I opened the black plastic plug at the back bottom of the machine called the coin catcher. I put my finger in but I don’t feel anything. I tried again but the machine still won’t spin.

Do I need to do something else to the coin catcher?

SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin

this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

SOURCE: Water from GE Washing Machine is coming from under my washer onto the floor

Hello,
I would be happy to help you through this. The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with meatal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement. I just paid $59.99 for mine. It took me less than 30 minutes total to replace. Feel free to ask more questions. I love this kinda stuff. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Washer won't drain, burning smell on rinse cycle. appears to be spinning just not draining


Check the 'coin-catcher'. It's a small compartment in front of the pump. It's supposed to catch all the big stuff (coins, nails, screws, etc) before it damages the pump. Sometimes lint and other items will snag in the coin-catcher and clog it up... Once it clogs, it will not allow enough water to go thru to drain the machine. I would not use the machine until I got it fixed (or looked at by a repairman)... the smell you're getting could be the pump not getting enough water thru and burning itself up....

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

Issue with front loader going through spin cycle


you can try removing the lower acess panel(2 screws along the bottom of front) behind the panel youll see the pump assy mounted to the right, disconnect the hoses and check for debris in the hose assy. the machine will not spin if it cant get rid of water, and it cant get rid of water with a clogged hose. very commom.UNPLUG UNIT FIRST PUMP WIRES ALWAYS LIVE!!!!!!!

Washer wont spin


either a bad motor control board or your coin catcher is full of stuff. i would check the coin catcher first. open the front panel and you can see the pump the coin catcher is the part that comes from the bottom of the tub to the pump.Careful when you take it out there will be water in it and you will have to be ready with a towel or shop vac. put it into drain first before taking apart. it will not drain all of the water.
