The mixing valve needs to be replaced. It should be under $50 and is easy to do.

I have a ge tl washer model number whre5260e1ww and it's not rinsing all the suds out. One day I rinsed the same load of towels 9 times and still had suds. Any ideas?

How much soap did you use? During the final spin, your "final rinse" lets water into the tub to rinse out any remaining soap. Check to see how long it rinses for. If it is very briefly (a few seconds), there might be a problem with the timer or the electronic water inlet solenoid. The solenoid is what opens the valve to let the water in. Sometimes when they go bad, they won't let the valve stay open long enough to let enough water in.

I have a GE toploader washer. The model # is WBSR1060T (VVSRV1040V, & YVSR1040V were also on the washer too) the washer keeps filling to the max setting no mater what the water level is set on, also...

Remove the front panel of the washer by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips, located in the seam between the front panel and the washer's top, about 2 inches in from each side. With an empty wash tub, remove the small hose on the left side of the outer tub and clean out the inside of the hose. Replace the hose. Test.

Hiw many gallons of water with 2 rinses does a top

Your washer takes 35 gallons to wash and 35 gallons to rinse. Ask me how I know? Well I work on them but last December my washer (which is the same as yours) developed a problem with the cold water inlet valve. My inlaws and daughter and friends all come by at different times to use paws paws washer. They pass 50 laundry mats to come to my house. Just for fun I told my wife to get a 5 gallon bucket and fill the washer up. It takes 7 buckets to fill the washer up and get it to start washing. Later she decided to run a water hose out to the washer and fill it up. Then my mother in law suggested she put the washer on rinse and fill the tub. That told me I had a timer problem. But luckily I have 2 or 3 washers around the house I can get parts off of. So to recap: 70 gallons of water to wash a full load of clothes is what I guesstamate it took. Did that slow down my inlaws? Nope.

Water runs but doesn't fill tub and wont spin if put on spin cycl

The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

Water level adjustment

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.

Won,t drain on rinse cycle

There could be several causes for this, but probably a bad timer. One test for this...when it to turn it off...and turn the timer slightly the middle of the rinse cycle...and turn it back on. Does it run then?? Try advancing it to the spin cycle after the rinse. If it runs okay after you manually advance the knob...the timer is probably defective.

Water level

The level of water in the drum is controlled by a pressure switch. This switch is attatched to the drum via an air tube which pushes air into the pressure switch as the machine fills with water. There could be a blockage in the pressure chamber attatched to the drum or the pressure switch is faulty.
