Question about GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A

Open Question

WHDSR209D2WW GE Washer

The machine works well except for that while filling, it began to not shut off but continued to fill. Turning it off, you could see that the water was going out of the tub nearly as fast as it filled. If it did fill enough to agitate, it would drain, then stop to refill, and so on. This seems to happen on all temp settings, and is intermittent. Sometimes it works perfect, and other times not. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Fills, washes, but won't drain or spin

Possible your outlet filter is blocked, it needs periodic cleaning, which the user can do himself. Locate where this is from your user's manual. Clean out, re-fix. Next it could be the hose that goes from the bottom of the tub to the filter pump; check the former first.

SOURCE: GE WJSR2050T2WW Washer fills up,Spins but won't drain out?

The most common reason for no pump out is a blockage in the pump. Best to drain as much water as possible. (even laying the drain hose down to allow as much of the water to drain out as possible) Un-plug washer. Next, open the front of the washer by using a putty knife to push in and release the clips about two inches in from each side at the seam where the front panel meets the washer top. Pull the front panel forward and lift it off the bottom pegs. Remove spring clamps from inlet and outlet of pump with a plier. Remove two pump mounting screws to allow pump removal after unplugging electrical leads. Remove obstruction from pump. Most pump bodies can be separated if necessary. Reassemble, plug back in and test.

SOURCE: GE washer won't agitate

I had this same problem with our GE top load washer.  I just needed to pull harder.  (Note: The agitator is held in place by about a dozen L-shaped clips in a ring around the agitator's base that will release more as you pull harder on the agitator.)  Everything from the base below the large fins on up comes out together.  Grab the shaft above the fins and pull slowly and hard. I had to take the entire tub out, lay it on the porch, put my feet inside of it, and pull the agitator assembly out.  I wasn't able to pull it out while it was still in the washer.  BE CAREFUL! DON'T **** IT OUT; that might injure your back; just pull out slowly and as hard as you can without hurting yourself.  I was able to get it out successfully, but I am currently stuck at removing the bell below the agitator.  Good luck!

SOURCE: GE wcxr1070a washing machine. fills with water

Check the water level switch and the plastic tubing to the switch.
Sometimes soap scum stops up the plastic hose and the water level switch does not close to send power to the timer.
If the plastic hose is good and the water level fills and stops replace the water level switch.

SOURCE: GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.

try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!

Hello
I am familiar with this problem and 99% of the time it is caused by the washer lid safety switch, if the switch doesn't function the washer control will not let the cycle run past filling the tub with water. You can buy the part and get information on how to install it from a company called www.repairclinic.com

The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

My GE washer wont stop filling in any cycle. Even if you pull out the plug. Leaks everywhere. I blew into water level switch hose and it clicks. Model number WBXR1060T. Thank you


If water continues to fill and you have unplugged the washer from the wall then your fill valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced. Turning off the water at the wall faucet should stop the water. The fill valve is what the hoses are attached to at the washer.

When the water has reached it's proper level, the hot water turns off, but the cold water keeps filling until the water overflows the basket


Try this. With the wash tub empty, start to fill with water. Without turning washer off, unplug the washer from wall.

If water filling stops (hot and cold), then you are looking at a bad timer assembly. Replacement isn't that hard, parts can be difficult to find though.

If water continues to fill, your valve body / solenoid assembly is likely full of lime-scale. Easily replaced.

Won't stop filling. When I go through the cycles it continues to fill until I reach the final spin cycle then it will start draining and spin out.


Two common problems for this simptom:

If water stops filling when you disconnect the washer:
Change the pressure switch.
If water keeps coming in after you disconnect the washer:
Change the water valve.

GOOD LUCK MY FRIEND

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve

Washer Pauses and Shuts down Repeatedly


Check the cold water line into the unit. Remove the hose from the washer and clean the screen. flush the line while it is disconnected into a bucket or small garbage can. Your washer wont advance without a fill and most fills/rinses are with cold water

Washer continues to fill after full, then spills all over floor until manual shut off


This is an indication of a pressure switch malfunction. Post back with your washer brand name and model number and I can tell you how to check it.
