Ge wsm2420 will not drain after washing

The washer was working fine as of yesterday. I have unplugged it and removed the front panel. The hose was not kinked. The spin cycle works without issue. I don't hear the motor turn on after the wash cycle. Could it be clogged? Do I need to replace the motor?

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.

SOURCE: GE WJSE3110A washer, won't drain

On a scale of 1 -10, I'd rate this about a 3.5 in difficulty.
Un plug machine.
Use a putty knife to push the clips in at the seam of the front panel and the washer's top, about two inches in from each side to allow you to pull the front panel forward and then lift it off the bottom pegs.
If you took off that drain hose, you shouldn't have any water left in the machine, so take the two squeeze hose clamps off the pump hoses, the electrical wires off the pump, and the two 3/8 size bolts holding the pump to the washer's base.
Now check to see if the pump is plugged or obstructed with an object. Replace pump with cleaned out or new pump as necessary.

SOURCE: washer wil not spin or drain out after cycle completed

sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

What does LE mean on display panel of my Samsung vrt front load washer?


Le means there's a problem with filling. Check to be sure inlet hoses aren't kinked, and no blockage at the inlet, as well as water turned on.

What are some reasons why my GE stacked washer stops after spin cycle?


Katary, first it sounds like it is a bad drain pump. to access drain pump you need to remove the front panel, to remove the front panel there are 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel near each corner. Once removed the bottom pulls out and the panel will lift up 90 degrees before being able to be removed from the top "hinge" point. Once removed you will see 2 large rubber hoses, 1 short and 1 long, in between the two is your electric drain pump. It should be on and "humming" during the spin cycle. appliancepartspros.com have that pump for $106.00

My whirlpool washer will not drain the water.It seems to work fine at all other stages of the wash cycle.When it gets to the stage when it is supposed to drain it does not drain and you hear a buzzing type...


Hi,

There are several reasons why a washing machine won't drain or spin. The cause could be something as easy as a clog or something difficult that will need a licensed repairman. Start with the simplest possible cause and work down to the more difficult causes.


Find some possible cause and how to solve the problem:


A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.


If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced. Follow manufacturer's directions for replacing the switch. If the lid does not close all the way, visually check for signs that the lid is bent. If bent, try to bend it back into place.


Loose or broken belts could also prevent a washing machine from draining or spinning. Pull the washer away from the wall and, using the screwdrivers and wrenches, remove the back panel. Using the flashlight, visually check for any broken or loose belts. Replace any broken or loose belts. Although replacing washing machine belts is difficult, anyone who has replaced belts on a car, lawn mower or even a bicycle chain should be able to accomplish the task.


Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power. If the washer is getting power, turn on the washer and listen to find out if the pump is running but the water is still not draining. It may be necessary to remove the pump and clean it or to replace the pump with a new one. Once the pump is replaced, turn on the washer to determine if it will now drain and spin.


If all of the above steps fail to produce a washing machine that drains or spins, then it is time to call a professional repairman. Use the screwdrivers and wrenches to replace the panel on the washer and push it back against the wall.


Good luck.

I want to open my GE 8 cycle 2 speed Heavy Duty Large Capacity top loading washer so I can see why it does not spin or drain. How do I open it up??


The washer will not advance to the spin cycle if there is a draining problem due to a pump problem or clogs and kinks in the drain hose. Check the drain hose and clear it from any obstruction or kinks. Make sure the drain pump is working. Check the drain pump wiring and make sure the connections are snug fit. Reseat the conenctions several times to clean off dirt and corrosion build up in the terminals and connectors. Replace the drain pump if it is not working at all to pump out the water and allow the washer to advance to the spin cycle. Check the lid switch if the washer fills but does not agitate.

The drain pump can be accessed by removing the front panel. The front panel can be removed by inserting a putty knife blade between the top cover and the front panel in alignment with the groove on either side of the lid and cover.

Push the putty knife to release the clips. Once the clips are released, tilt the front panel forward then lift it off the cabinet base locking tabs ad move away from the washer. Reverse the steps to reassemble.

Please indicate the exact model number of the washer if this advice is not applicable for more accurate troubleshooting and repair advice.

Yesterday made a grinding noise and leaked water out on the floor from under unit.it still works


The noise would be indeed coming from the water pump.

To clean the pump on this top-loader you have to unplug it, pop the top open, and remove the front face of the cabinet to expose the motor and pump.

Slip off the two metal clips hugging the pump to the motor. Place a towel under the motor before detaching the hoses - there's a plastic drip pan between the pump and motor to guide the water away from the motor.

Unclamp the two hoses from the pump by squeezing their spring-clamps with pliers and sliding them further down the hose. Pull the hoses off by lifting the pump off its axle and pulling it out while wiggling the hoses loose. Check if anything jammed in the pump - it must have fallen to the outside of the basket but inside the drum during the last spin cycle, and went down the drain hose. Check the pump for damage and replace if necessary.

For future troubleshooting, remember that a clogged pump causes squealing, diminished spin speed, and slow drainage.

The first thing I would do is to inspect the inner tub. Empty your washer and carefully check all holes inside the inner tub and under the agitator for any foreign objects and remove if any.

If it's nothing there then you have to remove the front panel. Tape the lid to the top panel. Using a putty knife push in to release top panel clips on both sides. Lift up the top panel toward the back.

Remove the screws on top of the front panel on each side. Pull out the top of the front panel toward yourself for about 30 degrees and release it from the bottom clips. Now you have an access to inside the washer. Run the washer without the front panel and try to locate the sound. Let me know your findings.

Washers fine but doesnt drain water and go to rinse cycle


Check the drain hose may be kinked. Washers have been known to eat socks, they go in to the the tub during the spin cycle and down in the pump. If you are so inclined to look dome pumps are clear and you can see the sock. There is a hose clamp to remove and you may be able to remove the sock. Reassemble and test. Remember as always to unplug the washer first before doing any work. This exploded view has a washer and if you hover over the bottom right it will show what the pump looks like.

What does 5d mean?


If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters ofwater and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.


Possible Causes/Procedure
If too much detergent was used:
Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure
switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any Cycle.

Front load washer doesn't spin


My Maytag® Neptune® washer filled with water, but it won't spin or drain-what now?

Start by making sure the machine is plugged into a live (working) electrical outlet. Then check the appropriate circuit breaker and reset it if necessary (or check the fuse if you have a fuse box).

Next, inspect the drain hoses and remove any kinks. Take a look at the drain, too - if it's clogged, call your usual drain service person.

Then close the washer door and firmly press the START/STOP button. In a few moments, after the door locks, the washer should begin to spin. (For your safety, the washer will not tumble or spin unless the door is closed and locked.)

If this doesn't work, please contact Customer Service at 1-800-688-9900 for toll-free assistance and service scheduling if necessary.

Whirlpool front loading washer


The 02 error code relates to a drain problem. Check that the drain hose is not kinked or clogged. Straighten the hose for adequate water flow. Regarding the spinning noises and vibration, open washer's rear panel and look for a released or a malfunction shock absorber. Good luck!

Display panel reads SUDS


The SUDS message relates to overdose of detergent detected during the Wash Cycle. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent or excessive suds. If too much detergent was used, run the washer through a Rinse/Spin cycle, then a Normal cycle, without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked. Good luck!
