Essentially, if your GE Adora washing machine won't drain, your lint filter is probably full, and preventing the washer from fully draining.
This is something that GE wants you to pay a technician to do. That means a service call that usually has an 8-hour window. It may be a week out, as well. That leaves you with wet laundry, and out possibly several hundred dollars (not counting lost time at work).
From start to finish, this will take you about 30 minutes if you're careful and take your time.
Please let me know if your experience differs from what I've detailed, and I'll update.
Step 1: Assemble Your Tools.
Step 2: Unplug Your Washing Machine!
Step 3: Unscrew 3 Screws That Hold the Lower Front Plate on the Washer.
Step 4: Lift Off the Front Cover.
Step 5: Unscrew the Filter.
CAUTION: Do NOT get over zealous and unscrew it all the way out right now, or you will have a ton of water all over you and everything in close proximity to the washing machine.
Position your catch basin underneath the plug and unscrew it just enough for water to start coming out. When you get close to filling up your basin, screw it back in to stop the flow of water. Empty basin and repeat. The pot I used is 4.5 quart, and I dumped it 5 times. So, there may be quite a bit of water that you have to drain.
If you have the washer riser installed, the tray is sealed plastic, so you could theoretically let it drain into there and deal with it from there, but it's easier to do it one pot at a time.
"NOTE": Don't dump this water down your sink. It's full of lint, etc., and could easily clog a sink or bathtub drain. Dump it in a toilet or outside.
Step 6: Clean the Lint Filter.
The stuff should fall out in one big hairball-like wad. You may have to pull some through the holes on the bottom.
Be sure to take a look into the lint filter hole to make sure that when you pulled the filter out that you didn't leave anything behind.
Step 7: Reassemble and Test.
Reinsert the lint filter and screw in clockwise to secure.
Place the front cover on and secure with the three screws.
Plug in the washing machine, and run a small load.
You've just emptied your washer's lint filter.
