Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

We replaced our washer today with a GE Profile WHSB8000BOWW and are having the SAME problem as with the old washer....???? The washer will fill but doesn't hold water through the cycle. It continually fills, agitates, drains, refills, agitates, drains, refills.....and takes a VERY long time to wash a single load of clothes. Our washer drains directly outside and we watch the water continually drain through the washing cycle. The new GE Profile was given to us by friends today, so it is not brand-new/under warranty. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,

Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

SOURCE: Agitator problem

Check to see if any thing is under the agitator. If not then maybe the bearings going out or other part of machine . Besure the cap is tighten so agatator don't come off. Check for ware on agatator top to the tighting nut.

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.

My washer wont fill. Everything seems to be working on the digital screen. What could be wrong?


It sounds as though the electric solenoids in the water inlet housing (where the hoses attach to) are defective or burnt out!

There is no electric printout so it will not turn on this is an old ge profile model #143c8954p011


Plug in a lamp or radio at the outlet where the washer is plugged in.
Does it work?
If so, re-plug the washer.
Set it for spin and turn it on.
Does it spin?
If so, set for hot water fill.
Does it fill?
If so, replace the water inlet valve.

GE Profile will not run cycles. Runs water continuously.


OK, i would do a hard reset by unplugging for 2 minutes. if the problem still exists, this is defiantly a malfunctioning relay. it will have to be replaced.

Ge profile whsb8000bocc


Washer is most likely trying to fill with cold rinse water and the inlet screen is blocked or the cold water solenoid is bad. If you set washer to wash cold only it will not fill or fill very slowly. When you set it to warm or hot you are getting almost all hot. Clean inlet screen or replace inlet water valve.
