The pump will actually withstand the freezing, but to play it safe, just lay the drain hose down flat on the floor and allow the water to run out.

I have had this problem with two of my previous washers a top loader and front loader.Each time it was a faulty pump that drains the water from the tub after the wash cycle is complete. If the water does not drain from the tub the machine will not go to the spin cycle. Both of my washers were 5 or 6 years old when this occurred. If the washer is only 5 months old it should be under the manufactures warranty. Good Luck.

My GE WBSR3140D0WW top load washer fills, agitates but won't drain or spin


2 Possibilities. You have a failed drain pump, or the most likely, you have a clogged or obstructed pump or pump hose. it will n ot spin unitl the water level has reached a certain point. I have found socks in these. You will need to remove the front cover, slip a putty knife between the front cover and the top deck on the left and right side, push and at the same time pull the cover back. the drain pump is on the right side of the washer. If the pump sounds like its humming but not turning, there is something on the pump. If it sounds like its running, but no water being pumped out, then there is most likely an article of clothing stuck in the hose.

GE Profile top load washer purchased 2003 water comes out from under washer when spin and drain cycle on. this not mentioned in trouble shooting area. think it is water pump or whatelse can it be?


It has to be in the water exit path somewhere - is there a pump sump inspection? Is there a hose split? Likely the drain hose, or where it connects to the machine. Has the pump split open? Can you remove the machine cover and inspect it while it is doing a cycle so you can see where the water is coming from?

GE WJSR2050T2WW Washer fills up,Spins but won't drain out?


The most common reason for no pump out is a blockage in the pump. Best to drain as much water as possible. (even laying the drain hose down to allow as much of the water to drain out as possible) Un-plug washer. Next, open the front of the washer by using a putty knife to push in and release the clips about two inches in from each side at the seam where the front panel meets the washer top. Pull the front panel forward and lift it off the bottom pegs. Remove spring clamps from inlet and outlet of pump with a plier. Remove two pump mounting screws to allow pump removal after unplugging electrical leads. Remove obstruction from pump. Most pump bodies can be separated if necessary. Reassemble, plug back in and test.

Makes a grnding sound when washing(not always) & does not spin all the water


This problem happen to me a few months back--washer was 6 months old. A technician came out and told me that I must have loaded the washer after the water was in the tub. He stated that I must load my washer prior to running the water in because the water fill amount is based on weight; therefore it was now weighing too much. Go figure...have always loaded the washer with water first and clothes last. I always put clothes in first then the water--I must say, the problem has not reappear.

Hope this helps.

you have to take out the little motor that drains the water and clean it up , first you open the front panel or back panel depending of the model , second follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its attached to the DRAIN MOTOR , remove the motor for cleaning , its probably clogged.
