SOURCE: My washer does not wash the clothes or go through the spin cycle.

It sound like a belt problem. Try to move tub manually first, in case it move smoothly -open the front panel, the belt should be between the motor and the drive pulley (lower front). In case it torn or not in its place, you should replace it. In case it doesn't move smoothly - maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub and prevent tub's spining. If this is the situation, it should be removed. Good luck !!

SOURCE: Won't agitate or spin

Try slamming the lid a little bit to see if the safety switch is stuck or something. It is probably a child safety thing preventing agitation or spin to start. if the switch is not working properly, then the washer will "think" that the lid is still open. It is to prevent some small child that is unsupervised from falling in it and getting killed. Some machines will still agitate even with the lid up and some wont. There is a little small hole somewhere that has a little switch that the lid hits. That could be the problem. If not I don't know of anything else myself to do since im not an appliance man. Just hope that this helps.

SOURCE: GE Washer agitates when I try to fill it up with water,wont fill

You have a bad water level switch or a clogged plastic hose that goes to the water level switch.
Use a putty knife to open the front panel. The clips are at the top right and left sides just below the top lid. Push in on the clips and pull out on the panel.
On the left side of the tub you will see the air dome with aplastic hose connected.
Remove the hose and insert a small wire into the air dome hole to clean it out ouf soap scum. Then, blow through the hose and listen for a faint click in the water level switch. Also check the hose for a hole or being pinched.
The set the timer for spin and run a spin cycle then retry the water level and wash cycle.

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!!!

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

Washing machine fills and agitates but won't spin or drain, just hums.


When the machine beeps it is giving you a code with the 8 wash progress lights along the top. Some will be on some will be off. With OFF = Zero and On = 1 Can you give me the 8 digit code. An example is (01001001) It is normal for the pump motor to get very very warm. Make sure you can spin the pump impeller easily.

Won't spin


Take the front panel off by using a putty knife to push in on the two clips at the top edge of the front panel. Now, pull the thin tube off from the left front side of the outer tub. Cut off about 1.5 inches of it and replace. Test. This tube tends to plug up right there. It's really best to just clean it out, as if the problem reoccurs, you will soon run out of tubing. I usually see this problem with machines which rarely, if ever, see regular liquid bleach used. To prevent this from happening again, fill machine to the lowest water level, using the hot water, and several cups of bleach (no clothes) and run a cycle through a couple times a year. Make sure to rinse machine before using with clothes again.

The transmission might have locked up causing the motor to overheat.
