Hi eileen.Like marka19 said the pressure switch may be the problem but i would also suggest that there is a thin tube running from the side of the bowl to the pressure switch wich can develop a tiny air leak causing the machine to fill past the low level.Now i dont know if the water leaking is from the bowl actually overflowing with water or you have a more sinister problem with a centre tub seal.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the inspection and replacement of this part. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Does not sense clothes


most top loaders fill to the setting you enter into the program l( medium low high etc ) as the clothes absorb the water it will keep filling until a level is reached at which point that is the amount of water for the clothes and the machine will start you just have to think about how many clothes you are washing and how big they are ie blanket will be a big load and nickers will be small load

I bought a top load washing machine model number WF T7239 UL on 05Nov2010. Water sensor does not seem to work. Water just keeps filling up the drum and starts overflowing once filled.


Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.



If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Water keeps running.......


i assume washer never starts running if not suspect water level switch or connection hose also be sure small hose to switch is not plugged or mashed flat even a small hole in hose may cause it not to get pressure to tell switch drum is full ..if washer does start running suspect bad water valve may not be shutting off

GE top load washer leaks on floor


Check your hoses mostly the small hose going from the side of the tub to the water switch these come off a lot. you need to look and see if the seal is leaking from the center of the tub you do this by putting water in the tub and just looking around the bottom of the tub and transmission
