Question about Washing Machines
My ge washer ewa5600k2ww does not agitate or spin. The lid switch is good, the water level switch is good. I was getting the rotor locked signal on the motor board. I reset the motor. Now the motor light shows the motor is in standby. Why will my washer not spin or agitate?

It doesn't spin
If your washer won't spin, check these:
It doesn't pump or spin
It pumps, but doesn't spin
It spins only with the lid closed
It doesn't pump or spin If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows:

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.

You have a problem with the motor coupling. Top-load washers use what's called a direct-drive system, meaning it does not use a belt but what's called a "motor coupling". I probably replace 5 a week because these little guys break because of 2 reasons that i've found.
1) The break mechanism is too dry and causing the basket to stop at a holt, which puts a lot of strain on the coupler.
2) They break because of over-loading. I don't think you're over-loading though because it was find for 5 straight years.
Good luck to you. The repair is kind of hard to do on your own for the first time, so I would call an authorized technician. It will run you anywhere between $90 to $120 at most.
Best of luck!

check the motor capacitor if your motor doesn't turn when powered, otherwise the "wig-wag"coil could be faulty,these coils shift your transmission for different cycles
