Check the hose that is connected to the water pressur switch for a crack or hole in it, if it is good remove the hose from the pressure switch and blow through the hose if not restricted replace the pressure switch

My ge top load washer will not stop filling up with water


The water level switch shuts the water off when it gets to the desired amount. Also change the water level to low and see if it stops at different level.

My washer fills and doesn't stop. I try to advance it to the spin cycle but none of the cycles work. I changed the lid switch because it wouldn't fill at all. Now it fills and nothing else. Tested...


The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

Water won't shut off on fill


There may be something blocking the pressure tube which measures the water level. This is a tube which runs from the bottom of the drum up to the water level sensor. Disconnect the tube at the drum and check, also blow in the tube and check the water level sensor is working, it should make a clicking sound.

The washer is ovrtflowing with water. It does not stop


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things: water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet valve has gone bad it won’t be able to shut off even when the electricity has been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won’t tell the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that you’ll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Overflow


Check water valve may not be shutting off .
Check water level switch , or hose going to it from tub must be air tight may have pin hole in it.
Water level switch is the one that says small , medium or large on some washers.

Washer filling up improperly


Well its definately not your water level switch, so that only leaves your water fill valve at the back of the washer, the cold valve is stuck open by debris. hope this helps
