I would unplug the washer to reset it. if you have already hit the power button to turn the unit off and it failed to respond. Newer washer machines are like computers, and smart phones these days. you have to reboot them because they do sometimes lock up. Pull the cord for about 5 minutes and see if that resolves your issue.
Hard Reset - In some cases the control can be non-functioning or may not accept activation from the control panel. To clear and restart the control follow the these steps:
* Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds. * Reconnect the unit to the power source by turning the breaker back on or plugging the unit back into the wall outlet. * Press the Pause/Cancel/Stop button twice to clear the "PF" in the display. * Start a short cycle to check the operation of the machine by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the machine starts.

there is a problem with the rubber washer or bushing. it may be brittle since it has not been used for a long time. remove the handle then assymbly to locate the rubber washers, the washer seals the flow of water.
in order to determine what is the cause of your problem , please provide the error codes an model number so we can figure out what is wrong with it, has anyone set anything heavy on top of the machine if is a top load machine, first guess if you have power to the machine would be look into the lid swtich an go from there....
When error message 4E is displayed, you should clean the water hose mesh filter. To do this:
1. Turn off the water source to the washing machine. 2. Unscrew the hose from the back of the washing machine. 3. With a pair of pliers, gently pull out the mesh filter from the end of the hose and rinse it under water until clean. Also clean the inside and outside of the threaded connector. 4. Push the filter back into place. 5. Screw the hose back onto the washing machine. 6. Turn on the faucet and make sure the connections are watertight.
Also, please check the following: • Make sure the source water faucet is turned on. • Check the water pressure.

Sure. If the machine is less than a year old, call for warranty service, otherwise: If the washer filled on it's own that tells me that the water inlet valve is not or at least did not seal completely, allowing a small amount of water to continue to enter the machine over a period of time and finally fill until the water went out the overflow tube inside the washer. You need to replace the inlet valve. It is the part the water supply hoses connect to at the back of the machine. If you add a comment on the model number I can look up the part number for you.
Now, about the noise: A common noise on GE washers is a errr errr errr noise while agitating especially. If the tub is full of water you can open the lid and move the tub back and forth and make it do this noise while the machine is not even running. To fix that, do this:
Use a putty knife to push in on the clips holding the front onto the machine. They are located at the top of the front panel where it meets the washer top, about 2 or 3 inches in from each side.
Remove the two 1/4 inch hex drive screws holding the top to the side panels.
Remove the washer top. Some models have a lid switch at the back right side which has a disconnect plug. Other models have a switch toward the front right, which you need to push the tab on the back side toward the center of the switch allowing you to push the switch up, twist and pass the switch back through the rectangular hole. You may have to remove a hose on the left side if your model has that as part of the bleach dispenser. Some washer tops need to be lifted up a little and slid to the side just a bit to remove the top.
Disengage the tub support rods near the bottom of the tub by lifting on the tub and pushing the nylon part out of the black metal tub supports. Lift the rod up and put a bunch of lithium based grease under the nylon ball at the top of the support rod. Replace the rod and move onto the next rod. (4 in all)
My washing machine did the same thing. Stopped at 11 minutes and would spin but not drain the water out. No money spent just time. I took the front panel off and back in the right hand corner is a drain that has 2 hose clips on. Take them off and look inside the white plastic part connecting this and inside you will proubly find money wedged up in their. I had several various change in their but the one was the 2 nickels that was lodged perfectly in their that would not allow the water to pump out. After I removed them and put it back works perfectly.
