Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

3 Answers

Washer stops, cloths inside dripping wet

Had this problem before and called a repairman. I was not home when he came to repair it, but was told that he said an internal filter was clogged. He said that it was a common problem with this model but it is not listed in the troubleshooting guide. He had to take off, what I think was the front panel. He removed a couple of screws and the filter was accessable. I don't see the screws so I need to know where they are and which panel I need to remove to get access to this filter. Hopefully this makes sense and you know what I'm talking about. I hate to pay for him to come back just to clean a filter....I look forward to your response.
Thank You

If you have the model WSXH208A which is in the heading of your post,.... There isn't really a filter. What he did was remove the two screws at the very bottom of the lower front panel to allow that panel to be removed. Then, he removed the water pump to get to whatever was obstructing the water flow. The larger rubber inlet area just before the pump is designed to catch some objects, but occasionally a button, coin, guitar pick, or other object will block the water flow there or inside the pump.

GE WSXH208 - Front Loader - Drain NOT CLOGGED - been told its the CIRCUIT BOARD - Washer still won't spin DRY on heavier loads.

I will get luck on some loads - mostly lighter - but not always. Many in my condo have had this issue;

They found that they had to replace the CIRCUIT BOARD - but I don't have a budget to get a repairman out.

Can anyone tell me what CIRCUIT board they are referring to and how to install it?

Thanks - this girl would really APPRECIATE YOUR HELP!!!!

The screws are on the bottom right and left and the only to access them is to lift the machine up..you also have to have a screw driver that is square..it is a big pain to do..I opened mine and could not find the filter so hopefully you won't have the same problem. Good luck!

My whirlpool washer will start then stop before it reaches next cycle


1 Look at the drain hose to make sure it isn't kinked or clogged. If there is a piece of clothing lodged in there, clear away the hose from the pump and yank the clothing out.
  • 2 Take a look at the switch under the lid of the washing machine. If it doesn't click when you press it, it may be broken and the washer may stop during the drain cycle. Call a repairman to repair or replace the switch.

  • 3 Examine the clothes tub and the outer tub of the washer for anything that may be stuck in there.

  • 4 Open the main access panel of the washer and take out the large rubber hose connecting the pump to the lower part of the outer tub.
  • 5 Check to see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in there. If so, use a pair of needle-nose pliers to grab the clothing and pull it through the port. If it is difficult to reach, you will need to take out the agitator, the top part of the outer cylinder, and the interior tub to grab it. Unless you have special skills and tools, you may want to call a repairman.
  • 6 Inspect the pump for a clog or frozen pulley. To check if the pulley is broken or frozen, take the pump out and attempt to turn it manually with your hands. If it's stiff or appears frozen, install a new pump.

    My washer is relatively new but won't kick into its high speed spin anymore. It washes normally, does its rinse thing, but then stays in the low speed spin. I have done all kinds of washes to determine...


    It sounds like a problem with the agitator. Simply remove softener insert and just below that is a seal easily removed and then a 7/16'' bolt. The clutch mechanism between base and upper agitators is probably loose or broken.

    I hope this helps. Good luck!

    My Amana sofsound dishwasher is not draining


    Hello,



    When you open the washing machine lid and discover it full of water, it means it didn't drain before the spin cycle.


    You may be confronted with a tub full of sopping wet clothes at an inconvenient time, but don't panic and call a repairman.


    Chances are the trouble is with the drain hose or the pump and you can fix it yourself with just a few simple tools.
    Difficulty: Moderately Challenging INSTRUCTION BELOW.

    1. 1 Look at the drain hose to make sure it isn't kinked or clogged. If there is a piece of clothing lodged in there, clear away the hose from the pump and yank the clothing out.
    2. 2 Take a look at the switch under the lid of the washing machine. If it doesn't click when you press it, it may be broken and the washer may stop during the drain cycle. Call a repairman to repair or replace the switch.

    I had this problem and did not have the time to fix it myself so I called Sears. The "tech" looked at his laptop, called his "supervisor" a couple of times and told my wife that both control boards needed replaced at a cost of over $500. The manuals, with testing procedures for the inclined, are on the inside, front cover.
    The CE error is a communications failure and on mine it required replacement of the AVS board. I bought the part at a local supply house and replaced it myself for about $175.
