Question about Washing Machines
I have a GE washer that will lock and fill but after 1 minute or less will unlock and do nothing can you help me out
It sound like a lid switch issue. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. Look if the switch is broken or loose. In case it looks OK mechanically, it might be defective electrical and should be replaced. Good luck!

I have a English electric washer/dryer, model EE100WD..The water fills up, but the drum wont turn, but I can hear a humming sound. I can turn the programme switch to drain the drum and that works. Could it be that the brushes need replacing, as it looks like one of the carbon brushes is broken....thanks Nina

SOURCE: front load GE wont spin or wash
I can't find your models breakdown but it sound like a bad motor. if it drains and fills you have a good pump. if you had just a bad motor control if mostly would agitate. If the motor hums then you are getting power to it.. if you have no hum you can check for power with a meter.. if no power you have a bad control.. if you have power you have a bad motor... let me know what yo find out.. krazytech

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!
