GE 4.6 cu. ft. Capacity Washer with Tide PODS Dispense

Washing Machine / Fault Codes GE 4.6 cu. ft. Capacity Washer with Tide PODS Dispense:

Dual-action agitator: Experience a high level of clean with a dual-action agitator that enables a reversing, powerful wash action.

Deep Fill: Customize your water-fill levels with just the touch of a button and fill the tub with as much water as you want so you can wash your way.

  • What is the Problem?
  • What is the possible causes?
  • What To Do?


GE 4.6 cu. ft. Capacity Washer Small amount of water remaining in dispenser (on some models) at end of cycle

Normal dispenser operation: It is normal for a small amount of water to remain in dispenser after the cycle.


Short spray and delay after pushing the Start button

Lid was opened and closed between cycle selection and start: This is normal. See START-UP SEQUENCE in the Safety Instructions section.


Water level seems low

This is normal: Water may not cover the top


Low water flow

Water valve screens are stopped up: Turn off the water source and remove the water connection hoses from the upper back of the washer and the water faucets. Clean both the hose screens (if so equipped) and the screens in the machine using a brush or a toothpick. Reconnect the hoses and turn the water.


Water siphoning out of washer

Drain standpipe is too low or hose too far into standpipe: The drain hose must exceed 30” height at some point between the washer back and the drain pipe. Use anti-siphon clip. See the Installation Instructions.


Too many suds

Soft water: Try less detergent.

Too much detergent: Measure your detergent carefully. Use less soap if you have soft water, a smaller load or a lightly soiled load.

Type of detergent: Switch to High Efficiency detergent such as Tide HE Turbo™.


Water leaks

Type of detergent: Switch to High Efficiency detergent such as Tide HE Turbo™.

Using too much detergent in washer: Use less detergent. Use less soap if you have soft water, a smaller load or a lightly soiled load.

Fill hoses or drain hose is improperly connected: Make sure hose connections are tight at faucets and rubber washers are installed. Make sure end of drain hose is correctly inserted in and secured to drain facility

Household drain clogged: Check household plumbing. You may need to call a plumber.

Drain hose rubs on wall: Make sure drain hose does not make contact with the wall. May cause excessive wear on the hose.

Constant water pressure to fill hoses at water source: Tighten hoses at the faucets. Check condition of the fill hoses; they should be replaced every 5 years.

Water temperature seems incorrect

Cooler water temperatures provide improved energy efficiency: New laundry detergents have been formulated to work with cooler water temperatures without affecting wash performance.

Water supply is turned off or improperly connected: Turn both hot and cold faucets fully on and make sure hoses are connected to correct faucets. NOTE: Water valves are marked “H” and “C”.

Water valve screens are stopped up: Turn off the water source and remove the water connection hoses from the upper back of the washer and the water faucets. Clean both the hose screens (if so equipped) and the screens in the machine using a brush or a toothpick. Reconnect the hoses and turn the water back on. Check to ensure there are no leaks at the connections.

Cool/Cold Water when selecting Hot: This is normal. The washer senses water temperature (on some models) and optimizes for best results. Cold water is added periodically when hot is selected.
