Washer Will Not Fill With Water

The below suggestions may be helpful if the washer is not filling with water.

  • Check the fuses, breakers and the plug.The washer should be on a separate outlet.
  • Check to ensure the water is turned on to washer.  Ex: The temperature selector is on hot but the hot water is turned off or vice-versa. 1/2 of the water valve on the washer can fail and you will only get hot or cold.To check, try changing water temperature switch to different selections. You should get hot or cold but not warm.
  • It may be necessary to advance the timer slightly and pull the knob out again. The start cycle varies slightly from the graphic on the control panel.

Electronic Models Only: If the Final Spin light comes on and the washer will not fill with water, disconnect the power to the washer for 2 to 3 minutes to reset the controls.

If the washer fills but never runs, make sure the standpipe is 30" high. Any less will cause water to siphon back out of tub and never agitate.

If the above suggestions do not correct the situation, service may be required. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service or to schedule a service appointment on-line.
