Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer will not start and is making a buzzing sound.

After starting a load of clothes, I just noticed the washer just humming like the motor was on, but nothing was moving. Everything is wet, so I figure that it was working a little while ago. Now the Door Locked light is on, but the door is unlocked. It will not run at all now. Just makes a buzzing sound every few seconds when I hit the start button. I unplugged it, but nothing is happening. All the features are llit up, but the door will not lock.

Did the belt fall off in the back of the washer. Mine was overlaoded and the belt came off somehow- it went back on fine.

My Kenmore HE2 front load washer when I go to start a load of clothes it's making a humming sound and not filling up with water?


Either one of your water valves isn't working properly, or the lines have sediment restricting the volume of water . What I would do is turn the water to the machine off and remove the water lines and make sure they aren't filled will calcium, etc. and look in the water valves where the hoses connect because that are, which has a screen, may be full of nastiness. If both those are good then the water valve solenoid(s) are stuck and won't open. The humming sound you hear lets you know the rest of the machine is working because the sound is generated by power being applied to the valve by the control.

Washer filled w water but wont agitate,spin or drain. I hear a humming,buzzing and something smells like it is burning. After several attempts to start in various different cyles it may have tripped...


send the model number.if it's humming it sounds like the motor is bad.where.if it resets after a while and hums again it's the motor.there's an overload in the motor,when it gets to hot it pops and will reset after it cools.

Your motor has failed.
Remove it from the washer to have it repaired or replaced.

Humming or buzzing during wash and spin cycles.


it's the motor that makes the humming sound..it may have difficulty in starting..when starting like this the motor draws more current and this may cause the windings to burn out..try reducing the load..if the sound disappears then indeed the capacity of the motor is deteriorating...take out motor and clean bushing and lubricate.. also realign belt ..

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

Motor is humming loudly.


Motors hum, and your right, it could be no worse than normal.

I would be suspect that there is a gear stripped in the gearcase, since this is a direct drive washing machine.

Reassemble the motor back onto the washer. Run it through a cycle manually (rotate the timer by hand) until the motor turns, then look to see if it's turning. If it is, or even more so, if it pumps water out of the tub, then it is probably the stripped out gearcase.

Reply with you findings and more advice.

I have the same problem. The water drains, but I have no spin leaving the clothes soaked. I get a humming sound and thats it. The rest of the washer works fine. Any help would be great.

Sound after washer fills up


It sound like you may have a bad capacitor. Just like a standing fan the motor uses a capacitor to boost the current to the starting coil to get the motor in motion. This causes the motor to hum and not spin. Hope this helped. Rudy
