The unit has 2 motors the one that turns the drum and the one that drains the water. If the door is not latching properly the unit can drain but for safety reasons it will not spin. That being said your GE washer was actually produced by frigidaire and although the door lock assy for the GE part #WH10X10003 retails for $159.66 the frigidaire door lock assy retails for $74.49 and is an exact match. So either your repairman does not know he can buy the same part for a lesser price, or he really wants to make some money. Either way the part is not to hard to install if you need help.

Frigidaire CRTR9300ASO won't spin replaced door latch switch and still does not work


Hi bitemejohne - Often when a unit does not spin, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. Since you have already replaced the door lock assembly then the washer may be experiencing other issues. It could possibly have a faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

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.

You should have one. Get down low, and look at the kickplate. You should see screws just below the main front panel of the machine.
