GE Front Loader Washer (model # not legible)

 

Ok I have this front loader that went thru the pump cycle @ least 7 times before the timer reached 0 minutes on a 38 minute cycle......not showing any codes, but it did complete the entire wash cycle. I watched it go to pump, then spin, then back to pump, then spin then pump w/no water in the drum!

 

Now could it be the level switch or the pump that is starting to lay down? I saw the pump discharge it had good flow so it's making me wonder if the level switch is kinda going squarely.

 

 

I have a pic of the manual that was inside the machine to get a better feel of the model # since this one is really not legible

I will see about making a video tomorrow showing the washer stepping back 3 minutes to repeat the pump cycle again

It's NOT the pump, it just does what it's told and it appears to be doing a good job.

If that pressure tube to the pressure switch has a hole rubbed in it, it will make this machine do all kinds of squirrelly things. http://www.repaircli...1X10129/1168781

thx I will look into that!

 

Question: If the hose has a hole shouldn't I get water on the base of the unit?

No water on the base of the unit from this hose, unless it is leakin really close to the tub... It is a air pressure hose that measures water level by pushing on the diaphragm on the which closes contacts when it gets to the approate level.

Air pressure rises as the water level rises. If there is a pin hole in the tube, air pressure can rise and the machine does all sorts of funky things!

Good find!  You should replace the hose because it's probably become deformed and will slip down the switch nipple again.  And I know how we all love a good nipple slip.
