Question about GE WWSE5240G

Open Question

My GE model WWSE5240GWW does not spin or agitate.

It must have something to do with the motor and circuit board because the motor does not run in spin or agitating cycle

SOURCE: GE Washing machine won't spin in rinse cycle

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.

SOURCE: GE Top Load Washing Machine -- Agitator will not cycle

Agitator's don't spin on wash cycle.

I would suggest washing the clothes without soap until they rinse clear. If you have hard water, the soap will not easily rinse out of clothes, or off of you when you use soap to wash or shower.

Reduce the amount of soap you use in each wash if this is the case. It sounds like your washing machine is working right.

SOURCE: my ge washer whdsr209d model wont agitate

Reach down to the bottom of the tub and pull the agitator straight up and out of the machine. Sometimes this is a bit difficult. If so, slip a belt or rope under the agitator, attach to a 2 x 2 or similar object, and **** it straight up and out of the machine. Now, take the bolt out of the center part with a 1/2 inch wrench. Pull the upside down can shaped nylon part straight up and off. If it does not come off, you can crack it in parts with a hammer and chisel if needed. Try to turn the splined shaft with your fingers. If you can turn it, you are screwed. (need a new transmission) Most likely you will not be able to turn it with your fingers, which is good. That means that all you have to do is replace the agitator drive (sometimes called an air bell coupler) part number WH49X10042, reinstall agitator, and you are ready to go. Cheap fix.

Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

A ge top load washer first began by making a buzzing noise instead of spinning. Now it doesn't spin as fast as before or just wont spin. Jeans wrapped around the agitator shouldn't damage the spin?


the agitator spins with the tub so clothes wrapped around the agitator will have no effect on the spin other than a balance problem
The hum and failure to start spinning may be attributed to a failed (failing ) start run capacitor or program board not moving on properly
As the start /run capacitor is for the motor and if it start the wash cycle ok but after that cycle ( around 30-40 minutes) it may be too hot to restart the motor for the spin
I suggest that a technician be called in to get a proper diagnosis and a quote

Does not agitate or spin. model number WPRE6100G0WT Pump works fine. Lid switch is okay and power to motor. Fuse on nuetral is also good. Suspect control circuit board or inverter at the motor. Can...


Is motor running? Remove cabinet and jump the lid switch with a small piece of wire. Put washer into cycle and run. Does the motor work? No- I would guess you have a bum circuit board or a short before the motor. If this is a direct drive, you probably have a slipping clutch, which is an easy fix. Let us know.

GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin


This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

We had the same problem with our new GE washer.......the repairman just left. It's the circuit board on the motor that failed, causing the motor to stop working. GE will replace it under warranty.
