Washing machine quits after filling

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?

I believe you need a new belt. The weight of the water is to much for a loose belt that is connected to the agitator.
2. Make sure nothing is blocking the safety shut off located on the machine.

Washer only spins


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.

My ge prodigy wpse5290 won't stop filling and won't drain, spin or agitate. I replaced both the fill switch and control panel (twice). What else is there?


replace the hose that leads to the fill switch. there is most likely a pin hole sized hole in it not allowing the air pressure to build up and make contact witht the fill switch

GE Profile Prodigy Machine not agitating


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.

Kenmore Top Load Washer


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!!!!
