Hello,

I have a variety of issues with my GE top load washer. Hoping I can fix it, so I don't need to purchase a new washer.

1. Today, I did two loads of laundry without an issue. On my third load it will wash, agitate + drain, but will not spin. When this happened, I turn the knob to "drain & spin". That didn't work, it just hummed. I took the clothes out and ran a test in service mode, and it spun. Clothes back in, won't spin.

2. Last week it turn itself on and tried to drain..

3. Some days it fills then immediately drained.

I've done the service update. That didn't seem to work. Any other ideas? (Hoping I don't need an entirely new control board)

Thanks Jake. Purchased a new control board. Installed it today. The washer completed 4 loads, on the fifth load it filled and then immediately drained. Fault code was "fabric softener dispenser". Any idea?

Excellent, glad to hear its working much better.(y)

For the fabric softener dispenser error, that relates to the water inlet valve.

You will need to turn the water OFF to the machine, then remove the fill hoses and clean out the filter screens and see if that solves it.

If not, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve too.

Here's the water inlet valve for your model:
