Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
I just received a new washer and dryer tonight as a "housewarming" gift. They are matching GE front loading units. I believe that the washer is a WSXH208A. Don't have the manual in front of me fight now. I tried to wash the first load tonight and about 3 or 4 minutes into the wash cycle, the machine stopped and the start / pause button started blinking. I've been here for HOURS reading all of the similar reports, but none quite match my problem. I have ensured that the water is on. I have ensured that the drain as well as the filter are not clogged. The hose is not kinked. As a matter of fact, the water will drain / pump out fine. The drum just will not spin. When I turn the unit on, I can hear the pump running, but the drum will not turn now. It did for the first several munites, but now nothing.
I can manually spin the drum freely, but it will not turn on it's own. I did open the rear and make sure that the belt was not broken or slipping or off. All was fine with it. The motor does not seem to be running.
Since this was a gift, I don't know where to take it back to and don't want to ask where it was purchased or how much they spent for it. I don't have the receipt, but I do still have the box.
Any ideas? Before I have to embarrass myself and my friends by asking for a receipt?
I found the solution to clean the lint filter on the GE Adora. Go tohttp://www.instructables.com/id/GE-Adora-Lint-Filter-Cleanout/?download=pdf
Ijust did this and my washer is now running instead of the flashingstart/pause and door unlocking. It was fairly easy. Make sure you havetowels and a flat pan to catch the water if you don't have the machineon a riser. There may be water inside so a wet vac may be helpful too.Once my washer finishes what was in it, I have these funky towels toclean. You'll be very surprised what you find in the filter! Best ofluck!

all you can really do is to make sure the motor plug and socket electrical connection is fully home - may have been dislodged in transit.

When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...
