Ge front load washer wcxh208a1ww does not agitate or spin

It drains and the pump and drains are clean. The belt is still in good shape and motor/drum will spin freely by hand. The shocks look fine. There is clicking as the timer advances but the motor does not move at all. Have not performed diagnostic test since I dont have a tester. I did find the tech sheet though but will admit to feeling a little over my head when i read it. Are there any other ways to narrow down the potential problems?

SOURCE: Shocks broke, now drums spins freely

What you need to check thoroughly are the belt & the 2 shocks (dampers). The dampers should be replaced & fitted tightly, broader ends fitted below.

SOURCE: my front loader fills with water, pumps and drains

Remove the back panel of the machine and operate it to check that the drive belts are being engaged to drive the drum. Observe the operation from a safe distance when you have the back off as there are live terminals within reach and you could be severely shocked if you come into contact with any one of them. Unplug the machine again before checking anything withing the workings.

Model WJSE4150B2WW ser# AF171808G GE washer agitates but won't spin with front cover off motor turns belt in the right direction for just an instant and then stops interior basket can be turned...


When spinning the motor freezes up and will not spin. I released the motor and took off the belt off and the motor ran fine. However the pulley that the belt is also on will not spin the proper direction, only backwards.

Washer does not spin but water goes out. Agitation does occur during wash cycle. Belt is in place and does move when pulled. When turning the agitator the tub moves. What would need replaced?

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
