GE Washer won't start

We have a GE Washer (top load model# wjsr2080t6ww) that will not start. It's been working fine but when I pulled the knob to start the cycle it just made a buzzing noise. I tried it several times with the same result. Help.

It appears your timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

The knob is not working. It just turns without starting the washer. I have to press down hard to get the knob to turn to the cycle I want. Is there a way to fix this? GE Top Loader WHDSR109J


This is a common failure. The teeth on the knob have worn off. If you pull the knob out you will see a small clip that can be pulled off this will release the knob. Usually both pieces of the knob need to be replaced. For diagrams and illustrations enter your model # at www.appliancehelponline.com

I have an older ge prfile washer & the cycle knob does not work. how do you take it off. i have pulled it & tried to unscrew it but neither works


pull knob out and look behind it. You should see a white plastic clip. You have to pull this out and then knob comes off. When replacing knob, put clip on knob first and then just push knob on to shaft.

Cycle control GE WHDSR315 top loading washer.


Try pulling the knobs off completely and squirting WD-40 into the switch interior--work the oil in by reinstalling the knobs and moving them around. If no help, then the area behind the control panel must be accessed (pull the power plug), and the control replaced (you should have seen the mounting screws when the knobs were off).

There should be a spring clip that holds the timer knob on. It or the timer knob may need replaced. Here is a picture of the timer knob and the spring clip. Sure hope this helps and best wishes.

The timer knob spins freely and I can't start the machine or set the timer.


"Can I replace it with a new knob or do I have to buy a new timer?"

It sounds like the knob is rounded out where it fits on the timer post, or It may just be loose. Pull the knob off and inspect it. If damaged, yes, you can buy another one.

GE Washer wbsr3140d5ww water problem


Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

I have a problem with my washer
For some reason when I try to start the washer and I have it set to cold it does not work if I put it to hot then its fine
The cold water does work though because if I change the washer to a later cycle cold water comes out just fine.
So it almost seems like its the timer knob
any ideas?
Thanks
