    My GE WSSH300GWW has a problem once it goes through the wash cycle it attempts to pump the water out but nothing happens. It makes a noise like it wants to pump but nothing comes through the drain hose. I checked the hose and it is clear. How do I check the pump? Is there a diagnostics test I can run. This machine is just over 1 year old and slightly out of service. Help....

It is probably a clogged pump (don't look in owners manual for info - curiously it isn't in there - just says call tech - bolocks!)

Remove 2 screw on front bottom panel.
Remove cover.
Plastic boot and pump are on right had side. Clean out - and use the change to buy a drink - celebrating the fact you didn't have to spend hundreds on a tech!

    remove front cover (screws on bottom front).
    clean out rubber boot and pump.
    probably just clogged.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

GE front load waher Model #: WSSH300GWW fills and agitates, but does not spin and drain.

take drain hose and lay it in a bucket to drain water or a wet vac works better. remove 2 scews from lower pannel it will drop down and come off. look for a accordian shaped black hose. disconnect it and remove junk in it. check inside the pump inlet for stuff it's the thing one end of the funny hose is hooked to. put back together and don't over tighten clamps nut driver tight is fine.

F&P washer lights on and beeps

Clogged pump stopped up drain. If the washer does not think all water was pumped out in 8 minutes then it shuts down. Slow drain is my first inclination.

Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SW1: Won't drain

The washer drew half a tub of water on the "Bulky items" cycle, and stopped. All the lights on the cycle dial light up and flash, the machine beeps and the me error message in the "estimated time remaining" field is "Ld". I've tried to shut the machine down and change the cycle to "drain and spin" but it will not agitate, won't drain or spin.

My Ge wssh300gww will

As the other posters mentioned, the problem with draining is most likely caused by a clogged filter. Mine had 14 cents, 2 zip ties, and a bra wire stuck in it. Here is the process (after many hours of swearing and bleeding) so that it should be pretty easy.

The first step is to tilt the washer back so the front is 3-5 inches off the ground. Prop it up with something. To remove the front lower panel, there is 2 phillips screws under the bottom edge. Remove the screws and the panel should drop down off the pegs holding the top edge in.

Inside, attached to the drum you will see a rubber boot with an accordion sleeve which contains the filter. There is 2 green spring hose clamps (the source of many expletives) and a silver phillips screw on hose clamp. To get at the filter, you should not need to, nor do you want to, remove the green spring clamps. You will spend hours trying to get them back on.

I have attached a picture for reference. Unscrew the silver clamp (large one, closest to drum) and pull down the sleeve to get access to the filter. If you are full of water, you can slide a pan inside the machine and just pull down the edge closest to the pan to drain until the water is gone. Reach down into the accordion (gross) and grab the filter. It has a lip on it so you will need to work it out through the accordion thing, but it likely has some really gross stuff in it. Clean it out, wad it back into the boot, and reattach to the drum. Dump about 2 gallons of water into your drum to make sure you are not leaking. Switch the knob to spin cycle and hit start 2 times. It should drain the water out within a couple seconds.

Good luck!
