Question about GE WJSR2070B Top Load Washer

Washer will not spin

When the machine is empty it runs through all cycles just fine, including the spin cycles. when I place a load of clothes in the basket the washer starts its spin cycles as normal then abruptly brakes to a stop as if I had lifted the lid (I checked the lid switch and it appears to work ok). If I leave the machine alone, it will repeatedly attempt to restart the spin cycle and it starts and then stops again just as the basket reaches top speed. it will attempt this two or three times until the times shuts it down.

Could be a bad clutch or transmission. I would either call a tech or get a new washer (these newer GE models don't seem to be very reliable, go for a Whirlpool/Kenmore model next time). Here are breakdown diagrams for your washer: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=230151 Hope this helps, APP Tech

Kenmore front load washer spins when empty, but not with a load of clothes in it.

The drain pump for your washing machine could either be broken or faulty or clogged or the drain house and pump need to be replaced.

How can I reset a Haier Portable Washer? I have HLP24E. It shows UL (unbalanced load) after I choose Rinse&Spin or Spin, and never spins even the washer is empty..

Try it with a few clothes placed along the outer walls of the drum. It has a sensor that will try to balance the load before going up to full speed but if there are no clothes or weight in the drum, it won’t start.

Drum is loose during Spin and Rinse cycle and banging against side of washer

If it is under warranty, call Whirlpool at 1-866-698-2538. If it is out of warranty, try running the washer with no clothes in it in spin cycle. If it runs fine empty, it may be that when you had clothes in it they were not balanced evenly in the tub. If it runs off balance when empty, then a spring may have broken or come off. Contact an appliance repairman.

Does washer drain before the spin cycle starts?

Normally yes. There are around 12 to 20 gallons of water in the tub after the wash cycle, which will be anywhere from 63 to 110 pounds of weight in addition to the weight of the clothes. For the machine to start the spin cycle to remove this water would place a heavy load on the motor, gearcase, pullys, belts, gears, ect. With the water drained, the load is lighter, and much easier to start spinning the excess water out of the clothes. The normal cycles are: Fill, Agitate, Drain, Spin, Rinse Fill, Agitate for rinse, Drain, Spin Cycle and off. Imagine trying to spin a 5 gallon bucket of water over your head, full of water, and then empty. Which one do you think would be easier to do? And safer for you.

Wash.machine won't spin

Door lock switch # 131763245 if everything else is working fine this should fix the problem. It shorts out between the motor control board and the door lock from emptying the cycle and spinning. Try running your machine on drain/spin and see if it drains and tosses clothes and then stops with no spin. If that happens then it is your door lock.switch. Easy to replace by yourself and costs $65.00

Can't get washer to finish spin cycle

I'm not familiar with this washer, but if there is water in the drum when it comes to the spin cycle chances are that it won't spin. The likely cause of water left in the drum would be that it is not emptying fast enough, so you might check the pump for a blockage, or if there is a filter check that for some obstruction like fluff, coins, or small items of clothing which can sometimes get drawn through from the drum.
