GE WPSE5290 Prodigy Performance Profile not Spinning; no obstructions

Hello

My 5 yr old GE Washer, stopped spinning abruptly. I researched this issue on this site. I opened the front, took out the pump, cleaned it, made sure there was nothing obstructing the pump flow, and put it back together. It seemed to work for a short period, after I held the START button in, for a few seconds. Then when I stopped it, it would not restart. There was a slight smell (burn?)

I am not very experienced, in this area, and was able to do all of the above, only because of the expert guidance found on this site.

However, before I purchase a new pump (repairclinic.com - $51) I wanted to ascertain that it was what the actual problem was, and not something else.

Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Are you check darin hose clogged? Test this... wait for a few minutes, pauses of up to three minutes may occur between cycles as the timer advances in steps. For example, there may be a 3-minute delay at the end of agitation and prior to the washer pumping out the water. The pump-out process itself can then take an additional 3 minutes. After the pump out, the washer will begin to spin. Do not manually advance the timer if it's pausing after agitation, as you may miss the pump-out cycle.

Check your house fuses, circuit breakers, and the wall outlet. A loss of electrical power to the washer will cause a failure to spin. To check for power at the wall outlet, carefully plug a small table lamp or hair dryer into the wall outlet and turn it on. If it does not work, you may have blown a fuse, tripped a circuit breaker, or have a defective wall outlet.

Make sure washer lid is down. Some older washers will agitate with lid up, but none will spin with lid up.

Advance timer slightly to make sure timer was not in a pause mode. The word "Spin" may not appear on the dial. Spin occurs in the area just before the "Off" position.

Front load models only: Be sure the dispenser drawer is closed. Front load models only: Is the load too small? Add one or two similar items to help balance out the load.

For models with rotary knob "Spin Speed" selector switch: check that the pointer of knob is not stuck between speed selections.

If machine pumps water out and you are positive that the motor is running, but tub is not spinning, then the problem is mechanical involving a clutch, belt, or possibly the transmission and will require service.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Washer only spins


Have you tried to unplug the machine, sometimes the control boards can get stuck and if you unplug it for say 30 seconds then plug it back in, it may reset itself. otherwise you may have to call someone these are very complicated machines.

My ge prodigy wpse5290 won't stop filling and won't drain, spin or agitate. I replaced both the fill switch and control panel (twice). What else is there?


replace the hose that leads to the fill switch. there is most likely a pin hole sized hole in it not allowing the air pressure to build up and make contact witht the fill switch

Will not drain during spin???


Most likely your outlet filter of the machine is choked with dirt or something; clean out the filter & refit. Of course after taking of the wall plug & siphoning out the water from washer.

Machine Won't Stop


Junkman, going by your model number this looks like an electronic board. Try unplugging the machine at the wall and make sure all the connections to the board are secure. Sometimes in a humid enviroment, I don't know if yours is, corrosion can build up on the connections. Hope this solves the issue.
