Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
1. If the only way to shut the water off is to turn the water off at the faucet, then you have a bad water valve. replace it.
2. If you can shut the water off by turning off the machine or unplugging it, then your water level pressure switch is not working properly. . You can take the backspash loose and you will see the pressure switch with a rubber hose attached to it. Remove the hose from the switch and blow down through it. Then remove the front panel of the machine. To do this use a flat blade putty knife to depress a spring clip on each side of the front panel between the top and the front.
You will see the rubber hose connected to a connection on the side of the outer tub. Sometimes this connection and or the end of the hose can become stopped up with crud. you can take a small wire or other such object and clean out the connector and the hose. If cleaning the hose doesn't work then you have a bad pressure switch.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/toppressureswitchvideo.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.

It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
