Question about GE WSM2700W Unitized Spacemaker Washer and Dryer
My washer does not drain the water. It does do the spinning but when its time to drain it does not do anything. Could this be a plumbing issue or machine? Please help.
This is most likely the machine... if a machine is loaded real full, small articles of clothing can get spun out of the inner perforated tub and into the outer tub. That's where the drain line connects to the pump. Small socks and other small clothes block the drain line (allowing the machine to spin but not drain).
If you feel up to the challenge of pulling the front panel and the top off the machine you can check for articles in the outer tub by "fishing" with a piece of coat hanger wire with a small hook bent on the end...
Also check IN the pump because sometimes the pump will "**** a sock" into it and block water drainage....
If the house plumbing is blocked, the machine will be pumping water out the drain hose and the stand pipe will back up and you'll get water on the floor or in the catch pan....
So it sounds like theres a blockage in the machine tub or pump.
I rate this type of fix about a 3 on a 1to5 scale of difficulty ... not too difficult but you need a little ability to pull it off. Good Luck on this.. let me know if you "catch" anything.

Machine - either the filter between the drain pump and exit to waste pipe is blocked - extract, clean & replace or the pump has failed. It may be going round [u can see this underneath the rear and hear it ] & if so then the impeller blades in the pump are worn out - renew pump

Your pump could be shot in your washer. you can remove the hose coming out of your washer in back and see if water is being discharged as it spins...nothing coming out..need new pump. but if does come out check plumbing drain for plugs

THE FILTER IS CLOGGED OR THE DISCHARGE PUMP OR LINE IS NOT WORKING, UNDER THE UNIT WHERE THE HOSE IS ATTACHED, TAKE THE HOSE OFF IF THE WATER COMES OUT THE PUMP IS NOT WORKING IF IT DOES NOT COME OUT THE FILTER OR LINE IS CLOGGED

Its the machine. If it was a plumbing problem you would have water all over the floor. Try this, When its time to drain Lift the lid, then lower it back to the closed position if it drains, the problem is either the timer or the transmission and pump. I had one that would not drain unless I lifted the lid. I replaced the timer $75.00 and it did not fix the problem. I finally replaced the machine.

if it's running (making noise) but not moving it's the coupling between the motor and trans$13.00 part if it is just sitting there quiet it's probly the lid switch is broken this only applies to top loaders
