    joe, while I was waiting I took the front panel off and removed the pump which was totally clogged with lint.

    Before I put everything back together is there a way to test the pump to see if it might have burned out? I see that it's 110 V and I could attach a plugged wire to the terminals but I think I'd rather connect the pump to the machine....is there a way to set the washer dial so that the pump would work without water being involved??

If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out. To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port. Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job. If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

    Hello Gab. Good, glad you found the culprit... Yes the pump is 110 and yes you can test it without water but I want to caution you that more than a VERY quick test without water could in and of itself ruin the pump. If you do decide to test it dry only operate it for ten seconds or so. Joe

My GE SpaceSaver Washer/dryer will wash, but when it's time to rinse and spin the machine stops. It will not drain, riinse , or spin.


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

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.

Hello: I have a tenant who is having problems with a GE Spacemaker washer/dryer -Stylemaster # is 622866-A. Here is how she describes the problem: ...it seems as though the washer isn't functioning...


If a spin and drain problem you can pull the front off to see if perhaps a small item (ie. sock or like size item) is stuck between basket and tub or in the drain hose? If it is a wash time problem that would be another direction.

My GE space saver stackable washing machine will


Im haveing the same exact problem on the same exact machine... I have taken all the pannels off, and drained the water. I was wondering if there may be a way that the pump lost it's prime and needs to be re-primed? (wishfull thinking on my part.) There was no indication that the pump burnt out, it just stopped working instantly with no symptoms. The other functions seem to work, it will agitate the laundry, and then will just stop when it comes to the pump cycle. Any help is appreciated. Thank You.

Washer won't spin and empty the water out of the


Shirley, it may be the drain pump is obstructed or possibly the lid switch is broken. If you washed bath mats or rubber backed rugs recently i would go for the pump. If you washed a semi bulky item with a tendency to float I would go for the switch.
Get me a model number and I can help you with dis-assembly if you'd like further help!
