    I cleaned the filter, but it still will not spin. The door lock keeps going on and off as it cycles and the washer never fully spins. I completely cleaned the filter. Is there anything else to inspect?

I see this is an old post, but if someelse has this problem I hope this helps. I had this same problem.
My GE front load washer (GBVH6260) has a filter located behind the front cover below the door. My manual makes no mention of this filter no is it obvious. Remove the three screws located at the bottom of the cover below the washer door, and remove the cover. You will see a what looks like a knob. This is the filter. Be sure to place a pan under it as best you can. If your washer is holding water be prepared you could get over a gallon, have some towels ready. Unscrew the filter and slide it out, it slides in the same way.

My machine is not draining properly GE WSSH300G0WW front load washer


Hello,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Take care.

Ge adora front load washer not draining


I had the same problem with mine. would figure you have it fixed by now, but it is your pump. I had a childs sock get PAST the lint filter and jam my pump. but it does not take long for the pump to go bad once something has gotten into it. Somewhat of an easy fix, if your a do-it-yourselfer

GE washer not draining


You should have one. Get down low, and look at the kickplate. You should see screws just below the main front panel of the machine.

NOT DRAINING


means your pump is blocked. Apperently there is no main filter according to the book .
It means you will have to open the machine and disconnect the hose from the pump and clean the pump. ( i presume the pump works?)
make sure you try to drain as much of the water by putting the drainhose low into a bucket or basin.
let me know what happened
