Check your hoses for obstructions, but it sounds like your inlet valve is bad.

MY GE front loader washer won't fill with water or spin. I hear a hum when I turn it on and it sounds as if it's about to start a cycle but nothing happens.


It sounds as if your water valve is either clogged or the solenoid is stuck and not letting any water in. Here is a checklist of things you should do to help isolate the problem:
1) check to make sure the water is on
2) turn the water off and remove the water lines and verify that both the lines and the screens on the valve are clear of debris, calcium, etc.
3) take the top off the machine where you can actually see the valve, turn the machine on and see if the vavle is the humming noise that you are hearing. If so and no water is coming out then the valve is bad.

My washer initial had a rinse cycle problem where no rinsing occur after washing, now it spreads to the wash cycle where it is pausing at the this cycle, need urgent advice


The problem is you are not getting cold water fill. (rinse is all cold water fill) Check to see if the inlet screen is plugged by turning valve off that supplies cold to the hose attached to the machine, then removing the hose at the machine and checking the filter inside the water valve where the hose was just removed from. If screen is not blocked, replace water valve.

Washer seems to not cycle or take in any water. Is there a reset switch or button


If you hear a hum check the cold water inlet screen . If no hum check the valve or try hot water . If works replace fill valve.

Do I need 2" drain for frontload washer?


not nessarily if your draining system can handle a non-efficent washer the old top load style drain 42.3 gal of water evey time it fills and for a complete cyc on the h-3 washer only 14 for a complete cyc. When the unit is in the high spin all of the water is already drained and what little water is spun out of the clothing in nothitng to worry about

Push down on the agitator. You may have to hold the activating button in with the lid up so you can do this. Press down firmly on the agitator and it should start rotating. If it does, you need to have it replaced. If it doesn't, then let the store know and they should take care of it. You should not put any money into since it is new. Anything you do from this point will cost you some money to fix.

Washer won't fill with hot water


If you hear a humming, the coil on the water valve is probably OK. On warm, you are getting cold fill only. (hot + cold = warm) Take the hot water supply hose off the machine and look inside where the hose attached to the washer. There should be a screen inside. Remove it and clean it out. Also, check both ends of the supply hose, as sometimes you will find a screened washer in there too.
