Question about GE WWSE5240D Top Load Washer
My washer stops after filling up (it doesn't go through the wash or spin cycle). From reading some of the FAQ's it seems I may need to "reset" the motor. So how do I take the back off the washer?
Unless it a old ge like 15 years or so the back dont come off .. your access the inside for takeing of front panel of the washer

That would be your lid switch that has went bad. Remove the console caps, then remove the two screws that hold it down (sometimes these screws are in the rear of the console) Rotate the console out towards you gently, then fold it up and over the top of the unit. You see 2 gold colored hold down clamps on top, and either side of the unit. You will also see a wire and disconnect going down through the cabinet on your right hand side. Disconnect these wires (be sure unit is unplugged) and rotate the whole cabinet towards you. You remove the two screws that hold the switch in place and a 5/16" screw underneith that holds the ground wire. Unclip the connector from the rear top of the cabinet and remove the switch. Be sure to bring your whole model number 110.************** when you get the new part, there are two of these, and they look the same except the wire ends are different. Good luck Jim

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

Kindly remove the back panel of the unit and check whether the belt is properly fixed if it is ok means check the wire connection if everything is fine. kindly check the motor humming sound once the water is filled if you find the humming sound means kindly replace the motor
