Will not spin. clothes soaking wet,spin cycle shuts off at 7 mins

I have a front load washer model number 5500bww. the machine works fine until it goes into the spin cycle. it will attempt to run the cycle and spin back and forth a few times. the spin cycle will countdown to 7 mins and then sit for about 20 secs then shuts off. i have checked all hoses and pump for obstrucitons. still the same problem. i checked the control board to see if there was anything burnt out on it and it looked normal. any suggestions?

Is your door lock light lighting up? if not you have a bad board and wax motor in the door lock. if you look at the board and locate r11 and see it burned this is 100 percent your problem. now do you have delay wash cycle? if so set it into delay and then locate your motor control board which is in the bottom you need to oipen the door and remove all four screws. be carefull the door may fall off don't remove the door but do remove the outer piece to locate the motor controller. Locate the jp4 connecter and remove it. make sure the unit is unplugged when openning up and removeing these. Now plug unit in if the unit starts tumbling, you may have to hit start, but if the unit continuously tumbles then you know that your motor and your motor controller are ok. If they do not then you have a bad motor/motor controller. Now if it tumbles freely you have 3 out of balance sensers one of them is bad they have 2 blue wires going to them check the connections and make sure non of them are broken and let me know how it goes

Does the washer spin after the wash cycle? It sounds like the door switch. This is a common problem with frigidaires. 90% of the time a door switch fixes it.

Are you sure washer is level? I solved our problem that simple and I had worked on solving it for weeks until I double checked the level and found it a little off. Now it works wonderfully.

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....


The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine
