Question about GE Washing Machines

1 Answer

Fills up ok,but wont wash,,has a humming sound.

I have a English electric washer/dryer, model EE100WD..The water fills up, but the drum wont turn, but I can hear a humming sound. I can turn the programme switch to drain the drum and that works. Could it be that the brushes need replacing, as it looks like one of the carbon brushes is broken....thanks Nina

Yes, you need to fit new brushes, if motor still does not go, then it is probably faulty.

Can you see water in the drum ?,No water = no action Check water supply

If there is water in the drum does it drain out at some point.

Sequence = Fill, Agitate, Heat, Wash, Drain, Spin etc.

If it fills then it may be a belt has snapped and the drum cannot turn , need to take the covers off to look.

Remove power before taking covers off !!!!

If the belt is OK then it may be the heater which has gone open circuit, try a cold wash or a rinse cycle to test that.

Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle


When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

GE washer wont spin or wash


It sound like a lid switch issue. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look if the switch is broken or loose. In case it looks OK mechanically, it might be defective electrical and should be replaced. Good luck!

Have suffered the same problem. Suggest you remove back (after turning off electrical supply) and look at the water outlet pipe - you may have a sock or two in this - remember to reattach outlet and secure in position.
