    I have a GE super capacity top loader. (6 months old) It was always going out of balance even though I'd load it evenly. Then it was like the inside drum was rubbing against the outer one. I took it apart - didn't see anything wrong - put it back together and now it won't agitate or spin. The motor sounds fine, the belt is tight, no oil on the floor. It fills and goes thru the cycles and then drains fine. Not sure what to do next. I probably voided the warrenty by taking it apart. oops.

Lift the lid up and down a few times , just before it closes you should hear it "click", if not its not recongnizing the door being closed ,

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

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!!!

SOURCE: -no agitation

Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,


All functions operate normally except the machine will not agitate
.

The agitator is driven by a couple of different methods. The first is the agitator is splined and slips onto the matching splines of the agitator shaft from the transmission. The second is the use of a bell coupling which is splined to the agitator shaft as well and the agitator snaps onto the coupling. If the agitator does not agitate, first remove the agitator and watch the agitator shaft to see if it is working properly. This wil require a small load setting of water and the machine set to run. If the agitator shaft is working properly, it is either the splines on the agitator or the bell coupling that is defective. If the agitator shaft does not work properly, the problem is in the transmission.

Check for a failed capacitor under the control panel It is a start/run capacitor that the motor needs to start running. The motor will hum and if left will eventually burn out.

Check the drive to the drum and check the paddle.
It is possible also that there is no output to the motor for the wash cycle and if so the control panel board is a suspect.

My roper top load washer model rtw4440vq fills with water but wont wash, spin or drain


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Kenmor top load Washer, Wshr fills, agitates, wont spin or drain


The Lid switch is the most common problem with what you have descibed.

some of the lid switches are located in the control area and some are on the right side center lid area and their is a hole where the lid has a plastic pin that presses it.

Agitator doesn't agitate. Fills, spins and drains


Unfortunately, that sounds like a transmission issue. Power is getting to the trans, or it wouldn't spin, but the other part of the trans that causes agitation is broken.
