canyonman1963: Note from Brett Kaufman: Thank for the help on the overfill of GE washing machine. Both ends of the tube were attached, but the vasoline used at the bottom nipple finally clogged the unit. Cleaning that out fixed it. Please include this information in your youtube channel. Thanks for the comments Brett, and thanks for the donation as well!

Craig Cooper: Thank you! After reading the Word of God, I decided to search youtube to see if there were any videos about washer machines overflowing. My initial plans were to purchase a new washer/dryer set with a budget of $900. You saved me any my family time and money. Most importantly I learned a lot about the Lord and myself. I will donate! Thanks for sharing your wisdom! 

AUNDREA WALLER: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! This was a lifesaver for me. As a single parent, I choose to work part time in order to focus on my kids, I can always make more money but I'll never get more time so when my washer started overfilling, I went into panic mode thinking I would have to work some extra hours to buy a new washing machine. My Google search brought me here and I am forever grateful :-)

Ben Sargent: Thanks! My pressure hose was clogged with gunk. I got in there with pipe cleaners but the gunk was too deep and I was pushing it further in. So I took out the hose and blew the gunk out. Just donated $10 to your paypal account. 

fluknick: thanks canyonman1963. great vid, great follow up comments.

vaibhavi Ramchurn: hi sir the hose are properly connected i removed hose and also blew in it and connected it again but the water continues to fill..

Nancy Snow: This was incredibly helpful. I have my washer apart and it was the hose(pressure) that was a problem. However the box that it attaches to at the bottom is really dirty, is there a way to remove that to clean it out?

Wes Summerall: Thank you This was a life saver

Matthew Zalfa: I just fixed my washer machine using this video. Had to cut and clean the bottom end of the pressure hose. The box on the drum is pretty dirty, but hopefully this will buy me another year or two from this machine. Thanks!!

mark cortum: should you be able to blow through the box on the side of the tub with the washer empty?

Mick Fleck: Thank you!

David Anderson: Thanks a million! My pressure hose was clogged and was causing the washer to overflow and not spin. Its now working again.

Evie Barnes: I have a clogged tube but it also looks like the box it connects to on the drum is clogged a bit also. Is there a way to clean that out too?

g wayne: Thanks 

lindsay ross: Stupid question but where can I buy a new pressure tube thing? Just at Lowes or Home Depot?

Jalessa Washington: Thanks for the help my pressure hose was disconnected at the panel I reconnected it and my washer works just fine!

jrfranklin04: Your video was awesome!!! After my laundry room flooded multiple time (u would think I would have learned after the 1st time) I was thinking I was going to have to buy a new washer. You saved me a lot of $$$$. Thanks!!!!

Dave Martinez: hey there canyonman. I have a GE washer that won't stop filling with water (I set it to small load size but it keeps filling beyond the water level for that setting), and I was doing some research online and read that it can be either the water level switch OR the water inlet valve. I noticed that no matter how tight I tightened the hoses on the valve with a channel lock, it still would leak where the hose connectors meet the valve. Since the valve is leaking AND it won't stop filling with water, do you think it might be a bad water inlet valve? Thanks!

Glen Johnson: Thank you for the information, this was very helpful

bruce dadaian: thanks so much . my hoses were connected but clogged... cleaned out and working

Paul Long: I was able to unclog the tube. How do I clean out the box it attaches to on the side of the tub? Your video was a great help.

Philip Hare: Hey just wanted to say a big thank you for your youtube video it saved me time, money and a happy wife which equals happy life.....lol once again thank you. 

sri viswas vissu: how to remove he latex gum on the control module

TRI Guadalajara: The level selector I put on low but doesn't stop the water until is full? Should I change the level selector or just he know?

evelyn Valencia: Hey I have a problem I hope you can answer my question. My washer is the exact same and when i set the washer on small it fills like if it was large sometimes and sometimes it overfills as well any other level medium or large it overfills. And the hose are connected.

raiders5000YT: This was an awesome video, Canyonman. No need to sell me, I'm an automatic subscriber to your channel as of today. I'd only suggest you put at the beginning of your videos...in huge freakin' letters...DON'T PANIC! I feel alot better now. Thank you!

Roxanne King: Thank you so much for posting this video. We had a call in to a repair man who was going to charge $67 just to look at it. Our tube was connected but clogged. My husband was able to clean it out and it works perfectly and it was FREE!

