Washer is Stuck in Spin Cycle?


February 12, 2017

I have purchased a GE GFWR4805 high capacity front loading clothes washer that will not spin water out of the clothes. It appears to be stuck on 17 to 15 min. spin cycle with cloths remaining WET no matter what.


Many of the posts on GE leaves me a bit flustered as many have spent much on service men, but few on fixes that work. Has anyone had this model that has worked?

If it is repeating a cycle, then there is something wrong with the timing, sensors, or the draining mechanism.

You do not say how old your washer is but maybe you could still call the service department where it was purchased and ask for help with your problem.


this is a very "fancy" washer and has a lot of features which of course means there may be more than one thing causing this problem. Does your machine give you a default code? This is usually a very good indication of what is causing the trouble.

Have you checked your manual for their solutions? You can download a manual if you do not have your manual available.
Here are 2 sites that have your manual available (free). They do show some suggestions for you to review:

Make sure it is level. I have a bosch, and if it gets off level, it does all sorts of weird things, including not spinning out the water. Also, sometimes you can "reset" the machines by unplugging them for a few hours, then plugging them back in.

My GE washer (9 years old) gets stuck on the spin cycle. What would cause this and what will it cost to repair?

It sounds like possibly the timer is getting stuck and not advancing. If you have to physically move the timer to the stop position then it is most likely the timer.


Timers are can be expensive ranging from 80.00 to well over a hundred. Hope this information helps.
