HI,

The washer won't drain:

WARNINGS:

  • Unplug the washing machine while you are working on it to prevent injury from electrocution
  • Be prepared for water spilling on the floor.
Method:
There could be two problems...The drain could be clogged, or the water pump could be bad. Or the belt that runs the pump is sliping or broken.

  1. Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.
  2. Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
  3. Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
  4. If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.
  5. Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.
  6. Reassemble hose from step 3.
  7. Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.
  8. Reassemble washing machine case...you're done...
The washer won't spin:

WRNINGS:
UNPLUGG THE WASHING MACHINE FIRST

METHOD:

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.

Goodluck,

I have a g.e. washer model wjsr2080t6ww and it is leaking water from underneath


There are 4 common possiblities. 1. Hose from tub to pump has a hole in it
2. Water pump is leaking
3. tub seal has gone bad
4. Water fill manifold has a hole in it

1,2,4 is an easy fix
3 requires removal of the inner tub (not an easy job)

GE washer will not go to spin cycle or drain.


Possible lid switch not fully engaged. It will no drain or spin if lid switch is not fully engaged. I would also check the drain line for pluggage.

Sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump, maybe a sock. Remove the front panel by sticking a small screwdriver or putty knife just above the front panel to release 2 clips. Drain pump is located bottom right with 2 hoses connected to it. Drain the machine and remove the hoses. Check for obstructions.

Washer machine problem


The problem was two out of three broken spider arms. Shame shame on GE for using Frigidare parts and using aluminum for a washer part in the fist place, also not listing the matinance needed to clean the filter in their manual. So they can come clean it for you, at a cost of $69.00? Seems so. And refushing to sell the broken part separate from the drum. Though the part itself was under warranty we had to pay for the labor of a poorly manufactured part that is a well known issue. See (Why Kenmore front load washers fail) on You Tube. There is a nice video of the spider arm SCAM!!!!!! We need to speak out together or the problem will continue.
