Question about GE Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a GE whre5550h1ww. Final rinse hi-speed spin cycle duration appears to be shortened and clothes remain wet. What are the cycle times supposed to be and how can it be corrected? Thanks.

During the regular/cotton wash setting, there is only a 30 second hi-speed spin. I have removed the front panel and confirmed pump and hoses are good as well as the pressure switch hose. All water is being pumped out.

Sir,

The motor on this washer turn one way to wash and the other way to spin and drain.

So if the washer is spinning and not draining you have a pump problem.Take the front panel off and watch to see what is happening.

You will have to check for power to the motor in spin. Either the motor is bad or the timer or both. Refer to the schematic for this.


Thanks
Good luck

SOURCE: Clothes still wet after final spin cycle

It sounds like you might have a broken belt or the belt just slipped off the pulley!

SOURCE: Clothes remain dripping wet after the wash cycle is complete.

I assume you have removed the lint filter at the bottom of the machine and cleaned it out to make sure the pump is not stalled on a 1 pence or bra clip. Can you hear the motor start to spin? If not its probably because the water level switch is gunged up at the bottom of its rubber tube where it comes from the drum. Remove the top of the machine and locate the pressure switch - usually a round black or white device about 80 to 100mm across with a rubber pipe on a small spout 8mm diameter. Take the pipe clip off using pliers to compress it and move it back down the pipe. Remove the pipe and blow hard down the pipe to try and clear the blockage - you will hear bubbles blowing in the bottom of the drum water. Also you could very very gently blow into the switch stub pipe and listen for it changing over - clicks usually twice each way - blow - two clicks, release - two clicks. Restore swtch pipe and try the machine again. Good luck.

SOURCE: water leaks during final spin cycle only

Hi,
The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with metal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

The fault could be with the drain out pump blocked or restricted in some way. Un-plug machine from electrical wall socket.

A small panel at rear of machine reveals the pump, pull out the two pipes (plastic clips hard to get off, slide them sideways), remove wire and un-clip pump from base of machine by lifting locking tab and sliding to the left, pump can then easily be cleaned. Of course be prepared for a lot water, junk overflow; careful it does not fall on wires.

Electrolux front load washing machine ew10001 spin cycle slow on "SPIN" setting runs fine through regular wash setting? any ideas?


Hello jamespeattie - Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

hi, there may be not enough water draining out on the last cycle before it spins so i'd give the pump a good luck over also check the filter if it has 1, and check the drain hose. the other fault could be the module control board this controls the motor speed hope it helps

My washer will not spin!!!!!!!!


If water remains in the drum the unit will not go into the final spin. There may be a couple of reasons which I have experienced resulting in your problem. If water remains in the tub the unit will not go into the high speed spin.

1.) A coin or other foreign object could block the drain hose. Check the drain hose for foreign objects impeding the exit of the water. Shake the hose and listen for coins or a small object this unit will pass items through the pump into the hose causing blockage.

2.) The Drain hose is not raised above the machine outlet to create a siphon effect. See your manual for proper hose positioning. The hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly.

3.) The pump is a third possibility which you should hear the impeller spinning during the drain cycle. There is a coin catch before the pump that looks like a rubber boot that should be inspected for objects if you remove the pump. The pump is about $60.00 and is accessible after removing the front panel under the door. It is easy access from the front and the hose clamps will be the most difficult problem. I have a ratcheting hose clamp tool designed for this type of clamp but channel lock pliers or vice grips will work.

If the washer will not agitate during the wash cycle you will need to remove the back panel to inspect the belt and spider pulley. You will also notice a counter weight at the top of the tub. Make sure the counter weight is tight and is not loose to prevent future problems.

Yesterday made a grinding noise and leaked water out on the floor from under unit.it still works


The noise would be indeed coming from the water pump.

To clean the pump on this top-loader you have to unplug it, pop the top open, and remove the front face of the cabinet to expose the motor and pump.

Slip off the two metal clips hugging the pump to the motor. Place a towel under the motor before detaching the hoses - there's a plastic drip pan between the pump and motor to guide the water away from the motor.

Unclamp the two hoses from the pump by squeezing their spring-clamps with pliers and sliding them further down the hose. Pull the hoses off by lifting the pump off its axle and pulling it out while wiggling the hoses loose. Check if anything jammed in the pump - it must have fallen to the outside of the basket but inside the drum during the last spin cycle, and went down the drain hose. Check the pump for damage and replace if necessary.

For future troubleshooting, remember that a clogged pump causes squealing, diminished spin speed, and slow drainage.

The first thing I would do is to inspect the inner tub. Empty your washer and carefully check all holes inside the inner tub and under the agitator for any foreign objects and remove if any.

If it's nothing there then you have to remove the front panel. Tape the lid to the top panel. Using a putty knife push in to release top panel clips on both sides. Lift up the top panel toward the back.

Remove the screws on top of the front panel on each side. Pull out the top of the front panel toward yourself for about 30 degrees and release it from the bottom clips. Now you have an access to inside the washer. Run the washer without the front panel and try to locate the sound. Let me know your findings.

What does "IE" mean when it attempts spin cycle?


is it IE or LE please confirm it. if it is LE code the fixing procedure is given below This usually happens if you're washing on a delicate setting with a moderate load of clothes. Apparently, delicate also means very few items to wash. To clear the LE code - no need to unload the clothes:
1. Press the power button to turn the washer off.
2. Press the power button to turn the washer back on.
3. Cycle the spin cycle selection to 'no spin'.
4. Press start.
The washer should set to one minute, lock the doors, then drain out the excess water.
Once the 'End' cycle comes up, unplug the machine for several minutes.
Plug the washer back in, press the power button, then set the washer to 'normal' with 'low' spin setting.
Note that the only difference between the normal setting and delicate is the wash time and spin cycle speed. If you have a moderate to large load of delicates, use the normal setting on low spin cycle. The clothes really don't care. Also, make sure you're using 'HE' detergent - low suds. Regular degergent in a front load is not recommended.

Frigidair front load washer won't drain during spin cycle


The main reason these units wont drain is because the drain pump is plugged. Remove the front access panel at the bottom the pump is located on the right hand side at the front. Get rid of water in unit with a shop vac, disconnect wires from pump remove hoses clean out pump and rubber hose to the tub reassemble and try. good luck

Spin/Drain cycle...Kenmore 417.40042990 Front load belt drive washer.


If the water is draining quickly (less than 30 secs) every time, than it sounds like its sensing an out of balance load, the CCU looks for this.... Before every spin cycle it goes through an out of balance routine it will do this even when empty.....It speeds up, slows down and will tumble again at least once....then speeds up ....looks at motor amps......decelerates.....looks at rate of deceleration.......Then decides if its ok to spin at the high speed...or if it should tumble again to distribute the clothes....If it cant balance itself to what it like than it will spin at a lower speed like yours is doing if its bad enough than it wont spin at all really (very slow). Im sure you checked the shocks while you were looking at the pump, but double check that there not broken at the mounts, or lots of grease at the base mount. If thats all good than you should try this......Sort a large size load of just regular tshirts and casual wear (no towels, jeans). Let me know how it spins then. Also make sure that its draining quickly every time. Sometimes the drain pump can appear fine and not be starting every time.
