Hello ashankhan,
huuum,happy to assist you!

You said,
I have GE Madellion 870 Washing machine
I guess I have motor problem
motor stops after smoke
Now Motor spins for few second then stops
after 15~ 20 minutes, it will run again for few seconds
if my motor burned then why it still runs for few seconds.

The motor is shot and it still works until it heats up, and then it binds up after it over heats!


How old is the appliance?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy.
Therefore they pay for them selves in only a few years.
You can buy New and save today.

Find the small privately owned and operated appliance store and you will get better service and good treatment! They also will be the best informed!

Bless You, let me know how it goes.

How to fix my Ge washer THAT SPINS SLOWLY AND DOES NOT DRAIN CLOTHES COMPLETELY.The clothes are still wet at the end of the cycle.


Wild guess, It's Out of balance, as a result, it's smart enough to stop spinning. To check, try to rebalance. Maybe overloaded. Remove clothes but fill with water and see if it will spin out. Second guess, belt drive on the bottom of the machine is worn, or belt tensioner is off or bad bearing. Also, possible the motor has a problem and shuts down because it's overheating a bit. If this is the case, though unlikely you will need a service man, but not cheap. If it's an old machine you might consider a replacement.

Samnsung Front Load washer; stopped spinning/agitating and smoke billowed out at end of cycle. Now washer will fill, but not agitate/spin or turn at all. Drum spins smoothly by hand. I'm guessing moto


the DC motors seldom go out but the motor control panel can and a burning oder/smoke would be consistent. I would expect a service technician would have to diagnose. This can get expensive.

Your motor/clutch combo is on the way out. The motor is overheating and turning off. Cools down and restarts.
You need a new motor/clutch combo or a new washer. I do not recommend another GE.

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
