It sounds like the switch that controls the water level is stuck ,thereby telling the controller that it is already full of water, causing it to start agitating right away.
Give the top of the console panel a good tap, this may release the switch if it is stuck.
If this does not work, then possibly the pressure hose is blocked that controls the switch.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

It takes more than 3 hours to complete a cycle


Hello there:
When the cycle doesn't advance, or it takes a very long time to complete a cycle.
!st, check the timer to see if it is working properly
if not replace it '
next make sure that you are getting cold water and it is getting adequate pressure.:
here is how to check 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.
Ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

Doesnt agitate or spin.


Mine is 1 1/2 years old and this worked for me

unplug from power for at least 30 seconds

turn the dial to spin but don't pull out

plug back in to power and open and shut completely so switch is engaged solidly 11 times in 15 seconds.

pull out knob to turn on

This should clear a error code.

hope it helps!

Washer won't wash


Hi!
When 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.

GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.


try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!
