The door interlock may be faulty. Try closing the door firmly or hit the door handle when the door is closed.

SOURCE: ge washer won't agitate

If the washer won't agitate at all, but the motor and belts are turning,
then you may have drive coupling or transmission issues. In this case, it
is well worthwhile to have a technician check the machine to verify this.
Sometimes, the base of your agitator can strip out, especially from
overloading. In such a case, the splines are damaged inside the agitator,
and can be seen after the agitator is removed.

If you can hear the motor running, and the water is moving a little bit, but not like normal where the clothes are being worked around you might just have worn out agitator dogs. This is a really easy 15 minute do it yourself fix, and the parts are less than $10 and widely available. Here is a how to article - http://zenfixit.com/repairs/appliance-repair/washing-machine-agitator-clutch-repair/

I would guess that your pump has gone south as the machine needs the full power of the pump to evacuate the water from the tub. It just could be that the pump has gotten stopped up by many strands of lint washed out of the clothes. Most likely your pressure filter that keeps these strands from going into your pump has clogged and no longer lets the water pass. You are going to have to either take the filter apart and clean it or replace it with a new one. Replacing it is probably the cheapest as far as time is concerned. If you turn the machine over on a side, then you can discover the filter is a round plastic container about 6in in dia. and two small hoses connect to it with tensioned ring clips. To take it apart, you have to remove 3 or 4 compression clips around the rim pointed in toward the center. It also could be made of one piece and you really have to replace. Test it to see if you can force water through it.

GE front load washer model number WBVH6240HWW SERIAL NUMBER RM200099T spins freely by hand but started smoking and belt behind looks fine. What could be the problem. Before the smoke started when spin...


Hmm... Kind of difficult to say for sure. Does your inner spin basket wiggle up and down? If so, you've got a main bearing going. Also, put it in a spin cycle for a minute or so and then try smelling the windings on your main motor. If they smell burnt, you'll need to replace the main motor. Also, one last thought, check to see if your drain pump overheats. I say this because the drain pump is active during the spin cycle and a bad drain pump can sound extremely noisy and start overheating.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

Our GE front loader washing machine starts to smoke when it goes to High Spin.


The transmission may be leaking oil, and then burning when the motor gets too hot during the high speed.

I am having the same problem.
Did you find a solution.
Our washer is just a little over 2 years old and I am trying to decide if I should just cut my losses and never buy a GE product ever again.
