Typically, your washer will be stuck on sensing if the washer is not able to transition to the next cycle. This will happen if the water inlet valves are closed, if there was a recent power outage or power surge, or if the control board or timer is defective.
Your washer is loud during spinning because of too much laundry, uneven clothes distribution, loose drum screws, worn-out shock absorbers, or a broken seal. Other reasons include faulty suspension rods, faulty drum bearings, or a trapped object/coin. Involve an expert if the problem persists.
In general, start by restarting your smartphone, GE washer, and your WiFi router. Attempt to connect your GE washer over the SmartHQ app again. If it still won’t connect then connect it over Bluetooth by adding it as a Bluetooth device. When it still won’t connect then do the steps below.
A GE washer may beep and not start for a number of reasons but the most common reason is a faulty door sensor. If the door sensor is failing or broken, it will signal the control board that the door is open and it will not start for safety reasons. You can replace the door sensor along with the latch.
If the lid is not closed properly, the GE washer will not spin. This is a safety feature that is built into the washing machine to protect you and your family from harm. On the other hand, if the lid is closed but the lid switch is faulty, it will signal to the control board that the lid is open.
Overall, the agitator is loose and needs to be tightened or replaced, it’s overloaded with too many heavy items, or too much laundry, the washer is not level because one of the feet are too long or too short, or the stabilizers on the side of the tub have failed and need to be replaced.
Overall, the drain pump has a clog in it, the drain pump has failed, the onboard computer needs to be restarted by unplugging your GE washer and the wall and plugging it back in again, or the drain hose is kinked or is not installed into the stand pipe correctly.
To fix GE washer smells, use the hot cycle regularly. Also, leave the door open after use, to allow the inside to dry out. Make sure that the door seal is cleaned regularly with bleach or white vinegar. Check the drain pump and filter and remove any obstructions that prevent the water from draining.
Your GE washer lid lock is not working due to mechanical or electrical failure. Examine the door lock for any damaGE and replace it if it’s damaged. Test the door switches and replace any that lack continuity. Further, examine the door strike and main control board and replace any damaged parts.
You can reset a GE washer spin cycle/won’t spin by selecting the ‘Final Spin’ cycle. Press and hold the ‘Spin’ option on the digital display for 3 seconds. Once the command displays on the panel, turn off the ‘Extra Rinse’ option and start the spin cycle.
The GE washer repeats, won’t rinse, or stops at the rinse cycle because of clogging of pipes, having a faulty timer, imbalanced loading, or using the excess or wrong type detergent. Faulty wiring and failure to read the manual are also possible reasons.
When a GE washer lid keeps locking, unlocking, or clicking, the problem could be anything from a faulty lid lock to a failing lid lock sensor. Clicking locks often signify a snapped plastic component or insecure lid attachment. Replacing the lid lock, latch, or sensor may solve the problem.
A GE washer that keeps tripping the breaker, beeping, or balancing might be suffering from electrical issues. Additionally, loose clothing or small bits of debris can cause your washer drum to register as off-balance. You may need to contact an electrician or repair technician to fix these problems.
If your GE washer doesn’t fill, first confirm if the household water supply is on, then inspect the cold and hot faucets to ensure they are both fully functional. Low water pressure, failed inlet valves, temperature selector switch issues, and water-level pressure switch may be some perpetrators.
A GE washer won’t wash cycle properly if it overheats or when the control board has an electrical issue. To solve a faulty wash cycle, let your washer rest for at least a day. If the problem persists, reset the machine’s motor, replace the timer, or have a GE technician service your washing machine.
A GE washer might fail to work due to a faulty spin belt or a clogged water pipe. Blown fuses, power surges, and dead wall outlets are also common culprits. Troubleshooting the GE washer is the best way to discover the precise reason why it’s not starting, turning off, or turning on.
A GE washer won’t spin correctly when there is an insufficient power supply or if the washing machine needs repair. A damaged control panel, broken door latch, or a malfunctioning timer can interfere with the spin cycle. Replacing defective metal parts will restore the washer’s spinning power.
If the rinse, spin, and wash function lights of your GE washer are all flashing simultaneously, this often indicates a blockage in the drain/waste pipe or the filter. The manual that comes with your washer will tell you where you can access these locations (some GE washers differentiate).