Darien Cruz Music: awesome! 1/2 of my house flooded last night when the washer kept filling. i have this same model, so i will be checking this when i get home

jeremiah johnson: I watched your video thinking maybe this is what's wrong with mine but I got discouraged when I saw that the hose was connected then crossing my fingers that it was disconnected at the other end then too the front off and it was connected too BUT looked a little closer and saw that the tube where it connected to the box it was really dark looking so I unplugged it and THANK GOD it was stopped up with gunk. So I cut the bad end off and reconnected it now my washer works like a champ!!!!!!! Thanks a lot

C Anderson: Thanks!!! Took out the knob and reset it, checked the belt, checked the coupler, was about to start shopping and I watched your video. At least I know my way around my washer now, but I wish I watched your video first. Great job! 

Chris Gray: Thanks Canyonman! Took the front panel off and saw my tube was clogged with black junk. Cleaned it out with a q tip and some rubbing alcohol.... Good as new!

MrBigjoe1960: Mine was the switch. eBay $7.50 including shipping charges.

Jen Albrecht: The hoses were connected but the part of the hose at the bottom of the washer was clogged up. I cleaned it out now it works! Thanks so much for doing this video it saved me a lot of money 

Natalie Hopkin: Thanks so much our hose was clogged and we were able to fix in about a half hour.

James B.: Thank you so much! My hoses were in place but it was clogged at the bottom. It's working perfectly now.

Janis Lancaster: Very helpful video. After watching and following the steps we have been unable to isolate the problem. (The hose is now clear from debris, has no leaks and seems to get a good seal on both nipples.) From previous posts it would seem that the pressure switch might be the problem, but the thing that troubles me is that only the cold water continues to run. The hot water does not, making me think there might be a problem with another part, such as the inlet valve. Is that possible? Is there anything else that we can check? Thank you again. We have learned a lot about how washers work. ;)

James Fureyster: Thanks I fixed my washer because of you saved 400$. When I looked at my hose the one you where talking about. It was connected on both sides but it was plugged with dirt. So what I did stick a tiny wire and scraped the dirt. Because it was on bottom side. Then what I did run hot water through it. And blew from other side while hot water was inside. Thanks. It helped me allot.

hodgesjljr: My daughter's washer overflowed and this was the first video that popped up when I googled. Turns out this video shows the same model she has! Found crud in the tube and the fix was done. Thanks!

john casor: On my front loader; the machine will not fill up much, with water ? a company man came out & replace presser switch and same problem ? so another company man came out & changed the presser Dome & now it fills up & works great!!! but why would a air DOME give high air presser to the presser switch Einstein ?

jeremiah johnson: I watched your video thinking maybe this is what's wrong with mine but I got discouraged when I saw that the hose was connected then crossing my fingers that it was disconnected at the other end then too the front off and it was connected too BUT looked a little closer and saw that the tube where it connected to the box it was really dark looking so I unplugged it and THANK GOD it was stopped up with gunk. So I cut the bad end off and reconnected it now my washer works like a champ!!!!!!! Thanks a lot

Wassup Waddup: Thanks I'll try it and will let you know. 

big balls: thank you very much for this video. very helpful, saved my mom some extra money by just looking this up and following the directions, thhank you

mellio72: Thank you for this video! My wife noticed our washer over filling and it had just started flooding the floor. Luckily our washroom is right next to our garage. I quickly grabbed a broom and started sweeping the water onto the garage floor while she used towels to keep it from coming into the carpet in the rest of the house. After this disaster was diverted I immediately told her the washer was old and we should probably just get a new one. Then I decided to see if their was any info on this model of washer on the Internet. Your video immediately popped up and saved the day! I used my air compressor to blow out the soap scum from the box at the bottom of the tube and it worked! You can't beat a no money repair! Thanks again your video was a life saver. 

Eric Rizzo: Another big "thank you" here! Like others, I had a clog at the lower end of the tube. Can you accept donations via Google Wallet?

mister fix: My problem is the washer overfills on the rinse part of the cycle. It was fine for wash, but not rinse. Any ideas?

W Burwell: You are the best. What is your paypal?

Heath Leist: My washer is filling up without it being on or plugged in. Could it be the pressure hoses or inlet valve problem? 

john casor: Your last statement was unbelievable sir, you state; Maybe the old one had a crack in it, if it had a hole OR a crack in it, it would LOSE PRESSURE & that would Not trigger the air Pressure switch to send a signal to the water control solenoid to stop the water flow & would fill and fill and fill more and more water forever and ever, you sir should read what you are typing and stop giving advice out,
