WHRE5260E1WW (GE washer) will not empty after wash or advance to spin cycle..then after a while shuts down
I I unplugged the machine to reset the electronics...no help. This thing works fine up to the point where it needs to pump out water and spin. Just sets there till the darn thing finally shuts off. Is it anything short of replacing the expensive electronic controller? One last thing anyone know where is the cheapest plase to purchase parts? Thanks in advance for all ypur help, sam

Hi! When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem: It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer. It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee

Saragary, It sounds to me like the safety switch for the washer lid is faulty or just out of adjustment (you'll find an arm sticking out of the lid that corresponds to a similarly shaped but larger hole in the jam of the lid and that is where the switch actuator should reside). Or, your timer might be at fault, since it completes cycles once you manually advance to the next one. Eliminate the safety switch as the possible fault before moving on to the timer itself, as the timer is more costly. Good luck.
