    The wash cycle completes, but leaves the clothes sodden. I consulted the troubleshooting guide and it looks as if the "electronic unbalance detection device has cut in because the laundry is not evenly distributed in the drum".

    I have tried running a spin cycle with nothing in the drum and it still doesn't get up to speed (it attempts to, but just seems to trip out). The machine is draining with no problems.

    Does it look as if I need new brushes/motor? A friend has had a look at the brushes, he does think they could do with replacing.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks,


    P.S. The machine is approximately 4 years old.

Did you happen to solve the problem? I am having the same exact issue with mine...washes fine, but won't do the spin cycle. it spins counter clockwise really slow at first, presumably to balance the clothes, and then starts to spin up clockwise (to do the spin cycle) but then whinnies and then stops....!

    For anyone who finds this post w/the same issue, turns out the controllerboard/motherboard had gone bad and had to be replaced.

Ge washer whre5550k2ww tub wont spin

It may be the rotor position sensor. i used you tube tutorials. There are many washers that are the same, but different brand names. Matag, whirlpool, kenmore elite oasis, all the same and parts. I got lucky and a cleaning hack. It was to clean between the tob and thre shell. This is located up under where you cannot see, use a mirror and look wherr your detergent, fabric softer and bleach dispensers are. And i found a tutorial on diagnosting code that will do it for you. I think it was holding a cycle 5x for 5 seconds and it will tell you. Whats wrong, Good Luck

Disconnect your washer's plug for 5 minutes or more from the wall socket. Plug in. Press "end of cycle" button for over 5 seconds, the child lock comes off.
Press it again and the child lock comes on................ If this does not work, try the pre-wash button likewise.
