Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer
My GE Washer model WHDSR209DAWW just stopped. the thing is only 3yrs old.the lid switch is clicking, the motor turns in both directions
by hand the cap under the agitator is good, not stripped. the timer moves to the next phase as it should. the pump drains the water, but the motor just will not start. Please Help!
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.

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

Sounds like the agitator may be locked up due to a bad bearing or possible transmission issues. Here is a link to a page that has several videos that can help you diagnose the isse and it is very helpful on all types of repairs. Wacth these and do some tests and see if you can find the issue, if not get back with me and we can go over what you tried and what you find out.
There's a part under the agitator(which lifts off if you pull up from the bottom evenly on two sides) called the "Air Bell Coupler" that attaches to a metal toothed motor shaft with one bolt. More than likely the plastic teeth have stripped off from this coupler, preventing it from sitting tightly on the shaft, thus causing the agitator to not "agitate" properly. This may also be causing it to lock up and not turn if the little pieces get broke off and jammed.
