Hey guys....Im looking for a wpsr3120w0ww GE washer manual. I didnt see it on the drive.

This one fills and wont stop filling. The first time I ran it, it filled and drained at the same time, then agitated. Now it just wont stop filling. Im still trying to learn the laundry side, I would think a timer. What do You guys think?

  Simultaneously filled and drained, as in drain pump running? Bad timer. Won't stop filling? Water level pressure switch not working. Check for clogged pressure hose and air dome on lower left side of tub.

Here's the mini-manual for this model.

ok.......yes the thing was filling and drain pump was running at the same time, so timer intermittently malfunctions. It also spins but doesnt agitate, (but is trying to) would that be the coupling between the motor and trans? Also I found some one was messing with the timer and pulled off the press hose from the switch.....wouldnt that make it overfill too?

Are the direct drive washers using that triangular plastic coupling, while the belt drive versions use a "drive bock" underneath the agitator?

Are you still talking about a G.E. washer, like this topic seemed to be about to start with.

  It's not going to stop filling with pressure hose disconnected and timer will not advance. This GE belt drive "T" model is totally different than the Whirlpool direct drive that you are alluding to.

  No, what is the washer doing when it should be agitating? Is the motor running? The drive block you are referring to is called a split ring on GE washers. It's function is to lock the inner tub to the transmission drive tube. A faulty split ring would not prevent agitation from working. If the motor runs during agitation cycle but agitator is not going back and forth, the agitator coupler may be stripped out.

when it should be agitating its trying to agitate like if you push down on the agitator you can feel it wanting to move not really catching I guess

  Stripped coupler. Place a strap under the agitator and yank it upwards forcefully to pop the agitator off. Take the bolt out and remove the coupler. Look up underneath the coupler and you'll see the stripped out splines inside the coupler. Replace using the link provided.
