GE washer overfills on rinse
« on: June 20, 2012, 09:31:44 PM »

The washer only overfills on rinse cycle.  It seems to me that it's a timer issue since it doesn't overfill on the wash cycle.  This is a timer issue right?

I can't see it being the timer. Check your pressure tube at the bottom where it attaches to to tub. May have soap build up.

It's clean.  And wouldn't a dirty hose cause it to overflow during the wash cycle too?

I have seen cold water side valve stick open, try running a cold water cycle,  when tub is about half full,  pull power cord from wall, if water comtinues to drip or pour in for 15 to 70 sec. Change valve.

Could be water level switch,pressure tube hose or bad water valve not the timer.Also make sure were the pressure tube on the bottom of tub is clean.This tube seems to build or clog up a lot that i stock 2 of them.

Might be worn out bungy straps making you think it is overfilling but it is sloshing. Very common.

No, it's pouring out the over flow spout.  The water fills above the agitator.  I'll keep playing with it.

The timer does not control the water level the water level switch either allows water in or runs the motor. If the tub tubing is unobstructed you need another water fill switch. GE plastic water level switches are notorious for going bad or being intermittent. The old timey metal ones were fantastic but these Bill ClintonNafta ones are crappy. My opinion.

I service an area called "the villiages" here in Florida, well this place is full of ge appliances and I do see a lot of this type of problem. My procedure is to first empty all water from the machine, pull the pressure tube from the tub and blow and actuate the pressure switch a couple times. Also do the same at the opposite end to make sure there is nothing blocking the air path. After that I trim appr 3/8  inch from the pressure tube (on both ends) as they can sometimes suck air and cause this problem, thus possibly flooding the customers home. I rarely have a call back and rarely do I replace the pressure switch.

 i understand your thinking of cutting of the ends because you what a good fit so they don't came off. But i have seem them with a lot of junk growing in them that i would replace them first and they do not cost much.My opinion.

Also with all washer i would tell my customer to use a cleaner like vinegar or any washer cleaner on the market once a month.Example when you do a coupling job on a whirlpool and take off cabinet how many tub are clean.All these plastic tubs build up film and dirt and crap.

I live very near the beach. Sand and sediment is a big problem. Bathing suits and beach towels get loaded with sand and cause problems like burned up direct drive pumps and overfilling washers.
