    You're pretty sure it's the inlet valve? No chance of it being the load size selector or the water level pressure switch?

You just have to replace the inlet valve, can do it yourself.

    No chance. You can attempt to remove the inlet hoses and clean the sediment screens on the valve as well.

  • prem mathew Jun 14, 2008

    Where does your exit hose lie; it should be maximum 6 inches into the wall standpipe, not too deep or air tight into it. And never at floor level. From the exit point at machine it goes over a certain height & then into the standpipe or sink; the height is usually around 3 feet.

Put the temp select switch on HOT, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. If there is water flow switch to COLD, start machine. If water comes out check the flow amount should be approximately equal or slightly more than flow on HOT. If no water flow, replace inlet water valve. Move selector to WARM, start machine. Now there should be twice the flow of water than there was with HOT and COLD temps. I suspect it is the HOT side of inlet water valve that has failed because machines usually rinse with COLD water.

The washing machine won't fill with water at all. we have cleaned the pump valve and we have checked the water lines. are there any other things that could be causing this problem?


You will want to check and make sure the door handle/lock is switching on. the front load unit will not fill with water with the door open. Check that the latch is engaging.

Washer stopped filling. power still on. turning dial to different positions has no effect.


water level sensor not working or load size selector switch failed. could also be a failed water inlet solenoid valve. Turn it to cold wash and see if water fills again, if not turn it to hot wash and see if it fills again.

Hot or cold water won't come on


If there's no water at all, make these checks:

  • Is there water getting to the machine?
    Check to be sure that someone did not turn off the water, usually the faucet or faucets are on the wall behind the machine.
  • Is the water-volume selector switch set properly and are the control panel buttons pressed in all the way?

  • If you have a Maytag® washer, is the fuse (if there is one) in the control panel at the lid-switch bracket blown?

  • Is there a faint buzzing or humming noise coming from the water-inlet valve? (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If you can't hear anything, the water-inlet valve may not be getting any power. If you can hear some noise and there's water present, you may need to completely replace the water-inlet valve.

Washer Fills HOT WATER ONLY


If you checked the screens at the water inlet valve and they were not clogged, then you probably have a defective water inlet valve and will have to replace it. Hope this helped.

My washer will not stop filling with water and overflows


Turn the washer on and let the water run, while the water is running unplug the power cord if the water stops the inlet valve is ok but if still running the valve is bad and need to be replace if the pump is good you need to test the water level switch, if faulty need to replace.
good luck

GE washing machine overflows water fill will not shut off


Check out your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean(ref manual). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
