Question about GE Profile Harmony WPGT9360E 4.0 Cu. Ft. Washer

1 Answer

When spinning, Out of balance message occurs, then the machine starts to add water to get the load out of balance. It will put additional time on the wash cycle. It will drain and try to spin again. Then it will get another out of balance message. This will happen two or three times, if it is unsuccessful. The load will be extra wet and then I will do a spin only option. This happens to small loads of laundry and to larger loads.

It could be weak shocks for the drum or the springs. you can also overload the washer. there should be a gap in filling washer with clothes around 5-to 6 cm's on the drum ring this gives space for movement and balancing. the washer can also become out of balance if the bearing is damaged, if you can lift the drum from the bottom of the ring and it moves up and down by few millimeters and feels lose then its usually a sign the bearing is weak. this can make the display say there is a problem with balance. 6kg or 7kg is the weight of the clothes and water not the clothes. over loading the washer damages the bearings and put more pressure on the shocks and springs.

SOURCE: washer wil not spin or drain out after cycle completed

sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

SOURCE: Walking during the spin cycle

My GE front load washer model WCVH6800JBB have the same problem. I just purchased and installed it yesterday, 05/04/09. Just like everyone said... when it got to the spinning cycle it walked to the middle of my garage and all the connections in the back of the machine fell off. My husband checked the instruction... There are 4 nut bolts in the back of the machine near the rubber leg (level). You need to take them off and try to balance your machine again. My washer is running very smooth now. Good luck!

SOURCE: Washing Machine shakes on spin cycle.

I was replacing my boot seal because it was torn like many others here. I discovered why my washer had been shaking as well. There are springs that are anchored to help balance the barrel and one of them had come unanchored. The stake that anchored one of the springs had wiggled out. I just put it back in and now my seal is replaced and the washer is balanced again. Although I appear to have a small leak somewhere still so I am still searching online for answers.

Washing machine won't go to spin cycle if there are towels in it


Washing machines have trouble if they are overloaded and the load gets out of balance. This occurs most often with towels. Open the machine and lift the towels out and put them back in evenly to get the load to finish. You will see how heavy they are when full of water. In future, try running with a few less towels and see if it works ok. You have found the other 'fix' by draining and running spin only which probably resettles the load.

I have showing 5d does not spin what does it mean


This code indicates that excessive detergent suds occurred during the cycle. The washer will not be able to spin out water with the excess suds. When "Sd" is displayed, the washer automatically extends the rinse time to remove the excess suds. During this time, the washer pauses the wash action and adds water for additional rinsing. This pause allows the bubbles in the suds to break. This process is necessary and may occur several times to eliminate the suds.
Concentrated detergents labeled 2x and higher will require a small amount of detergent based on load size. Always follow the manufacturer's recommendations.

Brand new. Load gets stuck on 14 minutes or some other time & repeats over & over. Wont finish cycle. We have to use the drain & spin to get the water out but then clothes are not rinsed well....


Sounds like you are probably doing a very bulky or real off balance load on a high spin speed setting. The washer is trying to get the load up to spin speed, but the load is too off balanced. Try the lowest spin speed setting for that load. If it makes it through that, then power machine back on and just push the spin speed button until the next higher speed shows up, and then the start button if you want to spin it out better. If it still didn't make it through the original cycle on the lowest spin speed, your load must be way too off balanced, like one coat that is saturated with water. If that is the case, you may even have to squeeze some water out of it by hand before you would be able to get the washer to get it up to spin speed.

Whirlpool front load washer won't spin - just sometimes


Most Whirlpool (Hotpoint) machines have "out of balance" sensors that detect very large movements of the drum suspension usually due to a very badly balanced washing load.
This can occur for various reasons but putting large and/or heavy items in can trigger these sensors i,f as the machine starts to spin, the items dont get distributed evenly around the drum. This is more likley with large/heavy items.
The machine will then restrict the spin speed for the remainder of the wash cycle, and once the machine is switched off, the next time the machine is used it returns the spin speed back to normal - but if it detects an out of balance situation, it will again restrict the spin speed.
It sounds to me the machine is acting as designed. You could try positioning the items differently as you load them, and hope they dont end up "all over one side".

My PAVT920AWW won't spin hard enough to get all the water out


I have had teh same problem. I calledin the Maytag service and they did replace something out of goodwill but the technician told me that the load balance sensor is sensitive. If your load is unbalanced then the machine will spin slowly so it does not walk across the floor. With larger loads the wieght will make the machine bang against the sides and walk.

The solution is quite simple. Make sure the load is balanced. The agitator has a way of unbalancing a load from time to time so you need to do this manually. It is a very rare occurance and it is best to make sure your load goes into the machine balanced first.

Clothes too wet


Watch the washing machine go through its complete spin cycle.(It could have a filter in the pump,check for water flow coming out of the drain. Make sure the washing machine is fully leveled with a square. make sure you put fairly big loads to keep it balanced. If the washing comes out wet on the final spin ,add some more garments and then put it on spin again as the w/m might be going out of balance. Under the work bench on top some times there is a spring to adjust the tension. about every five or six years the motor brushes need changing.
