In the pump of these units, have a rubber flap that allows water to go out, but not come back in. Sort of like the rubber flap in your toilet. Often, these things get (through use or age) degraded and either come off or get twisted, especially when you have hard water. Its a very small round rubber part that can easily be replaced, but you must take the face off of the washer to gain access to the pump (situated on the bottom of the washer usually in front) and remove the drain hose. its a red flap. If this is not your problem (usually if this is the problem, your clothes would be all soak and wet as water is not being pumped out) then you may just want to take the face off the washer, and feel the belt around the motor pully. if this is loose, that could be why the clothes are not spinning with as much force as a tighter belt. Or your motor could be going..if it is an older unit that is not unheard of.

Ge wslp1100a0ww washer leaves clothes soaking wet, not spinning properly


You don't say whether agitation is normal. Improper spin can be slipping V belt (stretched or cracked), part #WH01X10081, or loss of transmission fluid. Is there oil on the ground under the washer (shouldn't be)? Let's start here. Motor, belt, and transmission are at the bottom of the washer.

My spacemaker will not drain or function in spin cycle


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the unit is unable to drain it will not even work in spin cycle, the problem is with blocked drain/drain pump filter which should be cleaned. If after cleaning the problem comes back then the drain pump needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Washer won't spin and empty the water out of the


Shirley, it may be the drain pump is obstructed or possibly the lid switch is broken. If you washed bath mats or rubber backed rugs recently i would go for the pump. If you washed a semi bulky item with a tendency to float I would go for the switch.
Get me a model number and I can help you with dis-assembly if you'd like further help!

Check the following.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Washer wont agitate.


Hose must fit tight on switch and tub connection-make sure it has no defects in it. If machine fully drained then did not get to correct water level when restarted then water level switch is bad. Please contact me if you need further help or leave feedback if appropriate as that is how I get paid. Thanks for letting me help you!

Washer won't drain or spin


Probably a bad drain valve. As long as the tub is still full of water, the controls will not allow it spin, refill, etc. Have a service technician check the drain valve.

Spin Cycle


you can check the direct drive coupling between the motor and the transmission, if the coupling is good and not broken then you have a transmission problem
