Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
Water outlet appears to be cloged , cant find a place to clean
If you have the WSXH208A that you posted under, you will have to take the lower front panel off (one 1/4 inch hex screw on each side, right by the floor) then take the hoses off the pump and the two 5/16 hex screws that hold the pump down. Be ready to soak up the water that is still in the hoses and pump when you remove the hoses. Clean the coins and other obstructions from the pump inlet hose and make sure nothing is inside the pump. Reassemble pump and hoses and test. Should be a Fix-Ya for your machine!

It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in
most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a
washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most
important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If
you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and
fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you
look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at
the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing
resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged.
Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the
drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power
to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened
properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be
replaced. If there is intermittent power
to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.
Cleaning a pump:
Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a
spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there
is no residual water remaining.
