The most likely cause of your problem is the lid switch.

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

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!!!

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

Ge washer will agitate or spin it will fill and drain water. have change lid switch and timer


If is is a top load model, check the motor's LED light. It will blink a series of blinks. there is a tech sheet located behind the control panel. it will tell you what the blinks mean and what to check and or replace. Probably motor or mode shifter.

My GE Profile WPRB8050D fills, drains and spins but won't agitate. It makes a sound, but doesn't move. What could be the problem?


Hi,
These washer have a motor that runs clockwise and counter clockwise...for agotaion it runs one way and for spinning it runs the other...check if the motor is still getting power, but not running in the one direction...motor is probably bad...

GE top loading washing machine drains and fills but does not agitate or spin. Wiring around lid switch resolved problem for one load only. Flashing green light on motor circuit board seven flashed each...


7 blinks DOES indicate a problem with the lid switch.
Replace the switch, and inspect the wiring for cracks/wear.

Can you hear the motor spinning?
Is there black plastic chunks under the washer?
What is the model #?

GE profile washer not spinning model number wnsr3120w0ww


Do you hear the motor going? If you do, I am sorry to say it is your transmission on your washer. The website link below will confirm this if you hear a motor going. If you don't hear a motor then it could be your motor. It is very expensive to replace, I am sorry to say. The expense of the transmission is $260 plus or minus with labor. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/washer-repair/13251-ge-profile-washer-fills-drains-agitates-but-wont-spin.html

I own a ge hydro washer. It won't spin or agitate


Hi,
If you hear the motor go through the stages, but nothing is happening in the tub, the motor belt may be broken or off.

Does not agitate or spin


Let me make sure I hear your symtoms right..

The washer fills...sound like the motor is running but it doesn't agitate or spin.. then when it tries to drain it bascially gravity feeds out until there is no longer enough water to force it out?

Sounds like the belt is off, or broken.. I am not all that familiar with your model, but I think most GE's are belt drive.

If it were the agitator coupler, the washer would probably still drain..

Pull the front cover off of the washer, you will see the belt and pulleys, make sure it is A: still on the pulleys, and B: tight.

If not, loosen the four bolts on the moter, put the belt on and then slide the motor towards the rear to tighten it.. then tighten the four bolts. They may simply have not tightened the bolts on the motor from factory and the motor slid back loosening the drive belt.

GOOD LUCK!!!
