Two visits by GE Repair techs failed to clearly identify the problem.
After observing many fill ups, I decided the problem was an intermittant failure of the pressure fill switch.
GE wanted $80 for the service call plus $200 to replace switch, and recommended we buy a new Washer for about $400!
For $ 32 PartSelect shipped a new GE Pressure switch in about 3 days!

Openning up the top control panel required removing 4 sheet metal screws with 6 point star heads. The T-15/T-20 star driver was available at ACE hardware for under $2.
Removing the old pressure switch and installing the new switch was described in the GE Service Sheet that came with the washer (very easy).

I installed the part and solved the problem; the machine runs like new!
