Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer
My GE washer is acting up. It is about 3 years old. When I start the wash cycle it fills with water, agitates breifly and then sits, then after a few minutes drains, does not spin (even though it sounds like it is), doesn't fill for rinse cycle, agitates soggy clothes, then drains (even though empty), then doesn't spin out. It sounds like it normally does when it moves through the cycles but nothing is happening when I open the lid. Also, the day after the first malfunction, i tried to re-run the load and on Super capacity it overflowed and flooded my house. I re-ran again on Large size and it did not overflow. I had the overflow problem happen about 6months ago when on Super load size. I guess I can't run it on Super. I have no idea why it is acting the way it is though. Any advise you can offer is greatly appreciated!!!!

take the hose off at the pressure switch and blow through it if there are no restrictions then you have a faulty pressure switch let me know how you make out

washing machines of any make or shape have a level sensor, this normally consists of a thin pipe from the lower end of the machine (where there is water) normally enters the bottom of the outer drum casing, this thin rubber or thin plastic pipe goes up to the top of the machine just inside the casing, it leads into a "pressure switch" a circular disc object about 50 cms in diameter on average, also this has about 4 to 6 wires on it, this thin pipe becomes blocked not allowing air to be forced up the tube into the switch, not switching the machine water flow off when it gets to the correct level empty the machine, drain off the water, unplug the power supply, and clear out this pipe, normally its congealed old soap powder, place pipe back as it was, checking for any leak holes in it, if damaged, replace it with new, run machine again to test long winded but i hope i have explained it thoroughly

A common problem is the valve that is located in the back.it is under the screen and screws out.The rubber deteriorates and when it tries to pump out the water it goes back into the washer.
