the bottom right side of the machine there is a small access panel you will need to find something small to stick in the hole and press the locking tab in and turn it clockwise to loosen and remove the cap.
then there will be a white zip tie looking piece of placstic haning the pull it down and the door will open.
if you have a wet dry shop vac you will need to loosen the drain pump cap and keep the vaccum there to **** up any water that will com eout but remove the cap slowly until there is no moer water. then you will need to remove the plug and check the drain pump for any restrictions that maybe stopping the impellar wheel or slowing the flow of water,when the cap is removed you should be able to put the machine in a drain and spin mode and you should be able to see the impellar wheel turning.Once the unit is free of any restrictions then you should be able to start the machine let it fill up and wash for a minute.
then stop the machine and put it back in a drain and spin mode and the washer should drain out and start to spin
The most likely cause is the motor coupling, one on the motor and one on the transmission. UNPLUG POWER FROM WASHER. If it is broken your washer will fill and you will hear the motor running but nothing will happen, no agitation or spin. You will need to loosen the console, remove the cabinet drain pump and motor, then the motor coupling can be replaced on the motor and transmission. Part comes as a kit. Part number 285753a.

I'm assuming that you have a basic Kenmore / Sears top loader with a
two piece agitator. On some of them (and I'm assuming yours) the nut is
a plastic part that takes a 1/2" drive socket extension. You'll have to
hold the bottom agitator to keep it from moving and give the wrench
some (but not a lot of force) to loosen it. If the washer has never
been taken apart, there may be some build up around the bottom of the
Hi, Make sure washer is unplugged before beginning repair. Remove the agitator from inside the washer by loosening rubber nubs with a screwdriver. Then loosen bolt underneath agitator cap with a socket wrench. Check clutch assembly area for wear and tear. They can be found in the upper portion of the agitator assembly. If the dogs (which turn the clutch) are in bad shape, try replacing with a dog kit. Put agitator back on and test If its spins out on the next load you do, you're good to go. It could be one these more complex issues: Bad Wiring harness, Bad Motor, Bad Transmission, Bad Motor Coupling. Thank You for using Fixya.com
The washer fills...sound like the motor is running but it doesn't agitate or spin.. then when it tries to drain it bascially gravity feeds out until there is no longer enough water to force it out?
Sounds like the belt is off, or broken.. I am not all that familiar with your model, but I think most GE's are belt drive.
If it were the agitator coupler, the washer would probably still drain..
Pull the front cover off of the washer, you will see the belt and pulleys, make sure it is A: still on the pulleys, and B: tight.
If not, loosen the four bolts on the moter, put the belt on and then slide the motor towards the rear to tighten it.. then tighten the four bolts. They may simply have not tightened the bolts on the motor from factory and the motor slid back loosening the drive belt.
