Does it spin properly?

Washer will not agitate or spin until the lid is closed. The problem is probably the switch that the lid contact/activates. Sometimes the switch is bad, sometimes the lid is not pushing the switch good enough. See where there is something on the lid that pushes into a hole when it closes.

If you hear the motor running, it is a broken transmission coupling

Check th below link for coupling replacement

Check power to the motor when the program controller is switched on. if there is power but no motion then the motor is faulty . If with a capacitor drive check for fault or replace.
However if there is no voltage to the motor then check the program controller for fault.
Make sure that there is good connections and all inputs are good. Make sure the inlet valve is working to trigger the wash once the water level pressure sensor switches on . So these inputs must be checked for the motor to start working.
Check this out.

    Your comment indicates that you must look out for a loose connecction inside. This is bigger evil as we will end up mentioning all the parts to checck. so checck all connecctions, boards and switches and sensors.

Agitation very weak turning only one way


It appears your clutch assembly has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

I have a GE model WHDRE526E1WW washmachine.The complaint was it would not spin. I checked the agitator coupler and the washmachine agitates but won't spin or fill with water. I suspect it may be the...


Try suspecting the tub end of the water level tube being plugged with " goop " so that the washer thinks it is still full of water, thus will not fill or spin. Take the front panel off by releasing the push in clips at the top of the front panel, in the seam where it meets the washer's top. Now, find the tube at the left side of the outer tub and pull it off the tub. Clean it out or cut off an inch (don't do the cutting thing more than one time) and replace after using a thin wire to clean out the tub end of the attachment. To help prevent this from re-occuering, every few months, fill the washer to the lowest setting with the hottest water, no clothes, and several cups of bleach, and run the longest cycle you have (with no clothes, of course). Make sure to rinse out the tub on a higher water level before you wash a load of clothes.

Kenmore washmachine will not fill with water


If the unit is agitating with no water in it, you will need to replace the pressure switch( aka Water level switch) it is located up inside the control panel and has 3 wires and a hose on it.

Good Luck!
