Check the placement of your drain hose. This may be a simple issue of siphoning. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Make sure you have a sufficient air gap at the top of the drain stand pipe, and that the drain hose is not placed in the standpipe too deep. This can cause the water to constantly siphon out of the wash tub and the washer will continue to fill to try to maintain the water level.

Please let me know if you have questions, or if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

I have a GE washer model # WHDRR418GWW. It is about 19 months old. It stopped agitating and spinning. It will fill with water and the timer/knob will go thru the cycles. But when it reaches the washing...


You have what is called "agitating dogs" there are usually 4 of them at the bottom of the agitator. They have small grippers which lock onto the agitator and agitates. If the washer is ever overfilled or over time filled to heavy this will wear down the nylon teeth on the "dogs". The top of the agitator will spin off, you will see a bolt inside at the bottom, remove bolt and the agitator will pull out. Google "agitating dogs on washer. It will give you pictures for a better understanding. If the belt was broken the washer would not drain, because the belt turns the pump. These dogs are about $5 and honestly easy to install. Good Luck.

The agitator will not spin


Hi,
The problem will be in the pressure starter kindly check whether water stops after certain level and ready for washing,if it is OK means kindly check the wire connections from the operational panel to the motor, in most of the case the timer will not send signal to the motor for that kindly change the operational panel and check it

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.

WASHER WILL CONTINUOUSLY FILL WITH WATER AND WILL NOT AGITATE.


there is a small presser hose that goes from the the side near the bottom of the washer that goes to a switch on the control panel that controls the water level the hose could be stoped up or the switch may be bad
