Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

Washer does not wash or spin

The washer is a year old. last two nights my clothes came out with an odor and couldn't figure out why. I decided to was them again at a higher temperature and happen to be around to notice the timer counting down but nothing was happening, other than the washer filling up and releasing the water but not spinning. tried different cycles nothing work. took out the load nothing worked. Put it on rinse and spin and it would only work if i keep pressing the start and pause button. The belt seems to be fine. did a rinse and spin nothing happen, press stop and start and it worked. Did it again nothing. Cant get it to work on any other cycles with any load in. Any suggestions?

My washer is about three years old. Last night as it was spinning out the clothes it started making a very loud "clunking" sound. I rearranged the clothing thinking that it was just unbalanced...


When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

The tub won't drain and it spins very slowly. I've also noticed, over the last couple years, some oil/rust spots on my clothes. It is a top loading washer that is over 20 years old.

Our towels and clothes have a mildew/musty smell. when I spin the stainless drum inside, i can hear water sloshing around.

Towel mildew odor is transferred from the washer to towels and clothes. The washer must be cleaned first. After cleaning the washer and towels washing habits must change to stop mold smell from returning.

Washing machine mold / mildew is caused by:
#1 cause is overuse of detergents. Detergent companies are notorious for instructing to use too much detergent. Especially with soft water or when using liquid detergent no more than 1 tbsp of any detergent should be used.
#2 most common cause is using fabric softener because it's dispensed in the rinse cycle and will coat the inside of the outer tub with residue that is a food source for mold to grow.
#3 using only cold water for washing is fine but makes preventative maintenance very important. A weekly hot soak will dissolve odor-causing residue from inside your washer.
#4 not using the washer. If the clothes washer isn't used very often maintenance is especially important. If leaving for a vacation it's a good idea to clean your washer. Do a search to "remove washer odor" to read just how big the problem is. There are all natural washer cleaners that will also remove mildew odor from towels and clothing after the washer has been cleaned.
