Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
GE washer keeps filling with cold water... even when unplugged. I can only stop it by turning off the cold water. Please help.
It sounds like you have a bad fill valve assembly. Normally the valve opens and closes by an electrically activated solenoid which is usually controlled by a pressure switch. However...IF the diaphragm that closes on the valve is broken, has a hole in it, cannot close all the way due to an obstruction, or if your water pressure is too low, the valve will remain open and water will leak by. Since you didn't mention any problems with the hot water side of the valve, I would suspect that water pressure probably isn't a problem. Turn the water off and remove the hoses to the fill valve on the back of the washer. Inspect the cold water side for any obstructions and/or check for any damage to the valve itself. If you don't find anything obvious, replacing the fill valve will probably correct your problem. I hope this helps.
