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!
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
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!!!!
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?
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?
mark cortum: should you be able to blow through the box on the side of the tub with the
David Anderson: Thanks a million! My pressure hose was clogged and was causing the washer
to overflow and not spin. Its now working again.
sri viswas vissu: how to remove he latex gum on the control module
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.
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?
Jalessa Washington: Thanks for the help my pressure hose was disconnected at the panel I
reconnected it and my washer works just fine!
Mick Fleck: Thank you!
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.
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.
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
Robert Rosati: Thank you!!!!! The tube, where it connects to the bottom of the tub, was
clogged. I took it off, cleaned it out....and wallah!!!!!
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
bruce dadaian: thanks so much . my hoses were connected but clogged... cleaned out and
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
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
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?
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?
fluknick: thanks canyonman1963.
great vid, great follow up comments.
David Fox: PERFECT THANKS BIG GUY, WILL DO THESE TASKS WHEN I GET BACK.
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!
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!
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
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.
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!
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,
David Sofranko: Another clogged hose here. Thanks so much for posting this video. Very
MrBigjoe1960: Mine was the switch. eBay $7.50 including shipping charges.
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 ?
James B.: Thank you so much! My hoses were in place but it was clogged at the bottom.
It's working perfectly now.
leo mas: i check the horse and i have change it but water keeps filling even the
water pressure works
W Burwell: You are the best. What is your paypal?
Damon Shattuck: Do you have any idea why the hose would keep coming off? Monday night our
machine kept filling with water and flooded our laundry room. I saw your
video and reattached the hose. It worked okay for a day and then the hose
came loose again. Wondering if there is something else to cause this or if
we need to look at new machines (we have a frigidaire stacked unit).
Demitrios Delpol: It it goesss on the nipple thats what she said!!!!!
Heath Leist: My washer is filling up without it being on or plugged in. Could it be the
pressure hoses or inlet valve problem?
Natalie Hopkin: Thanks so much our hose was clogged and we were able to fix in about a half
Michael Groninga: Water is not filling in my box. As soon as I detach the hose the water will
start filling in the box. I can blow air thru bot sides of tube. Not sure
why this started, I had just tightened the clamps on the pump and now the
sensors are not working.... Please help! Thank you :)
Mary Maldonado: I had to change the panel because the start button was broken. But someone
too the hose off. So when I put it back in it started overfilling. I blow
up the hose and I can hear it bubbling. And it won't go to the next cycle.
If it was bubbling doesn't that means that's not clogged? What else can I
desertdispatch: can that pressure switch be tested with a meter?. reason I ask is lets
assume for a minute and take the same problem overfills / overflows and
lets assume that the hoses were connected on both ends when you
checked. Now what?
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!!
titosuave123: Thx man it worked for me
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!
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
