I am unsure of what your original complaint was, but what you describe now is not a known complaint in my service database. Based on this fact I can only suggest that you unplug it for 10 minutes and then try it again. You may have a grounding issue whenever an unusual complaint arises. I have seen many strange complaints that don't fall under the term of "failure" so a grounding issue is the 1st thing to address. With so many appliances going to electronic controls, and being installed in older homes without the grounded outlets, I foresee a lot more of this type of issue.
Erratic behavior is common symptom of a grounding issue but is not always the problem. Power surges and lightning strikes can make a control board go whacky also. I would recommend that, after you are satisfied that you do have a grounding issue, get an electrician in to ground the outlet properly. Otherwise a factory authorized service tech. should be consulted.

417-44052400 Fills with water, washes, drains/spins then comes to a stop. If I did the diagnostics right it indicates E11? Anybody else have this problem?


e11 is a water problem filling to slow,you could have a problem with your cold water fill line,clogged sediment in the valve or something like that,when it goes into rinse the machine uses cold water so the clothes won't wrinkle and it sounds like it's filling to slow.

As soon as it gets to the rinse cycle it doesn't fill up water, what can i do?


If the only time that it won't fill with water is the rinse cycle is is probably either in the timer or control board.

Have you tested it on all the the setting to determine what works and what doesn't? Will it work on permanent press but not delicate; that type of troubleshooting.

I HAVE A GE WASHER THAT FILLS WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. DOESN'T MATTER WHAT SIZE LOAD, IT CONTINUES TO FILL WITH WATER AND OVERFLOWS. IT STOPS WHEN I HIT THE STOP/PAUSE BUTTON.


There is a pressure sensor that needs to be looked into. USUALLY, there is a chamber, on the outside of the washer tub, and out of the top of it is a small plastic hose. This hose runs up to an electrical switch.
Too much soap, over time, can plug up this system, so the machine has no idea how much water is going in...and keeps filling..... Sometimes the hose comes loose, but this makes a fairly immediate water leak, so I suspect something is plugged.

Fills with water, drains, will not spin. sometimes will not fill


This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.

Locate and clean your empty pump filter.

My washer fills with water on starting a load but then it does nothing won't start spining to empty water


If the machine loads ups with water and does not stop then the water level sensor is fautly . But if the inlet valve stops on fill up but there is no spin of the motor or thereafter there is no spin/rinse or drain then the program controller / drain valve/pump must be checked.
