Humming and not filling?

My GE Adora front load washer is humming and not filling. I set it to wash and when I come back to put the stuff in the dryer, it's all still bonedry. appears that the soap has been leaking out the front, under the door. i cleaned out the little catch thing that keeps them from draining (i learned about that here and it's true). i unplugged it and when i plug it back it the only thing that lights up is the "door locked" light and then it starts humming like it's trying to work. i'm afraid to let it just do that and run the course until it stops and lets me open the door for fear the motor will burn out. Please help!

Re: Humming and not filling?

Had the same problem this morning, turned out the pump on the drain side had frozen, took it apart, and broke free the fan, humming stopped, washer back up and working.  Its two screws to the bottom of the washer, two electrical connection (white and black) two hoses to undo, and three screws on the pump itself, after actually committing to doing it, only took about 10 minutes.

good luck

My ge front load washer fills then stops during cycle and does nothing else. It spins in the beginning then will not drain at the end

It sounds like the drain pump itself is damaged--the important clue was the humming noise. It could be bound up mechanically or the impeller could be damaged and just vibrating instead of spinning. The part number for the drain pump is WH23X10026. The fact that the pump was humming tells me that the 120v supply is being turned on by the main control board and that the wiring is good all the way to the pump. When I service customers, I try to save the pump if possible in clog cases. Most of the time, they aren't damaged from a simple clog. But, occasionally, the impeller cracks, or the nylon blade gets loose on the shaft, or the motor windings have defects from heat, etc.

Plug in the washer and it starts humming even if the door is open or its off

Some GE front load washers go directly into a pump out mode after any power failure (or if plug is pulled). This is to keep it from possibly over filling during a cycle restart.

On the GE Adora machines, if the unit is not getting the correct power, the unit will not go beyond the fill point to wash. You will need to replace the "power inverter" on the unit. Here is the part you need to order.

GE Adora front load washer overloaded now won't start

Washers - Resetting Electronic Controls on a Washer

If there is a pause in the washer cycle, the controls will lock up. The pause can occur because of a power failure or it was put in the test mode at the factory.

Also, if the washer was stopped before the cycle was complete or the consumer has pushed the stop/pause button to temporarily stop the cycle and the cycle is not reset. Over a period of 24 hours, the washer will pump out and spin, but will stay in the final spin.

To correct the situation, shut off the circuit breaker for 30 seconds or unplug the washer, then turn the timer knob around and back to any position other than final spin. Verify the water is turned on and restore power. This should resolve the issue.
