure from the house. To do so, turn the water on and put the hose inside the washer or a bucket.
If water pressure is good, check the water valve inlet screens. Most residential washing machines have inlet screens. The screens prevent minerals from clogging the solenoid. With the hoses removed, you can visually inspect the water inlet screens. If the water valve screens are clear the inlet valve with the screens itself will need to be replaced. To replace the water valve, remove the top of the washing machine. Three screws hold the top down. The screws that hold the top down are on the back of the top panel. Once removed the top will slide back and off. Now remove the wire harness that connects to the valve. One screw holds the valve to the washers cabinet. Removing the screw and sliding the valve over will release the valve from the back panel enabling you to complete your repair.
One last thing to check is the fill hoses. These front load duet washers call for a lot of water quickly. So if you have stainless steel braided flood-safe hoses, they will trip for no reason at all. Replace these flood safe hoses with more traditional hoses. If the hoses are good and you haven't found anything slowing down the flow of the water, your electronic inlet water valve is just faulty on the back of your washer and will need to be replaced because it's just not allowing water flow into the washer correctly.
