Hi, open lid , look carefully there's a slot where you can activate switch, use something none metalic, like pen and press to activate.

GE profile washer wont fill all the way with water. Can only wash 2 pants and 2 shirts and its set on extra large load.


A lid switch doesn't regulate water capacity and if the lid switch fails, the machine will not execute a complete wash cycle. If the washer functions but only at partial water fill for the selected load level... then the problem is likely a clogged pressure switch tube or a malfunctioned pressure switch. Got mine used online - fixed the very same issue.

Ge profile wpre6150k1wt washer does not complete cycle. washer stops with tub full of water. Will not start again. tried unpluging to reset. this worked a couple of times but not working now


Hi

First make sure to test the lid switch assembly, you can jump it to test it. If the lid switch and motor is also fine then the control board should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The tub won't spin or agitate. We had a service repair person who came out and said it was the motor. We purchased a new motor and have installed it. The tub still won't spin or agitate so it was not...


Hey..

In this case there several tips to fix this problem. One of this tips is to test the lid switch first.

Test the switch for continuity using a multitester. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of infinity. Depress the button on the lid switch and the reading should change from a reading of infinity to roughly zero. If it does not pass both of these tests, the switch should be replaced.
Some lid switches also have a fuse, you can visually inspect the fuse or test it for continuity with a multitester. If the fuse is bad, replace it with one of the same rating.
The lid switch ensures that the lid is closed before enabling the machine to spin or agitate. This feature was added after serious injuries resulted from people reaching into an operating washing machine.

Test the timer control
Test the centrifugal switch
Test the water level switch


Inspect the motor coupler
Inspect the driver belt(belt drive only)
Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
Test the motor
Inspect the pulley
Test the transmission

This tips are useful if all of this tips are fix.

Good luck!
