GE TOP LOAD WASHER DOES NOT AGITATE OR SPIN

THE MACHINE IS NEW BUT I BOUGHT IT AT A SALVAGE DEALER IT FILLS WITH WATER FINE AND PUMPS THE WATER OUT FINE WHEN THE TIMER SWITCHES TO WASH IT WILL NOT WASH -- NOTHING HAPPENS. THE SAME IS TRUE WITH THE SPIN CYCLE NOTHING HAPPENS. THE STATUS LIGHT SHOWS IT SHOULD BE WASHING OR SPINNING BUT THE MACHINE IS SILENT AND NOTHING HAPPENS. I THINK I MIGHT HEAR SOMETHING THAT SOUNDS LIKE A RELAY TRYING TO KICK IN -- MAYBE, NOT SURE. THE MODEL IS WWSE5240G0WW

    I have the same washer and the same problem, no agitating or spinning. It fills and drains just fine. How can I jump the lid switch to see if that is the problem. I have also taken off the front panel and have checked the top of the motor for the flashing led described in the schematics but see nothing.

I have a GE MODEL WWSe5240G0WW top loader washer that has seen very little use. My problem is that the unit will not agitate or spin,every thing else seems to work ok. I did remove the top lid switch and jumped the to wires (Yellow/Red and Orange) still did not make any difference. Any in for would be great.

Defy dishwasher does not wash or spray the water but is filled with water and goes through it cycles, what can be wrong?


The motor that pumps the water out of the machine is the same motor that pumps thru the spray arms. The motor runs in one direction to pump the spray bar and in the opposite direction to drain the water out. look at the cycle timer. It switches the direction. If it proves good then the motor is bad.

I have a problem with my Asko D3350 Dishwasher, can you help? On startup the diswasher does its normal cycle and pumps excess water out and then fills the dishwasher with water to the correct level of...


Hi Tony,

I have the same machine (D3350) and almost the same problem.

Mine starts each cycle fine - pumps out - fills - rinses - pumps out tht first load and then does not fill again. If I manually fill with a bottle (about 2 litres) for each subsequent cycle then it washes as well as it ever did.

Seeing it fills once it cannot be the water supply, nor the solenoid that operate the water supply. So, my guess is the control panel.

Like you I would love to simply take advantage of the PC Upgradeable featurewshich seemed so attractive at the time of pruchase.

Washing machine will not wash or sping


Sounds like motor not running is this due to belt off/ or motor brushes worn or actual motor burned out ? Try the abc to find out. good luck.

My kenmore 1110.20702.990 washing machine fills up, washes, and does no more as to draining the water.....timer problem and can I get a repari part?????


If it is the timer you could manually turn it to go through the cycles. Most likely it is the pump. If the pump won't drain it won't spin hence it will stop right after the wash cycle. Pumps are fairly easy. Unplug the wasker. Remove as much of the water as you can. Pull out the unit and shut off your water supply hoses. Take off the back. The pump will be clamped to the largest hoses. Put towels on the floor once you take off the clamps all of the water will drain out. Replace the pump. Call Sears to get the new pump. Hope this helps-good luck.

My frigidaire top loader fills with water at the beginning of the wash...then nothing. it just sits there full of water.


Hi, could be your timer motor, timer or water level switch, first push timer knob in and manually advance to wash or spin cycle (program) then pull knob, see if machine operates, let me know, then i can tell you exactly what's problem.also advance timer, to spin cycle (program) machine should pump out water, or you can lower drain hose into bucket and empty machine, you should empty machine and try again, let me know what happened, we can solved this together. good luck.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


Hi!

If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Washer fills/agitates and stops prior to draining


If pump works fine or still pumps out water, then it is a timer malfunction. Replace the timer and you should be fine. To locate a part number for your timer, refer to www3.sears.com with the model number off your washer.

Washer fills, drains instead of agitating, fills, etc


ON THIS MACHINE WHEN IT AGGITATES MOTOR ROTATES ONE DIRECTION, WHEN IT PUMPS OUT AND SPINS IT ROTATES THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. YOUR MACHINE IS ROTATING THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN IT FILLS., INDICATING THAT THE TIMER IS SENDING VOLTAGE TO WRONG WIRES. SOLUTION , REPLACE TIMER.
PS: MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE PLUGGED IN TO MOTOR. WHILE THIS IS UNLIKELY , I HAVE SEEN THIS BE THE PROBLEM.
