Don't know if this will help or not, but your owners manual is available at http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher

Usually the drain hose elbow is inserted in a stand pipe, meaning the washer would drain water on the floor is the stand pipe is clogged.
Several items can cause the lack of draining.
If you can get to the drain hose, try lowering to a point that it will drain into a bucket. If it drains the system is not clogged. If you advance the timer and the washer drains this maybe the culprit. The motor can overheat and shut off. I would advance the timer to spin and listen for a hum in the motor and then quiet, a sign that the motor has overheated. If the water drains it sounds like the timer is at fault.
I would first make sure the drain hose is properly installed and not kinked somewhere. In earlier GE's the water drain pump could clog, your manual doesn't indicate that as a defect. Regardless timer, motor and pump are in the cycle to empty the washer water.

SOURCE: ge wssh300 front load washer starts final spin

Hi,

The spin problem could be a number of different things,one, the motor is bad, two your belt is bad, three the clutch is slipping, but as far as the suds goes how much detergent are you using and what kind? is the cold water coming in full force on rinse? if you have allot of suds this can make the machine not spin fast also.

The clutch is the most likely cause,these are not cheap, in fact it comes as the motor and clutch together on this.

If you are looking for a good reliable machine buy a top load direct drive whirlpool, no frills or bells and whistles and these run great for a long time and when they need repair these are inexpensive to fix. thats what i recomend.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

GE WSSH300 stops after wash and need to hit start again to finish


Be sure to rule out one of the simplest things first---be sure the button that gets depressed when you close the lid is still functioning (or even THERE) Sometimes, if you have had a severly offset load, this switch can become damaged. Some washers will not continue to advance if it " thinks" the door is opened.

My GE Washer Door Won't Lock


Try this, press the pause/cancel button twice. Open the door, ensure there is nothing blocking the door and close the door fully. Open the detergent drawer fully and re-close the drawer. Select Quick wash and press start.

If this does not correct the problem, call for service under warranty.

Had same problem with GE wssh300 front load washer. Removed two screws from front bottom panel (under washer front). Pulled off panel, loosened screw from a seal ring on the rubber flex hose going to a 4" square plastic housing. Reached down inside and found a ton of lint (probaby a 2" balls worth) jamming outlet. Removed lint an works geat. Very easy to do by tilting front of washer up and putting supports under front to keep elevated. Be careful to make sure supports are sturdy washer can't dop when servicing.
