    Is this a belt-driven top-load washer? Can you hear the motor running when the unit is supposed to be spinning/draining? Does it agitate? Charlie

Unplug machine. Scoop out water. Remove front panel by pressing in on clips at the seam with the top, using a putty knife. Remove pump mounting screws and hoses from pump (you will spill some water) and clean out obsturctions. Reassemble and test. May need to be repeated.

Problem washing pillows. They get full of water and washer won't spin the water out.


You can remove the pillows and squeeze most of the water out and then put them back in to spin the rest. Washers weren't really made to wash pillows and pillows werent really made to be washed in a washer. Get new pillows and put hypoallergenic covers to keep the funk out. Wash the covers as necessary.
Alternatively heating and tumbling them in the dryer might get rid of whatever aspect you were trying to neutralize or wash out of the pillows.

Waont drain


I would check the pump.
Follow the drain hose back to the pump, disconnect the outlet hose from the pump and disconnect the inlet hose from the pump. Look inside both hoses and the pump for pillow pieces.

The pump may have to be removed for cleaning, you should be able to turn the pump by hand, if not, replace the pump.

Inner tub.
Run some water in the washer with the inlet hose disconnected from the pump. You'll need a pan or bucket for the water to run into and look for pillow pieces.

Water Won't Drain from Washing Machine


Hello phylislw61,
If you had an incident where a pillow broke and feathers where dispersed throughout the washer..then there is a good chance that teh drain fiilter screen, pump or hose feeding the pump is clogged. I would verify that the filter is free from anything that would limit water flow from getting to the pump.. then if the problem is still there.. examine the pump itself to make sure it isn't clogged...
If you or someone in your family is reasonably handy, here is a link to your washing machines exploded view and parts and this should provide sufficient information for how to access the pump and associated hoses etc that feed into and out of it for cleaning..
If you are having problems after you verify the lines are free of restriction, feel free to contact me and I will try to assist you in solving your problem.. Here is the link..

I washed a feather pillow and it busted, now it wont pump water out.


There is a filter down in the bottom front of the washer (below the drum) that is probably clogged with feathers. It is a pain to get to, but once you get it cleaned out, the washer should spin and drain without problems.

GE washer, does not spin


You probably broke the 4 black snubber straps on the top of the tub lid and it is cousing your washer to always be off balance and not reach a full speed spin
