The pump is not getting the signal from the timer.
If it's the older mechanical timer, then you'd have to remove the timer to fix the bad connection.

Try setting the timer to the drain position and see if you can hear the pump running.

Hope this helps.

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.

My washer is not draining. I used to be able to reset it and it would work but now it wont start on any setting and is full of water. Is there anything i can try.


Hi,
If your Maytag washer is not draining, follow these procedures to find out what is the problem.Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the knob to turn the washer on. If the washer motor doesn't run, check the following parts.



The wall outlet: Make sure that there are about 120 volts present at the wall outlet. Connect a good working hair dryer to see if it works.If the hair dryer works ok, then the problem has to be in the washer. If the hair dryer doesn't work, then look for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.


The lid or door switch : The lid switch is a safety device use to stop the motor from running if the washer door is opened during the agitation or spin cycles. A bad lid switch could be the reason for your washer not draining.

The pump : Check for obstructions inside of the pump and inside of the tub.
Check the pump impeller, the pump belt, check the drain hose for any kinks. Any problems in these parts could be the cause for the Maytag washer not draining.
Lower the drain hose to a bucket to see if the water drains out. If the water won’t drain or just trickles out, most likely there is an obstruction on the pump or inside of the tub and that could cause the washer not draining.
To check the pump, remove the front panel, lean the washer against the wall and bail the water out with a plastic container.
To check the pump, remove the pump belt and turn the pump pulley to make sure that the pulley is turning freely.
Put a couple towels near the pump to catch any water from the pump. Remove the tub to pump hose at and check inside of the pump for any obstruction. If you find an obstruction remove it.
If you don’t find anything, reinstall the hose and remove the hose at the tub, and check for obstructions.
A Maytag washer not draining could be cause simply by a kink drain hose.
You need to make sure that when you replace the pump, you adjust the belts properly.

I have a GE Spacemaker washer and the clothes just started coming out super wet... it seems as though the FINAL SPIN isn't spinning... any idea how to fix?


if your water is not leaving the tub check your drain hose; (see how much/fast the water discharges) or, an obstruction; or, your pump for a sock or, some other soft obstruction

Washer wont drain


Pump him blocked !

Either a coin or a small piece of clothing has got into the pump lines

Drop the drain hose into a bucket to remove the water

Check the lint trap to see if their is anything in the pump which is jamming the impeller

If not you may have to remove the hose from the pump to the drum to check for obstructions

GE WJSR2050T2WW Washer fills up,Spins but won't drain out?


The most common reason for no pump out is a blockage in the pump. Best to drain as much water as possible. (even laying the drain hose down to allow as much of the water to drain out as possible) Un-plug washer. Next, open the front of the washer by using a putty knife to push in and release the clips about two inches in from each side at the seam where the front panel meets the washer top. Pull the front panel forward and lift it off the bottom pegs. Remove spring clamps from inlet and outlet of pump with a plier. Remove two pump mounting screws to allow pump removal after unplugging electrical leads. Remove obstruction from pump. Most pump bodies can be separated if necessary. Reassemble, plug back in and test.

GE WJSE3110A washer, won't drain


On a scale of 1 -10, I'd rate this about a 3.5 in difficulty.
Un plug machine.
Use a putty knife to push the clips in at the seam of the front panel and the washer's top, about two inches in from each side to allow you to pull the front panel forward and then lift it off the bottom pegs.
If you took off that drain hose, you shouldn't have any water left in the machine, so take the two squeeze hose clamps off the pump hoses, the electrical wires off the pump, and the two 3/8 size bolts holding the pump to the washer's base.
Now check to see if the pump is plugged or obstructed with an object. Replace pump with cleaned out or new pump as necessary.

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.
