GE Washer stuck in wash cycle and not draining.

Hi, i have GE washer model GFWN1000L1WW, that keeps getting stuck in the wash cycle around the 20 something minute. It front loaded drum doesn't move and you can hear the machine humming and clicking once in a while. The door unlocks and the start button just starts blinking. Can't drain the water because can't get past this cycle. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Should be a small trap door at bottom front. This allows access to the drain pump cleanout. The pump could be blocked. Be advised that if you unscrew the cleanout while tub is full the water will come out onto the floor. Unplug machine before doing this.

Humming is usually the result of bad motor windings , are u saying it washes for 20 minutes or just stays on that cycle without doing any washing? a non moving drum can be a bad motor coupler or belt if belt driven.

Testimonial: "Hi, the drum does turn and takes in the water after it measures the load, it then washes for about 15 minutes, at which point stops as if to let water drain and simply gets stuck there humming very low; then unlocks the door and start button starts blinking. From other posts I read I suspect to be the water pump, especially knowing the washer was in unheated yet piped room where temps got below freezing. Any thoughts? If I'm right, how do I access the pump? Thanks again"

    YES MAY BE THE PUMP AS IF U HAVE A DRAIN PROBLEM DUE TO BLOCKAGE IN HOSES OR PUMP, U MAY GET A LIGHT HUM SOUND ALSO. U CAN CHECK IT MANUALLY BY TAKING PUMP OFF AND TRYING TO TURN THE PROPELLER BY HAND AND INSPECT BY EYE SIGHT FOR ANYTHING STUCK IN IT. ALSO CHECK ALL HOSES FOR OBSTRUCTION

SOURCE: front load GE wont spin or wash

I can't find your models breakdown but it sound like a bad motor. if it drains and fills you have a good pump. if you had just a bad motor control if mostly would agitate. If the motor hums then you are getting power to it.. if you have no hum you can check for power with a meter.. if no power you have a bad control.. if you have power you have a bad motor... let me know what yo find out.. krazytech

I removed the three screws, and lower cover cleaned the few pennies, screws and nasty gunk build up from the filter. The wash machine seems to function as it did prior to the clogged issue. Thank you everyone !!!

SOURCE: ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.

Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

My the front load washer model gcvh6900jww has the red lock on the display. I accidentally held the start button for a few seconds and it locked. I tried holding the start button again for up to 20 seconds...


  1. Found This HelpfulSometimes something will go wrong in your washing machine that will cause it to lock up or stall. An overloaded washer or a brief power surge can cause this. The washer may not drain or spin properly, or it may stop the cycle in the middle of the wash. Another cause may be that the washer was stopped before the cycle was able to complete. In this case, the washer will spin and drain over the next 24 hours, but it will stall before reaching the final spin. GE has two simple methods to reset the controls
For Newer Washers:
    • 1 Unplug the washer.
    • 2 Twist the control dial around the cycle settings.
    • 3 Place the dial on any setting other than the final spin.
    • 4 Ensure that the water line is securely attached to the washer.
    • 5 Plug the washer back into the wall (making sure it has gone at least 30 seconds without power).

Ge super capacity plus washer. Mod wlse3150a0ww. no matter what setting it always starts on rinse then goes to spin.It also will not drain.


If the washer is stopped mid cycle it will default to rinse and spin. It will then get stuck in a loop. It is necessary to reset the electronics. Unplug the electrical cord from the unit. Wait 30 seconds. Turn the cycle selector all the way around clockwise. Turn it again and set it on any setting accept rinse or spin. Plug the unit in. It should begin a new cycle and be working normally.

GE Washer keeps getting stuck in drain cycle


When you replace the timer before did you tighten up the connectors? and you can figure out your budget I can't $60.00 for a new timer or $1000.00 for a new one. if it lasted for a few years I could find a use for the money elsewhere. But if it has other probems then by all means replace the machine.
