SOURCE: ge washer quits filling and spinning mid cycle

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and just happened to see that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer, a front load washer, or a dishwasher, I suggest you
go directly to where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as many other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to where they have very good trouble shooting and repair nformation on most washers and dryers, dishwashers and many other household appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer on a washer, they hardly ever go bad. I realize I haven't solved your problem for you, but I hope I have sent you to a place that will help you solve the problem. Good luck with it.

SOURCE: my ge front loader will not spin. the door is

This sounds like your filter is clogged. Why would a filter have anything to do with spinning. When the filter is clogged the machine senses that the pump has not completed pumping out and will not allow it to spin. Sometimes it won't allow a spin at all, sometimes it will spin but only slowly. To see if this is your issue, pull the flexible drain hose out just a bit so you can watch the flow and use the drain and spin cycle. The flow should resemble a garden hose. Access to the filter via the lower front face, remove 3 screws at base of the machine - the front lower cover comes off. The filter toward the right side, about 2.5 inches in diameter - turn counter clockwise about 3 turns the filter tray will come out.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

Hopefully the info below will supply you with the assistance to get the door open for now at least...and a little more with some luck.

The door typically locks as a result of the unit failing to drain, also the E13 kind of one in the same...usually.

**Unplug the washer from the wall or turn off the breaker before attempting any repairs**

  1. Locate the round door on the front of the machine (about 6" in diameter, lower right corner) macmarkus_26.jpg
  2. Find a drill bit or small screwdriver that fits in the hole in the round door.


3. Insert the bit into the hole in the door. It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force. Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free. (the edges are very sharp so be careful).

4. Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand or with the aid of pliers.


**NOTE - you should also see a ring attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if present is usually a good plan


Once the door is open and you've removed the items you wanted. Unplug the washer for 20minutes or so ( or short the the cord that plugs in the wall...while it's unplugged, to discharge the capacitor thus clearing the memory in the control ) and then plug it in again, to see if the control "resets".

**It's possible the pump has failed or the check ball/back flow is obstructed or "gummed up" but you'll need to try these things fist as the later is a little (or a lot, depends on ones ability) involved to address. Yellow arrow...disregard the orange arrow**


Let me know if you require further assistance and if not and this solves your problem, please rate the solution I provided accordingly.

Thank you for coming to "FixYa" and good luck.

First disconnect power by tripping circuit breaker or disconnecting power cord. While power is off access the hose connected to drain pump. The pump assembly is mounted to the right rear of the base. With power not connected undo hose from pump, collect water and remove blockage, fit the pump back. See page 63, section six in the manual below:

It could be the heating element is at fault not heating to the selected temperature 95 degrees 40, 30,and so on, if one of these fail to work then the washer will not continue
also maybe the thermostat may be at fault, causing the same error

GE Front Load washer shakes whenever any type of load is put in. GE service has been out at least 4 times and say that its fine..perfectly level, etc

All front loaders shake to some extent. It depends on the balance of the load. It is especially evident in the spin cycle due to the high speeds. Also these machines are best placed on a solid cement floor. They can shake an entire house if on the first or second floor and the floors are not well reinforced.

Stopped working mid cycle. The timer still counts down but does not fill, agitate, spin, drain. And before it stopped, the water that was draining out smelled really bad.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use quite hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.

My ge front loader washer will not drain

We had same problem. The pump was all clogged up with fabric debris, and a part of a metal bra liner. I removed the pump and cleaned it out. Now it seems to work fine, and went through a complete cycle. Ther pump was accessed from the front, and was not too hard to remove.

Walking during the spin cycle

Try placing it on a rubber mat or carpet that has a rubber backing. The floor may be too smooth and allows it to walk.
