John, there is debris of some sort inside your drain pump restricting or impeding the flow of water. Since it still has water in the tub, the computer won't allow the unit to activate high speed spin. The blockage will have to removed before the unit can be operated again. You'll have to pull the back cover off the machine to access the pump. When you remove the hoses, there will be a flood of water... If at all possible, move the washer outside to do this. If you can't move it, figure out a way to clamp off (pinch) the intake hose tightly. I've used 2 small open end wrenches and a pair of vice-grips before. Take the 2 wrenches and pinch the hose, then secure them tightly in place with the vice-grips. This'll get it going again. BTW, your washer has no belts... all electronic drive.

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

SOURCE: GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

I had the same problem and solved it without all the expensive recommended parts. I unplugged the cord from the outlet and listened for a "click" (motor reset) and then plugged it back in. I then raised and lowered the lid several times to break the magnet contact. turned it on and then it worked fine.

My GE spacemaker washer is blinking and will not work


I have a he gtup270emww washer used very little. The washer was overloaded and quit working full of heavy wet clothes and water. The washer agitator does not operate. The water does not drain.

The light blinks. I have un plugged the washer to reset the motor and lifted and closed the lid 7 times. I drained the water by hand.

When I try to operate the washer, it adds water for 30 seconds, the water shots off and the green light blinks.

What is the fix?

Will not spin or agitate


Remove the front panel. Observe the motor flashes.
The motor blinks on and off all the time.
It blinks faster when running.
If a failure occurs you will get the following flashes:

1 flash bad motor
2 flashes slipping belt
3 flashes corrupted software bad motor
4 flashes failed mode shift circuit
5 flashes bad motor
6 flashes locked motor check for objects between tub
7 flashes bad lid switch.
8 flashes motor overheated too much soap
9 flashes brake resister is toast bad motor.

To Reset the Inverter Board: Push the timer knob in so the washer is idle. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. If not, check for a green blinking light on the inverter board. It will flash failure codes. If no light is visible you have a blown fuse built into the neutral side of the harness on the white/red wire.

themobilian_2813.jpgthemobilian_31.pngIf you see a small bubble in this black heat seal and the motor light is not on then the fuse within is blown replacement part is WH49X10041
What else do I have? Oh yeah how about the SERVICE MANUAL

WPGT9360EPL is giving me the error message saying "a problem has been detected with this unit" then the machine turns off completely.........i wonder what board is it? is it the main board? or the control...


Probably neither. There are several things that could cause this error. Motor, water valve pressure switch and so on I have never had to replace a control board on this machine.

GE washer fills, empties, won't agitate or spin. model whdrr418giww only about 18 months old


you will have to remove the front panel of the washer. then look on top of the motor. on top of the motor is a control board. whille the machine is turned on, you should see a flashing light located in the middle of the control board to the right. you will have to count how many time that light blinks.

once you have a count, gain access into the control console(where the timer is) by removing a few screws. in there you will find a tech sheet that will tell you what the blink count means. i bet you its the motor thats bad. its about $160.00

good luck

GE WASHER WJRR4170G0WW-SPIN Cycle does not work- just make sound.


My washer is 2 years old and this is 1/2 the cost I paid for it new. My review of this product after 35 years of technical experience; GE products (Hotpoint)aren't worth buying any longer.

The problem is the Motor. There is an electronic PC Board attached to the top of the motor and under the drip protector, which protects the PC Board. On this board, there is a green flashing light which displays trouble codes by flashing. Unplug the washer, remove the 3 screws from behind the control panel. Slowly pull the control panel toward you and slide it to the right to release. Inside the washer, there is a diagram with the trouble codes printed in the lower right hand corner. Everything else is self explained. Flashes indicate the problem and the solution is all written. Since I have the same problem and a technician, this is a defective product GE has discontinued and re-manufactured. After phoning GE the motor # Normal 0 WH20X10051 cost $252.25 to ship to my location.
