Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer
This is because of a bad motor coupling. This video will show you how to check. Note: you do not have to take off the pump, just tie it off; if you do take it off be prepared for a lot of water.
This is an easy repair.
Thank You for contacting fixya.com

SOURCE: Washer won't spin or drain
I took the easy advice first. One guest said it was the lid switch. So I opened the lid and put a clothespin in the hole and then leaned the lid on it and guess what??? It began to drain and spin perfectly! PHEW... that saved me some time and money till I can get the switch replaced. THANK YOU "guest" from August 11th!!!

This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

i also had the same problem, and it ended up being the coupler. It was not hard to replace, it cost me about 19.00. I didn't follow full recomende instructions. I tipped the washer backwards. Removed the drain pump and the motor itself. Then I removed the old coupling and placed the new one. The washer is working like new...

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!
