HELP, GE profile harmony washer wont drain properly

My ge profile harmony washer does not drain properly. We undid the hoses and its all clear however it seems the pump may not be functioning because it will drain into the pots but only if we do it by hand.....unlike the machine/pump doing it. Any thoughts? Is it the pump or can it still be something else?

    I started a load like normal and left the room for a while. When I returned an error msg said that a problem has accured with the unit. I couldn't push any buttons it just beeped. The tub was still full of water and couldn't tell whether the clothes had washed or not. So i'm not sure when the problem accured. I tried to do a quick spin to drain the water and it made some noise for several seconds and then the error msg again. Please tell me it's minor!

    Washer works well for a while then it starts this trouble draining again, give us a problem for a day or two then works. I get the error message, hold the pump test button for a while and occasionally it drains. If not I open and close the lid a few times and it will start to work after a couple trys. I sure would like a real fix for this thing......

    mine constantly tells me the load is out of balance! All the time. It is getting ridiculous.

    Same situation here. I replaced the pump (it was not sounding right), but even after that, it claims it is not draining properly. I've disconnected all three hoses (exterior, pump-to-exterior, and tub-to-pump), and made sure they are all clear, and also took out the pulsator and checked in there. The only thing left is to take the whole tub out in case there's a sock between the tub and the outer tub or something. Any other ideas?

    My thought is that whatever is causing the problem, caused the first pump to end up burning out part-way, but I obviously haven't solved it yet, and I don't want to ruin another pump.

If you remove the tub to pump hose from the pump and try to turn the pump impeller by hand, it should turn freely. If it does not turn freely, then the motor could be seized and you will need to replace the pump.

    Mine failed too. The pump motor has strong permanent magnets that will cause the motor to have resistance every 180 degrees of rotation, but that appears to be normal. I removed my pump and connected it directly to AC power, and discovered that it would only start on its own intermittently... it didn't always have enough force to overcome the resistance of the magnets. If I carefully started rotation with my finger it would run OK. So, it's time for a new pump.

    Just wondering.....did the new pump solve your problem? We have the same issue, and are debating......new pump(cheaper option), or new washer. It seems this is a GE quality problem that is affecting a lot of people.

Your pump might have something in it. I got a shoestring out of one the other day. Remove the front panel and inspect the pump.c8963d3.jpgbottom right of the photo is that clogged pump, The top does not pop up. The front panel comes off.

It sounds like your drain hose is kinked or blocked, or maybe the pipe that the drain hose drains into is blocked. Somehow water is now being allowed to get out of the machine at the end of the cycle and is staying in the machine. Check those hoses and pipes.

Ge Profile Harmony Washer doesn't drain properly.


It sound like you have a blocked pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check where do you have this clogged, inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. Good luck!
