Question about GE Spacemaker WSLP1100D Top Load Washer
Wash cycle performs normally but washer will not drain. Drain pump simply does not activate at the appropriate place in the cycle. I've tried cycling the control knob through all the available cycles / wash modes but cannot get the pump to activate. Agitator filter is clean; drain hoses are normal and clear. Seems like I've got a bad pump or is there some kind of float switch that must be activated in order for the drain pump to work? Also, if it's the pump can I get to it easily and replace it myself?
SOURCE: washer make a clicking noise
Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin
this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

SOURCE: timer switch on GE washer
You don't state your exact model number, and the number off the timer is not the actual part number (it's some sort of part stamping number). Most likely what has happened is a plastic tab on the timer housing (which normally goes into a slot in the metal, and thus holds the timer at that point) has broken off. The fix is to replace the timer, but instead of buying a new timer, I usually fashion a Z type piece of metal which I can put one screw though into the metal and the other side holding the timer against the metal. Takes a little work, but it's a lot cheaper than a new timer.
If you want to take the timer knob off, you have to pull it out and use a thin tool, like a small screwdriver, to push the plastic clip off the shaft behind the knob, allowing the knob to then come off the shaft. Push the clip back on the knob when off, so that all you have to do to reinstall the knob is push it on and it will lock on the shaft again.

possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors
due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program
controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN
pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from
the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the
water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the
voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no
voltage from the controller. This means
the controller is a suspect.
water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the
inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the
inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL
SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level
to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is
most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must
be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for
rinse and wash.
link to replace the inlet valve:
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Welcome to FixYa
When the unit
is unable to drain it will not even work in spin cycle, the problem is with
blocked drain/drain pump filter which should be cleaned. If after cleaning the
problem comes back then the drain pump needs replacement. Please get back to me
if you have any other questions.
