Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

Still doesn't spin

We checked out the posts on this site and cleaned out the filter, which only had .11 and some hair. The spin still just barely spins for a couple minutes, then stops.
Is it possible to open the pump to see if anything is in it? Or does anyone of another problem it could be?

Thanks

You can open the pump just dont lose or break the o ring when doing so, elastic bands and hair bobbles can get stuck in the fins of the pump causing inefficency. also check all tubes coins can get stuck in these and act like a valve.
another reason that the machine wont spin through is if the load is out of ballance it can cause the machine cancel if it feels it has an uneven load, or if the brushes on the motor are worn the motor looses torque with a load in it you could try to spin it with no load in the machine to check this?

Brush won't turn after cleaning out debris, belt is fine.


I have the Dyson Animal, the purple one. I frequently have to take the bottom apart where the brush is at to cut all the threads and hair off the brush. This last time it would not spin afterward. As far as I know there is no reset button, however, I did find out that it was switched to bare floors and THAT is WHY the brush was not spinning. Once I switched it back to carpet all was well. I have had this for years and never knew that the brush did not spin when it was on bare floor setting. Hope this helps!

Brush won't spin when carpet cleaner is running


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the vacuum cleaner brush is not spinning, the brushroll bearing might be jammed. Try removing the brushroll assembly and cleaning all hair, string, lint, etc. from the brushroll bearing. If that doesn't solve the problem the brushroll may need to be replaced.

Asko 12505 fills with water, doesn't rotate, doesn't spin or drain.


Hello.


If your washer is indeed a WFL2066, than the not spinning is directly relatedto the unit not draining.

These machines by design cannot spin if the drain is inadequate.

Here is the first step in resolving the problem, you need to access the drainpump/filter to clean it.

To reach the filter and clean it...

**Unplug the washer from the dryer or wall, or turn off the 30amp breakerat the home service panel...safety first**

1) Open the small square plastic door at the right bottom of thewasher.

2) Via the small hose drain any access water from the pump...this is where awet/dry shop-vac comes in handy, or a shallow pan with a few towels works aswell.

3) Then turn the pump insert/button trap counter clock-wise and pull out.Clean the trap out thoroughly running it under hot water and mild soap or yourwasher detergent and inspect inside the pump for any other foreignobjects/obstructions.

4) Re-install the lint trap insuring it is good and snug/tight. Beforeclosing up the small access door, run a short rinse spin cycle to check forleaks.

Let me know how you make out, or if you require further assistance.

My whirlpool duet will go through full wash cycle and when it get to rinse it does full rinse but light for spin does not go on and it doesn't spin it stays in spin cycle (no light on) but it does not...


Hi

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

The brush is clean and spinning but it isnt picking up anything and just pushing pet hair around.


You mentioned pet hair. Remove the brush cover and check for a plug (possibly pet hair). Sounds as though you have a plug somewhere and it's not allow the suction to pull it through. Also check your filter and clean or replace as necessary. Hint; Never let you container get over half full, it reduces the suction.

Doesn,t read and start disc


Clean the lens with a soft cotton cloth but be careful not to touch it with bare hands. Make sure the lens is not soiled with dust.
Note: if it says 'NO DISC" immediately after closing the tray, check capstan motor if spins smoothly. It is the one spinning the disc. Open the unit's casing to have a view of the disc when playing. If it doesn't spin, replace capstan motor.

Red rotor is not spinning.


Unscrew the plastic cap, take the rotor out and clean out any hair or debris that might be in the hole or on the rotor. Fixes mine every time.

Hair on top of washable filter on d14 animal


One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. Check that all the seals are undamaged and in place, especially the big black ring at the bottom of the yellow bit inside the clear bin.  Also check that the bin base closes tight after you've emptied it.
If this doesn't help, please post a response and I'll try again.  If it does help, please remember to rate me!
