Go to a laundromat as this is not a quick fix.

If your dryer doesn't tumble, check these:

Belt
Motor
Door switch
Belt Dryers have a drive belt that turns the clothes drum. If the belt breaks, the drum stops rotating. Then you need to replace the belt, and often the idler pulley, because the pulley tends to wear out at the same time.

My Ge Hydrowave doesn't know what cycle it's in. It agitates when in spin cycle and doesn't spin at all.


Hello,

That problem with your washer sounds like its the mode shifter solonoid,To check it use a multimeter set to ohms and measure for appx. 98 ohms on that solonoid coil.

What you can try first though is to reset the motor control baord and that remedies so many troubles with the Hydrowave washer. This tip i wrote will tell ya how to reset the motor board.

Why won't my washer spin? It is balanced & the load is small and balanced also.


Their is a strong possibility a momentary power glitch has tripped the motor inverter. You can reset the inverter. To Reset the Inverter board on the motor push the timer knob in so the washer is idle or if digital have the machine in the off position. Unplug the machine for one minute. Plug back in and raise and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds. This might take more than one time.

After resetting the inverter board, put the machine in a spin cycle and see if it runs. I took the time to write a note about it for Fixya: How it works GE Hydrowave washer
I included a service manual there also. Hopefully you will be able to reset it. If you can't a fuse may need to be replaced. I included details there also. Thanks for using Fixya.e4e3910.gif

Pumps in/out water but does not spin


Depending on the type and model, control board failure(micro-processor) which unfortunently with a few models (not all) of GE have been an issue. If your model doesn't have a transmission(Hydrowave models) and isn't very old, I recommend contacting GE answer center 1-(800)-626-2000 and ask them for help ! (It couldn't hurt) Or, your transmission has failed and needs to be replaced.
GOOD LUCK!

GE WHDRR418 top load washer won't spin at high speed; the washer does the complete cycle, and agitates in both directions and does physically spin, but it will not go into the 'high speed' spin that...


we can eliminate the motor and the switch since that part is working. sound like your timer might be faulty, timer make everything work in persistence cycles, if its goes bad sometime it tend to jump/skip cycles.

No agitation in ge hydrowave rinse cycles


you must unplug the washer for just 1 minute open and close the lid 10 times and plug it back in and put it on a light load cycle and let it wash with empty load. shoul work fine after that

Agitator - is it working right?


there is slipping in the transmission. older machines used a pair of electrical solenoids to shift between spin and agitate. newer machines use the motor direction to engage the transmission for agitate and reverses for empty and spin. GE service phone: 1-800-848-7620
