Why is my GE top load mechanical washer not filling with water?

This washer is brand new. I got one load out of it, now it will not fill. It will drain and spin. It has a water level sensor, so will not agitate because it will not fill. I have one cold water hose attached, the hot water side is plugged with a pipe cap. I only wash in cold water.

You may need to use a Y adapter to feed pressure to both inlets to get the machine to fill. If it senses no pressure on one inlet it wont fill. You can run both inlets to on source. Since you did not post the model number it is hard to say. Some machines also test the water temp to see if it is warm enough to start or it needs to preheat.

The most likely cause of your problem is the lid switch.

Cold water pipe had become frozen. FYI this model of washer has a nice feature whereas you can test each component i.e. valves, by setting the timer and reading the LED's on the front panel. Instructions are in the schematic.

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washer won't agitate or spin . But it does drain the water.

CROSLEY WASHER CAW9244XQ2 NO FILL


Hello Greg Aguilar - Are the house valves turn on fully? Washer not filling with water can be caused by many reasons. Most common cause is a faulty switch that doesn't allow the value inside turn or a kinked fill hose. Other possibilities can be water valve faults, faulty control board, pressure switch or wiring failure. Since you have just recently purchased the washer, I strongly suggestion contacting the manufacturer for a listing of certified techs that can move forward accurately.

Gcxrpo9odoww GE washer .. On fill up, it over flows onto floor?


Fill switch could be bad, or fill tube could be plugged making water not stop and it keeps filling. The fill tube goes from fill load selector switch to bottom of tub. Remove from top and blow it out. If this doesnt work replace water load size selector switch.

My GE Profile top load washer won't hold water


Your drain line is too low or has a blocked air gap. Take the drain line out of the drain. Hold it up high and turn the washer on to fill. If it fills and begins agitation,repair the drain line problem.

GE top loader washer water keeps running will only cut off at faucets"


If disconnecting power does not stop the water fill, replace the washer's inlet water valve. It is the part the fill hoses screw onto on the back of the machine.
