Disconnect power first In approx. 1995 GE stopped making the metal drum washer and came out with a new plastic drum washer and plastic outer tank. To access the washer there are a couple clips between the top of the washer and the front panel that holds the panel on. There is one on each side at about where the pictures show. The clips are mounted on the cabinet and push down into slots on the front panel. Press in on these clips with a putty knife ( you will be pushing inward on the clip) and pull the top of the panel away from the cabinet when the clips are released. The bottom of the panel sits on a couple clips on the bottom of the washer. Pull out on the panel and lift off the clips at the bottom. You now have access to the operating components of this washer. To remove the top panel, remove the bleach from the top panel and remove the two 1/4" drive screws from the top front of the washer and lift up and forward on the top panel. You will have to unclip the wire harness ( male-female wire connector ) for the lid switch.
------------
remove power and check the pump to see if you can turn the pump by hand. If it is stiff or will not turn at all, the pump will have to be taken apart or the hoses taken off to see what is jamming the pump. The pump is bolted to the base on the bottom right of the washer. It is a separate electric motor and pump assembly.
Ever have trouble with a sock in the pump??..or small articles of clothing getting lost somewhere after the laundry is done??
I have a great solution for you!! :-)
Things caught in the pump...often "light" articles of clothing will "float" on top of the wash water and during the spin/pump cycle they can jump from the inner basket into the outer holding tank and become lodged in the pump.
Keeping all your small - light articles of clothing...E.G. nylons, socks, kids clothes, mittens...all together and not getting mixed up and lost during the wash and dryer cycles can also be a problem.
Try using a laundry bag...we use them for all socks ( keeps them separated so my kids cannot steal mine!! )...and helps to stop lose those little articles of clothing. Just throw these types of clothes into the bad, zip it closed and wash and dry. Unzip the bag and put away in the drawers :-)

Hi,

The older style GE washer has a metal wash basket as well as a metal outer tank. This style of a washer also has a access panel on the back of the washer. Get top up by pressing on 2 clips located about 6 inches in from each side between top and cabinet. Putty knife or flat blade screwdriver works well here. From the top you can access the lid switch, tub gasket, fill valve, fill hose, removal of inner basket. To access the motor, motor relay, pump, pump hoses, belt, clutch the back access panel will have to be removed, some back panels are made of cardboard. This washer is a reversing type of washer, for example the motor runs one way to wash, stops, and reverses and the motor runs on the other direction to drain and pump. The timer is responsible to make the washer stop and reverse the motor. There is a clutch assembly built on top of the motor to drive the transmission and pump.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

I have a g.e. washer model wjsr2080t6ww and it is leaking water from underneath


There are 4 common possiblities. 1. Hose from tub to pump has a hole in it
2. Water pump is leaking
3. tub seal has gone bad
4. Water fill manifold has a hole in it

1,2,4 is an easy fix
3 requires removal of the inner tub (not an easy job)

GE top load washer will not advance to drain and spin


A washing machine won't spin if the water can't drain. Check hoses for any kinks or clogs that may prevent the water from draining. If a hose has kinks, try to straighten out the kinked hose. If it can't be straighten sufficiently, replace the hose. If hoses are not kinked, check for clogged hoses. This can be done by using the screwdrivers to remove the hoses and looking for clogs or running a water hose through the clogged hose to remove the clog. Use the rags and bucket to clean up the water that comes out of the hoses when they are disconnected. Once the clog is cleared, put the drain hose back into place. The washer should drain and spin now if a clogged or kinked hose was the problem.

If the washer still won't drain or spin, check to see if the lid is not closing all the way or if the lid switch is not clicking into place. Close the lid and make sure that it closes all the way down. When the lid closes, the lid switch should click. If there is no clicking sound, then the switch may need to be replaced.

Another possibility for a washing machine to not spin or drain is the pump. With the back panel still off the washer, check the pump with the voltmeter to ensure that the pump is getting power.

I can't get the water to spin out of the cylinder. I think it is clogged with feathers from a down blanket I tried to wash. Is there a filter that I can clean out?


You can TRY to blow the clog backwards into the washing machine... by packing a "blow" canister vacuum cleaner or a shop vac on "blow". If the pump is clogged, the reverse pressure will force the clog into the washer... and then you can mix it with some water and try to let it go out in the normal way.

The machine must have the water turned off and the machine must be set to the "drain" setting. The pump will clog sometimes (rare) and I have used air pressure to clear them before.

Only other solution that I know if is to lay the empty washer on its face and access the pump from underneath... disconnect the exhaust hose and try to "fish" out the clog.... good luck

If you can hear the washer move into the cycle where it drains and all other cycles work (ie spin, wash ect). Then you either have a faulty pump or a clog. A pump change is a relatively easy fix. How do...


Remove the front panel. There is a short hose that goes from the tub to the pump. Sometimes you can remove the clog by gently squeezing the tube with the machine on and it will clear. The other option is to get all the water out of it then remove the tube to clear it out.

My ge model wbvh5200j2ww washer wont't start. it has power on the panel but doorwon't latch or start filling.


If the pump filter is clogged, the washer won't even turn on. This filter is located behind the small access panel at the bottom on the front of the washer. Remove access panel, flip down scoop, and unscrew filter. You will need a bowl to catch water that comes out(may smell bad). Pull out filter, clean, and replace. Washer should work normally afterwards.

Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump, maybe a sock. Remove the front panel by sticking a small screwdriver or putty knife just above the front panel to release 2 clips. Drain pump is located bottom right with 2 hoses connected to it. Drain the machine and remove the hoses. Check for obstructions.

Fixing a clogged pump on GE Profile washer


waht u need to do is get a bucket now take the outlet hose and place it into it low to the ground if water comes out then it will be that your pump is faulty and needs replacing but if it doesnt the only way to do it is towels on the floor and with a low pan place this under the sump hose which should be in the middle of your drum which then leads to the pump pull slowly but not enough for the water to push the hose of do this until empty the only other way is to take it outside and pull the outlet hose of this is the quicker and dryiest out of them all but do do the first part to c if the pump is faulty m8

Fixing a clogged pump on GE Profile washer


Take a putty knife and slide it in between the front panel and top to pop the clips that hold on the top. Remove the front panel and you will see the pump down in the front corner. Remove the hoses (watch for water) and you should see any clog. Check hoses and drain line (home) to be sure there is no clog in those while you have it apart. Be sure to unplug your machine before working on it as well. Good Luck!!! Jim
