To the Dojo,

 

I've went out on two of these washers (GE close-outs; phasing out all-mechanical washers), and in both cases the problem appears exactly the same. Overfilling, pull the front cover, find a pressure switch hose blackened with gookus; after using a length of hose from my local hardware store, problem solved. Anyone else seeing this in the field?

 

Thanks in advance,

Tyrus

  Very common. That's an 06 model by the way.

steamer works good for getting this gunk out...if ya dont clean out the collector box good, you WILL be back for another plugged hose...only way to get at it is from the inside with the basket removed and still it is tough to do. Why does this happen? i figure...1) bad water 2) never using hot water 3) never using bleach 4) piss poor design (typical ge shit)

also because of the fast stroke of the trans the tub moves back and forth a good deal, if you watch one next time with a good amount of soap in the water, you can see a froth get built up and start going up the hose.  Think about the ones you have seen, i see more with the old style trans then i do with the hydrowave system
