Washer sometimes not spinning or filling with water
« on: June 30, 2013, 11:40:07 PM »

So I just bought a house and the washer doesn't work properly. It rarely spins at the end, but I've seen it do it twice. It often doesn't fill with water but if I turn the water level knob to "RE" I seem to be able to force it to fill. So basically everything "works", just not all the time. I've been looking at just buying a new one but I love way out of town and noone will deliver so I'd like to fix this one. Any suggestions? It's a GE and model is GJXRP080D

To remove the front panel of the washer, push in two clips at the top of the panel with a putty knife  while pulling out.  On the left front of the tub there is a pressure tube. Clean the gunk out of it or replace the tube, WH41X365.

Besides gunk,  how fast is the water being pumped out?   Possible sock or other item in hose going into pump,   or could be up in tub floating around.     Pull the tub to pump hose if you have slow drain and check.
