Question about General Electric WSSH300G Front Load Washer

Open Question

My GE Washer WSSH300G0WW was leaving my clothes all wet. I found my water pump filter was clogged, so I cleaned it. My clothes are still wet, even though water is draing fine. My machine will not go into the spin cycle. It tumbles for 3mins and then turns itself off and the door unlocks as if finished. How can I fix this. I not sure if the spin cycle broke from being over loaded by the water wait from when the pump was clogged. please help? Thank you.

SOURCE: spin cycle leaves clothes very wet

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

SOURCE: the spin cycle will not work. I think the drain is clogged and would like to figure out how to unclog the drain

If you unscrew the bottom front kick plate there is a black rubber piece to the right in front. In order to get to the filter make sure the washer has no water in it or it will spill all over the floor. The black rubber piece houses the filter. You need a phillips screwdriver to unscrew the clamp at the top of the black rubber piece. Once that is unscrewed you can pull it down and you'll see a white plastic filter inside. It is most likely clogged so it won't drain. When it is cleared it will work again. It is pretty easy but can be messy if there is water still in the drum. Just make sure that you put the rubber gasket back on with the clamp tightened.

My machine is not draining properly GE WSSH300G0WW front load washer


Hello,

Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Take care.

I have an asko quattro front loader washing machine it wont spin out properly leaving my clothes wringing wet can you help?


Hi, Welcome to FixYa. Have you checked the pump to insure the filter isn't clogged, or do you know where it is and how to check it ? If its clogged it won't allow the clothes to spin out enough due to water extraction being prevented. The insert/filter is located on most Asko washer below the main basket door behind a toe panel or square access door. Once found, turn it counter-clockwise to remove it and clean inside thoroughly. Let me know how you do or if you don't understand or even needing more assistance. Thanks for choosing Fixya and good luck. Regards, Macmarkus :)

My washer will not start!!


Does the start/pause button flash and then the door unlocks? I had that problem too. This is what I did. I found the solution to clean the lint filter on the GE Adora. Go to http://www.instructables.com/id/GE-Adora-Lint-Filter-Cleanout/?download=pdf

I just did this and my washer is now running instead of the flashing start/pause and door unlocking. It was fairly easy. Make sure you have towels and a flat pan to catch the water if you don't have the machine on a riser. There may be water inside so a wet vac may be helpful too. Once my washer finishes what was in it, I have these funky towels to clean. You'll be very surprised what you find in the filter! Best of luck!

Smelly washer


I found out the hard way. The GE WCVH6260 fron loading washing machine has a terrible design flaw. There is a 'filter' that sits right in front of the discharge pump. This filter clogs with lint, coins, hair, dollar bills ... etc about every 3-4 months. When it 'clogs', the pump cannot '****' the dirty water through the gunk. As a result, you have nasty, stale water (forever) preventing dirty water from being flushed. What's worse is that since the dirty water cannot leave, you wind up washing/rinsing your 'clean' clothes with dirty water. It is easy to fix.

When looking at the front of your washing machine, there is a rectangular panel at the bottom. Remove the 3 screws (left, right and center) and pull down on the panel. It slides off easy. Right in front of you is a 3" cap. MAKE SURE TO HAVE A LARGE POT TO CATCH THE SLOP BEFORE YOU LOOSEN THE CAP. Remove the cap and pull out. (I took out 'gunk' the size of a tube of racket balls (coins, hair, dollar bills .. etc). You will also see/smell what I mean by 'dirty water'

GE is a bunch of idiots. We have only had our machine 12 months. This is obviously 'regular maintenance' kind of stuff (kind of like periodically cleaning the lint filter on the washing machine) and GE doesn't even make the 3" cap accessible from the outside. I checked the manual and these problems are not even FAQ's in the manual:
* machine 'pauses' between every cycle (push start to continue)
* clothes smell musty
* water doesn't drain
* cycles (consistently) take longer than timer says
* clothes still soaking wet even after spin cycle ... etc)
