Question about GE WBXR2090B Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water stuck... I did a large load of wash and I believe when the washer filled water actually went behind the tub inside of the washer. Now for whatever reason I cannot find this water but I can hear it sloshing around like crazy. If I push down on the agitator you can really hear it. I have checked all the hoses etc and everything is clear. I have even turned the machine over to get the water out. It's as if it's in some secret compartment somewhere unknown to mankind. Please help

    Okay thanks. It just seems like more then normal. I don't ever recall hearing any water like that prior to this. My fear is that it is going to start to smell like mildew after time which ew, gross.



    I'll just wait and see, god knows I've tried everything else to get it out. I thought about the balancer too but like I said it seems like more then that. When I originally did the "too big" load the washer was actually leaking out of the bottom somewhere. That is what alerted me to this whole situation to begin with.



    It is not leaking underneath now and all looks well so something happened specific to that ONE big load.



    Soooo..don't worry? See what happens? When I run a load now it starts an finishes no problem, no water is retained etc.



    Wierd......

There is an internal overflow hose to prevent water from getting onto the motor and other electrical components. It sounds like the overflow system did its job.

The water you hear is likely one of two things: a small amount of water that is still in the tub, under the basket, which is nothing to worry about. Or, you are hearing the fluid (that is supposed to be there) in the balancer.

Washer does not fill with enough water.


The water level is controlled by a pressure switch connected to a long rubber hose that goes inside the tub. If the switch is defective or if the pressure hose is blocked the machine may under-fill.

Check also inlet hose and water pressure from the house.

Instructions
things you'll need:

* Laundry detergent
* Clean cloths
* Measuring tape
* Plywood (if necessary)
* Wrench (if necessary)
1.Verify that the Kenmore top-loading washing machine is completely plugged into a grounded, three-prong power outlet. Reset the fuse or circuit breaker, if necessary; do not plug the washing machine into an extension cord.
2.Make adjustments to the feet on the washing machine if it is shaking or vibrating. The front and rear feet must all be touching the floor evenly. If the floor under the machine is flimsy and cannot adequately support the washer, set a 3/4-inch piece of plywood under the machine for better stability. Load the tub evenly when placing items inside the washing machine and do not overload the tub.
3.Examine the washing machine drum, including between the inner and outer basket, if the machine is clicking or rattling during use. Remove loose objects from inside the drum. If objects are caught between the drums, unplug the washing machine and pull the items out with a pair of pliers, if possible.]
4.the fill hoses behind the washing machine if there are water leaks and ensure the drain hose is connected to a laundry tub or drainpipe. Look at the plumbing throughout the home for drainage problems and correct as necessary.
5.Turn on the water valves behind the washing machine and clean the water inlet hose screens if the water is not running or filling. Do not overload the tub, and use only high-efficiency (marked HE) laundry detergent in high-efficiency Kenmore washers. Note that energy-efficient washing machines often use less water than other machines; this is normal.
6.Choose a wash cycle with a higher spin speed if the water is not draining as expected or items are extremely wet when washing is complete. Reduce overall load size and select a new drain/spin cycle to remove the extra water from the washer. Ensure the drain hose is properly installed on a drainpipe or tub and is not set more than 96 inches above the floor.
7.Reduce the number or volume of items inside the washer tub if the clothes are not rinsed when the cycle is complete. Verify that the water valves are turned on and the correct type and amount of laundry detergent is used.

Washer wont wash on large load but will wash on medium and small i want to kwow what is going wrong it want do nothing but fill up and leak on the flooor when on large load should i replace the washer


the water pressure hose connected to the load size switch and the lower outer tub has a hole in it,remove the control panel and replace this hose,it uses water height/pressure in the tub to trigger the switch to operate the machine and the hole must be at the upper end of this hose,so it leaks before the water gets high enough to trigger the switch on a large load

Washed clothes while on the 'clean washer' setting


I'm sure that the exact make up of clean washer or tub clean cycles vary from brand to brand, but basically that cycle fills to a higher water level, hottest water, and highest spin, turning off load sensors / out of balance sensors so the machine can spin with water in the tub (allowing tub cleaning agents to contact all tub surfaces). (all other cycles pump the water out before spinning) Having a load of clothes in the machine at this time could result in overloading machine (gererally causing an error code), damage to suspension components, damage to hoses or connections resulting in water leaks, etc. Due to the large water level, your clothes would be agitated more ****, but the hot water might damage some fabrics. A FixYa rating would be appreciated for this info. Thanks.

GE Top-loader Leaks Water from Vertical Tube Behind Tub on X-Large Loads


it sounds like the basket is not locked when it is agitating, if so the water will climb the wall during the wash cycle and leak out of the overflow (which is the plastic tube you described). if this is the case, it is a transmission brake problem. it can be fixed by a professional, but you might want to look into buying a new machine.

GE Top-loader Leaks Water from Vert Tube Behind Tub on X-Large Loads


Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.

  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.

  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.

During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.

  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.

  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.

  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details

Maytag washer PAV2300 water over flow


from what I am reading on-line, it is the mix valve, aka water valve. Unplug the washer, then see if it still fills. If so, it's most likely stuck open, and needs to be replaced. about $22.00

Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. This tube controls the water level. Do not overload your machine, the manual will tell you the max load. Check to see if any hose has come loose from behind the machine; look inside from behind.
