Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
I bought my GE Front loader washer/dryer set used off of craigslist.com. I just used the washer for the first time the other day and it goes thru the wash cycle but doesn't automatically go thru the spin cycle. So I manually put it in the drain and spin cycle and even then, not all of the water was spun from the clothing. I have now used it 3x's and same thing is happening each time. Am I supposed to have to manually put it on the spin cycle? If so, that really bites. But even more so, what could be the reason that it's not spinning fast enough or long enough to get the majority of the water out?
My GE Front Loader is 18M old and it has been progressively getting worse, not spinning the water out......I should have known the Pump had a cleanable strainer as Solution #1 says. Pulled a fist size chunk of wet lint, coins, a necklace and wrappers from the Strainer, not to mention about 2 Gal of dingy, soapy water. Tried a Drain/Spin and after a couple of minutes, went to High Speed Spin for the 1st time in about 3 months. Obviously there is a Water Sensor on the Drain Line somewhere that if the Drain Line still has water in it, it does not allow washer to go into Med/High Spin Mode.

The 'best solution' (i.e. strainer at the pump) was the ticket. I found $5.93 with an assortment of screws, nails, nuts and washers. The fix took about 20 minutes due to the cleanup. I gotta get in the habit of not putting these items in my pocket. A penny also made it through the system and was blocking the discharge at the sink. The machine is working like new.

I have the same problem with mine, but only on the high spin. If you try a lower setting it may work. Medium works for me.
We got ours off craigslist as well, but my hubby's friend dropped his end in transport and we can only use the speed wash setting and cant change it...But that's a seperate problem I suppose.

I have had the same problem. It is pretty simple to fix, just unscrew the 3 screws under the bottom front panel and remove it. You will see a lid that unscrews, this is the filter. Just unscrew it and clean it out. Make sure you have a pan and plenty of towels to catch the water that will spill out.
