Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
The door lock on washer seems to be making clicking or buzzing noises and the washer fills and starts to turn to wash then stops. When turned to the spin cycle the water drains but usually will not spin. I lifted the front thinking it was not level & it did start spinning well then leveled the washer & it started not washing or spinning again. The door lock light is on but seems to be blinking out a little.
I have Adora frontloaders and my washer was doing the same thing, not rinsing. I could literally squeeze the water off of the clothes. Come to find out, I needed to clean the filter that is on the inside part behind the bottom panel. Open the washer's door and there is a screw on each corner, take those off and remove the panel, there is a white tube with a gray lid on it, remove the lid (make sure you have a garbage can or something where the gunk can drop into), let it drain out and presto its done!!

Sounds like very worn motor brushes to me, as its trying to turn the drum but has'nt the power needed to maintain any momentum,and the blinking door light is because of the bad cotact from brushes to motor.About £20 for a set of brushes or get an engineer to fit new brushes,but get a price first.

Hi slogjlog - Often when a unit does not spin or agitate, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.
