    This is posted under a GE Profile, is it? Could you post the model number? (located either just under the lid or on the back edge of the washer as you look over the back side for most GE machines)

Washer not draining

First is machine spinning? machine only drains in spin mode.
If machine not spinning check lid is closed and check lid switch and plastic plunger that operates the switch located on the lid.
If machine is spinning then most likely a blockage on the drain hoses or pump. if there is water in the machine, lower the rear drain hose to low level, if water starts to flow out the hoses are not blocked, more likely a pump failure. To replace pump first drain all water from the machine with drain hose at low level.
Tilt machine back and remove the belt from below.
Remove the front panel.
To gain access and remove front panel insert a knife or thin blade approx. 4" in the from each side in between the front seam on the front panel, this will release the lid clips, lift and hinge back the lid panel, remove the two screws securing the front panel and remove.
Pump on right hand side at the back, disconnect main hose from pump by squeezing hose clip with pliers (may be a bit of water remaining). Unbolt pump and pull forward with the drain hose attached until it can be disconnected and pump fully removed.
Check pump for blockage and damage to impellor, replace/refit in reverse order.

My GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A Washer does not spinning for drying and it smells like burning rubber. But it does aggitate for washing. It is a belt issue or could be some electronic device issue?

There are several reasons that a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.

  • A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.
  • 2 If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.
  • 3 Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.
  • 4 Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.
  • 5 If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall

  • thanks and good luck.

    Spin and Agitate problem on GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A

    This machine uses an electric water pump. I would check to motor. Remove the front panel and operate the machine to see if the motor is working. Check this by listening to the motor and watching the belt. If you hear the motor but the belt does'nt move then there may be a problem with the pulley or motor clutch assy.

    As far as not draining or pumping water ? Check the wiring from the pump to the control panel. If these wires are alright then i suspect the pump.

    Will not drain during spin???

    Most likely your outlet filter of the machine is choked with dirt or something; clean out the filter & refit. Of course after taking of the wall plug & siphoning out the water from washer.
