SOURCE: GE Washing machine won't spin in rinse cycle

Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.

SOURCE: GE WBXR2060V1WW won't agitate...

There's a part under the agitator(which lifts off if you pull up from the bottom evenly on two sides) called the "Air Bell Coupler" that attaches to a metal toothed motor shaft with one bolt. More than likely the plastic teeth have stripped off from this coupler, preventing it from sitting tightly on the shaft, thus causing the agitator to not "agitate" properly. You can get this from www.partselect.com. PS1517844 KIT - AGITATOR COUPLING
Cost is $7.15 plus shipping.

Good luck!

SOURCE: GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,

Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

Washer won't agitate with clothes in. Will agitate when empty with water


It's a whirlpool top load and 17 years old.
I checked the lid switch, water level switch and they are okay. I replaced the motor coupling. The old one was chewed up and crumbling.
When I put everything back together and turned it on to check if it would spin, I heard a buzzing sound and after a few minutes there was a burning smell.
What should I check to diagnose this problem? would help to have make or model numbers to show age of machine

Washing machine won't fill. i filled it by hand with water, it won't agitate either, only spins.


The inlet solenoid is probably bad. And it won't agitate unless it fills and stops filling automatically.

Washer won't fill


Hi pollystepp.

Without knowing the make and model, a basic answer to this problem is that the fill switch has gone bad. If your machine proceeds to agitate and spin without water, the washing machine 'thinks' it has water in it and this happens when the fill switch is stuck open. Rarely, the tube that goes from the tub to the switch may be clogged which may cause the switch to remain open.

Good luck from Detroit, MI.

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer. Model # DDPI380GAMWH. Water won't stop filling. It continues to fill during all cycles. Fills during agitation. Agitates inproperly. It agitates in short pulses as water...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This sounds like a problem with the water level switch in the washer. It controls the amount of water entering the tub. It is probably defective. You may want tomake sure the switch is getting power first by testing the wires with a voltage meter.

The cycle does not go


The typical problem is a bad water pump. Your washing machine would still do the agitation part, though. It would just stop when it came time to drain the tub. Replacing the water pump every so often is almost routine maintenance on old machines. It's inexpensive and fairly easy.
If it won't agitate, there's another possibility. You have a safety mechanism that keeps the washing machine from doing the spin cycle when the lid is open (you wouldn't want your kid reaching in there while the machine is spinning). I think most machines will agitate with the lid open, but some machines might not - while there is a slight safety risk, many people want to add bleach, laundry additives, etc, while the machine is agitating.
There should be a pin on the lid that goes into a hole and pushes the safety latch when the lid is closed. If you're missing that pin, you need to replace it (that would be a good problem, since the replacement pins are very cheap).
Once the machine fills up, push a screwdriver into the hole a little ways and see if the machine starts working.
