Ge front load - wsxh208a1ww won't spin

Cleaned out hoses on pump, water pumps out, but never spins. Used meter to check speed control, everything checks out. Removed drive belt, motor doesn't rotate. How do you check if the door lock or tier switch is bad?

    sorry, "tier switch is bad" should read "timer switch is bad".

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.

SOURCE: Fixing a clogged pump on GE Profile washer

waht u need to do is get a bucket now take the outlet hose and place it into it low to the ground if water comes out then it will be that your pump is faulty and needs replacing but if it doesnt the only way to do it is towels on the floor and with a low pan place this under the sump hose which should be in the middle of your drum which then leads to the pump pull slowly but not enough for the water to push the hose of do this until empty the only other way is to take it outside and pull the outlet hose of this is the quicker and dryiest out of them all but do do the first part to c if the pump is faulty m8

I have a GE Front Loader. Model# GHDVH670H1GG. The tumbler works until water is required to be drained. At that time, the tumbler is trying to tumble for rinse, but, the water is not being drained and not...


On my machine the pump filter was clogged preventing the water from draining out of the machine properly. This would leave the clothes soaked in water as the machine tried to spin, the extra weight caused the drum to rub against the door seal while spinning, causing the burnt rubber smoke! I removed the 3 screws on the lower fron panel of the machine and opened the drain ( make sure you have a pan or bucket to catch the water! ) cleaned the fliter and put everything back. Works like new again. Good luck.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the water pump. Either the water pump bearing is bad or there are some tiny pieces of debris stuck in the water pump. It is located below the door latch assembly. Remove the front panel and check the drain pump which is attached with hoses. Remove its clamps and clean the drain pump. You can also remove the drain pump by unbolting it from the washer base. If still the issue persists, then check the motor speed control board which is located inside the bottom of the washer. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or
post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My AEG Lavamat W 1000 runs properly but won't spin


a little late to solve your problem...if it ever happens again, change the 16 micro farrad capacitor in the upper rear right corner of the machine. This capacitor controls the starting torque in any motor mode

Speed wash will not spin drum to wash clothes


I had the same problem. The pump is not pumping out the water, thus stopping the spin. Take off your pump (located under the washer in the front right) and look inside to see if there is any junk stopping the plastic spinner to spin. Clean out really good along with the attached hoses. Replace (tricky!) and try the washer!

Front load GE Adora washer isn't spinning when it should. Other sites I see they talk about replacing the door lock assembly...what else could it be?


I had the same problem with my front load (different model). The pump was not pumping out the water, thus stopping or slowing the spin. Take off your pump (located under the washer in the front right on my model) and look inside to see if there is any junk stopping the plastic spinner to spin. Clean out really good along with the attached hoses. Replace (tricky!) and try the washer! I had lots of junk in the pump along with a few hairpins that stopped the sinner in the pump. This is a tricky process on my model.

Our kenmmore front loader is having a problem with the pump. When it empties there is dirt with the water. Is there any way I can get at the pump and clean it? It is working 70% and as long as I have the drain hose on the ground the water will drain. When I shake the hose dirt comes out and sometimes it says F21. Can anyone help.

GE Top load washing machine stop and stars during spin cycle


I had the same problem. The machine will do the washing cycle. At the start of the spin cycle it would start turning with a lot of clicking sounds and then would stop spinning. The water pump would continue working without problem. The motor tries to start again in about three minutes, however, repeats the same behavior. I have a reasonable mechanical and electrical knowledge. I was sure that the overload protection switch of the motor was tripping. I opened up my machine---a GE super capacity top loading machine. Took off the belt and turned the transmission pulley. It turned easily in both directions (washing and spinning). Hence, the transmission was good. Next, I checked any water accumulation in the spin tub. If the water is not drained properly before the spin cycle, it would overload the motor. There was no water clogged in the spin tub. Finally, I dismantled the electric motor. There was a clutch assembly underneath the motor pulley. I dismantled it and found the clutch very dirty with some grease that had turned sticky. I cleaned the assembly thoroughly with alcohol and assembled back the machine. The machine is running perfect after that. Conclusion: The clutch assembly was mis-functioning. Reason: When the spin cycle starts, the spin tub is very heavy and cannot achieve the full speed quickly. On the other hand, electric motors must get to their running speed fairly quickly or else overheating of motor would happen. A proper functioning clutch allows the motor to run at their optimal speed while transferring enough torque to the spin tub to slowly speed up the tub to its fullest. In my case, the clutch was sticky, thus overloading the motor which would trip as it overheats.

Drain pump starts and stops prior to final spin cycle


Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, Catriver..post back.
