You didn't say which model it is, but by now I assume you know about the small trap at the bottom of the newer ones? On 2007 and back, you have to remove 3 or 4 screws on the bottom panel. You'll see the rubber stopper screwed in.

Have a pan under it capable of holding at least a quart of water. There will be all kinds of stuff in there.

If that isn't it, you may have a bad control panel.

My GE washer model WDSR2080D2WW, will fill and wash only. When it should drain and go into the spin cycle, all it does is makes a buzzing noise from the timer. This is no matter the cycle setting. What is...


Hi- Sounds like your drain pump is bad, or clogged. Not easy to get to. It could also be a timer issue or an issue with your pressure switch which tells the washer when the water is out and it can go into spin mode. Sounds like you need to have someone out to take a look.

My MayTag Atlantis washer will not spin or drain the water out, when it gets to the rinse cycle or spin cycle , it just makes a buzzing or clicking noise.


The brake mechanism is not releasing properly. The noise your hearing is the motor trying to move but can't. Do not continue to operate the washer or you will burn out the motor...an expensive replacement. See instructions for my other solutions.

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.

Ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.


Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.
