Re: Fixing a clogged pump on GE Profile washer

Waht u need to do is get a bucket now take the outlet hose and place it into it low to the ground if water comes out then it will be that your pump is faulty and needs replacing but if it doesnt the only way to do it is towels on the floor and with a low pan place this under the sump hose which should be in the middle of your drum which then leads to the pump pull slowly but not enough for the water to push the hose of do this until empty the only other way is to take it outside and pull the outlet hose of this is the quicker and dryiest out of them all but do do the first part to c if the pump is faulty m8

Wsm2700dawww dryer will spin laundry still wet

Possible that the speed is of the spin is not enough, check the belt , check for friction to the shaft in the washer.
finally check the drain valve /pump as if there is water logged on without flushing then the valve is clogged or dirty.

Washing machine will not drain

The drain line is probably clogged. Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. In this case it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump.Remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. In case it clean there, check the outer tub port- open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port.
Thanks for contacting

Not Draining

Your pump, or the hose between the drum and pump, might be clogged.  Check it out.  You might find coins from unemptied pockets.

Fixing a clogged pump on GE Profile washer

Take a putty knife and slide it in between the front panel and top to pop the clips that hold on the top. Remove the front panel and you will see the pump down in the front corner. Remove the hoses (watch for water) and you should see any clog. Check hoses and drain line (home) to be sure there is no clog in those while you have it apart. Be sure to unplug your machine before working on it as well. Good Luck!!! Jim

Ge Profile Harmony Washer doesn't drain properly.

It sound like you have a blocked pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check where do you have this clogged, inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. Good luck!
