Question about GE Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a moffat front load washer, model number MCCH6110HWW, during wash last week it tripped the breaker a few times, but could complete the cycle when I reset the breaker. THis weekend, I tried to do laundry again, but it keeps kicking the breaker on any wash cycle, even on the cold cycle (thought it might be the heater causing issue). I put it onto drain and spin, machine drains and then goes into spin, but when it reaches high speed spin, it kicks the breaker again. Could this be the main board? . Is this correct: Yes

SOURCE: Spin/Drain cycle...Kenmore 417.40042990 Front load belt drive washer.

ok two companies make kenmore you have a frigidaire model i gave you instructions for whirlpool heres frigidaire I think your on the right track but a couple of things you need to know first that model washer wont spin tiny loads or one articles of clothing it has a device in the motor called a tacho generator to balance if you have only a small load it cant sense the balance and most of the time will only rock back and forth second your pump is the most likely culprit if you look in side the washer you will see a seem in the tub next to that will be one of the washer tumblers take the screws out of that tumbler slide it forward there will be a hole there rotate the tub to your right and you will find the hole going down to the drain pump can check it there but i don't think you'll find any thing as that is a larger hole it think your drain pump is now if you have a shop vac this is time to vacuum the water of the tub and all the way down the drain hole for the next stage usally i tell customers to remove the drain hose from the stand pipe and vacuum the water out of the washer from the drain hose but because of the pillow this might not work in your case. Now remove the two screws on the front lower panel and pull the panel
in side you will see the drain pump if you did not have a shop vac go to the auto parts store and buy a pair of radiator hose clamps and clamp the hose line as close to the washer as possible.(but put down some towels as water always stays there) then pull the tub to pump hose by depressing the squeeze clamp(now while your at the auto parts id get a screw clamp to replace the spring clamp it makes putting the hose back on a lot easier)pull the hose off.Then pull the pump to drain hose off .Remove the two 5/16 in screws securing the pump to the washer base.Unplug the connector and remove the pump inspect the pump for foreign objects,broken or stripped impeller blades . if the impeller are stripped you will have to replace the pump then form the front of the washer take your finger and feel up in the large rubber hose for any thing in there the drain pump should turn pretty freely if nothing is restricting it

SOURCE: Zanussi ZWD1680W Front Load All-in-One... Problem:

With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.

SOURCE: I have a Kenmoer front load washing machine that doesn't spin.

You have an issue with your off balance detection program.

The problem could be at the motor control unit (MCU) or the central control unit (CCU). The quickest, easiest and least expensive one to replace is the MCU.

Take off the front access panel (at the bottom, held on with three screws). The MCU is located on the left hand side. It looks like a white (or off-white depending on the age) box.

Open the plastic flap on the front of it, and disconnect all the quick connects (make sure you mark them so they go back in the same spots).

To remove the MCU from the bottom of the cabinet, there is a locking tab on the front tab. Lift that, and slide the whole unit forward.

To replace, do these steps in the reverse order.

Good luck!

SOURCE: ATF6000ES front load washer won't spin during regular cycle.

clogged filter will cause this error code. I have the same washer and the filter located inside the rubber boot attached to the pump was full of junk. there was enough room for water to get thru but not enough for full volume. clean it out and it should work. note : its a pain to get the boot back on so be ready and take it slow. this worked for me.

No spin cycle


Suspect there is heavy load in the spin cycle which makes it trip off. You need to check the free movement of the drum and also the motor.

Sounds like your drum brake is engaging. Fixing it is fairly cheap. YouTube it and watch a few videos on how to do it if your fairly handy.

Washer keeps blowing fuses


Do you mean the houses circuit breaker? If so, WHEN in the cycle does it blow the circuit breaker? WHEN it trips will tell you what to look at. I.E. If the circuit breaker trips during the fill cycle then it would be the walter inlet valve or the timer in the control panel; if it trips as soon as it is in the agitator cycle - then the motor or transmission; if it trips in the spin cycle - then the drain pump or transmission or control panel.

Why does my washing machine trip the electric


run the machine, after it trips, unplug and carefully touch the motor,it may have a bad capacitor, or dry bearings causing it to draw excessive current,if these 2 things are not it, then look for a bare wire that may be touching case during this part of the cycle,and if you can get an "Amprobe" it reads current and check machines current draw during the start to trip current
