GE WDSR2080D5WW Top Load Washer

This lovely GE WDSR2080D5WW Top Load Washer is only 1 1/2 years old... I cannot get rid of it... and will not. The problem is that it will not spin, and I am not sure about agitating, however, I do know that it will drain. The belt is still brand new and tight enough, and of course due to my hearing loss, I can only feel that the motor seems to be working fine.. kind of like humming. I did this once: picked it up and kind of dropped it down, it did spin... only SHORT time, ended up that I had to take the "test" load to the laundromat and finish it.

I have the same unit, about 3 yrs old. The problem I have seems to be the air switch that controls the water level. It also controls the spin cycle by telling the timer unit that the tub is empty and ready for spinning. Either the hose is clogged or the pressure unit glued to the tub is clogged. I hoper that helped! Good Luck!

GE WDSR2080D5WW wont spin or agitate

The coupling might be bad. Take cabnet off by removing 2 screws from counsel, then flip up and pop 2 clips and the cabnet will pull away from machine. Then pop 2 clips off pump down in front of machine then take the 2 quarter inch screws out of the 2 clips holding motor then you'll see coupling. Any questions call Chris's r Repair at 716-258-1944
