If the motor is NOT running - it is likely a simple lid switch problem.

FIND IT HERE

You can test the switch as being defective by simply jumpering the 2 wires together.

This is a safety device - so should be replaced asap.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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 fr

I dont think this is a problem with the motor or inverter board.
Check if there is a control device in the machine that is stopping the motor half way through the wash cycle

My ge wjre5550h1ww wont spin. everything else work up to that point


Might need to be reset. 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. Service Manual and MORE HERE

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

Wont spin


1.The timer control may not be advancing to the spin cycle
2. The most likely problem is a damaged coupling between the motor and the tub. If this is the problem, your clothes are not being washed either. Check to see that the agitator is working when the wash cycle starts.
