GE Spacemaker Will Not Drain

My GE Spacemaker (model WSM2700DAWWW) is not draining after an incidentinvolving our autistic son. He stuffed a shirt in the washer betweenits drum and frame so that, when the spin cycle began, it could notspin. We smelled/saw some smoke. Initially, it had some clothes in itand would not spin even after removing the shirt, but after I removedthe clothes from the drum, it began to spin again as normal.

However, the water in the drum (probably 2/3 full) will not drain. Ichecked the hose in the back, and it appears to be seated properlywhere it enters the washer. Still, with the metal backing, it's hard totell much of anything.

So... I'm wondering what the next steps are. I'd love to fix it myself, and am relatively handy.

Thanks in advance for all your help,
Bryan

    Thanks so much - turned out that something was caught in the hose from tub to pump. Cheap solution!

Bryan, your drain pump on this stacked unit is electric so it is not operated by a belt. You want to remove the front panel. There should be 2 screws on the bottom front and the panel will either lift out and off or pull down and off. You will see the drain pump. You want to put it into spin and see if you have power going to that pump. If you have a meter, just insert the probes on the harness to the pump, should have 120V.. Or you can see if it's just humming. You could have something caught in the impeller. You might have something caught in the hose from tub to pump. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a shop vac ready and check out the pump. Catriver.

You don't reveal full model number. It's not likely that a coin is blocking the water. The pump (part of the motor assembly) may be partially blocked inside or a garment (sock, u-shirt, etc.) may be blocking the water inlet to the pump. It's too early to remove the agitator.

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.

My spacemaker will not drain or function in spin cycle


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

When the unit is unable to drain it will not even work in spin cycle, the problem is with blocked drain/drain pump filter which should be cleaned. If after cleaning the problem comes back then the drain pump needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
