SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

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!!!

SOURCE: GE Washer WHDSR209DAWW Washer spins fine,

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.
www.do-it-yourself-washing-machine-and-dryer-repair-help.com/GE-washer-is-not
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.

Kenmore Washer 70 series Model #110.22722100 won't spin


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. OR

Magnetic Lid Switch or Other?


I would try the lid switch, part 388 on this diagram and parts list. You can check to see if this is the problem by taking the old one off and tape the two wires together and see if it will work. Using it without the lid switch creates a safety hazard. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=229918&diagram_id=21464425#d21464425

GE washer (WHDRR418GWW)(14 MO. OLD)HAS STOPPED AGITATING.WHERE TO LOOK? WHAT TO TRY?


My washer would fill/drain ok but would not agitate or spin. I unplugged the washer and listened for the motor to click. When the motor clicked I plugged the washer back in. Then I opened and closed the lid 10 times. I turned the washer to the drain/spin position and turned it on. The belt moved back and forth several times and then went into a fast spin.

WE HAVE A GE TOP LOAD WASHER, MOD.#WCSR2070T6WW. RECENTLY, IT WILL GO THRU ALL CIRCLES BUT WON'T SPIN. IT STARTS TO, BUT WITHIN 5 SECONDS, YOU HEAR A CLICK AND IT STOPS SPINNING. I PULLED THE FRONT PANEL....


  • it could be a problem with the water level switch; this switch keeps it from spinning until the water has drained.
  • or the motor itself could be bad. 
  • the click you hear is probably the start switch on the side of the motor kicking off due to the motor pulling too many amps.
