GE Front Loader WBVH5200J3WW- Will not fill
« on: October 11, 2011, 07:36:18 PM »

Today we had a serviceman come out to look at our washer. Water is not coming into the washer, when you hit start you can hear it trying to drain.  He says we have a bad motor and will back with me with a price.  Could a motor really cause the water to not come into the washer?

Did he test anything? You could have a clogged drain pump, part # WH23X10028

Usually, a frontload washer will drain any excess water before filling when you press the start button.

A new drive motor will defintally not fix your problem.  Its either the fill valve, pressure switch, or the most common, stuff clogged in the drain pump.
