The GE serviceman repaired my machine approximately 40 minutes. I paid $189 for the issue to be resolved in 5 minutes. This is no exaggeration.
The serviceman arrived at 2:50pm and finished at 2:55pm. It took another 5 minutes for me to write the check and he was gone.
My recommendation is...
- Purchase the GE service plan prior to calling GE to repair the service. A 1-Year service plan is $40 and 2-Year is $75. It costs $99 just for the serviceman to come to your house.
- Fix the issue yourself. Of course, this only applies if you are handy. I am handy and I tried to fix the problem myself. I just couldn't figure out the location of the access panel.
The access panel is on the front. This can be removed in less than 20 seconds. The notches on the access panel is in line with the edging of the washing machine door. To remove, slide in a flat object like a flat-head screwdriver. Wiggle up and down on each side until door comes loose. Lift up door and set aside.
The water pump is on the lower right in the front of the washing machine. If your wash machine has any water in it, you want to use a shop vac to empty it out. The serviceman used a clamp to stop the water from running down. A little water still came out but he used my shop vac to get it up. It was less than a cup full and I had a 1/2 tub of water. Afterwards, he stuck his fingers in the water pump and pulled out the item that was blocking the pump.
Guess what was blocking the pump? The item was my two-month old daughter's sock. He recommends using a washing bag.
Remember this solution is for GE 315 model that is a top load washer. This will most likely work with similar models. I knew my water pump was still working because it hummed during the rinse and spin cycles.
Good luck and I hope this saves you $189 or any other fees.

Reach down to the bottom of the tub and pull the agitator straight up and out of the machine. Sometimes this is a bit difficult. If so, slip a belt or rope under the agitator, attach to a 2 x 2 or similar object, and **** it straight up and out of the machine. Now, take the bolt out of the center part with a 1/2 inch wrench. Pull the upside down can shaped nylon part straight up and off. If it does not come off, you can crack it in parts with a hammer and chisel if needed. Try to turn the splined shaft with your fingers. If you can turn it, you are screwed. (need a new transmission) Most likely you will not be able to turn it with your fingers, which is good. That means that all you have to do is replace the agitator drive (sometimes called an air bell coupler) part number WH49X10042, reinstall agitator, and you are ready to go. Cheap fix.

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.

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!
