When you turn the dial the lights come on, but it will not start even when you press the start button. for quite some time it would almost always stop somewhere in the middle of a cycle normally after filling for a rinse.

The late model top loading GE washer is much different than it's original models that were so much more dependable than these newer ones are. To access the innards you must forst remove the front panel. Older models had the top pop up first but these newer models have the top bolted down. To get the top up you must first remove the front panel by using downward force on the top between the tiop and the front panel. It is not easy even for eperienced techs but cuss it a minute and it will come off. Once it is off you will notice the washer has an elecetric pump. Strings and junk get into this pump. It is easy to take apart and cleanup. The tub is suspended on 4 rods and the lateral movement is kept in check by 4 rubber cord mounted to the top called bungies. The motor and tranny can easily be accessed by removing the tub from the washer. After disconecting the power cable and pump the tub lifts out. Not all GE washers use the same motor or the same transmission method. Some do not even have a tranny. I have some GE washer service manuals.
ok, you are in the model selection part of the service mode. for 6240 I believe the model code is 3 select this and press start. normally to release control lock press and hold small I button by start button. if model selection in incorrect it can still be corrected. only difference in models is cycles matching the labels. you can tell by the time indication for each cycle if it doesnt look right then check book inside top cover
The diagnostic test is performed by using the Program Knob. To START THE TEST:
• On non-digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
• On digital display models, turn the Program Knob to start position, Touch Up. (NOTE: If the model has a timer dial that
can be rotated 360°, turn the Program Knob to start position, Drain/Spin.
• Press Pause Cancel to turn off LEDs.
• Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Option and Pause Cancel buttons until LEDs start sequentially chasing, then
We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I
thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to
replace the knob. However, replacing it turns out to be easy.
Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer
clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you can
use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will
slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or
$10, depending on the source.
Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that
engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of
these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However,
the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on
these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.
Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!
