Old spacemaker washer wont spin

GE space maker top load washer model number wwp2000saxwh is very old. We had trouble with the lid switch six months ago but I elongated the tip or rod that trips the switch. Now, it doesn't drain or go into spin mode. I'm not a repairman but I don't want to have to buy a new washer if I can fix it. your time and knowledge is very much appreciated.

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 WJRR4170G0WW-SPIN Cycle does not work- just make sound.

My washer is 2 years old and this is 1/2 the cost I paid for it new. My review of this product after 35 years of technical experience; GE products (Hotpoint)aren't worth buying any longer.

The problem is the Motor. There is an electronic PC Board attached to the top of the motor and under the drip protector, which protects the PC Board. On this board, there is a green flashing light which displays trouble codes by flashing. Unplug the washer, remove the 3 screws from behind the control panel. Slowly pull the control panel toward you and slide it to the right to release. Inside the washer, there is a diagram with the trouble codes printed in the lower right hand corner. Everything else is self explained. Flashes indicate the problem and the solution is all written. Since I have the same problem and a technician, this is a defective product GE has discontinued and re-manufactured. After phoning GE the motor # Normal 0 WH20X10051 cost $252.25 to ship to my location.

SOURCE: Whirlpool top loading washer will not spin or

This problem is commonly attributed to a loose or broken lid switch.

If your washer fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle or drain, the problem is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

If you have any questions about this repair, or if you need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

GE Washer wont drain. Wont agitate, does nothing. Washer is part of a stackable unit about 4-5 yrs old. Checked circuit breakers and electrical and water supply. What should I check? Are there fuses inside...


If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. 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 washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Here is a link to the part you need.

Ge stackable washer/dryer wont spin-drain


This involves the spin lid switch
Twist timer very fast a few times and stop it on spin with the lid closed. Wiggle the timer to get the points to connect. Even if you
just get a little bump then its the timer.
If none of this works then it is the timer plus maybe something else contributing.
You can tape the two wires to the switch together and it'll work just fine
Also check the plunger on the lid to see if it is not broken off
If this was helpful please rate me.

GE Profile wont spin,why?


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 wiring 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 replace 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!!! Thanks for using Fix-ya. A high rating would be appreciated for your free question :)
