Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My GE washer is stuck on spin only and will not run cycle and will therefore not fill with water. This has happened before and I was told I just needed to reprogram it. This basically involved turning the knob/dial X amount of clicks to the right and Y amount to the left I think. Except I can't remember how many. Anybody know? Machine model WHDSE 82 OCWW Serial # VD1 44 08 OG Thanks Norma

Try just spinning the dial about four times in each direction and see if that works first

    the dial doesn't seem to be clicking to the next stage, may I suggest taking off the outside panel and checking this dial. When you spin it, does it click still? If you turn it to a different cycle does it change anything? let me know

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.

No water no Spin


Check your 2 in 3 out water valve part# WH13X10029, this responsible for filling of water. By the way wash cycle will not run, until washer sense enough water.

Washer will fill but it does not stop


Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.

My GE washing machine drains the water after the rinse cycle but does not start spinning. It just sits with the water pump running and does nothing. This doesn't happen with every load but seems to be...


Most likely the tube from the tub to the water level switch is full of "gunk" so the washer still thinks there is water in the machine, and therefore will not spin. Take the front panel off by pushing in the retaining clips at the top seam between the front panel and the washer top. Pull the thin hose off the left side of the tub and clean it out. (or cut off an inch or so, but you can only get away with that once or twice). To help prevent re-occurance, every two or three months you can fill the washer to the lowest level with hot water and several cups of bleach (no clothes) and run it through a cycle. Rinse at the ex-large setting to make sure all traces of bleach are gone before doing another load of laundry.

GE Top Load Washer WLSR2000G3WW~smells like burning and wont drain


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.

The cycle doesn't advance 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.

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.
