When a washer is taking to long this is mainly due to accesive water inside the tub you need to check the pump to assure that there is nothing blocking the pump and the drain line that goes out the back of your machine if you are able to view the water draining out the back of the machine observe the flow of water that is leaving your unit if the flow is not as it should be check the pump to see if anything is clogged on the inside of the pump I personally have been to a customers house and have pulled out in one instance 80.00 in change also when you check the pump area assure that the impellar on the pump is functioning if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks Rick

Machine stopped in mid cycle with the drain/unlocking light on. No error codes. Machine goes directly to the drain/unlocking position after start. Will not fill, spin, operate. Any ideas?

When i turn on my washing maschine it takes in water as normal but when its time for it to spin it does nothing so it trys to take in more water and the same thing happens again then it turns it sel*** and...


you have to check the water level sensor, included to check the small hose from the drum to the water level sensor. there must be pressure from the water to suppress these sensors, the operation of the washing machine are:
washing process / cycles will start when the water level, which we set is reached. then there is pressure from the water through a hose, pressure water level sensor.

while SPIN is the reverse process of the washing process, water in the drums will be drained through the drain valve. and there is no pressure in the water level sensor so that the spin will start.

Can I reprogram a front load GE washer so I can add a drain and spin cycle that this machine does not have?.Sometimes my clothes come out too wet and it would be nice to spin and drain them again without...


just add another drain and spin cycle and start it up again with the completion of the first cycle. Washing some items like sleeping bags takes forever because they are so darned absorbent and hold more water than a tiger's sieve of a bladder. Another drain and spin cycle should solve the problem.

Won't spin after wash cycle or rinse cycle


CHECK THE FOLLOWING---


1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Wash cycle timing is way off.


Well, 1-1/2 hrs is normal for your washer. All front load washers take a long time. They wash a lot better than top loaders....

 If it takes more time for drain or something , than it might be a concern............


However, to be on a safer side :) Lets troubleshoot
I would start by removing the hose off the pump that goes to the back wall of the washer and blow through it to make sure there are no obstructions. Also check the other hose from the tub to the pump. If there is, find and clear it. If not, read on. We need to make sure the transmission is working properly before going any further. When operating properly, this washer should drain all excess water (full load setting) in less than 180 seconds. That is the maximum neutral drain time for this particular washer. If you start the machine on a normal cycle with a 10 minute minimum agitate time, the transmission should not spin when it begins to drain. It is very important that you not disrupt the machine during this test, so use a small screwdriver to "trick" the lid switch, so you can have the lid open to see if it spins. If it doesn't spin while draining, then the transmission is okay. If it does begin spinning and draining at the same time, immediately reset for another 10 minutes of agitate and try again. You may have to run this test 1-5 times for an accurate neutral drain test. The most common failure of these transmissions is neutral drain failure. As I stated before, if the unit is spinning and draining at the same time, it won't be able to get rid of the water in time because the resistance of the tub trying to spin will slow down the motor which, in turn, slows down the pump. If the transmission doesn't spin while draining, see how long it takes to expell all the water; it should be less than 180 seconds. If it takes longer than that, there is some kind of restriction in the drain system. Anything from a kinked hose to a sock in the hose, or even a restricted house drain when the washer drain hose is sealed to the standpipe. If your washer drains to a floor drain, there should also be a siphon break in the drain line that may be bad or plugged. Let me know if you have further questions.


Thanks.
