If the washer fills normally, but stops when it gets to the spin cycle, this could be a common symptom of a defective lid switch. If you try opening and closing the lid and do not hear a distinctive "clicking" sound, your lid switch may need to be replaced. The lid switch is located on the right-hand side of the lid opening with a small slot. It is activated by a plastic piece called a “lid strike” on the lid itself. Make sure the lid strike is not broken off. This will keep the switch from not working. If the switch is not activated, it will allow the washer to fill and maybe agitate, but will not start the rinse or drain cycles. If you diagnose it and wish to attempt the repair yourself, the switch costs about $25 (part number 3949238) and is fairly simple to replace. You can locate it at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number in the "Searched by Model" block and you can find it under the "Top and Cabinet" heading as Item number 11. The lid strike costs about $11 (part number 350733), and can be found under the same heading as item number 20. If you go to my profile and click on "Tips and Tricks" I have a posting listed on how to replace a lid switch.

If your washer fills and simply does not agitate or spin, and a loud rattling noise can be heard, you may have a defective motor coupling (part number 285753A). It can be located under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump" heading as item number 13. I also have a posting explaining how to replace a motor coupling. A new coupling costs about $15 and is also very easy to replace. NOTE: The washer will still drain if the motor coupling is bad.

If the diagnosis is incorrect, please post back with comments and describe your symptoms a little more in depth, so I can give you a more accurate solution. I hope you find this information helpful.

No spin cycle


This is usually caused by the pressure switch. Here is a link with the other possible problems. To check the pressure switch follow the link to the video. http://appliancehelponline.com/topwashernospin.html

My Kenmore Top Load Washer 22712100 will not spin clothes. What is the problem?


It sounds like your drive belt is excessively worn. Note that some machines will (barely) agitate with a worn belt, but when subjected to the demands of a spin cycle, a worn belt will slip indefinitely.

Manual claims machine has ability to spin out water but there are no options on the control panel


There are different models withing this line by GE. There is one model that have a "Drain & Spin" cycle on the main cycle selection knob, but on the higher end models, you'll need to use the "Rinse & Spin" cycle.

This will add some water to the washer, but the basic cycle will give items a quick rinse and spin.

If you're trying to use just a spin cycle to wring out towels, etc. and you don't have the "Drain & Spin" cycle, (which you shouldn't based on your higher end model #), just use the "Rinse & Spin" cycle and it'll do a nice job of getting out a lot of moisture from your clothes, towels, etc.

I have this same washer in my own home and refreshed my memory by reading my manual (again) to see that this is what you need to do, to spin out stuff.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Actually, I think I do remember having one do this before, and I believe on these GE models the spin cycle goes through the water level switch, so if your water level switch is sticking, then it won't spin, thinking its still full of water.

Here's the water level pressure switch for your model:
