machine not draining and or not spinning
It won't pump the water
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I think you will find that most, if not all, washing machines have a separate electric drain motor/pump.If you have not checked and cleaned the filter I strongly suggest you try it. Here are my general guidance notes on the subject ;-0)
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!
GE washer wssr2070v1 will not spin.
If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening then check the belt on the bottom of the machine and the brake to make sure that the belt is not broken or stretched and also that the brake is not holding the drum
GE Front Load Washer wbvh5200 doesn't spin & complete wash cycle
if you are familiar on how to use an electric multimeter
this is what you do access to the motor which does the washing / spinning find the cable that are attached to the motor remove cables screw them on to a separated connecting block now you select a program ( awash ) with no laundry start the program then set you meter to volts hold the meter prongs on the cable that you have already put into the block hold firm the prongs in each wire you then should get voltage ( hold for 5/8 minutes if the voltage do not get interrupted there is nothing wrong with the control board but the motor is faulty and vice versa
