    In the past our machine would sometimes not spin. I solved the problem by recycling the dial. This time we cleaned out the pump area...got over five dollars inchange and a guitar pick out of the red thingy in the pump. Still won't spin. Bummer. I have 5 loads waiting. (:

    Have a GE front load (WSXH208A) washer and the pump seems to be stuck, as it continues to run even after the tub is empty. The tub water level sensor seems OK. Anyone with suggestions? Thanks much.

    The error light flashes 10 times indicating *check backsplash control*. I've disconnected and reconnected everything. I did the reset and the light does flash for normal operation but I still can't get it to work. No lights on the front panel light up and no response to any controls. After awhile the light goes back to 10 flash error code. I did drain the tub and found no obstructions. The machine may have been in the final spin mode when it stopped working. I found an unbalanced load in the wash and the machine had moved itself about 6 inches from its original position. I did test the outlet and it is good.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: front load whirlpool washing machine runs fine unt...


You can try this:

First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

How abt a nice rating for the free help? Thnks

GE front load washer will not complete the rinse & spin cycle


1) 1st check the filter under the machine (it unscrews behind the access panel 2) open front door and pull back the rubber membrane to see metal and clean out the debris blocking drain holes 3) remove the drain hose from the machine (spring clip) and try and run water thru it and keep blowing out the junk and re-attach 4) run the machine thru 2 cleaning cycles w/bleach and without bleach 5) start using less detergent

Why won't my washer won't spin or drain


If the water is not removed first, the spin will not occur. Do you hear the pump run when it starts the spin cycle? If nothing, the pump may be jammed with debris, or the motor itself may have failed. If the motor runs, but no water comes out of the drain, then look for a kinked drain hose (inside the cabinet) or possibly a stray sock lodged in the drain outlet under the outer tub. Sometimes the pump impeller will come loose from the motor shaft causing loss of pump action. Hope that some of this helps!
