Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

The washer pauses mid-cycle. The pump filter is not clogged. After watching the GE video on how to unclog the pump filter, it said if the pump filter was not clogged there may be an imbalance problem. But I could not find the video explaining how to fix that.

Make sure that your cold water side of the water valve on the back of the unit is no clogged. Mid cycle is usually when the rinse cycle begins and that usually only uses cold water.

Washer will pause in mid cycle, once you push the pause cycle it will run for a while then will pause again, after about 5 to 6 times a load it will complete.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to clean the filter which is located on the front bottom of the washing machine right below the washer window. It is held up by three screws. Take out the screws and clean the lint. You’ll find in the lint some small clothing, coins and other small things.


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

My washer will not drain the water and the spin-Model ATF6000FS1


I had the same problem but bought a new washer. As we were parting this washer out we found that there is a black rubber boot the attaches to the water pump. There is a filter inside of this boot and it was clogged with hair, string, and almost 2 bucks in change. No wonder it wouldnt drain. Check yours and see if thats your problem too!

I had the same problem.....The start/pause button would flash during a cycle and the washer would not finish the cycle. After reading on this forum that there is a filter/strainer inline with the drain, I tried this solution.
Remove the (3) screws that hold the lower front panel (Just below the door)
Once the panel is removed, you should see a white plastic strainer hooked to the washer drain.

Please a large bowl under the opening and unscrew the knob/handle, pull the filter/strainer out and clean all of the lint/trash out of this area.

My filter/strainer was clogged with a baby sock, 2 doilies, a fewe pennies, 2 dimes and lot's of lint.
I believe all of this debris was causing musty odors in the machine as the lint would stink due to dampness.

Once I cleared out this filter/strainer the problem and my odors went away
I wish GE would add this "EASY" step into the owners manual for proper care and maintenace.

Thank you for letting me know about this filter/strainer as it did resolve my problem

Stuck between cycles


It seams to me that your pump and/or water outlet is clogged. Humming noise comes from the water pump as it tries to pump out water. You should unplug the machine, unclog the outlet pipe if it is clogged. While you're at it check if the filter in front of the pump isn't clogged too.

The problem may the pump filter which is hidden behind the lower front panel. To access the filter, unscrew three screws at the bottom of the panel and carefully remove the lower front panel. Make sure to unplug the machine. With the panel removed you will see the pump filter. Get a bucket and some towels ready, because when you open the filter, you may get a gallon plus of water coming out. GE failed to put this in the use and care manual for the 6260. But low an behold, GE put an access door and explicit instructions on cleaning the pump filter in the updated 6400.

You may have burned out your washer pump. That is what happened to me. The machine would not drain or spin properly and so I kept pushing the blinking start/pause button to get it going again. Then it finally did not drain at all. I installed a new pump and with the cleaned filter, the machine worked like new. For some, simply cleaning the filter allows the pump to work properly. As the filter gets clogged the pump has to work harder and harder to pump out the water. When this happens the cycle times get extended . One symptom of a clogged filter is the final minute (spin cycle) takes much longer. Obviously this is a "design flaw" that GE "fixed" in the recent version of the 6260.
