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.

Washer motor humms and won't spin after filing up with water


remove the water pump from the motor but not from the hoses and start the washer. if it starts then you have a sock or something caught inside the pump holding the motor. remove the object or replace the pump if needed. if the motor wont start then unplug the washer,remove the motor and turn by hand. if it feels hard replace motor. if it moves then leave motor out and move the gear case where the motor connects by hand. if it wont move then 2 things may happen. 1)gear case lockup or a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

if the washer agitates but wont spin with the humming sound then I say the later. a piece of clothing caught between the tubs.

The machine will not spinn, the washing is very wet when finnished washing


clothes are wet after spinning this is due to faulty Motor coupler. test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.If not then the coupler is broken.It has to be replaced;.This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely. ----------------------- If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Thanks.

Frigidaire Washer Model #WILL-1 - won't spin or pump out water


Can you access the location of you motor?

try to open the back and unscrew the cover and see if you can see the motor, try to start it but don't get near to much just enought to see if it is moving or not.

if it still running and rotating see the belt maybe it is too loose or maybe it is to tight,

But if it just humming, turn it off and unplug, see if you can rotate the motor with your hand, if you can then you'll need a starting capacitor, you got to buy one and install.

But if it is hard to turn even without a load, then you'll need to bring your motor to a service center to check for the bushing and shafting and lubrication.

your motor winding is still ok since you heard a humming sound, that problem would be the mechanical part.

Kenmore front load washer will not spin. Clothes come out wet.


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Machine starts but after one minute it just hums


Something is locking down the aggitator. The motor will burn up if you keep trying to run it while it is unable to turn so please un jam it then try it again.

Frigidaire LTF2940ES Hums


Sounds like the belt may be off. Was it moved with the shipping braces out? It may have caused some internar damage. You might check to see if the hum is coming from the door lock area. If the lock is out it won't let drain or spin.
