WHY WONT MY GENERAL ELECTRIC MODLE #WCXH208VOWW SPIN


Hi Darryl

Usually won't spin until water is drained to a low level.

Wont drain possibly because of blockage or pump blocked or stuck. (A Common Problem in Washing Machines)

So... As for further Troubleshooting
Process of elimination.
Where is Time Wheel set and what does it require to advanced to next stage.

Think of it as a Rotating Timer Switch stopping at each stage to check conditions.
The stages are controlled by sensors like "High Water Level"
The Sensor could be a simple Float Switch... eg. "High Water"

If water is High... Dont allow door to open and don't allow spin.
But do allow Pump to run.
It's all Plain Logic like used in computers (If, Then, Else)

My 21882 top load Kenmore washer will start the cycle but stops after filling up; i can restart the cycle by pushing the knob in and going a little further in the cycle then starting again. But after a...


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Top loader series 80 Kenmore doesn't stop after the whole wash cycle, it goes directly to 2nd rinse, then spins again and stops?


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    Since it does everything else, the problem points to the timer.

    See the following Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and service manual for top load, direct drive washers with an extensive troubleshooting section.

    Washer fills up but doesnt start washing


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

    The first thing I'd do is see if the washer will continue it's cycle in a different mode. i.e. Try to start it in a different cycle, or try to move the timer knob to the spin cycle.

    Following is a Whirlpool / Kenmore installation and maintenance PDF on how top load, direct drive washers work.

    It has a troubleshooting section as well as detailed descriptions of how this type of washer works.

    My kennmore 70 series top load washer fills with water but once full will not perform any other functions and when it stops it will not start again until i have drained all the water.


    This assumes that it is a basic top load, direct drive, neutral drain machine.

    When you say that "once full will not perform any other functions and when it stops..." Do you mean that the timer goes through it's cycle but the machine doesn't agitate or spin?

    If the timer runs, the problem points to the motor itself.

    Following is a Whirlpool installation and maintenance manual with a troubleshooting guide and how to test the timer.

    If you need to tear the machine down, please see GURU JSROCK516 Description of how to remove cabinet and access the transmission.

    Kenmore 110 Spin Cycle


    Assuming that this is a basic top load, direct drive, neutral drain washer it seems as if the problem is likely in the timer.

    The transmission and draining are controlled by the motor which gets it's power through the timer. If the timer isn't advancing once it gets to the spin cycle area, the motor keeps getting power, the machine keeps spinning and only by pushing in the control knob will the motor stop.

    Here are a couple of places to look at how the machine works and parts for a basic Kenmore washer.

    Sears parts site:

    http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

    Enter your model number and you'll see a number of sub catagories for the washer components.

    Whirlpool Installation and maintenance PDF.

    This is a public domain Whirlpool manual describing how the washer works and a good troubleshooting section.

    HELP!! Washer machine wont work. Doesnt drain or spin. Clicks to drain and spin but nothing happens, the timer still counts down as if everything is fine.


    This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

    If the machine starts, fills and goes through its' agitate cycle fine, the problem is likely not in the motor or transmission.

    This type of washer uses a reversible motor. When turning one way, the machine agitates the clothes.

    When the timer gets to the spin cycle, the motor reverses, drives the pump (directly from the motor) for a period of time and then goes into spin cycle.

    This appears then that is is either the connection to the motor itself or the timer.

    The timer is driven by a separate motor on the control panel so if the contacts for the spin cycle are worn, the timer will move but the motor won't turn on.

    Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts


    Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
