Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Starts out draining

My washer seems to be shooting the water straight out into the sink at the start of the normal cycle, like it's getting ready to rinse before washing has even started.  It is also much louder than it used to be.  It seems to work ok on the permanent
press settings.  Any ideas on how to get the normal cycle back to normal?  Thanks!

What you are experiencing is what i have experienced for the past 6 months...do something now before it gets worse.....

I have discovered that there should be a warning with the NEW FRONT LOAD washers, and that is....ALWAYS EMPTY out pockets of clothes. WIth the typical top load machines...its seems that the "stuff" we left in pockets, ended up in the bottom of the disc of the washing machine, and actually became a game with me...how much money could i find after washing my husbands pants!...never able to go much further than that....but with the front load machines....whats left in the pockets, gets "eaten" by the machine , and the rubbery entrance in the front of the machine.....but items never to be seen, until you pay the a repair man to come out and tell you what you shouldn't do!

SO....sounds to me like, your drain hose is getting clogged, what you are experiencing is what i was experiencing for about 1 month before the machine just stopped working altogether! you can take off the front bottom cover (there are prob screws there) and then there should be a hose and sometimes a trap (where, if you are like us,...the repairman found about 5 dolloars worth of coins) that you can empty out...i guess depending on you type of machine....mine was a GE)

Water coming out of hose at home plumbing


Hello.Maybe the drain is blocked.it sounds like your machine is working ok to me,if you can hang the hose over the edge of a laundry tub & make sure the plug is out,see if the water drains away,otherwise it sounds like a plumbing problem not the machine.it started only after you moved houses so more likely the plumbing.hope i helped.

My Hotpoint washer is not draining water...it starts its cycle, but when it get to the spin/drain cycle, it doesnt do anything...I have checked all the hoses I can think of...what could it be?


Take the front panel off by using a putty knife to push in the two clips at the seam where the front panel meets the washer's top. Dissmount the water pump and remove the hoses. (be ready to deal with the water which will come gushing out of the tub) Remove blockage in the pump. Re-assemble and test.

Does washer drain before the spin cycle starts?


Normally yes. There are around 12 to 20 gallons of water in the tub after the wash cycle, which will be anywhere from 63 to 110 pounds of weight in addition to the weight of the clothes. For the machine to start the spin cycle to remove this water would place a heavy load on the motor, gearcase, pullys, belts, gears, ect. With the water drained, the load is lighter, and much easier to start spinning the excess water out of the clothes. The normal cycles are: Fill, Agitate, Drain, Spin, Rinse Fill, Agitate for rinse, Drain, Spin Cycle and off. Imagine trying to spin a 5 gallon bucket of water over your head, full of water, and then empty. Which one do you think would be easier to do? And safer for you.

hi,

F/H No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.

Or

If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.


Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. 
If there is no water in the unit:
1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves 
3. Verify inlet valve operation 
If there is water in the unit:
1. Verify Drain pump operation
2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch 
Verify there is not a siphon problem 
Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU) 
Check all hoses for possible leaks 
Verify pressure switch operation

Verify flow meter operation 
Verify CCU operation.

hope this helps.....
