My washer would fill/drain ok but would not agitate or spin. I unplugged the washer and listened for the motor to click. When the motor clicked I plugged the washer back in. Then I opened and closed the lid 10 times. I turned the washer to the drain/spin position and turned it on. The belt moved back and forth several times and then went into a fast spin.

    this is for real. i had same problem. thought this was a joke. no joke. it worked. Of course, if it's a choice between tearing your washer apart or calling a tech...or simply trying this...I tried this.
    My washed went into a fast spin and walla... we looked at each other and said, "ain't that some ****!"

Well I know part of the answer and am looking for the exact sequence. Washer has to be reset. Sounds easy but I've had 3 techs tell me how to do it. I've been successful once.

First time I the tech told me how to do it I thought he was yanking my chain. Unplug, wait 60 secs, plug in turn on off 3 times, open and close lid 10 or 12 times, pray twice. Or some thing like that.

Has anybody found any write-up on the sequence?

I have a GE washer model # WHDRR418GWW. It is about 19 months old. It stopped agitating and spinning. It will fill with water and the timer/knob will go thru the cycles. But when it reaches the washing...


You have what is called "agitating dogs" there are usually 4 of them at the bottom of the agitator. They have small grippers which lock onto the agitator and agitates. If the washer is ever overfilled or over time filled to heavy this will wear down the nylon teeth on the "dogs". The top of the agitator will spin off, you will see a bolt inside at the bottom, remove bolt and the agitator will pull out. Google "agitating dogs on washer. It will give you pictures for a better understanding. If the belt was broken the washer would not drain, because the belt turns the pump. These dogs are about $5 and honestly easy to install. Good Luck.

It sounds like there is a dead spot in the timer. The timer is the control device behind the large knob on the right. The timer part number for you machine is 3955761 and runs about $150.00 for the part.

Most likely you have a bad belt or a defective lid switch.

Sounds like you tinmer is not advancing. Try advancing the timer manually to see if this starts agitating.

Washer squeaks really loud while agitating. Drains great 6yr old


Could indeed be the belt or at worst it could be thr main bearing getting dry and gradually seizing up. Hope it,s the belt!!

GE washer not agitating


when you pulled up agitator was the splined shaft moving back and forth ? If so replace the insert in the agitator. If not the problem is in the transmission .

Need long term soaking for new model whdrr418gww washer


sorry I dont know by the model which washer you have. I would suggest starting washer let it fill with water and then turn it off. If you let it soak overnight I suggest you start by spinning out the load and then starting the wash process over.
