I have a 1/1/2 year old GE topload Eterna series washer.  Model EWA4500 DOWW

This last week it has taken to refilling (to overflowing) during the "final spin".  It seems to do it on all settings except "small load". 

Why is my washer so mixed up?

Another electronic GE...what is it these days? Can you observe and tell us exactly what is happening...hot/cold/warm, continuous fill or "pulsing".
Mad Mac....Pray to God he's out there....somewhere.

It think GE should give a free shop vac with this washer.  

This week's syptoms were simple.  No matter the temp or load size setting (except for once with a small load) at the moment the "final spin" starts, it also start filling.  Strong and steady.  Our only "fix" so far is to turn off the water supply untlil time to start the next load.

But, as of today. --- It filled, it stopped, it started to agitate, AND THEN it began to fill again.  We caught it overflowing just as the water in the floor was reaching the carpet -- again.

Next time it does "it"  pull the electric cord from the wall.  If it keeps filling you have a bad fill valve.

Hello, my overflowing friend. Follow the directions of our dear friend, Jedi. Should the valve prove defective, you may obtain the replacement valve here.

If, on the other hand, the valve is not the problem, then you would do well to condemn this washer from the Great Satan, GE, to the Pit of Eternal Torment and replace it with a nice Muslim-built washing machine.


Allahu Akbar!
