Replace the Inner spin Tub #131618500 with Trunion and outer Shell # 131525500 with the bearing. There is enough wear and tear in these parts that the belt will come on in one direction and not the other.

Ron, be sure the wheel the belt goes around is not loose. The belt will come off if it is loose.

My GE 6600 front-loader will not drain/spin. Cleaned filter, twice. Worked briefly. Now having same problem

it must drain before it will spin-make sure there's no blockage-check the trap to make sure you have no blockage. you may also have a bad drive belt-but my best bet is on blockage-cheers Denny

How do i unclogg the drain pump in affinity front loader washer

Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front, screws beneath; if you find a pipe there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp (or unscrew) that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out. You will be able to see/access the pump.
If helped pl say so.

Will not empty of water

If it's a front load washer the coin trap may be clogged up with a sock I have found dollar bills, baby socks,bra wires, you name it in them.It could also be a door switch.If it does not drain or spin then I would check the door switch.Coin trap is usually the problem with a front load washer.
If a top load then either drain pump or clogged line I have found garments in the drain pump but it is rare.Check to make sure the pump is getting electricity if not a direct drive pump.

I have a kenmore front loader recently it has decided to stop spinning and retain water. Help?

Regardless of model, this is probably a drain pump problem. With many Kenmore washers, there is a pump trap that can become plugged. Remove the washer's bottom front panel, if there is a white drain pump casing, turn out the pump trap counter-clockwise, making sure to have a bucket to catch the water. Check and clean the trap, and try to spin the pump impeller, if the pump impeller is stuck, something may actually be stuck in the impeller. If the impeller feels wobbly, you will want to just replace the drain pump entirely. Depending on the model, there may just be a hose connecting directly to the pump, with no trap available, just pull the hose off and check for an item plugging the pump. With any model, there will be WATER that will POUR out. Be prepared.

GE washing macine stops during the wash cycle

This is exactly what my machine was doing, as well. I fixed it by cleaning out the filter in front of the water pump.

Searching here, I found that you can remove the lower front panel (three screws along the bottom edge is all it takes) to get to the filter. With the panel removed, you'll see a round white plastic cover (about 3-4 inches diameter) that screws out. Get a bucket under the cover to catch the water that's in it (could be 2 quarts or more) and unscrew the cover.

The cover pulls out, revealing that is actually a screw-in plastic strainer. I found tons of coins, broken pens, paper clips, etc. in mine when I did this. A lot will be deep inside the black rubber hose that connects this filter housing to the washer drum. You can rake the stuff out with a bent wire clothes hanger. Shaking the black hose will help hurry the junk along and out of your machine. Screw the cover back on after the clean out and your machine should go back to normal.

Thinking about it, front loaders will have lots of small items flushed into the pump compared to top loaders. Coins you alway found in the bottom of the drum in a top loader, they all wind up in the filter of a front loader. And once it slow the drainage to a crawl the machine will shut down multiple times when it can't drain the water out completely, and it will never step up to it's max spin speed with all that water still in the drum.

Cleaned trap; but still won't drain...

Surely your pump is clogged, which you should dismantle to check or replace.

A very important thing for all front loaders, all pockets should be checked before dumping in machine, small items should be placed in pillow case or special plastfc bag - so they don't slip into inner drum by accident, and clog pipes, etc.
