I've posted on this subject before. Your washer will not cycle correctly if there are any restrictions in the pump and this usually means that during doing the wash things have been transferred from your clothes generally the pockets. ..These things usually get lodged in the pump. When the washer enters the spin cycle the pump kicks in and pumps out the excess water. If you can get the back off the washer you will see a semi - round object that is usually white with 2 hoses coming out of it. One hose is the water in let hose the other one is attached to the drain hose that goes into the sewer drain outside of the washer. Make sure that the washer is unplugged then remove the hose that goes to the outside drain. Now with a flashlight look inside of the pump and see if you can see any debris or foreign objects. If you see anything in there you will have to remove these things through the hole where the hose connects. After removing debris replace hose inspect the surrounding area for obvious reasons why the washer may have stopped like look to make sure that the belt on the drive motor is ok. With no other signs of problems replace the back of the washer andplug it back in and try to sstart the washer just like you were just starting a new load of laundry. G
replace the brushes in the motor _around 20 quid and usually the first thing to start messing up when the brushes get short is the fast spin _UNPLUG IT FIRST. you might also like to clean up the com with a bit of wet and dry
Suggestion: WARNING: POWER OFF and UNPLUG WASHER. There are intentionally ungrounded areas inside machine. Behind the kick panel at the bottom of the front (Two screws on the bottom front of the panel) you will find the Technical Data Sheet for the washer. Follow the instructions for running Diagnostics on page 2. When u get to step 9 the washer will test the spin cycle (give it a minute or so to start). That will at least see if your belt theory is correct. I am NOT a washer tech so I am only telling you what I have done with the same problem. I have not yet repaired it as this is a new problem, but the diags gave me an error code I am seeking info on now. Good luck!
remove the toe kick panel at the bottom of your washer and inside you will find the drain pump. once you locate the pump, pull washer from wall so you can tilt it back against the wall. Then remove the cap in the front of the drain pump and clean, if it is clean , set washer back down and remove the wires from pump motor. set your multimeter to VAC and plug into wires. set the washer to drain&spin and start. if you have 120 volts replace the drain pump. if you have no voltage replace main control. go to this guidance and location of parts. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=WFW8400TE&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0
By lifting the lid you are performing the job of the timer. In your unit you have a neutral drain transmission and the timer is programmed to end the washing cycle by stopping the motor. When it starts back up, it reverses and the transmission is in the neutral state. The water drains and after about 3-4 minutes, the timer is suppose to disconnect power to the motor thus stopping the transmission inducing the transmission to shift into spin. When it starts back up, it spins. So when you lift the lid, you pause the motor and the transmission shifts. Close it and it spins. Replace the timer and you will be fine. If I can help further.....
Thanks for the question On a ge washer If you over load or the washer did not drain fast enough or over suds ing , when the washer starts to spin the forse of the spin will push water up the pressure switch hose causing the washer to start & stop spinning Thanks for the question THe appliance doc
If it is draining, then the motor is ok.
If it is agitating properly, then the motor coupler is ok.
This leaves the gearcase, clutch, basketdrive(brake), basket drive block, or timer.
Raise the lid and hold the lid switch down. Start a rinse cycle and let it go through the cycle. It should drain the water, then stop the motor for a split second then kick the motor back in and start spinning. If it doesn't drop out that split second then the timer is holding it in neutral drain. You can recreate this by letting it start draining, then let off the lid switch, then depressing it again. The basket should start spinning. If not,
Raise the lid and hold the lid switch closed. Start it in spin and see if you can get it started spinning by hand. If so you probably have a slipping clutch.
Post back with any questions.
You can go to sears.com, click on parts, and enter your model number and see parts diagrams of the washer. This can be helpful.
try opening the filter which located mostly in the lower area of the front side. An acumilation of dirt and calc will inhibit the complete drain of water. After opening and cleaning the filter, put it back in. Once it will drain completly, it will start spinning.
Hope I assist you with the problem.
