Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Draining, spinning? This is a brand new machine.  First time it was used, it stopped just before the spin cycle.  When restarted, the pump would run, but very little water would come out.  It seemed like the machine didn't know any better than to stop pumping or start spinning.  The machine would then shut down, probably because it was overheating or something.  All hoses are clear, the drain is installed properly, and the pump should not be jammed, this machine is brand new.

    are the transport bolts removed?  If so, are the plastic inserts also removed that the bolts screw into?

Check the filter as a matter of course, i bet there is something blocking the pump/filter flow.

Machine stopped in mid cycle with the drain/unlocking light on. No error codes. Machine goes directly to the drain/unlocking position after start. Will not fill, spin, operate. Any ideas?

Drum will not spin


did he run the diagnostics per the tech sheet within the machine?if it will do everything else but spin out,then the drain pump is plugged,as a plugged drain pump will shut down these front load units,you will need to remove hoses off pump and clean out pump and all hoses from tub to drain stand pipe,by running the diagnostics you can run each washer cycle and see what cycle isnt performing in a matter of 5 minutes versus 1 hour real wash time on some cycles

Hi our Bosch exxcel washing machine has stopped spinning and doesn't reach the end of its cycle most of the time. If it does the washing is still soaking and needs a new rinse and spin cycle after....


Hi gillsteer,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)
