Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer
My washer water fill is not stopping and diverts to the overflow line. Washer has 3 load settings small, large and super. This happens on the the super setting only. Is there an internal fill control sensor or is this an electronic setting? I had previously replaced my timer control because the cycle would not advance, becoming "stuck" at various points in the cycle.
Do I need to replace the load setting device or is there another part I need to look to replace?
WDSR2080G3WW GEWasher-Problem is once filled does not click to the next step like drain, spin, rince cycle etc. I have to do it manually. The washer is 2 yrs old. Could it be the timer already?

It overflows from the tub then:
This can either be a fault in the fill sense tube( small tube connected to the bottom on the outer tub from the sensor at or near the top of the washer housing ) becoming blocked or broken or a fault with the sensor itself. There is a mechanical adjustment for the level but it is a little fiddly to get the adjustment just right.
If it overfills from the drain hose:
then either the drain hose is too low and the water siphons out before it reaches the maximum or there is a tight seal at the drain hose to house drain port which will cause all the water to siphon out, this can also be caused by a drain hose being pushed too far down the house drain port.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello dwl770 - If your washer won't stop filling up with water and overflows the tub, check for one of these problems:
1) Turn off the electricity to the washer. If the water *stopped* filling when power was disconnected, the problem would usually be in the control system of the machine. If the water still continues, then the plunger in the water valve is either stuck open or slow to close. Try turning the water faucets off and on a few times. This small joltmight unstick the water valve. If not, it will need replacing.
2) There could be a problem with the water level switch. Call in a professional.
3) There is a pressure switch hose that is attached to an air dome. This switch tells the washer that there is water in the tub and allows the agitator to start.
- Remove the control panel and you will notice a small hose. See if it popped off of the air dome. If it did, secure it with a zip tie.
If water flow continues, but drains out immediately, then raise the drain hose above the highest water level line of the tub. Do not seal the drain hose to the discharge pipe. This could cause a siphoning action.

On this model of washer you have 4 separate components that could cause overflowing. The water valve, pressure switch, pressure switch hose & the air dome. If you have to turn the water off to prevent overflowing, I would recommend replacing the water valve. If you can turn the timer off & the water stops overflowing, I would recommend checking the pressure switch, hose & air dome.
