GE makes some of the best washing machines in the world. They are durable, reliable, efficient and reasonably priced. Washing machines are sturdy appliances and are not always taken care of. Lack of maintenance and prolonging repairs can lead to uncertain and expected problems. Not only should you be proactive with your maintenance but you must also use a GE profile washing machine as per the recommendations. Here are some GE profile washing machine troubleshooting tips that will come handy when the problems emerge.
Washer Does Not Fill
You will have sporadic scenarios when the washer will not fill. Water flow is the main cause of concern here. No washing machine is immune to this problem and GE is no exception. Begin the diagnosis by checking the washer, the cold and hot faucets and ensure they are fully turned on, check the water pressure as GE washing machines usually require anywhere from 10 to 120 pounds per square inch of water pressure. Inspect the fill hoses and look for blockage or clogs. See if there are any kinks in the hoses. You may have to replace the hoses if they are kinked or clogged beyond repair and cleaning. Also, inspect the filter screen in the hoses. You can clean these with a toothpick or brush.
Check the Lid
If you are having any problem in the cycle, then check the lid. Usually, this problem occurs when the lid is not properly closed. Any kind of hard or rigid substance can prevent the lid from closing properly. You might have issues with the washer wherein it would not spin or drain properly or agitate to handle the load. Imbalanced load could be an issue here. There is a simple solution here. Just redistribute the load.
Leaking Washing Machine
If you have leaks in your GE profile washing machine, then it could be due to leaks around the washer door. The door gasket may be damaged. There could be debris or dirt clogging the door and leading to vents or tiny gaps. A leaking washer may be an issue and you should check the drainage hose. Suds can also be the main cause. Using less amount of detergent when you have such issues would be helpful. Excessive use of detergent will unnecessarily lead to more suds and debris.
Always run the self-diagnostic checks of GE washing machines, have the instruction manual or user handbook with you and be ready with the tools you need to check the various components.
