Washing machine fills, but won't agitate

I have a GE washing top load washing machine, and it has filled up, but won't switch to the next cycle. I have attempted the troubleshooting suggestions from the manual, with no luck. Right now, the tub is full, but the machine just won't move to the next cyle, to agitate, rinse or spin. I have tried different settings with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

    I also have a GE Top Loading Washing Machine. It fills with water nicely, but won't click onto the next cycle. It just makes this buzzing noise. So I turned it off, and tried to turn it back on again about 30 minutes later, but still nothing. Just this buzzing noise. The Machine is currently filled to the top with water and clothes. Any help would be great! Thanks!

    Solution #2 helped me solve the problem. I stuck a straw into the slot where the lid cam engages the switch, and it worked. Thank You Very Much!

I had a similar problem with my Centrex (now defunct company). I found that by emptying the water (lay the exit pipe down to ground level or into a bucket) the machine would then kick over to the spin cycle. I am assuming it has something to do with the water pump not pumping out the water and subsequenttly, not being able to move past the rinse cycle.

Check to make sure the machine is not filling and draining at the same time. If it is the drain tube is not high enough and is siphoning water out of the drum.

Check the lid switch...if the machine thinks the lid is will just sit there after filling!!

Posted on Aug 02, 2007

The lid switch may have gone bad. It's a $20 part that you may be able to replace yourself. You may be able to check it. With the lid open and the dial set to agitate, try inserting a something PLASTIC like a stirrer or ballpoint pen cap into the slot where the lid cam engages the switch. It may be possible to manually turn the switch on with pressure UP, in the direction the cam would normally contact.

Hi sounds like the bushes have gone. You can pick up another couple for around £12. If you take the top off, you will find them located either side of the motor. Replace these and all should be okay.

SOURCE: Hotpoint WT540 1400 spin Washing Machine stuck on cycle

Could be a sticking water level switch, which controls the water level, or a blockage in the hose to the switch, or a trapped or split hose to the switch. the hose in question is about 6mm in diam,and goes from the sump hose to the pressure switch,if u remove the hose from the preesure switch chamber, check for a blockage there, and blow down the hose to see if it is clear, u should hear the switch click if it is clear, if no click and hose is clear, then I wud say the switch is faulty.
Plz rate my comments.

SOURCE: Agitator Not Working

My Hotpoint VBXR1090B top loading washing machine quit spinning during the rinse cycle and also quit agitating. The water filled up and drained just fine --no leaks.
Here's how I fixed it in 5-minutes.

  1. Putty knife
  2. Nut driver - I used a multi-purpose screwdriver without any heads attached.
  1. Unplug washer from the electrical outlet for safety
  2. Release two spring clips holding the front panel on: Insert a putty knife 5" in from the side between the top and the front panel. Pull the front panel forwards.
  3. Unscrew 2 screws holding the top down.
  4. Lift top - it's somewhat hinged in the rear with three tabs inserted in control panel.
  5. The little red tab at the end of the lid switch should be between the lip of the opening and the top; not sitting on top of the lip as mine was.  It's thin enough steel to push it with your bare hands.
  6. Make sure when the lid closes it actually causes the switch to turn on. You should hear a click.
  7. Put everthing back together. Plug washer back in. Put your tools away.
  8. Voilà. Done. Easy.  Even a woman or a ****** could do it.

No, that is the pressure switch switching from fill cycle to agitate. It should be a fairly load click.

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.
