Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer

Filling level My washer is over filling, at small loads it's now up to the rim. Tried changing the waterl level with the pressure switch but nothing changes. Is the switch broken or is it the part on the tub? I cleaned the hose and there is no water in the hose.

    When blowing into the pressure switch it clicks and the switches to the other contacts.

    The hose was all black and almost closed with black dirt at the bottem, is this normal and where did this come from?

The hose is supposed to have no water in it, it is air pressure. As long as the hose is connected and there are no air leaks, I would change the pressure switch.

    Its just build up from washing, dirt, soap, crap like that. When you blew into it, did the water shut off? If so you just solved the problem. Clean out the hose and the little bulb. To remove, turn to the side about 3 ' clock. pull, it has a little grommet you may want to get some silicone first. Clean and apply when re installing. The other contact on the switch are the water level setting switch. If you have a meter you can check these. Contacts click= power in and power out.

    Yea, it has a little tab that matches the hole. be careful when pulling, so it doesn't break.

My Kenmore washer fills correctly and then agitates. But it won't stop filling to then switch to the rinse cycle.

Your wash machine doesn't know that the tub is full. Open up your console and look for a vinyl tube attached to your water level switch. Take the tube off of the switch and blow into the tube to clear out any blockages. Then, put the tube back on and test the wash machine. If the problem persists, then you need to replace your water level pressure switch AND the vinyl tube (just in case it has a small hole in it somewhere along the way).

You can buy the switch, which comes with the tube, here:

Good luck!

I get a flashing F and H

If the washer fills with water, and after a short while filling the error code "FH" comes up, that would indicate the water level pressure switch is not detecting the the water level. First, make sure the drain hose is not pushed to far down the drain pipe.

The pressure switch hose may have developed a small hole or the pressure switch has failed.

My kenmore top load washer will not stop filling with water i have replaced the inlet valve and checked the drain any other suggestions

Hi, there is a hose that conects the water level switch to the rear of the tub. Sometimes the the hose gets plugged with lint or old soap nd will not give the level switch a proper reading. The cup on the tub that the hose attaches to might need cleaned out as well. If there is nothing plugging the cup or hose, you might need a new water level switch. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if you need more assistance in this matter.

Here are a couple of things you can check to hopefully get to the bottom of your problem....

First of all, try unplugging the washer. Is the water still entering the washer? If so, you should replace the water valve, as it appears it may be stuck open. It's the plastic piece where the water lines are attached to the washer.

If this is not the case, then there may be a problem with your water level control. It's a fairly simple apparatus usually located inside the panel. You'll be able to identify it by a small hose (about 1/4 inch or so in diameter) connecting it to the basin. Check and make sure the hose is attached and isn't broken or pinched. If so, the washer isn't aware the water level has risen to it's pre-set level and like the Little Engine That Could, it will keep filling. :(

If the hose is attached, another little trick to use is to disconnect the hose from the basin, turn the washer on, and while the water is filling the machine, blow gently into the hose to try and trip the switch. If nothing changes and the water doesn't stop filling, the problem may lie in the water level switch itself.

I hope this helps! :) Let me know if I can be of further assistance!

I changed the lid switch because it was broke and now the water wont stop filling in the washer. It has to be shut of manually or it would over flow. I wondering if I hit or disconnected somethin when I...

You could have very easily disconnected something while repairing your lid switch. The most common cause of a washer that will not stop filling is a disconnected air hose on the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located inside the operator console behind the load level selector knob. There is a small plastic air hose attached to it that senses pressure from the wash tub as the water rises. This difference in pressure is what determines when the pressure switch shuts off. Without the air hose attached, the pressure switch will not shut off. The following link explains:

Since you had to remove your operator console while replacing the lid switch, I would begin there. Read through the link provided and let me know if you have nay questions. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

Fill will not stop

you may have a problem with your pressure switch. or sometimes they call it the water level switch.

try to use it in the small level and see if it would stop filling around medium or large quantities of water.

if it would stop filling , then replace the water level sensor.

Smeg washer/dryer not filling

Check the pressure switch, aka water level switch. If this isn't the problem, it may be the water valve.
