Question about GE WWSE5240G

1 Answer

Machine fills but does not agitate normally.

It appears the machine is doing some agitating but at a very gentle cycle only. It does spin and drain fine. I bought it new used from some guy in the city and he said it worked fine, he lied. It looks like its really new even had the plastic still on the knobs and face of the controls board. I am handy but thought to ask for some possible repair advice before I drive back to the city looking to deliver this machine back to that jerk.

It may apear that not agatating when you lift lid
try a load in it and see if machine extracts dirt and watch drain water as it goes through cycle
the agatator is a 2 part thing and the top part rachets around as it washes pushing on the top of the load to stop washing floating

HELP!! Washer machine wont work. Doesnt drain or spin. Clicks to drain and spin but nothing happens, the timer still counts down as if everything is fine.


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

If the machine starts, fills and goes through its' agitate cycle fine, the problem is likely not in the motor or transmission.

This type of washer uses a reversible motor. When turning one way, the machine agitates the clothes.

When the timer gets to the spin cycle, the motor reverses, drives the pump (directly from the motor) for a period of time and then goes into spin cycle.

This appears then that is is either the connection to the motor itself or the timer.

The timer is driven by a separate motor on the control panel so if the contacts for the spin cycle are worn, the timer will move but the motor won't turn on.

GE Top Load Washing Machine -- Agitator will not cycle


Agitator's don't spin on wash cycle.

I would suggest washing the clothes without soap until they rinse clear. If you have hard water, the soap will not easily rinse out of clothes, or off of you when you use soap to wash or shower.

Reduce the amount of soap you use in each wash if this is the case. It sounds like your washing machine is working right.

Agitation issues. Everything else appears/works normally.


I just encountered the same problem. I think the operation of the machine is such that the motor turns one direction for the spin cycle, and the other direction for the agitate cycle. I am replacing my motor, as I think i have a bad winding on the reverse. I will let you know.
