GE WJSE3110A washer, won't drain

8 year old washer was working fine, now it won't drain. I took the drain tube off the back to make sure it wasn't kinked or clogged and it was fine. i think it might be the water pump inside. How hard is this to fix myself and also how do you remove the panels to get to the inside parts?

On a scale of 1 -10, I'd rate this about a 3.5 in difficulty.
Un plug machine.
Use a putty knife to push the clips in at the seam of the front panel and the washer's top, about two inches in from each side to allow you to pull the front panel forward and then lift it off the bottom pegs.
If you took off that drain hose, you shouldn't have any water left in the machine, so take the two squeeze hose clamps off the pump hoses, the electrical wires off the pump, and the two 3/8 size bolts holding the pump to the washer's base.
Now check to see if the pump is plugged or obstructed with an object. Replace pump with cleaned out or new pump as necessary.

I looked up your model number. You particular machine allows for wash with the lid open. You nothing happens. On that case I would check the motor capacitor.

My top load washer will not agitate or spin, but will fill and drain. The belt is fine and the agitator will move by moving the belt back and forth. What should I do next? Thanks


if you have aaccess to the belt already,
start the machine let it fill
then keeping an eye on the motor and the clutch underneath it, sounds like your clutch might be slipping..
you will notice immediately the motor will be spinnging but the clutch will not engage
ive included the part number

GE Profile Harmony Top Load Washer - Won't drain


After more thought, it dawned on me another possible reason. In my case, the washer is draining water, but it keeps cycling the pump on and off, thinking that the pump isn't working properly, and the washer doesn't go into its high-speed spin to eke the last bit of water out. It dawned on me that it could be that the pump is fine, but the sensor is lying, saying there is more water when there isn't.

I looked at the tube for the sensor, and noticed a small blockage of white soft stuff. I disconnected the sensor tube from the tub (in the back), managed to squeeze the blockage out, connected it back up, and now it all works fine (about 5 loads and I haven't seen the pump message)!

So if your pump is draining water successfully, but the washer keeps complaining and refuses to go into the high-speed spin, then perhaps this is your situation as well (or a bad sensor, etc.).

Note that I'm pretty sure the blockage is what ended up ruining my first pump. The blockage matches the color and consistency of the caulk/glue that was used to attach the sensor tube, so my suspicion is that too much was put on at the factory and ended up going into the tube, but not enough to cause problems initially. After several years of use and perhaps a bit of water mineral buildup, it finally became a full clog.

Finally, note that, as you may have guessed from the design of the machine, when you disconnect the hoses at the bottom, there's always a few cups or more of water in the two black hoses and the pump that it can't manage to push all the way to the drain.

Samsung Washer WF306LAW stopped draining and won;t spin


Drained the water from the tub into a bucket. Since the water flowed through the disharge tub I knew there were no obstructions in the line. I then took took the discharge pump out and took it apart. Turned out to be a bobby pin in the motor that was jamming the impeller.

Put it all back together and it works just fine. Took me about 2 1/2 hours total to diagnose and repair.

Overflowed on Large load size


i think the water level sensor tube got filled when you had it on it's side, then after the first spin and drain cycle, the tube was again cleared out and ready for real action.
