Most likely the 'interlock' which prevents the door from opening during wash has failed. This is an electrical component and probably needs to be replaced...Not a big job for a tech...Good luck...Nomess
What is the GE part number it ?What is exactly the problem with the timer? Is i the AC timer motor or is it the contacts? You may be able to disassemble the timer & repair it.
Ebay is also a source for older parts.
Hi! When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
I also have the same problem. I have got it to work by unplugging for a day and night. When I plug it in the next day it works like new for a couple days and then back to the same old "door locked" problem when the door isn't locked........BIG HEADACHE!!!!
