Question about GE Washing Machines
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.

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.

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.
