water not stopping filling is the pressure switch its a long thin tube that goes from the bottom of drum to the front top about the thickness of a pencil this needs taking off clearing through and checking for pin holes then refitting this should solve water problem

SOURCE: GE WJRR4170 washer comes out of overflow tube on super load

I have a 2005 model GE washer that would overfill only on SUPER size load. After looking around on the web, then inside the machine, I checked the tube from the tub to the switch, no problem there. Then I found an adjustment screw on the load size selector / pressure switch (all one piece). I moved it one turn clockwise, then ran a test cycle. I got lucky on the first try... no more overflow, the water comes up just above the top holes in the tub. I hope this will help others.

SOURCE: washer agitates so vigorously water sloshes out of

sounds like to much water check diaphram switch this controls the amont of water taken in this is not normal operation also check that the drum dampers are working ok or have not come adrift, when empty if you was to push the drum back and forth you should feel quite a bit of resistance if it moves easly then i would check the dampers

SOURCE: washer tub wont stop filling and overflows,i

Actually it is kind of a float but the proper name for what your looking for is the water level pressure switch. Without a make and model number I can not show you where it is but on the majority of all models top and front loading it is in the top area of the unit. Most pressure switches that are the manaul select type are inside the control panel and have a small 1/8 inch line connected to the diaphram side.

Reasons for over filling are
1. the pressue swicth is bad (stuck) or defective contacts
2. the 1'8 inch line has become disconnected or has a hole in it due to chaffing somewhere inside the unit.

This should give you an idea of where to look and what to do but for a more detailed description of the location I need a make and model number.

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.

Washer tub overflows and wont stop


The water level in a washing machine is determined by the pressure switch. The switch is located behind the load selector, water level, load size (has various names depending on model and manufacturer) knob on the operator console. If the switch malfunctions, the water will not shut off and the washer will overflow.

Now...before assuming the switch is defective, a common problem that occurs is the small air hose on the pressure switch coming loose or leaking. This air hose attaches from the wash tub to the pressure switch. The pressure swtich senses the change in air pressure as the tub fills and shuts the water off at the selected level. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

To access your pressure switch, unplug the washer and open the operator console. Look for a clear plastic hose. If it is NOT attached, you may have found your problem. Reconnect and test operate.

If it IS attached, check the entire length of the hose all the way to the wash tub for any cracks of leaks. In addition, remove the electrical connection(s) and check for corrosion. Clean if necessary.

If all these preliminary steps don't solve your problem, replace your pressure switch. Read through the link I provided and let me know if you have any questions. I hope you find this information helpful.
