Question about GE WPGT9360E Profile Harmony 4.0 cu. ft. Washer with Stainless Steel Basket

1 Answer

Washer seems to need more water.

Whenever I wash my clothes in my Profile Harmony washer, there never seems to be enough water. The clothes are all wet and swish around, but there is never water covering them and it seems that at times they just stay in a big wet clump and don't get opened up enough to wash good. I don't feel like enough water is being dispensed. Can I control that? Thanks!

HI, the water level switch(aka pressure switch), is responsible for regulating the water fill level in this situation. It does this through a plastic tube which runs from the switch in the control console down to the side of the outer tub, near the bottom . The tube is filled with air. As water enters the tub it also enters the tube. As water climbs inside the tube, it pushes on the air trapped inside and increases the air pressure. When the air pressure reaches a certain level, it triggers the switch.

I would advise to Inspect the air tube for kinks, breaks or damage. The tube should also be free of water. The tubing should be securely connected to the bottom of the outer tub and to the bottom of the water level switch. If there is water present, the switch must be replaced.

The water level switch has three connectors. Label and disconnect the wires from the switch. Test the switch for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1. It will be necessary to test each of the three possible pairs. replace the switch if it fails the continuity test.

You may have sediment in the valve screen or the valve just won't open completely. In either case i suggest replacing the valve. Your 2 problems are both associated with low flow from the water valve.

Not enough water to wet all the clothes.


Either the water level switch has bad calibration or the water level tube has lost its air seal and needs to be refitted and air locked. If you do not know how to go about these tasks, call someone with experience. Goodluck, Macgivor

Try checking the gaskets where the hoses connect to the water supply and the washer, I have found when they start breaking down they can sometimes almost melt onto the clothes.

Foul water odor after wash


There is always a littlee water left in the sump of a washer after it is emptied. If the washer sits unused for as little as 2 or 3 days it can have that odor. One thing that I do is add about 1/4 cup of ammonia after the washer is full of water. DO NOT USE AMMONIA IF YOU USE BLEACH IN THE SAME WASH!!! IT WILL CAUSE CLORINE GAS TO BE RELEASED!! If bleach was used in the previous cycle it will be ok.
