Default GE washer spins sometimes
Model Number: WDRR2500K0WW   Brand: GE   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The washer spins sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. Also, a few times the clothes were soapy and soaking wet as if it didn't even rinse them. I've watched a whole cycle go through and it did everything it was suppose to do on "large" load, right after that I washed a load on "small" and it didn't spin, then I tried to put it on spin manually in several different modes(while still on "small" setting), i.e. whites, dark colors, regular, and it did not spin. I turned the selector to "large" and manually put it on spin and the motor engaged and started to spin. Also, a couple times the selector was on "small" and tried to start a load and it wouldn't even fill up with water. When the motor engages for spin cycle it does make a loud noise, but after that it seems fine.

any help will be greatly appreciated

thanks

Sounds like a problem with the water level switch. Remove the front panel by inserting a putty knife in the top groove in line with the lid opening on each side to release the clips. Lean the top of the panel out a little and then lift off the washer. On the lower left side of the tub there is an air dome with attached hose. Remove the hose and inspect for clogging. Use a small wire to put into the hose bib (be careful, easy to break the bib) on the air dome to make sure it's clear. Re-attach hose and open the control panel and remove the same hose from the water level switch. Put some water into the hose and blow into the hose to force the water through the air dome. We are trying to make sure the hose and air dome are clear of gunk. If none of this works, then I would replace the water level switch.

The hose was clogged at the bottom and I cut that part off and reconnected it. I ran the washer through a "small" load cycle and it seemed to work fine. Although, it did spin after agitation and before the "rinse/spin" cycle, but it filled up again for the rinse cycle drained and the spin cycle started. Is this normal?

thank you

After first agitation, it should drain, then spin, then fill again for the rinse cycle. That is normal.
