How to Troubleshoot & Repair Common GE Washer Issues

You are in the right location if your GE washer is giving you problems. To help you troubleshoot or repair any issues you may be experiencing, we have compiled a guide of common problems and solutions. This article will tell you what to do if your GE washing isn’t working correctly.

The smell is coming from my GE Washing Machine

Your washing machine may be one of your most used appliances. Due to this, your washing machines can become clogged with mold, mildew, or bacteria. This is one of the most straightforward problems to fix. It usually involves cleaning your washing machine thoroughly.

What you should do:
Put on some protective gloves. Use 2 cups warm water, 1/2 cup bleach, and 1/4 of a lemon to create a solution. Combine two cups of hot water with 1/2 cup white wine vinegar and 1/4 cup lemon for a natural cleaner. Pour your cleaning solution into a sprayer once you’ve mixed it. Start cleaning the door gaskets (on front-loader washers) and around door areas. Next, clean off the outside of the machine. Spray the inside and wipe it down, taking special care of the inside drawer of your GE machine. Fill the detergent compartment with the cleaning solution. Then, turn the washer to the highest and longest cycle. Leave the door open once the cycle is finished to allow your washer to dry.

Is my GE washing machine leaking

The washing machine leaking is another problem. You can quickly fix this yourself. The leak’s cause depends on its source. If your washing machine leaks from the rear, the most probable cause is a broken drain hose. You must remove the washing machine and check all the hoses for this type of leak. It is essential to replace any damaged hoses or inlet valves. If all the hoses and valves in the intake are acceptable, it is time to see if you leak elsewhere. Regarding top-loading machines, you can get leaks when your washer gets overloaded. You may also use too much laundry detergent, which will cause too many suds inside the drum. The water pump can also be a problem. You’ll find it at the bottom. For a water pump that isn’t working, see if you can find the leak underneath the washing machine. If so, have a technician come out and check it. If you have front-loading washers, a damaged seal on the drum or door gasket will likely cause leaks. You will need to replace either component if it shows signs of damage.

My GE washer won’t drain

A few components inside your GE washing machines may be causing your machine to fail to drain. Lid switch. This switch signals the main control board to ensure the washing machine door is closed. It can cause the washer not to work if it doesn’t think the door is closed. You can test the lid switch by pressing it down with a finger. You must try it with a Multimeter if there is no click sound. Water pump. The pump drains the water out during and following a wash cycle. Your washing machine will stop draining if the pump becomes clogged. The pump must be removed, inspected, and replaced if it shows signs of damage. A multimeter can also be used to test the pump motor. Drain hose. Drain hose. Find the drain hose. Inspect it for any damage. If damaged, replace it. Drain.

My GE washer won’t spin

You can take a few easy fixes and troubleshooting steps if your GE washer won’t spin. To begin with, make sure your washing machine drum is light enough. This will stop it from rotating. You should also ensure no heavy items, such as towels, are in your GE machine. The motor will not be powerful enough to allow the drum to move. If these simple fixes fail, you must check the belt drive and drive belt. The problem will require a technician to repair it electrically.

Identifying the possible causes of your GE machine not filling with water is essential. The most common ones are checking that all hoses are in good condition, the faucets are turned on, the water filter is working, etc. If the problem persists, it may be caused by a faulty electronic water inlet, pressure chamber, or even a defective water level switch. These components can be more difficult and expensive to repair.
