Question about General Electric WHDSR209DWW Top Load Washer
Most likely the motor control board is defective, u can test the motor by byp[assing the control board with clip leads from a 110 volt source, only do this with great caution and if you have allot of experience doing these types of electrical tests, if u are not comfortable with this Please call Sears or some other local appliance repair service..

This is usually a problem with the water temperature sensing. If the problem was the motor it would be detected by control board, and cycle would stop with a fault code.
The fault description will be slightly different if machine is not self heating. In this case check the water inlet hose, and ensure that the dual inlet valve is OK. The valve is tested reading continuity. A dual valve can also be tested swapping hose. If the Hot inlet is bad, the machine with swapped hoses will not fill at all because warm water is filled last.
If the machine fills and heats up the water (r fill warm water), but does not proceed any further in cycling , that means that the timer board did not detect that the correct temperature has been reached.
In this case the machine keeps heating or filling warm water, and the cycle does not advance, or the machine stalls with cold water inside, and cycle still will not advance.
When this happens it usually means that the thermostat is faulty.
The thermostat can be tested by a technician reading Ohms at its contacts and jumping or opening its contacts.
The thermostat must read zero or very low impedance at room, and it will cut off reading no continuity when the limit temperature is reached.
If the machine keeps cycling , then the thermostat is not opening, or it is not reading temperature because defective.
