GE WWSE5200BWW Topload Problem

I have the above mentioned model, and of coarse I am 42 days out of warrenty. Washer seems to have the same noise in a few differant cycles of the wash. Best I can descibe it is if I put the washer on spin only, water drains completely, then when it attempts to spin (counter clockwise) It sounds like the motor is kicking in and out as it tries to spin. Huge draw on all the lights on that circuit also. The problem happens in several places during a whole wash cycle. It also seems to be a timed thing, because if I wait a few minutes, then it will go right to high speed spinning with no noise at all. Can anyone help? Chuck

How do you run the diagnostics?  I could not find the instructions inside my washer.

I have a GE Top Load washer model # EWA 5600G. The washer idiot light indicates the washer is in the wash mode, however nothing is happening, tub is full of water, but no adigation....motor is not...

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand based on your post you have a GE topload washer, model EWA5600G, correct ?

The most common problem which manifest in the manner you've described is the lid switch. I don't know what you've done aside from what you mentioned, "Tub spins freely, belt is on, motor is not running." but I'd suggest checking the switch.

The motor should only come on in the spin cycle if no water is present...if it is indeed full of water and ready to cycle then it will come on as well.

If you do not have motor action present at anytime no matter where the cycle is, I'd be suspicious of the lid switch. Have you tried by-passing the lid switch and testing it in spin ?

As you can see there are many possible scenario's that may prevent the motor from operating, a timer, a lid switch, a pressure switch and of course the motor itself. That's getting ahead of things though.

Let me know what results from by-passing the lid switch and perhaps that will get us moving forward again. Good luck.

I have a GE topload washer, I think the model # is WBSP1060T( there were three model # on the washer-VVSRV1040V & YVSR1040V were on there too) any way the water will not stop filling no matter what...

as to the filling issue this would either be the pressure switch or the hose that goes to the pressure switch to the tub has come off if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank this opinion it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick
p.s the starts agititating is normal when the lid closes it is engaging the lid switch

Changing the belt on my GE washer

Take a 3inch plastic putty knife and slip it appx 2 inches from each side between the front panel and the top assy. There are 2 spring clips in this area. If you take a flashlight and look between the panels you can see them. When you pop off the panel it will come forward and lifts off the bottom clips freely. Install it by just setting in the bottom panel and pushing on each top side of the front panel.
