First check the hose that is attached to the pressure switch to make sure that it is not plugged up with gunk down inside the machine where it attaches to the outer tub of the machine. Clean out the hose and the connection that it is attached to. Also check for holes or crimps in the hose.

Washer overflowed after moving Load Capacity Switch from Super to reset and then to Large load?


On this model of washer you have 4 separate components that could cause overflowing. The water valve, pressure switch, pressure switch hose & the air dome. If you have to turn the water off to prevent overflowing, I would recommend replacing the water valve. If you can turn the timer off & the water stops overflowing, I would recommend checking the pressure switch, hose & air dome.

Myn washer always overflowes as it filling it wont


This is usually the pressure switch. Also you could check the water inlet valve if water is still flowing in the machine after it stops. There are free videos on testing these components at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

When washing or rinsing water spills over the top of the tub and on to the floor


the transmition is bad,it does not hold the inner tube in wash cycle.as the ajitator work's the inner tube turns at the sam time,the inner tube turns faster and faster and a cyclone efect happens and the water go's out the overflow tube.the cost of repair would exceed the worth of the unit.

It is leaking during the washing and ring but not the spin or drain


Check to see if the washer inner tub is spinning during the agitation. If it is it is causing the water to spin up and over the side during the wash cyle. Bad brake package and usually not worth repairing. You can also have too much high sudsing soap in your washer, causing it to over flow out the safety overflow pipe. Good Luck Appliance Specialists.

GE WBSR WASHER WATER OVERFLOWS


He probably disconnected the water level sensor when replacing the belt or the timer is dead.
Check for any unconnected sensor or check if the main program button is turning propely..

Overflow


Hello,

If you unplug the machine and the water still comes in, you have a bad Water Inlet Valve. If when you turn the machine on at in overfills and you can stop the water by turning off the washer timer then you have one of a couple possible issues.

First, you pressure sensing tube could be clogged
Second, you just plain have a defective pressure sensing switch.

If you have anymore questions, feel free to comment back.

Thank you
