I have a GE prodigy top load washing machine Model #WNSE5699A0WW. It fills fine but when it goes to agitate the machine wont do anything. I turn the cycle select knob to drain but still nothing. This happened last week and i cleaned the lid contacts and it worked fine for about 7 loads. Now the problems back. Any ideas?

Have you tried to unplug the machine, sometimes the control boards can get stuck and if you unplug it for say 30 seconds then plug it back in, it may reset itself. otherwise you may have to call someone these are very complicated machines.
If the motor runs when it is suppose to be agitating, but the agitator does not move, pull the agitator straight up and out of the machine. Sometimes this is difficult, but you can slip a belt or similar object under the agitator, attach it to a broom handle and yank up on it. Now take the bolt out of the agitator drive collar and remove it. If you can not turn the splined transmission shaft with your fingers you are in luck and should be able to just replace the can shaped agitator drive spline. (part number
WH49X10042 ) If you can turn that splined shaft with your fingers you are looking at a new transmission.
maytag washer dryer stack unit , model # lse7806ace washer fills with water but won't agitate or do anything else. I had the same problem a year ago and replace the lid switch asssemby and fuse and it worked fine until now. the switch clicks when I open and close the lid and the pink and orange wires show continuity with the lid closed.
You say its a Kenmore, but have GE Listed, so will hope you have a Kenmore. Sounds like if its just not working in one cycle, its more than likely a timer issue. Would need a model number to look up the part, but they usually range in price from $100 to $165 in price. They are not usually that hard to replace, so if you want to replace it, let me know and will get you directions, etc for that. Good Luck!!!!
