20 Most Recent General Electric WHRE5550H Top Load Washer Questions & Answers


There is a known problem with this GE model. Remove the front panel, look at the base plate below the motor. Can you see that it has been rubbing there? On that model the "front apron bracket" fails allowing the motor to rub againist the base. You will need to replace the apron with the new design they have out.Here is the part to order.
You may also check this by removing the front and run a load of wash and watch the motor.
Please post back your finding to me.

check the pump or drain pipe,these are the usual suspects

The pump will actually withstand the freezing, but to play it safe, just lay the drain hose down flat on the floor and allow the water to run out.

i don't know. i repaired same condition on different washer. it was the lid safety switch/pin contact. i tested
by pushing pencil in hole where safety pin goes.
DO NOT USE MACHINE WITHOUT WORKING LID CLOSED SAFETY LOCK. you could break an arm / hand.
i slid top off washing machine and moved lid switch back so ' lid pin ' would contact safety switch. if this is the cause, you may need to replace this low cost switch.

The drain on the wall is called a Stand Pipe. It is designed to be higher than the washing machine so that you do not flood the building every time you do a load of wash. The Machine has a built-in pump to pump the water out of the machine when needed.
You will need to attach a washing machine drain hose to the machine. You should be able to find one at Lowes or Home Depot. https://www.lowes.com/pd/bosch-drain-hose-extension-kit-gray/1000024537?cm_mmc=shp-_-c-_-prd-_-app-_-google-_-pla-_-186-_-sosaccessories-_-1000024537-_-0&kpid&k_clickID=go_625713068_34614756550_111134534590_pla-261169297148_c_9027729&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwc_2u8_-4AIV9x6tBh1fSA3fEAQYAyABEgJjjPD_BwE

Run the machine empty to see if you can clear some of the soap residue, E-4 is "suds lock" error and is usually due to using too much detergent.

when you let people know what type of machine it is then maybe we could help but go to the manufactures and download the user manual and check in the trouble shooting guide eric

hi
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
