Ge wbse2090a2 won't drain

I took front cover off and you can hear the humming coming from the pump that the drain hoses are hooked up to. Just want to make sure this is probably the problem and not possibly something else. thanks

Check the drain spigot that the drain hose attaches to under the sink/tub. There may be a blockage in the spigot.

My GE washer model- WJRE5550K2WW won't drain . it fills up and goes through wash cycle then when it suppose to drain you just hear a humming but it does nothing until it finally shuts its self off


It could be pump (if that humming comes from the machine, I assume pump works). So I would say it's clogged. You need to flip machine over and open it from the bottom (if you can), then there is hose that comes from the drum, take it apart and see that it's clean, if there is white ball in it, take it out, that ball is causing more trouble than it fixes. Clean the hose where it comes together with the drum and put everything back together.

Water wont drain


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Drain Pump Filter
This is the most common problem. Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean filter.

Drain Pump
The drain pump may have failed. If you hear it making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump if nothing is found inside. If no noise is heard check the pump for power. To do this remove the wire connectors and connect a voltmeter turn to a drain cycle, refer to tech sheet or service manual for proper voltage reading, usually any voltage would probally indicate a faulty pump. If no voltage to the pump replace the main control board.

Hoses
Check the hoses from the pump by disconnecting them and make sure there are no obstructions. Check your hoes drain, if it is a slow drain this can cause your washer to not properly drain.

My GE WBSR3140D0WW top load washer fills, agitates but won't drain or spin


2 Possibilities. You have a failed drain pump, or the most likely, you have a clogged or obstructed pump or pump hose. it will n ot spin unitl the water level has reached a certain point. I have found socks in these. You will need to remove the front cover, slip a putty knife between the front cover and the top deck on the left and right side, push and at the same time pull the cover back. the drain pump is on the right side of the washer. If the pump sounds like its humming but not turning, there is something on the pump. If it sounds like its running, but no water being pumped out, then there is most likely an article of clothing stuck in the hose.

Our GE Profile Deluxe washer is not draining


Your post says "drain hose is kinked". I assume you meant NOT kinked. You didn't leave a model # so it's difficult to advise. If it's a top loader set it to spin and listen for the drain pump sound. If you hear just a dull hum it's probably stuck with something in it.
Use a shop vac to get the water out. Pull the front off and remove the hoses from the pump. Look into the inlet and you'll see the object.

Humming and not filling?


had the same problem this morning, turned out the pump on the drain side had frozen, took it apart, and broke free the fan, humming stopped, washer back up and working.  Its two screws to the bottom of the washer, two electrical connection (white and black) two hoses to undo, and three screws on the pump itself, after actually committing to doing it, only took about 10 minutes.

good luck

Won't drain


The humming could be coming from the drain pump which may be jammed. The machine will not spin unless all the water has been drained out. If there is still water in the drum, remove the drain hose from where it attatches under the sink or tub and lie it down. Let water drain into a bucket untill the machine is empty. Switch off the machine and unplug it from the wall. Remove the hose that connects the tub to the drain pump from the drain pump and see if there is any obvious obstruction. If you can see the pump impellar, try turning it with your finger. If impellar does not turn freely, replace drain pump.
