Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

My GE Front Load Washer (model WPXH214FWW) remains in the 'drain' cycle between the main wash and rinse cycles. It will only move to the next cycle if we manually advance the knob (slight turn)after which it automatically enters the final rinse/spin cycle and ends (unlocks) as normal. This problem occurs in both the 'Regular' and 'Permanent Press' cycles only and not the other 2 cycles (Quick Wash & Delicate). If the problem lies in the timer mechanism can this be easily replaced by myself or should we call a professional technician?

Hi, Doesnt sound like time machinism.
It should move from drain cycle to next as soon as all the water is drained out.
This will happen when the outlet valve (electronic) closes and signals the system to continue to next cycle.
I doubt that this valve might be defective.
If not, the problem should lie with electronics.
Since you say it doesnt affect the Quick wash and Delicate cycle, I doubt if the valve is wrong. Sounds to me like electronic problem.
Its always better to get an authorized person (from GE) to have a look at it.

:)

Before replacing the timer, check the cold water inlet. Rinses usually use cold water only. The screen inside the valve, right where the hose screws onto the machine, may be blocked. If not blocked, check the inlet valve solonoid coil to see if it is open and in need of replacement.

Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Bleach remains in bleach dispenser after washing and even after extra rinse cycle


I put the bleach in with the load right on top of the whites, so I dont have bleach left in the dispenser for the next load. Seems to work okay.

Washer wil not spin or drain out after cycle completed


sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

GE Top Load Washing Machine -- Agitator will not cycle


Agitator's don't spin on wash cycle.

I would suggest washing the clothes without soap until they rinse clear. If you have hard water, the soap will not easily rinse out of clothes, or off of you when you use soap to wash or shower.

Reduce the amount of soap you use in each wash if this is the case. It sounds like your washing machine is working right.
