SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin

this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

SOURCE: GE Top load washing machine stop and stars during spin cycle

I had the same problem. The machine will do the washing cycle. At the start of the spin cycle it would start turning with a lot of clicking sounds and then would stop spinning. The water pump would continue working without problem. The motor tries to start again in about three minutes, however, repeats the same behavior. I have a reasonable mechanical and electrical knowledge. I was sure that the overload protection switch of the motor was tripping. I opened up my machine---a GE super capacity top loading machine. Took off the belt and turned the transmission pulley. It turned easily in both directions (washing and spinning). Hence, the transmission was good. Next, I checked any water accumulation in the spin tub. If the water is not drained properly before the spin cycle, it would overload the motor. There was no water clogged in the spin tub. Finally, I dismantled the electric motor. There was a clutch assembly underneath the motor pulley. I dismantled it and found the clutch very dirty with some grease that had turned sticky. I cleaned the assembly thoroughly with alcohol and assembled back the machine. The machine is running perfect after that. Conclusion: The clutch assembly was mis-functioning. Reason: When the spin cycle starts, the spin tub is very heavy and cannot achieve the full speed quickly. On the other hand, electric motors must get to their running speed fairly quickly or else overheating of motor would happen. A proper functioning clutch allows the motor to run at their optimal speed while transferring enough torque to the spin tub to slowly speed up the tub to its fullest. In my case, the clutch was sticky, thus overloading the motor which would trip as it overheats.

SOURCE: GE washing macine stops during the wash cycle

This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.

Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.

The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.

Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.

My ge model gtwn4250dws washer sounds like a helicopter during spinning?


The most likely cause of this is that the washer transmission has a defective bearing.

What is causing washer to be very loud and bounce when spinning


When you did not overload it, the only reason I can think of is a bad shock-absorber. When this happens all the time you are washing, it must be that.
Sometimes every thing in the machine clumps together and you have the same effect. If this does not happen all the time, don't worry.

GTWN4250DWS DRAINS WATER BUT WILL NOT SPIN


I just experienced this problem with this machine. I had a service tech show me how to reset it, after he checked inside the machine to make sure there was nothing mechanical wrong (you can remove the front panel with just a screwdriver or putty knife and pop it off--no screws). Here is how to reset the machine: unplug it for a minute, plug it in, then open and close the lid, making sure the magnetic switch in the lid makes contact with the machine, 6 times in 12 seconds. Then make sure the machine is leveled properly, then select a cycle and hit start. It should begin working right away.

Washer bounces when spin starts and seems nosie


If it is brand new are the transit bolts removed? try spin with nothing in it and see if it turns smoothly, if not there is something broken inside, id spins smoothly it will be a fault in the dampers.

Excessive vibrating and banging in the spin cycle with some washes. The unit is only 1 month old. Any advice?


You have a improper installation. The machine has to be perfectly level side to side and frotnt to back. After leveling, check the feet on the bottom and see if one is bouncing on spin with a load. Adjust the bouncing foot down until machine stops bouncing.

Need to balance washing machine drum


The drum should not need balancing, but the washer should be level in all directions. If the washer is level, but vibrates excessively during spin cycle, you may need to replace the springs. There is a set of suspension springs which act as shock absorbers. When these wear out the washer will bounce across the floor unless the clothes are 100% balanced in the washer.

The washer bounces during spin cycle


Front loaders don't like small loads. There's not enough clothing to settle around to balance it. Only do large loads.

Wobbels and vey loud during spin cycle


hi there,

looks like you have an unbalanced load of clothes. this usually means that your drum is out of alignment, hence it makes a lot of noise. i would recommend having a technician come out and it's a big job to have it put back together. you may have to replace the coupling or brake as well. have him check if anything is actually broken.

thanks
