Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
Hello, not an expert on the subject, but have a little experience with a ge top load that might help further you along with your troubleshooting. I discovered by removing the top control panel, there is a service guide. On the service guide, you will find the instructions to activate each mode to test its fuctioning. If I were to take a guess, I would say either the microprocessor is not functioning properly or a bad drive motor.

I had the same problem. The lid lock assembly is broken.
If you are under warranty get it replaced. If not remove the top of the washer
and take out the switch assembly. The 4 wires going in are Yellow, Red, White,
and Blue. If you short the white and blue together, the washer thinks the lid
is closed. If you short the red white and blue together the washer thinks the
lid is closed and locked. The yellow is only there to activate the
Disconnecting the switch assembly will not work.
The electromagnet locks the lid and it also unlocks the lid. It is not a matter of cutting the power to the magnet.
Installing 2 switches that connect the red white and blue is the best option if you want to remove the lock.
The first switch should connect the white and blue. (LID CLOSED)
The second should connect the red to the white/blue connection. (LID LOCKED)
After that the lid should work.
Please post a follow-up if this works for you.
