Slow steady leak fills machine then overflows

When the machine is stopped a small but steady trickle fills the washer until it overflows. I suspect a valve doesn't fully close. I am tech-able but would rather not tear into a 2 year old machine without a manual or at least a schematic. does anyone have one they can email or post? Even better know where the problem comes from?

I HAVE A GE WASHER THAT FILLS WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. DOESN'T MATTER WHAT SIZE LOAD, IT CONTINUES TO FILL WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. IT STOPS WHEN I HIT THE STOP/PAUSE BUTTON.


There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

My washer seems is filling very slowly, and doesn't empty all the water out of the tub. I tried both temperature settings and it doesn't seem to matter. It will fluctuate back and forth on how fast it...


regarding your filling problem , most washers have small screen filters at the water intake, take your hot and cold hoses of of your machine and observe the fittings on the machine you will likely find the filters there they are just a mesh screen, remove them and clean , then reassemble this should solve your slow filling problem

Water trickles out when filling instead of the steady stream


Check the water inlet valve. Remove the water supply hoses and check the small metal screens inside the valve (especially the hot water side) and check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad solenoid. Here is a photo for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Our washer overflowed last night. no warranty on


Overflow is usually caused by a “stuck-open” fill valve, and the cold water half of the valve is usually the culprit. This can also be caused by the fill system control components: pressure switch, pressure tube, or pressure tube dome/port.First of all, determine whether your overflow condition is mechanical or electrical. Start the washer filling, then turn the timer off by pushing the knob in. If the fill continues, pull the washer plug. If filling continues with the washer unplugged, you have a mechanical problem - nearly always a stuck valve ***’y. Replace the fill valve.i f however, the fill stops when you unplug the machine, you are looking at an electrical fill control problem, Here a small piece of rubber or plastic tubing is handy. Unplug the washer and open the console where you’ll see the pressure switch. This is the switch with a small rubber tube, usually clear, sometimes black, attached. Pull this tube off and replace it with your short tubing. Blow a bit of pressure into the switch using your mouth, and listen for a click, then another when you release the pressure. Hear two clicks? Good! The switch is probably OK, Plug the washer back in (being aware that components in the console are now ‘hot’ and start the washer filling again. With it filling, again blow a bit of pressure into the switch. If the switch is good, the fill should stop and the machine should start to agitate.
This verifies that the pressure switch is working, and causes us to suspect the pressure tubing or a clogged port/dome to which it connects. Wipe off the end of the original tube you removed from the switch, and blow into it. You’re blowing air down into the tank now, and you should feel very little restriction. If it is very hard or impossible to blow through this tube, the tank dome or port is clogged..
Whatever your brand, if air can’t be blown back through this tube, the port or dome will need cleaning.
If you have no trouble blowing pressure through it remove the tube completely and inspect it carefully. This tube must not have the smallest hole in it, and we sometimes see them worn through or, more often, chewed through by mice. while it is the least common cause of overflow, it does happen and is easily overlooked. sometimes this tube will swell and loosen a bit, leaking air where it attaches to the tank fitting. If you suspect this, or the tube fits very loosely, simply cut 3/4” or so off the end and push it back on.

Yes, I think that rubber tube measures water level. But I've never changed one. Good luck.

Cold water continues to run during entire wash cycle


Adrea, sounds like you need a new valve. When it's doing this leaking, unplug the washer. If it's still leaking you know for sure it's the valve. Part number for the model posted is 22002360. Catriver..post back.
