Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
It was just rinsing and rinsing and neever going into spin, I shut it off and tried to put into spin, nothing so I started the rinse cycle agian and it just does nothing
I just had a similar problem with my GE washer, mod # WPRB9110D1WW. I had 2 different GE service men come out - the 1st one was no help, said to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to reset the electronic controls - worked 1 time doing this. The 2nd service man came out, told him it would stick in the rinse cycle and not spin, also had short fills of water. He immediately popped off the front of the washer (insert a putty knife in 2 locations at the top), and showed me there was a plugged up pressure switch tube (clear plastic) located on the lower left side of the tub; he pulled the tube off the connector to the switch, cleaned it out with a small screw driver, reattached it, and it has worked fine ever since then. It took all of 5 minutes to fix it. He suggested washing some rags with bleach every month or so, said the bleach kills the bacteria build up that causes the stopped up tube. This service man told me, a lot off people replace the electronic control panel needlessly for this problem, and waste their money. I don't know that this is you fix for your proble, but it's something easy to do. Hope this helps!

I was having problems with overflow so I went to this web site to figure out how to open up my washer to look around inside it. I read the article above and it was very helpful.I unplugged the washer and then, I figured out how to open it up. I looked at that tube and it was clogged. That is an air pressure tube, from what i could figure out. The pressure of the water in the tank forces air through the tube to a switch which tells the pump to stop pumping water. If the tube is clogged the air cant get thru and the water overflows the washing machine to the floor. I took a skewer and ran it through the tube careful not to penetrate the tube, and then a bread tie through the other end that attaches to the tank. Always disconnect your power cord from the outlet box before fooling with any of this, you want to be able to say you fixed it.
