WSXH208V1WW front load washer won't drain - faulty pump?

I have a WSXH208V1WW front load washer that will not fully drain. I have taken apart all the tubes and cleaned out as much as I can. I cannot seem to access any filters. There were a few coins and papers in the tubes but nothing significant (like I have read about in other forums). I tried to run again and still will not drain.

I think the pump may be broken? But I can't seem to easily get it out. So now I feel like my options are to hire the GE service person for $80 bucks plus a $100+ part? Am I missing something? Anything more I can do from home? Is there a way to test/tell if the pump is broken w/o taking it out?

Thanks!!

I found the solution to clean the lint filter on the GE Adora. Go to http://www.instructables.com/id/GE-Adora-Lint-Filter-Cleanout/?download=pdf

I just did this and my washer is now running instead of the flashing start/pause and door unlocking. It was fairly easy. Make sure you have towels and a flat pan to catch the water if you don't have the machine on 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 to clean. You'll be very surprised what you find in the filter! Best of luck!

Won't drain. Motor wont come on.


Possible fault with the program controller unit. Now if there is no power to the drain then it can be due to the controller and if there is power with no drain then it can be due to faulty drain motor or the drain valve beingg choked or clogged;

Usually when you have a washer that will not drain, first check if the drain hose is kinked or too high above the washer (8 ft is the limit of the washer pump). Next check if there is a blockage in your drain (often a stand pipe) or if the air can't get into the stand pipe. The final thing to check is for foreign objects in the pump to drain hose area that block the drain. (This requires getting into the pump and disconnecting the hose. Keep a bucket ready to catch the water that will pour out of the washer.)

GE has the manuals for many of their appliances on their support site: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ . Enter the model number and click submit. The direct link to the manual for the WSXH208V1WW is http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90256.pdf .

I hope this helps.

(at least my washer won't spin if the water can't pump out. On a few washers (non-high efficiency) the solenoid has failed to open for the pump to drain the water.)

Error: nd Water won't drain; Sounds possibly like motor on pump may not be working.


This washer uses an electric pump. Sometimes objects get into the pump. Take it apart and look for objects.
