GE Front Loader Washer

My washer will fill but will not spin at all, I can hear a hum noise, like the motor is running and the belt is fine. What is my problem please or some ideas to check?
I also have a leak when it goes into final rinse. Any idea to a solution for this?

SOURCE: Ge prodigy wpse4270aoww won't rinse or spin

if basket wont spin, remove front hatch by inserting spackel knife to trip spring latch on both sides,then check the belt for wear & tear.factory length is 29.5 " time will stretch them out, resulting in broken belt.check behind control panel hatch for diagram of machine for exact location of belt also can be downloaded online.
I hope this helps.ie overloading machine will shorten belt life.

Why does my kenmore washer 110 fill with water but won't wash or spin?


Do you happen to hear a humming noise coming from the machine after the tub fills? This might indicate that the motor is spinning, but the belt that connects the motor to the rest of the machine works is broken. It is located underneath the washer. Tip the washer a bit and have a look. If it's broken, you'll probably find the belt laying on the floor. Take that to an appliance parts store where they can match it up with a new one. Installation is not too difficult. The belt will go around the motor pulley, the transmission pulley, the water pump, and in some cases, a spring-loaded tensioner. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

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 spin - agitate


Hi,

You just do this

  • Test the lid switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drover belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission
  • Inspect the Agitator
  • Inspect the pump coupling
  • Test the Water switch level
Good luck !!!

Does not agitate or spin


Let me make sure I hear your symtoms right..

The washer fills...sound like the motor is running but it doesn't agitate or spin.. then when it tries to drain it bascially gravity feeds out until there is no longer enough water to force it out?

Sounds like the belt is off, or broken.. I am not all that familiar with your model, but I think most GE's are belt drive.

If it were the agitator coupler, the washer would probably still drain..

Pull the front cover off of the washer, you will see the belt and pulleys, make sure it is A: still on the pulleys, and B: tight.

If not, loosen the four bolts on the moter, put the belt on and then slide the motor towards the rear to tighten it.. then tighten the four bolts. They may simply have not tightened the bolts on the motor from factory and the motor slid back loosening the drive belt.

GOOD LUCK!!!

TOP LOADER KENMORE WASHER FILLS UP BUT DOES NOTHING ELSE.


Sounds like belt is broken. Open front cover and look at belt, if broke replace. If not broke try unplugging for 2 minutes, plug back in then open and close lid 7 times slowly, this should reset the electronic motor.
