Did this video help you?

leo mas: i check the horse and i have change it but water keeps filling even the water pressure works

Sushil Prasad: This video gave me confidence to try fixing my GE washer, which is only 3 years old. The tube was clogged on the side of the box, so cleaned it with warm soap and skewers. But this did not fix the overflow problem. The blow test to switch worked in stopping intake flow. The final trick was to clean the box itself with fine wire - it was clogged with gunk. The washer has successfully completed a full wash cycle! Thanks much!!

David Fox: PERFECT THANKS BIG GUY, WILL DO THESE TASKS WHEN I GET BACK.

financeranger: You are the man...My wife grabbed the Sears add to buy a new washer, we have made the mistake of overloading this one before and it leaked (shocker), then the back drain popped off, this was the third time it leaked, and turns out the lower hose connection (2 inches up) was clogged (barely perceptible, run a pipe cleaner thru to be sure). You saved me $500!!!

whaler: Thank you, this is just what I needed to not spend on a new machine. When that time comes, it will not be a GE, ever again. Thanks!

sunshineferris1: Thank you, thank you, thank you! The hose was loose at the top...not all the way off..putting it all the way back on got mine up and going again!

Daniel Davenport: Thank you so much! We checked ours and the hose was connected on both ends, but the lower end was clogged. It was so nice of you to put this video here, it looks like you have helped a lot of people, including us!

April White: is this the same for Kennmore? I had a washer that flooded and bought another used one and it worked for a week then it did the same exact thing. wouldn't stop filling up and flooded the floor. ???

N3wbi3z0wnz: Oh... Figures why my washer keeps overflowing... Thx for the vid. Now I wont have to wipe up the wet floor 👏👏👏👏👏

Kelly P: You are my sunshine, my hero for the week, month and possibly year!! After nearly flooding our entire basement yesterday I thought I was going to need to replace my washer, which I cannot afford to do, and the tub end is completely gunked up. I am going to do my utmost to clean it, but was wondering if you have any input on whether I can replace the hose with something from a local hardware store or if it is a very specific material. Seriously, you rock!!

roach412: It looks like I have some crap built up INSIDE the pressure chamber. I'm concerned that it will just clog the tube eventually...do you have any recommendations for how to clean this? Some kind of solvent to dissolve the crud perhaps? Doesn't appear to be accessible to clean manually, but I haven't pulled the inner tub yet....

Kenardo: You definately helped me out. I was about to buy a new washer, but didn't because I like to fix stuff. After 2 hours of tearing this machine apart, I couldnt find anything. Then I put it all back together and was going to call a handyman, but he wasn't able to come out that night, so I was watched your video and the line was plugged... Thanks a lot canyonman!

canyonman1963: Thats great! and you are welcome!

canyonman1963: There is not a float in there. The switch operates off of the pressure it detects from that box through the hose as the washer fills with water. Take the hose end off of the switch in the control panel, and see if you can blow through the hose fairly easily. If not, the box is crudded up and needs to be cleaned - not an easy job as the box does not open. Have to use a thin wire to push in where the hose attaches and clear the opening, as well as the opening inside that goes into tub.

florican07: Thanks. This video helped out!

Layton Clark: Sounds good, working on getting the tub out now. I also checked the hose for leaks, i capped off one end and blew through the other checking for leaks. I'm interested to see what the inner tub looks like. Thank you for all your help and suggestions. I hope this last one is the ticket.

Kali Ricks: Thank you so very much!!! It was only the hose, It took me 5 minutes to fix.

Layton Clark: Thank you for a prompt response, I'll go work on that. Initially after I cleaned the hose I blew threw the bottom end and I could hear a click from the load switch. I assume the new switch is in good working order. The box we are referring to has a small amount of debris resting on the bottom. I will try and clean it out. Is there a certain amount of water that should be in the box when it is running a cycle? the box on my washer fills up about 1/4 way.

OLDHED115: Ok its model wcsr2090g8ww

Daniel Bingamon: Was very helpful. In my case, there was a problem with the Local Water Company letting something get in the water, as a result this pressure hose was clogged thus prevented pressure from reaching the switch. I cleaned it out using a thin hollow brass tube and the washer now runs fine. Thank you, saved a lot of money on this.

scottieb251: Thanks for uploading the video! As it turns out, my hose was fine, but the place where the hose connects to the tub was extremely clogged. All it took was a safety pin to break through the layer of crud and it's working like a charm. I never would have even known where to start looking without your video, so thank you very much!

