Question GE washer/not draining/pump works/not clogged/not lid switch
Model Number: wvsr1060a1ww   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


GE top load washer doesn't drain on any of the cycles. Electric pump tests good out of machine. Water drains when hose is lowered (not clogged). Lid switch is good (it spins). Can it be the the water level switch? Am I wrong in assuming it's not the cycle selector switch? Is there a test point on the switch for pump voltage? I see on a diagram,that the line voltage comes from R8-R9/R22-R23/R2-R1. Are these terminals at the switch?

I'm trying to help my able (not employed) sister, long distance, over the phone. Any help? Thanks.

Run it through a cycle, with a small amount of water. When it comes to the drain cyce, check for 120VAC at the pump.

Sorry, thought that I was clearer than that. No voltage at pump during drain cycle. Pump works when plugged into 120v.

Sounds like a faulty timer.

Thanks, because of shipping to the middle of no-where and the time involved I was hoping for a test point to make sure. My sister already bought a pump and when I told her how to test the old one, found out it was still good.

Default okay, then..

I have a similar problem. Washer fills, agitates, spins, but doesn't drain. It does not drain after the wash cycle, nor during the spin/dry cycle. When I take the drain hose out, and put it lower than the washer, drains just fine....so no hoses are blocked.
Pulled the pump out..it's sitting right here.
Took an old extension cord, stripped the wires...plugged it in....now, when I touch the wires to the two blade connectors on the pump body...that pump oughtta spin, right?
Thanks,
Rob "I don't know nothin' 'bout electricity" Hall

The most important thing you need to know about electricity is that it will kill you.

Yes, the pump should run when you hook up the test cord. If it doesn't, you need to replace it.

Default yabbut...

thanks, magician.
Now for the follow up...the website shows a new pump...looks very different from my stone-age pump, which looks like a design from the 1950's..probably was, although the washer's only 10 years old.
Anyway, the part that every website lists for my replacement pump looks like an upgrade, but overall dimensions and bracket appear similar. Output spigot is different, but the drain hose from the tub is plenty long and flexy to hook up.
I'm assuming the pump was updated...so I went ahead and ordered it.
Somebody please tell me I did the right thing....
It's a GE WBXR2060V2WW model washer....and the fact that I can type that from memory should indicate how much time I've put into hunting down a replacement pump....
Oh, yeah....one more thing...
The new pump appears to have blade-type connectors, similar to the old pump. Can I assume that my two female connectors should go on the new pump in the same layout as the old one? (Black wire on left, red/white wire on right...I'll check my notes to be sure.)
