    Took hose off and ran through clog, so reattached. Took entire machine apart and put back together, now machine will not agitate nor spin?

    The machine is plugged in and the front cover is off. There is no flashing light on the motor. This leads me to believe the motor is gone.

Take the front panel off by using a putty knife to push in on the two clips at the top edge of the front panel. Now, pull the thin tube off from the left front side of the outer tub. Cut off about 1.5 inches of it and replace. Test. This tube tends to plug up right there. It's really best to just clean it out, as if the problem reoccurs, you will soon run out of tubing. I usually see this problem with machines which rarely, if ever, see regular liquid bleach used. To prevent this from happening again, fill machine to the lowest water level, using the hot water, and several cups of bleach (no clothes) and run a cycle through a couple times a year. Make sure to rinse machine before using with clothes again.

    When your washer is plugged in, with the front panel off, look at the top right side of the motor (just under the top cover ). You should see a green light which flashes. Tell me how many flashes, and if they are fast or slow.

    When you look at the motor, the C2 connector (the one on the left side) should have 120 volt across terminal 3 to terminal 5 at all times when the washer is plugged in. Can you check that?
    Note: the blinking green light I'm looking for is located a bit up and to the right side of the C2 connector on the motor, just under the cover, near the front of the motor.

Doesnt agitate or spin.

Mine is 1 1/2 years old and this worked for me

unplug from power for at least 30 seconds

turn the dial to spin but don't pull out

plug back in to power and open and shut completely so switch is engaged solidly 11 times in 15 seconds.

pull out knob to turn on

This should clear a error code.

hope it helps!

Will not go in to spin cycle

Remove agitator (it will pop off when pried) then you will find your answer. Mine was a broken tub collar to shaft.

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,

Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.
