SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin

this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

SOURCE: Drain pump/motor not draining.

actually it sounds like there was or is something in the water pump (like a string or metal underwire from a bra). before replacing the water pump i would look inside it and check for foreign objects.

  1. unplug the machine, but leave other hoses connected
  2. use a butter knife or putty knife to open the front panel; at the top seam between the top panel and the front panel is 2 metal clips (about where the edges of the lid are). push these strait in to release the front panel.
  3. once the front panel is off then you should see the water pump on the right side. it has 2 large black hoses and 2 wires attached to it.
  4. take off the water pump (two 3/8 bolts) and look inside it.

SOURCE: Broken knob on GE washer

There are four separate parts that make up the knob dial. You can pull off the knob if you use a screwdriver/pliers to remove the clip holding it on. Check if the mounting areas appear stripped or broken. There should also be a compression ring in the mounting hole on the back of the knob. That's what may be broken or stripped. These are all parts that you can get from a local parts store (check the phone book) and you can do it yourself. Any of those parts should cost less than $10. The bad news is if you stripped the pole coming out of the timer assembly. You would need to replace the entire assembly which costs about $130. If you call a GE repairman, you are looking at $89.95 or more just to have them show up. If it is still under warranty, there is no charge. You can call them to verify this:

SOURCE: GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

What is the capicity of a GE WWA7600S washer


Here is the user's manual:

http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/pdf/49-9810.PDF

They never talk about weight or capacity other than

Setting the Controls

Use the Suggested Fabric and Cycle Settings guide ~ Select Rinse Temperature.

to help you make the proper selections.

~ Select Wash Spin Speed.

~ Push Cycle Selector knob in and turn clockwise to

your selected wash setting. If you wish to change setting

~ Select Water Level. ~ Pull Cycle Selector knob + START out to start the washer.

SMALL: Washer is less than 1/3 full of clothes.

MEDIUM: Between 1/3 and 1/2 full.

LARGE: Between 1/2 and 2/3 full.


This washer will pretty much take anything you can throw at it. It was a competetor of the Maytag large capacity washers. As long as you follow the loading guide above you are not going to hurt it.


Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My washer fills with water and drains but does not agitate or spin. The belt is fine. This washer is one year old.


The top of the agitater should only turn counter clock wise by hand. If it free wheels the plastic dogs between the 2 halves of the agitator are broken. Cheap fix.

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer wont start only washer or only dryer


Did you figure out a solution to this problem? I just bought a brand new Frigidaire and it is doing the exact same thing, except it never worked properly. I thought it was the unit and had HH Greg bring another out but the 2nd one did the same as the first.

Washer fills, does nothing during wash cycle, then drains. Washer is a 587.15252402. It is also very hot inside


sounds like a GE . MY BEST GUESS IS THE CAP UNDER THE AGITATOR IS STRIPED . REPLACING IT SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM

Washing machine quits after filling


I believe you need a new belt. The weight of the water is to much for a loose belt that is connected to the agitator.
2. Make sure nothing is blocking the safety shut off located on the machine.

GE Profile Washer - Model WPS Q416OT2WW - Knob repair


Knob should have a small plastic cover in the middle that just pops off. From there you will see a nut or pin holding it in-place. Why are you replacing the timmer? (Timmer is a VERY last resort when working with washers) I'll check back later around 5pm

GE Washer wbsr3140d5ww water problem


Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

I have a problem with my washer
For some reason when I try to start the washer and I have it set to cold it does not work if I put it to hot then its fine
The cold water does work though because if I change the washer to a later cycle cold water comes out just fine.
So it almost seems like its the timer knob
any ideas?
Thanks
