Ge toploader whse5240D1WW will not fill with water


please the causes and remedies: God bless you
f your Top Load Washer Has No Water Entering Check The Following

Water Inlet Valve
First check the hoses that connect to the water inlet valve. Remove these completely there should be a screen in at least one end and maybe both ends. Clean these screens. Next check the back of the water inlet valve screens and remove and clean. If cleaning these out does not correct the problem you will need to check to make sure you have power going to the water inlet valve. Most top loaders will have 120 volts going to the valve. Check each solenoid on the valve. You will need to have the washer on and turned to a fill cycle when checking. If you have power and still no water replace the water inlet valve. No power replace the control.

Control / Timer

This is less likely the problem but can fail. If you have no power going to the water inlet valve when selecting a fill cycle the timer/ control has failed and you will need to replace the timer.

Water not entering washer


Hi

If the washer won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the pressure/water level switch assembly. Inspect the inlet hose coming to the washer for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the pressure/water level switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

At the end of cycle washer will not stop filling and overflows. maytag neptune fav6800aww


There is a diaphram switch located in the machine at the bottom right in the rear. When you remove the front panel it will be all the way back on the right. It senses the water level. It has three levels it detects. I had a problem with mine filling too much. That should take care of your problem.

Tub completed cycle and wouldn't shut off the water


Is your machine a FAV6800A or FAV9800A? Can you confirm the Model Number and the first two digits Serial Number?

Does water flow into the machine with the 120VAC power plug pulled from the machine?

If it does you have a stuck water valve. If it doesn’t you could have a stuck pressure switch and I can walk you thru how to check in diag mode for that condition.

I know you are frustrated but with some basic troubleshooting we can determine if the issue is a stuck open Water Inlet Valve or a defective Pressure Switch. Because this board doesn’t ask for the Model Number or Serial Number we need to start there.

Here is where the Model and Serial number info is located on the back of your machine.

Water leaking into tub when washer is not in use


Hello, Yes it is the valve leaking, remove 2 screws at the back top of the washer, slide top panel backward and lift, once you have removed the top panel you should see the valve, they are fairly easy to replace. Good luck!! Mike

Cold water doesnt work


Hi, First check and see if there is something plugging the cold water inlet screen. Remove the cold water hose to look at the screen. Another way to test the inlet valve is set the washer to cold wash, listen for the inlet valve to buzz or hold feel the cold inlet fitting and see is you can feel it vibrating.
If there is nothing plugging the inlet screen and the inlet valve doesn't buzz, you will need to change it.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Replacing water inlet valve


First of all, UNPLUG the washer before attempting any repairs, and follow these steps:

1. You will need to remove the washer top panel by loosening the three screws in the back. With the screws removed, the panel slides back, then off.
2. Turn off the water supply valves and disconnect the water inlet hoses.
3. The inlet valve should be very simple to replace at this point. Disconnect the electrical connections and the hose(s) leading from the valve to the dispenser.
4. There should be a a mounting screw holding the inlet valve to the back panel. Remove the old inlet valve and install the new valve in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.

This is should be a fairly straight forward repair that anyone can accomplish without the assistance of a repairman. If you get confused along the way, please post back and let me know. i hope this answers your questions.
