Model Wm2496HSM will not spin and drain


Jodie, the OE fault is a drain problem. First thing to look at is the pump coin trap on the bottom of the washer behind the little door. If the washer has water in it, pull out the little hose, remove the stopped at the end and drain into a shallow bucket. When the water stops, removed the trap by twisting the trap handle counter clock wise. If it is full of "stuff" clean it and reinstall it. If it is clean, then you either have a bad pump or something stopping the pump.

Maytag Neptune MAH8700A tha detergent drawer is filling up with water and running out of the drawer onto the floor not going into the tub.


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Drain Pump If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out.

Won't drain


Check your drain hoses and drain pump. You'll also need to tilt the unit backwards and access the drain pump and clear out the coin trap.

My front load GE washer is filling with water and draining but doesnt spin, exept for the first two spins when started


it isnt the door lock or it would not work on the first 2 spin cycles and unless you have huge out of balance loads the door(not lid as lids are only on top loaders) interlock probably isn't at fault. i would cleanout the tub to pump trap inspect the pump for blockage and flush the discharge hose. it doesn't cost a penny to do this and has fixed many front loaders with the same problem

My GE front load washer won't dispense water. Model # is WCVH6260FWW. I've checked the water hoses and the trap in front of my washer. When i turn it on it just turns and hums and locks the door like its...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Where is the pump filter on a front loading ge washing machine Model # WCVH6260FWW


The filter (or clean out trap) is located on the drain pump. To access, just follow these steps:

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.

2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.

3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).

4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.

5. Here’s a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don’t own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.

6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there’s nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.

7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.

8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe.

For reference, you can view some excellent exploded view diagrams of your washer at appliancepartspros.com. If you have any questions about this procedure, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

It wont drain and we already removed front panel to see if something was clogged and there was debris in the drain but after removing it it still wont drain


If you cleaned the drain pump itself (on the bottom behind the lower front panel), and it did not help - the pump needs replacement.
By cleaning the pump itself I mean that cleaning the rubber hose from tub to pump and coin trap is usually not enough, you need to remove 3-5 screws, holding the pump together, and make sure the impeller is not blocked.
I am assuming here that there is power to the pump, and there is at least humming noise or light vibration when you touch it during the drain cycle.

Here is your pump. Coupon "New10" takes 10% off.

Frigidaire Front loading washer error codes E41 and E20


Hi
E20 is a drainage error. If there is water in the drum make sure the discharge pipe at the back of the machine is not kinked or blocked. You should also check the pump filter is not clogged - this is behind the front panel underneath the drum at the front of the machine.

E41 = Control board thinks the door switch is open. This points towards a faulty door switch on the machine.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Many thanks.

Will not drain or spin


There is another posted problem similar to this one if you look at GE front-loading washers.  I can tell you right now, though, that we just cleaned the filter (had the same problem as you) and everything is working perfectly now.  The bottom panel (on the front) of your washer comes off by removing 3 screws.  Our filter was full of lint, change, barrettes, etc.  I would highly recommend looking for that other post (has more information) or trying to clean the filter.  Hope this helps!
