Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

if you dont have one in the front under the lid your model comes with a slip on filter that goes on top of the aggitator you schouldnt run it without it because ge pumps have a tendacy to freeze up with the lint from your clothes especcially levis hope this helps

SOURCE: i cant find my filter
It is either behind the kick plate at the front or in the pipe on the bottom of the drum which runs to the pump.
This is acessed by removing the panel at the back.
Hope this helps & thankyou for using Fixya.
