Question about GE Washing Machines
It stops at the correct level. i've changed the timer, same thing. Lid switch has continuity when closed, pump can operate if I by pass timer and supply power directly. selecting different settings doesn't help. still doesn't help. could it be the start relay? how do you check the pressure switch?
You have a bad lid switch. If the lid switch or lid switch circuit is open the motor is not going to run. Trace the lid switch wires and look for any breaks or loose connections. If that circuit is good, then you have a bad capacitor on the motor circuit or the motor is bad. Here is a link to the motor kit should you need it.

My suggestion is to go get a new door switch for your washing machine.
Secondly, open up the front of the machine (you will need to take the top of it off.). In front of the washingmachine you will see two big hoses. One is your washer tub inlet valve, and the other is your exhaust valve. When you disconnect this, be aware that you will get a whole tub of water onto your floor so be prepared.
There is two snaps that holds the pump that these hoses are attached to. (Make sure your power supply is disconnected.
Look inside of the pump. The other day we had someone's wire to a bra, stuck in it, and that caused the pump to lock up the machine. I had to remove the wire and put the pump back on.
If you have the pump off, and can plug the machine back in safely, turn it on, you might hear the motor spin. If it does, put the pump on after you clear it of debris. Make sure the snaps are on snug like it supposed to. Put your hoses back on properly. If it is off a small amount, water will drip.
assemble your machine back together and see if this works. If not, a service tech will need to come out to see what is the problem besides this.

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- -!

Your program controller unit is working but it must be ensured that there is output on every cycle to the desired output controls. So the inlet valve must work and the motor must run when the water level is triggered by the level controller. So use a meter to check before we can suspect the controller.
