Take back off the washer if belt is tight its probably the carbon brushes on the motor they set into either side of the motor with one spade connector on each one remove these and if worn replace them you can buy them from most appliance repair shops they should be under atenner

Tries to aggitate but wont everything else works


Sounds like the transmission is out. If it fills up and will pump out while spinning? Then more than likely that is it. Or could be the belt underneath. When it aggitates the belt go's in one direction then spin out it go's the other direction and turns the transmission and drum.

My GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A Washer does not spinning for drying and it smells like burning rubber. But it does aggitate for washing. It is a belt issue or could be some electronic device issue?

Washer aggitates poorly when it is loaded


Check belt tension. Motor capacitors weak. Check the spin mode. Finally check the motor.

Top loading washer that won't aggitate, or rinse.


without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay

Kenmore series 70 washer won't stop agitating when lid Is lifted.


I have a Series 80 and when I lift the lid it does not stop aggitating when in wash mode. When I lift the lid it does stop spinning when in rinse mode. As designed.

To stop wash-mode aggitation at lid-lift, using the existing lid switch and other electrical components, is not easy and not recommended. I can think of a way to do it (triple-pole lid switch) but I will not detail the idea .. for safety concerns.

To stop aggitation, simply use the main settings dial control. You'll save money and possibly prevent a fire hazard!

GE Front Load Washer Model#GCVH6260F-Problem with no washing, spin or aggitate function but motor works fine...


try cleaning out the filter - it's behind the bottom panel (three screws to remove) you will see a round disk - unscrew it and pull out the filter. I have to clean ours every six months - it's too bad GE didn't put it in their manual, that this needs to be cleaned periodically.
