GE washer wJR4170G1WW wont wash or spin What

GE washer wJR4170G1WW wont wash or spin What could be wrong? I did forget to set the machine back to LARGE load after doing a SMALLl load so I'm pretty sure the stress of washing without enough water caused this. Is it some kind of belt? And how difficult is this to address?

    its not the changing the load size dial that I thought would break it. I figured I burned something up or broke something by washing a load that was too heavy with minimal water and resrticting free movement, I heard it make some louder than normal noise on the last load but not enough to make me check it. Its not loud now while it's going thru the cycle, so I know it's not the gears. And I dont see any oil anywhere. Let me try you're suggestion and I'll let you know! Thanks!

    just tried your advice...no luck...=(

    Had a repair guy out today. It was the Circuit control...I think thats what he called it...on top of the motor. Or maybe just the circuits on the control. Anyhow, since they don't sell those separate, said I'd have to get a whole new motor for over $200!! After some research, I found this to be a common problem on these GE washers before they are even 2 years old! Maybe even on all GE's..not clear on that. Just a buyer beware!!! cheaper to buy a new one after service call, parts, tax, and labor!...wow.

Changing from large to small load will not cause a problem. this could be a control panel issue. unplug machine, the try rotating load size dial back and forth a few times, plug machine back in and try

    nothing would break because of load size selection, all that does is control the amount of water in the tub. will not harm anything other than the cleanliness of your wash

    yeah, repair guys these days charge a fortune, thats why its best to try playing with the machine before calling them. watch for made in china machines

My washer wont lock and now it does not spin why


The door has to lock as a safety to allow the machine to run. There is a switch on most locks to tell the machine to power the motor.
I would guess the lock solenoid has failed, or something has happened to the latch for the door.

On spin cycle tub won't spin.


on the Ge model as yours the first thing that need to be check is the door switch, i found them damage very easy b/c of the door lid that fall down on it.
so the first thing is to open the front panel and bypass the switch (WH12X1043)=23$ if that is not the problem then look under to see if the belt got bad(WH01X2026)=8$
dont forget to rate my help
