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.

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

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect


Hope this may help;

My front loading Samsung washing machine does not seem to have enough water in it during the wash cycle. In fact, you can not see any water at all. The clothing only appears to be moderately wet.


run the unit with no clothes in once it has stopped check the water level. in the rear of the tub the water hould be 3 1/2 inches deep and 14 inches wide.and will taper off towards the front of the drum.

How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850


Hi,
  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    We just bought a front loading machine and it seems to have hardly any water while washing. How much water should there be? Right now it looks like only the clothes are wet but no other water sitting in...


    Front load washing machins are very water conservative. In fact a lot of moldern F/L washers use so little water that it doesn't even come up to the bottom of the door.
    If the machine completes it's cycle, it obviously 'thinks' it's getting enough water to continue..
    IMPORTANT...Do not overuse detergent!! This can seriously shorten the life of a F/L...! You're treating the amount of water...NOT the amount of clothes...Happy Washing
    Good luck....Nomess

    Which washing machine is better front load or top load?


    Front load washing machines are better than top load money wise.

    One advantage of a front loading washing machine is an increased capacity. Since there is no central agitator, the horizontally-oriented drum can hold at least 20 to 30% more clothing per load. For a large family, this could mean running only three loads in a front loading washing machine compared to five in a top loader. Fewer loads often translates to savings in utility bills and water usage.

    Another advantage of a front loading washing machine is less water and detergent usage. A top loading washer must use enough water to cover the highest level of the clothes. A front loading washing machine, on the other hand, only uses enough water to cover approximately the lower third of the tub at most.

    check the inlet hose screens by shutting off the water and unscrewing the hoses at the machine. Sedimet is trapped in the screen reducing water flow.
