gtwn505m0ws GE washer won't fill
« on: December 23, 2013, 04:50:32 PM »
I have a 2011 GE washer that wont fill. You push the start and the fill light blinks & it beeps. I've checked the valves, level switches, temp switch, fault codes "none" & replaced the control board. Any ideas, does anybody have a service manual  :thanks:

Checked that too, problem is valves not getting voltage to turn on.

When you say that you checked the "Level Switches" do you mean the float too?

Open the door and check the float that is inside and on the bottom of the dishwasher. Make sure it can move up and down freely.
Sometimes things can get stuck under the float keeping it raised up, thus killing the voltage to the water valve.

Yes I do have that manual. It's like the washer is stuck somewhere in the cycle and it doesn't know what to do next.  :thanks:

Does anybody know what the service manual # is for this washer. I'm guessing it start with a 31-something. I would really like to buy 1 if I can. :thanks:

Will it spin? If it does ge has had problem with slim getting in the pressure tube box & hose causing the pressure switch to get stuck thus not letting water in.
