Question about GE WBSE2090A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Water won't fill

When I turn the knob to the wash cycle, where the water usually starts to fill, it doesn't do anything. I usually notice the sound of the water 'kicking' in.....but there is no sound at all. When I advance the the knob to the spin cycle, it will spin the clothes, but no water.
I would appreciate any help you can give me in this matter.

If it is doing it regardless of setting water temperature to hot or cold, then the water control valve to which the hoses are attached has failed.
These are junky when new, not generally expensive or difficult to replace.

If one source is working and the other isn't, you may have screens at both ends of the water hoses and one end is clogged.

Removing the back panel is pretty easy and the valve is normally not tough to reach and often held in place by 1 or 2 screws only with 1/4" or 3/8" heads.

If you have a Johnstone Supply in your area, the part will cost about half as much as from GE or Sears.

Will fill with water but doesn't start cycle


One possibility is that the timer motor has failed.
That would mean the timer should not be sounding like there is a clock (ticking) inside, and the knob should not advance as it ticks.
You can listen for the ticking by putting your ear to the control panel on top.
The reason it fills is that that is the first step, and it would do that, even if the times doesn't work sometimes.
Be blessed.

Kenmore Model 21082000 won't fill during wash cycle


Try checking the lid switch. Sometimes the switch goes bad or the stem breakes and when the lid shuts it will not activate the switch. Usually located on the right side of the dryer. When the lid closes it will allow water to.fill. Washers are easy to fix and the part is cheap. Get it from amazon dont pay the crazy price your dealer wants. Trust me, i just fixed my mothers...

Check the pressure switch and hose. Pressure switch is what turns the pump on and off. Trouble is usually in the hose so check it first. Look for the hose to be unattached or clogged.

Beko WMP652W washing machine will start cycle but get stuck at end of wash, doesnt go onto rinse or spin any help please?


see the next steps and use the common sense: God bless you
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