stefaan adriansens: blowing the hose , blowing the hose with water in my mouth , pumping air in the valve with a tyre pump to 30psi and let go, on and on , . while the mashine was running . sudenly it stops pumping water and starts again pumping . , stopped the program , started the pump away program ,turn of , door open and close , choose wash program, connect the hose back on the valve . and start it , yeehaa.

canyonman1963: You are welcome!

canyonman1963: You are welcome....that seems to happen a lot on GE washers

treavor1976: thank you so much for the well made video. I have checked everything you've said here. I checked the pressure switch by blowing into it and it clicks on and off like normal. So I'm kinda stumped at this point. I believe it's not getting enough pressure from the little box on the side of the tub that the hose fits into. Is there a way to check or take that box off? Thanks again for any help.

canyonman1963: Yes, you are correct, remove those, then the panel should tilt forward and you can remove it.

OLDHED115: Hello how do you open the panel on a GE Washing Machine wdsr2080gww. Thanks

canyonman1963: remove the end from the side of the tub, and check for gunk build up blockage either in the tube its self, or in the stem the hose attaches to.

canyonman1963: No, I dont know what resistance you should get at the switch. If you look on the switch, it might be imprinted on it. If not, you could take the reading without any pressure, and then look for the resistance to change steadily as the water fills or you apply pressure to the hose.

OLDHED115: Ok, I just want say thanks

canyonman1963: Well, I don't know. The model number you are giving doesn't come up as a good model number. Perhaps you could check it and if incorrect give me another message with the correct model number.

canyonman1963: You are very welcome! Glad the video helped you out!

canyonman1963: You are quite welcome! Yeah, sometimes you just gotta replace that hose. Good job getting it fixed!

canyonman1963: The water level switch could be bad (the part the hose attaches to in the control panel) or the water valve could be stuck open. Does the machine continue to fill with water even if you haven't started it? If so, water valve must be stuck open. If not, it is probably the water level switch. You will need to test these components to see if they are bad or not before spending money on replacement parts!

canyonman1963: LOL, sure feels great to fix it yourself! and You are Welcome!

canyonman1963: You are welcome, and I am glad you were able to figure out to remove the hose to clear the obstruction!

bigman75797: you are awsome!!! you just save me a ton of money. thank you so much.

stefaan adriansens: oh ok , yes its workin again , after abusing it , :). it didn move for 3 years , i had to shake it awake .

Vincent Hobbes: You saved me hundreds of dollars. Thank you!!! This video really helped.

ThePurplesinger: Couple of questions I can't seem to find anywhere else. Is water supposed to be entering the air hose, if so then how do you take that box off the side of the tub to unplug it? I know my switch is working because it shuts off when I blow into it, but it seems no pressure is being created when plugged into the tub. Thanks for your time.

Lizabeth Smith: I followed your instructions and it worked! The tube at the bottom of the tub was clogged. Cleaned it out and that solved the problem. I got shocked last week when I had water flooded in the hallway, bathroom, and my bedroom! You saved me lots of money, as I was ready to pay a repairman or buy a new washer. Thank you. =)

canyonman1963: You are welcome!

canyonman1963: If the hose is on and not blocked at the tub connection, the next thing to check is the load size switch that the hose connects to in the control panel. Make sure you removed the hose from the side of the tub and made sure it is not blocked with crud inside the nipple the hose goes on to. Sometimes soap and fabric softener will sludge up and block the opening there, which will cause the washer to keep filling since it can not detect the pressure changing from the rising water. Hope this helped!

Soleilsera: Because of you my husband didn't throw our washing machine through the wall lol and we were able to fix it ourselves without calling a repair man that probably would have cost us hundreds of dollars. You are awesome!

Amy Page: Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!! I just spent $500 on fixing my van and was really in no position to pay a repairman to check out my washer. I goggled the problem and found you! Again, Thank You!!

agulus123: Thanks because of your video I fixed my machine bottom of hose was clogged

canyonman1963: You are very welcome!

Layton Clark: you wouldn't happen to know how much resistance I would need to check for to see if maybe I bought a bad switch?

canyonman1963: Yes, water enters the box on the side, and possibly up to the hose as well. If it is plugged up, you have to use a piece of wire or something to unplug it with, as the box is NOT removable. Take the hose off, then try to stick the wire through that opening in to the hole where the water goes into the box, and clear it. If you are unable to do it that way, you will need to remove the agitator and then remove the inner basket so you can clear the hole from the inside of the outer tub. Good Luck!

Linda Truax: OMG.....I cannot believe....but I can....I did it....our pressure hose was clogged at the end that sit next to the tub. The washing machine has been acting up for awhile. I cleaned out the bottom of the hose and it works. This video is awesome...did I mention....It Works...Thanks.
