Sounds like this could be a pressure switch problem. The switch is located inside the operator console behind the water level selector knob. It is a white disc-shaped device with an air hose and electrical connector attached. The first thing to do is inspect to ensure the air hose has no holes and has not come off the switch. Trace the hose from the switch, all the way to where it connects to the wash tub. Sometimes the hose will work itself loose or get a crack or small hole in it somewhere and the switch will no longer shut off when its supposed to. If the hose is intact, I would recommend replacing the switch. Searspartsdirect.com carries the part. Just type in your model number and look for item #10 under the "Controls and Backsplash" heading. The part number is WH12X10076 and costs about $62. I hope this info helps you.

PS To get the knob off, there is a small plastic retaining clip behind the knob that must be pulled out, before the knob will slide off the shaft.

Thanks. I had the same problem. Followed your instructions to access the pressure switch and hose. Cleaned the air line w/ 5% vinegar and air pressure (I blew through the line). The problem appears to be solved.

I appreciate the simple and accurate instructions

I have a GE washer model wwse3160a. It does not function except it fills with water. I checked the drive belt, I tried turning the motor clockwise and it spins the drum. All the lights come on but it...


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

We pulled our stacked washer out from the wall to service the cold water hose filter on the back of the unit. when we pushed it back into it's location the washer won't start, won't fill...


I know you don't want to hear this, but either you did something to the hose filter or you didn't get it plugged back in correctly.

If you banged the water inlet valve in moving it back, it might be damaged.

Suggest you unplug everything and start over.

Washer keeps running water the whole time. It's


You may have a condition known as "siphoning". This is caused by the drain hose not being high enough off the floor, or not having a proper air gap at the standpipe in order to drain properly. This creates a suction and the washer will constantly drain as it tries to fill. The following link explains:

In the majority of the cases, this problem is attributed to improper installation, rather than an actual problem with the washer. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The water does not shut off even after it reaches the proper level it continues to run and it overfills and leaks out the bottom of the washer the clear hose is not clogged and we blow into it we can hear...


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.

Washing machine won't spin or aggatate


We had the same problem and it was really easy to fix. On the dial for the load size, turn it all the way to the right to "reset" and then check to see if it resolves the problem. It did with our washer same model and problem. Best wishes.... Doug

Washer constantly fills with hot water even when turned off.


Sounds like a bad mixing valve. To verify that it is the valve you need to turn off the washer when it is filling. If water keeps running, replace the valve, Cost is under $50. for most washers.

Water keeps going and going and going!


the water is draining back to the ocean. The drain hose was not emptied properly from its last use. Put the machine in spin cycle (about 5 minutes) only to spin out the water from the outer tub completely and retry washer. If still problem, then visual check drain hose that it still has a "rising" section higher in altitude than the water level of inner tub (when working properly) before it makes a U-turn downward to send back to the ocean. You can also test the drain hose by putting machine in fill mode and crimping off the hose (fold hose over) to simulate a good drain hose. At this test, you should not "feel" water running through the hose if successfully crimped.
