If your water keeps flowing out, it could be that the pipe behind is not at the correct level, about three feet from ground level; your pump pumps the water out OVER this height. It should not be at ground level.

Is it normal for the washing machine to start and stop the spinning while the machine is in each cycle? Should it take over an hour to run one wash cycle?

Yes...they use less they start, tumble, then cycle again adding more water. I use the fastest setting on all my clothes which is 1/2 hour. It also does start and stop during spinning to tumble the clothes. It speeds up as it goes thru each stop till it spins real fast. All my clothes wash perfectly on fastest cycle.

GE Profile washing machine--- spinning does not stop.

Sounds like the water pump may be faulty. That would keep it from pumping the water out, which might keep it spinning in an attempt to empty the drum of water.

Water pumps are generally accessible from the rear, via an access panel. Check it for debris or a worn bearing. It should be obvious.

Washer fills and empties but won't wash or spin

If the motor is spinning very rapidly when it should just be tumbling then it sounds like the tacho has gone or come loose on the motor.It may well need a new motor or there could even be a fault with the main programmer

My issue: watertank is full, when powered, coffee buttons and the left LED are blinking. When I open the steam valve, the pump works for like 5-10 seconds then stops, neither water nor steam come out. Same...

You have a restriction in your flow meter or inlet opening. Usually it's the flow meter. The flow meter is connected to the intake opening on the back of the machine by a silicone hose. The other hose connected to the flow meter goes to the suction side of the pump. The intake side of the flow meter has a small opening and the other side connected to the pump has a large opening. When the pump turns on and everything is clear, the small side of the flow meter creates a jet of water that spins the turbine. This lets the computer know that water is present and turns the heater on. If the turbine doesn't spin the computer thinks the pump is bad and turns the light on for water and keeps the heater from turning on and burning up. You need to clear the small opening in the flow meter.

High speed drum rinse ..drum not spinning during rinse cycle

Clean out coin collector thoroughly. Replace drain pump if necessary. Water will drain if you can place drain hose on floor and let water siphon out.

Short water flow time

If it's new you should call for service. Ask the technician to turn the water level switch set screw so it will stop filling at a higher setpoint rather than stopping at the edge of the gray cylinder baffels.You are aware the factory water level switch is pre set for low level because of water restriction regulations for manufacturers.But that means nothing for me if my laundry is comming out still dirty.. Much later and after much research i turned the water level switch set screw under the lid clockwise a half turn to have my WM0642HW fill up to the lower door seal to tumble in some water.How it was set before resulted in terrible wash performance especially with full loads! Forget it! It was WICK washing instead of tumbling in some water.Since i made the adjustment on the water level sensor the washer is 100% better than before.Trust Me!

Won't spin clothes dry... possibly bad wiring??

Casa, make sure your model number starts with 417.43042 otherwise this post is trash. First have your husband drop the bottom panel and check the drain pump for debris, coins, etc. This model will not go into high spin if the pressure switch detects there is water in the tub. There was also a service flash out on this model regarding the timer not advancing. This had to do with electrical noise generated by the opening and closing of the timer contacts. This sent corrupt signals to the motor controller and the washer would stall in cycle. They corrected this problem by adding 3 jumpers to the motor controller. Part 134306000. My feeling is that you have a pump drain issue, but it's hard to tell without being back.
