Customer Question
Ge hydrowave washer keeps...

Ge hydrowave washer keeps draining and won't allow washer to fill w/water on rinse cycle. It keeps draining and spinning. I put a new control board on, a 4 year old motor, changed drain pump. So do you think it could be mode shifter ?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

At least 10 years old, mode is GE Profile top load model #GTWN4250D1WS

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes i am a tech.

Hello, I'm Ray and would be happy to help you. The only thing that would caused what you are describing is the control. Is this the same thing it was doing before you changed it? The mode shifter only makes it agitate and spin. You may have gotten a faulty board, that's I was asking if it did that before changing it. Your drain hose isn't to for the standpipe? The pressure switch may be doing something crazy like that and confusing the board. I saw that happen on whirlpool a few times

I also did the diagnostic test on control board and motor and it passed, i did the drain hose thing and yes i was having this problem before i changed board. It would stop during middle of drain for about a minute and a half and then start up again and finish draining then spin out then stop and try to fill w/rinse water again only to stop suddenly and start draining.

check your shifter connection by the motor. What is strange is that it's not putting water in only on rinse and spin cycle. The shifter has nothing to do with the fill or water system..
