Where are the pressure hose ,pressure switch and water valve located at and how to check them.Thanks for your help. Dave F.
Answer David, A proper model number would've been helpful, But in most GE washers all the components you mentioned are located, accessed and serviced through the control panel. Remove power and water supply to the washer. Remove the four screws across the top of the console and roll the console down. Disconnect the air tube WH41X365 from the pressure switch and check for a closed circuit between the empty terminal and common terminals (usually terminal 6 and 7) or according to the wiring diagram. Blow into the end of the hose to make sure there are no twists, kinks or debris in the hose. Blow lightly into the spout on the switch and you should hear the switch "click" when it changes circuits. The water valve WH13X10024 has two solenoids each solenoid should have a resistance reading of 500 to 1000 ohms resistance when tested with a multi meter, with the wires disconnected. This isn't a 100% accurate test. The solenoids could give a proper reading, but the valve could still be faulty, depending on the complaint.
Washer keeps filling and filling to over flow, but not always. Flooded the house then stopped by itself. Once again, it's intermittent.
Answer Hello Ric. If you can stop the water from entering the machine by turning off the timer or unplugging the unit, you will need to look for a bad pressure hose or replace the pressure switch. If the only way to shut off the water is at the shut off for the water hoses, you will need to replace the water valve in the unit.
