Hi, It is easiest if you have a wet/dry vac and **** the water out of the tub. You can also try and **** the water out of the drain hose and hope the plug is small enough that it breaks lose. The most common place the hose gets plugged is where it narrows after the pump going out the back of the washer.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Not draining an erro comes up E20 on it


E20 = draining issue. The most common problem is a blockage at the drain pump.

This can be checked by a DIYer with general hand-tools.
1st. Unplug the washer! We don't want to get shocked.
2nd. There is a lower panel on this unit which can be removed by removing two screws at the bottom. Remove this panel to gain access to the drain pump area.
3rd. Find a big diameter black hose coming from the bottom of the wash tub and follow it until it gets to a plastic housing with an electric motor sticking out the side. (there will be a smaller diameter hose coming out of this plastic housing as well this is your drain hose)
4th. Remove hose clamp on large black hose and remove hose from pump (water will flow! be ready)
5th. Check hose and pump for blockages... One of the most common is under-wires from the wife's bras. Spin impeller of pump to insure that it moves freely.
6th. Put it back together in reverse order of taking it apart. Try unit out by starting a cycle without clothes. Then put it in a spin cycle to see if water drains.

Water not draining my ge washer will ot drain the water. it is spinning but not draining. i took out all the clothes and set it to spin and drain but it wont drain the water. what to do? can i do it...


It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

My washing machine will not spin and drain the water out


if it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Ge top load washer will not agitate


Hi,

If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns

It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.


It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.


It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.

If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

Good Luck!!
