Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
How do I get to the pump to see if it is clogged. My wife washed a stuffed animal and tore open and since then the washer will not drain
SOURCE: clogged washer pump
you have to take out the little motor that drains the water and clean it up , first you open the front panel or back panel depending of the model , second follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its attached to the DRAIN MOTOR , remove the motor for cleaning , its probably clogged.

Washer will not drain or spin. Got the water out andf tried it . It would spin and seem to drain what little was left in the drum. When I added about 1" of water it would not drian or spin. Drum sets at an angle also.

I would be happy to help you through this. The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with meatal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement. I just paid $59.99 for mine. It took me less than 30 minutes total to replace. Feel free to ask more questions. I love this kinda stuff. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

depends on what type of washer it is but it should have a filter on the front bottom of it ,some times they have a plastic cover over them just remove the cover at the bottom of the washer and then turn the filter and pull it out and clean.
hope this helps you

We had the same problem and it was really easy to fix. On the dial for the load size, turn it all the way to the right to "reset" and then check to see if it resolves the problem. It did with our washer same model and problem. Best wishes.... Doug
