Intermittent overflow. You never knew when it was going to happen. Called GE Service, guy comes out and $110 dollars later he tells me there is nothing wrong with the wash machine. I must have overloaded it. Days later the machine overflowed 3 more times.

Got on line and hooked up with Parts Select and found thru similar stories that the overflow problem with this GE wash machine was a common problem and was explaned what parts were needed and described how to access the parts inside the control panel.
So I ordered water valve 1155105 and pressure switch 269820. I pulled the plug and turned the water supply off and disconnected the hoses. Pulled the knobs off the front panel and removed 4
screws. I identified the parts and how they were attached. Removed the wires and removed and replaced the parts. Put everything back together and the machine works great!
