You need to either clean out the water valve or better yet replace it. The water valve is the part where the fills hoses connect to the machine. Hope this helps.

When you start it the engine just runs and the machine doesn't fill up with water


Just beyond your filter that you cleaned you will feel some blades, plastic. These blades should turn freely, these are the pump blades, something shd be blocking it, which over flowed from your dirty filter.

Another thing is did your washer not fill with water on starting it? Well take of the power plug from the wall (imprtant before all these jobs!) turn off the washer, turn off the wall valve, unscrew the pipes to see if water flow is gud, check to see if anything is blocking your filters and he washing machine inlet valve. It has a fine filter and is detachable to clean.

Helped?

Usually when you have a washer that will not drain, first check if the drain hose is kinked or too high above the washer (8 ft is the limit of the washer pump). Next check if there is a blockage in your drain (often a stand pipe) or if the air can't get into the stand pipe. The final thing to check is for foreign objects in the pump to drain hose area that block the drain. (This requires getting into the pump and disconnecting the hose. Keep a bucket ready to catch the water that will pour out of the washer.)

GE has the manuals for many of their appliances on their support site: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number and click submit. The direct link to the manual for the WSXH208V1WW is http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90256.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(at least my washer won't spin if the water can't pump out. On a few washers (non-high efficiency) the solenoid has failed to open for the pump to drain the water.)

Every time I turn the washer off it will keep dripping out of the fill tube at the back of the washer. It will fill the washer tub half full


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly
Here is what you can do to try and remove the debris from inside the water valve assembly.

-Turn off BOTH wall hose connections
-Remove ONE hose assembly completely and also remove the screen from the hose connection area of the water valve by using a thin knife blade on the outside of the screen
-Leaving the screen removed connect ONE hose to the water valve hand tight and place the free end in a bucket.
-Turn on the remaining wall connection water hose
-Select WARM wash and start washer fill cycle
-Tap on the water valve FILL HOSE fitting for about 20 seconds (Your trying to loosen / remove debris) Do NOT use a hammer.... (Handle ok) but be serious with your tapping.

STOP FILL CYCLE
-Reinstall the removed inlet screen and connect hose to water valve and wall connection.
Repeat procedure for the 2nd hose.

This will clear about 50% of the water fill problems. If it does not cease the dripping while off routine you will have to replace the water valve assembly (Item 17) This link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5177917&diagram_id=1341192#d1341192

Water wont shutoff when filling


if you unplug the machine and it still fills with water, Then your water valve is bad, Use the wall shut off to find out what side is bad by turning on one at a time so you can find out if hot or cold valve.

if the water quits filling when you unplug the machine then you have a water level switch problem or the water level switch hose is disconected or cloged.

Washer seems to cycle fine but the water will over fill


Hello, fill the washing machine with water and when the water is about 1/2 full of water,unplug the washers power cord from the wall outlet.if the water keeps flowing into the washing machine with the power cord pulled the "fill valve"(where the hot and cold hoses are attached to the washer) has mechanically stuck open and will have to be replaced. if the water shuts off when you remove it's power cord from the wall outlet,try plugging the washer in and out a couple more times and if the water stops each time the fill valve indicates as being good.

Thanks

My front loading washer always fills with water when i am not using it


It sounds like one of the automatic water fill valves in the machine is leaking water when washer is off and the valves are closed. There are two manual water supply valves at the wall behind the washer, one for hot water and one for cold. Close the manual hot water supply valve and allow the washer to sit and see if it fills with water. If it does fill, then the cold water automatic fill valve is leaking. If not, then open the hot water manual supply valve and close the cold water manual supply valve. Allow the washer to sit again and see if it fills. If it does then the hot water automatic fill valve is leaking. Replace the leaking valve in your washer. You can order the new valve online using washer brand and model number on a appliance parts web store, or maybe even find it at a local appliance parts store.

My GE washer wont stop filling in any cycle. Even if you pull out the plug. Leaks everywhere. I blew into water level switch hose and it clicks. Model number WBXR1060T. Thank you


If water continues to fill and you have unplugged the washer from the wall then your fill valve is stuck open and needs to be replaced. Turning off the water at the wall faucet should stop the water. The fill valve is what the hoses are attached to at the washer.

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve

Water Dripping


you need a new fill valve, even if you ulplug the washer does it still drip? If yes then you do need a new fill valve. Just turn water off at the wall so your machine don't overfill.
