GE Profile washer won't spin cloths after wash or rinse cycle

When the wash cycle is over the machine drains like its supposed to but will not trip into the spin cycle. I can manually put it into the spin cycle but the drum still won't spin. I have checked and cleaned the pressure hose to the fill pressure switch and applied suction and pressure to the switch and can hear it change positions but it has no impact on the spin. I opened the electronic component part of the washer and got the service instructions and cycled through the diagnostics routine and the results of that follow;
Fd LED's all functional
05 Model code
E4 error code indicates slow pump (the pump seems to function normally)
E5 error code indicates no fill (washer fills normally)
(no other error codes displayed)
H hot water fill functions normally
C cold water fill functions normally
AL agitates slowly, functions normally
AH agitates fast, functions normally
P pump functions normally
SP spin functions normally

I am assuming ether an electronic component failed (which doesn't seem real likely as everything works in diag. mode) or the pressure fill switch isn't indicating the drum is empty (which seems more likely to me). I would appreciate any thoughts on this, like what I may try to confirm or dispel these assumptions.

Its $150 for a repairman to just show up in my area and I'm usually fairly handy with these type of things so if I can avoid paying that I will.
Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hey everyone,
    It appears that the pressure sensor on the side of the drum is / was clogged up. I still have a concern that it might be the switch as there was no change in activity when I applied pressure or vacuum to the switch but after I cleaned out the clog in the drum part the washer has gone through a couple of cycles normally.

Can I reprogram a front load GE washer so I can add a drain and spin cycle that this machine does not have?.Sometimes my clothes come out too wet and it would be nice to spin and drain them again without...


just add another drain and spin cycle and start it up again with the completion of the first cycle. Washing some items like sleeping bags takes forever because they are so darned absorbent and hold more water than a tiger's sieve of a bladder. Another drain and spin cycle should solve the problem.

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

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

GE Top Load Washing Machine -- Agitator will not cycle


Agitator's don't spin on wash cycle.

I would suggest washing the clothes without soap until they rinse clear. If you have hard water, the soap will not easily rinse out of clothes, or off of you when you use soap to wash or shower.

Reduce the amount of soap you use in each wash if this is the case. It sounds like your washing machine is working right.
