My GE WHDRR418 clothes washer won't spin.

My GE WHDRR418 top loading clothes washer won't spin. I've looked in the bottom and the belt seems in proper position. It gets to the spin cycle and begins to drain, but never spins.

THANK YOU. for those of you with a screw driver, here are the photos on how to.

It takes a philips screw driver and 20 minutes. The white screws may not align perfectly but don't worry, just get them to go back in the hole(no harm done).

I'm going to admit it was my wife that found this fix, so now I give the step by step photos.

SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin

this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

SOURCE: GE top loading washer does not spin out water

The belt could be broken, if not. Unplug washer for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times, this should reset electronic motor.

I have a GE Adoration WHDRE526E1WW top load washer. It drains and hits spin but will not spin. Lid switch seems to work. When tested the motor kicks on but will not turn the tub. Few times I manually spun...


It really sounds like the belt. You say it's in good shape but if it's loose or shiny from not having proper tension it wont have enough friction between the belt and pulley to actually work. If you've ever tried to move the drum when its full of clothes and water you know how much force id needed to function. Double check that belt tension and working surface.

My washer spins out very slowly and the water drains but the clothes are very wet.


f the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag), a worn clutch (GE/Hotpoint), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing.

GE washer will NOT spin, but does all other functions.


You need to have the fan belt checked. It must have been loose or broken.

How to lift the lid on our top loading GE washer


It does just lift up but it is held in place with clips that are forced into openings so you have to use some force to separate the two.

slide a putty knife in the crack and work it around. as you do so it will start to open for you.

If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

you both need to have the switch replaced or you can open top of washer and combine the lid switches wires together as a bypass and electrical tape

Washer won't spin


You may not have received any response because you have used Kenmore 22622 category instead of posting with GE and the GE model #.
Regardless - you might remove the back panel of the machine and with adequate light peer inside and look for a belt. If your machine is belt driven, it may need a replacement if it has stretched beyond the limits imposed by any tensioner.
