Question about Washing Machines
Hi There, I just got a GE spacemaker Portable (apartment) washer. ALL digital functions work, washes fine, BUT it does NOT spin OR DRAIN!...NOW I am a lurker here & you group of experts helped us fix our last "old school" portable washer, the lid switch was broken. Hubby replaced (or bypassed, not sure) it & we were washing like never before thanks to you all here!! Now, we do NOT suspect this is the same & I will tell you why... The lid on this unit MUST close in order to not receive messages etc, and for the washer to even work the lid MUST be closed. SO.... Unless we are wrong, we are assuming it is something else since all of the lid sensor's functions work just fine! It does absolutely NOTHING, no water drains, no nada, so hubby, who is VERY mechanically inclined has asked me to request your knowledge!! An input would be appreciated!! Our best in 2013!!

First thin I would try is to check your thermal fuse for continuity.
Its located on the tunnel that incases the heasting element.
Try putting the machine into diagnostic mode. If it won't enter diagnostic mode, then you need to replace the main control board.
You also want to check the drain hose, the end of the hose is tapperd and tends to collect lint. Run a coat hanger up the hose and see if you can fish something out also check that belt.

Welcome to FixYa
When the unit
is unable to drain it will not even work in spin cycle, the problem is with
blocked drain/drain pump filter which should be cleaned. If after cleaning the
problem comes back then the drain pump needs replacement. Please get back to me
if you have any other questions.
