Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
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?
SOURCE: Kenmore 80 series won't spin
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.

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

look in back of mach for 4 shipping bolts.they are usually housed in a rubber grommet surrounded by a yellow plastic shaft.if they are there remove all 4 of them.also remove bottom access panel by taking out 2 screws(1 on each bottom corner)look for 1 or 2 yellow steel bars connecting base to tub.if they are there remove.if none of these shipping bolts or brackets are there,you have a broken basket.if that's the case,try to get your money back or buy a new mach.it is a $600 repair..good luck
