Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
The cycle fills the tub with water, but does not begin turning the drum in the wash cycle. Tried to get it to spin cycle, still the drum does not turn. The water pump does come on and sounds like it's draining water from the tub. Motor doesnt sound like it's kicking on. Any advice? Possible timer issue?
Thanks to Guest #2 our laundry is back in action and we're not waiting for a serviceperson. We took the front panel off, unscrewed the white plug and was sure our plastic drawer was open to catch the water, a load's worth. We found a small screw driver, 8 or so pony holders, some change, drill bits, bark, games pieces, can tops, etc... unbelievable. Thanks SO MUCH for the hint!

The solution posted by Guest (Solution #2) fixed my issue, thanks. Note: There was over a gallon of water that drained out with lots of debris. The amount of water would depend on how recently you used the machine.

I also have a GE front loader. Mine was doing the same thing so I called out the repair man. He opened up the bottom of the washing machine and opened up the drain in the bottom. (make sure you have a 9X13 pan under it) The drain was full of debris (coins, a couple of ball point pens, and misc) He emptied the debris out and then found that a pencil was still stuck in the tube that feeds into the drain. What happens is that the drain trap gets partly plugged and the water can't drain properly. When there is water backed up the washer cannot spin correctly and therefore your clothes come out dripping wet.
