Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
This is due to the drain pump being clogged
The drain plug is on the front of this washer - you can see it without removing anything - there is a small 5"x3" panel on the front bottom that you pull out and then the plug twists free - have a large pan ready and unsrew slowly - water will come gushing out - have towels at the ready!
There are 2 screws on the bottom of the larger bottom front panel - remove these and you can see inside
you will see the drain plug housing is connected to the water pump and there are two hoses connected to the housing and the pump one coming from the washer to the drain plug and one going from the pump to your drain.
Remove the hoses carefully - I used plyers to pinch the clamps together.
the hardest part of this is removing the drain plug housing and pump - because it seems like you should be able to just remove the pump - but you can not!!
There are two screws holding in the housing and pump - remove them and the whole thing pulls clear.
Once out you can make sure there is not more coins or **** in the thing. Three screws hold the housing to the pump - mark these with a sharpie before you remove them - because once it is off there are multiple ways to re attach it.
Once free of the drain plug housing spin the pump a few times and put it all back together -
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike
