I have a GE Washer, Model #WHDSR109J5WW. Water wont stop

Resolved Question:

I have a GE Washer, Model #WHDSR109J5WW. Water won't stop running when the tub
is filling up. We have replaced the water level switch, and the pressure tube is clear.
We have only had the washer for 6 months. What else can be wrong?

If you shut the machine off does the water stop?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Yes the water will stop running if you shut the machine off or unplug the machine.

 

Everything else seems to be working fine.

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.
When did you replace the water level switch?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

Last night

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.
And the tube is on right?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

Yes.

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.
Was the washer empty when you changed the switch no water?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Yes. The washer was unplugged, all incoming water lines were removed and the

tub was empty.

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.
Take the tube that is attached to the outer tub.Start the unit and blow into the tube does the water stop.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

I apologize I'm not at home. Might be a little while before I can get my husband to do this.

 

 

 

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.
Ok let me know what happens.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

The water did not stop by blowing into the tube.

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.

Then the water level switch is bad.

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

We just put a new water level switch on it last night. This the switch that I turn

depending on how much water I need.

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.

As long as it is hooked up right it is bad.It is not the first time this has happened i can't count how many times this has happened to me.

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

 

Is this a warranty item since the washer is only 6 months old?

Expert:  Tom Johnston replied 5 years ago.

Yes call for a warranty service call.
