Tony could you give me a little more info? Is this a machine you just got or one that's been running just fine till now? Is it a top loading machine or a front loading machine? Because if this is a top loading GE for example i'd say, see if the agitator spins freely in both directions if it is and if it does i'd give you some instructions on an easy repair. However if you said it's a whirlpool top loader i could probably give you a link to a youtube vid that'll show you step by step how to fix it. Etc. Etc. Thanks.

  • tony mendoza Jan 13, 2013

    its a GE. do u think it might be the lid magnet

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 13, 2013

    You can do a fairly reliable test of the lid switch just by opening and closing the lid. Should hear a distinct click when lid first opens and a distinct click just before it closes.

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 13, 2013

    Is there a panel on the front of the machine that looks removable? It might have visible screws at the bottom, but it may not.

  • tony mendoza Jan 13, 2013

    No. it doesnt look removable. but there is no distinct click upon opening or closing the

  • B.H. Countryman Jan 13, 2013

    Then it is probably the switch, assuming the magnet is still attached to the lid.

SOURCE: Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts

Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.

SOURCE: Bosch WFL2450 Washing Machine wont spin cycle

Hi there, this problem sounds as though the carbon brushes are needing replaced or infact just needing to be cleaned of dust or dirt. Its very common for the brushes to be covered in dust and fibres. Im not sure where the brushes will be on this model but I hope this helps you in someway.

SOURCE: No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains

brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

raise the main drain hose to the top of the back control head. there may be a problem with the main hose being to low and the water is gravity siphoning out of the washer.make sure the washer is off when you lift the hose up but do not remove it from the wall,you should here water drain out once it has stopped draining restart you machine and it should fill to the proper level and quit then go into your wash cycle

Frigidaire washing machine gets stuck on cycles


The cycle doesn't advance 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.

Washer constantly draining after first cycle


For the machine to keep filling it would indicate that there is a siphoning problem. Check the outlet hose is not running along the ground, it has to rise up then loop back down or the water will just run straight down the drain. If the problem only happens after the first pump out it would indicate the end of the outlet hose is lower than the drum or there is no air break around the outlet hose. (The stand pipe should be larger in diameter than the hose from the machine).
