Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

GE Front Loading Washing Machine seems to be holding water....

My front loading washing machine seems to either be retaining water, so that clothes are still soaking wet when the cycle ends, or the spin cycle isn't working properly....although i di watch one cycle, and the spinning seemed fine, but when the cycle stopped, clothes were soaking, and filled with suds.... HELP! This machine is only a year old.

    Sounds like your drain hose is clogged.

    Thanks for your repsonse. You are correct! it was a clogged drain hose. I would like to make a comment here about GE, in general . My machine was a GE washer, i called their 800 number on a sunday, got a very pleasant english speaking person who set up the appt. within 48 hours. The repair man spoke english, drove up in a GE van, and resolved the problem in 15 minutes, and told me how to resolve it the next time it may happen. I just want to say that i was EXTREMELY IMPRESSED WITH GE SERVICE.

    On the front loading machines there is a filter at the front bottom of the machine. You have to open the cover and you will see a small hose. using a bucket place the hose over the bucket and open the cap on the hose to drain excess water that may be in the chamber and recap the hose when done. next unscrew the filter and clean and wash the filter, Replace the filter and all should be good.

The high speed spin of a front load washer should normally do a good job of getting squeezing out the water but if there is an oversudsing condition that makes it hard for the drain pump to operate then the suds and water will just stay there. First make sure there is no actual clog in the drain line then run a load with no soap or detergent and see what happens. It's always better to use a low suds detergent with this type of machine

Every so often, all the water is not draining at the end of the cycle. The clothes are left clean but soaking wet.

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle

If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

LG front load washer/ clothes still wet after final spin

The heavy jacket prevented the washer from spinning at a rapid pace, so I added a heavy bathrobe to absorb some of the water and to balance the load. The washer then spun very quickly and drained out all the water.

Does not Spin out the water at the end of a load

If it spins the balance is okay. Check out your filter now. And then the pump (after the spigot prob below) 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.

Rate me pl.....if helped.
