Question about GE WPRB9220D Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a GE WLE4000B1WW Washer and it works flawlessly 50 percent of the time. The other times it will fill then stop and not complete the wash cycle. When I hear that the washer has stopped, I will just push the button to reactivate the cycle and it continues exactly where it left off. Any idea's what may be causing the malfunction?

This is a problem with the lid switch. Replace the lid switch with this part.

I have a GE stackable GUD27GSSJWW - we are on the second one with the same issue. The washer will begin to fill (wash or rinse cycle) and then just stop and the lights start flashing.

It may not be the washer. Have you checked that the filter on the water inlet has not got partially blocked with rubbish from your water. This is a common reason for a fault like this. You will need to remove the washer, remove the water inlet hoses and then remove the inlet filters and clean them. I was given a very expensive washer a few years back that refused to work for the owner who bought a new one. After cleaning the filter, it continued to work for many years after that.

GE washer wle4000b1ww won't spin with clothes in it but will spin when empty.also the spin light blinks,I have checked the belt and the belt is good please help mother of 2 thank u

Normally, when a washer will spin without cloths, the washer is doing all the basics correctly. But when you add cloths, which means adding weight, the washer will not, then its a suspension rods issue. The suspension rods absorb the weight and allow the washer to spin.

Wont stop filling

im not expert but i had same problem twice, i almost hire some one to come look at it but was charging me $50 just to do so, ridiculous huh, then i just started to ask around, opened the washer front panel, no idea what i was looking at, searched on the internet and boom, gave me answers and videos of possibles causes and solutions...and i didn't have to expend a penny, so here my solution, i have a GE washer but most washers have this same system for stop the filling process, on the tank (at least on mine) you'll see a little box on the right connected to a small hose that goes up and around to the washer switches panel, at the box i disconnected the hose and happened to be plugged with dirt and grease (my bad since i have been washing my work coveralls , big mistake lol) so, i disconnected it both sides cleaned inside with anti grease and blow in it (seems like stopping the auto filling works when in the little box on the side it gets filled and the air pressure goes into the hose to the switch and triggers the stop and start the washing cycle) the second time i had problems it flooded the laundry room because didn't stop filling , so i did the same but this time i only disconnected the hose at the box end and with the filling going i blow into the hose, didn't stop, cleaned the end of the hose and tried again and this time when i blow into the hose the pressure got to the switch and stopped the filling and started the washing, try and follow my example and you will save a lot of money trying before you hire some one else to do it for you, specially when most of the time are simple little thing you can fix by yourself with only doing a little research, good luck and hopefully i could help with your problem :) (look for videos at youtube)

GE WPRE8100 washer starts to fill and immediately shuts off

I would suspect the washer control panel or timer is the problem.

Why does it take so long to run a load of laundry in my GE Profile front loading washer?

Check the water supply, if the water supply is restricted in some way it will take a long time to fill, the m/c may need to fill 4 or 5 times in a complete wash.

GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.

try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!

Wash cycles are increasing in time required to complete

cold water valve in back could be plugged causing longer fill times.
