Question about GE WWSE5200B Top Load Washer
Prior to the final spin cycle on a GE top load washer. I hear the drain pump run for a couple of seconds and then stop for a little bit, then run for a couple of seconds and then stop again. When the spin cycle kicks in, because the drain pump doesn't run continuously, the tub starts spinning with water still in the tub. I'm afraid that this is putting too much strain on the spin motor. Eventually all of the water pumps out, but I'm afraid that I'm going to burn up the spin motor. During the first drain after the initial agitation, I can hear drain pump run continuously prior to filling the tub for the first rinse, but I don't hear it pumping continuously prior to the final spin. I removed the front access panel to see if there were any blockages in the sump or drain hoses, but they seemed fine. Spun the pump impeller and it spun freely and quiet. Also noticed that the drain pump is electrical and not belt driven. Could it be that the drain pump motor is overheating and shutting itself off meaning replacement of the drain pump or could it be a timer problem not keeping the drain pump running?
Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, Catriver..post back.

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
