Please check the lid switch. That is usually the problem I always find on my ser calls.
Be sure and check the plunger on the lid to see if it might have been broken off.
Put a screwdriver in the hole and see if you hear a click.
You can also tape the two wires together at the lid switch and it
will work
Good Luck!

Why would my Amana washer not do anything but fill up with water. Nothing will function at all on all the cycles but the fill. It doesn't even click on the timer when you try to set to any setting exc


Hi Kirby
First... Caution
Because your dealing with water & electricity it can be lethal to fiddle around inside. That said...
Washing machines are controlled by a master timer unit, usually mechanical, but rotated by an AC Clock motor. If the timer is not getting voltages to the various Switches around the "timer unit" or "clock motor" then the individual selected functions won't work.
Manually Rotating to a particular function then Activating the On/Off Push/Pull switch should start things happening even if timer motor is dead. So
If your OK with AC electrical goods then open it up.
Connection wires may have fallen off or something simple. A multimeter is your best friend here. Look for the big rotary clock behind the main control dial. Listen for the clock motor running. The main Push in & out Button is the On / Off switch. Check that its got AC on the input wire & switches across to the other wire when the knob is pushed in / out. This may be the problem...

You can always call an appliance repair technician!
Good Luck

My the front load washer model gcvh6900jww has the red lock on the display. I accidentally held the start button for a few seconds and it locked. I tried holding the start button again for up to 20 seconds...


  1. Found This HelpfulSometimes something will go wrong in your washing machine that will cause it to lock up or stall. An overloaded washer or a brief power surge can cause this. The washer may not drain or spin properly, or it may stop the cycle in the middle of the wash. Another cause may be that the washer was stopped before the cycle was able to complete. In this case, the washer will spin and drain over the next 24 hours, but it will stall before reaching the final spin. GE has two simple methods to reset the controls
For Newer Washers:
    • 1 Unplug the washer.
    • 2 Twist the control dial around the cycle settings.
    • 3 Place the dial on any setting other than the final spin.
    • 4 Ensure that the water line is securely attached to the washer.
    • 5 Plug the washer back into the wall (making sure it has gone at least 30 seconds without power).

Ours does the exact same thing. We pull it out and tip it which drains some water on the floor and then it works. It is something a technician told us ages ago, something to do with a water level switch underneath.....but its driving us mad. We have to do it on a regular basis. Does anyone know how this can be fixed more permanently. thanks.

Machine stopping mid-cycle


f your washer doesn't spin or agitate on either the delicate or regular cycle, check these:

Selector switch
Clutch assembly
Drive motor
Selector switch If your washer has a selector switch on the control panel, make sure the button for your selection is pressed all the way in, or set properly.

Clutch assembly Many GE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. This assembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, you probably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it's uncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not on another. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need to replace the entire motor.

Whirlpool Front Loader GHW9150 PW


Yes, I fixed it after 10 hours of attempting. I called Whirlpool who in turn told me to call a Tech out to the house. I talked with a Whirlpool Rep who was at our local Lowe's, she in turn called their Whirlpool Guru who told her, there is NO override or manual way to fix the lock up unit/problem other than calling a Technician.

Well, I beg to differ. I took the panel off a 2nd time, looked for a pull, which there wasn't one, so I keeped feeling around the lock from the inside of the washer. I looked for anything that would move, press together, pull down and walla, bingo, I found a piece of metal that I pulled on and it released the door!!!!!!! Yahoo, then while the door was opened, I plugged the unit into the AC, it recognized that the door was unclocked, then I turned it to spin and rinse after it started flashing the F 11 code. I knew from this site, that it meant my soap had leaked into the unit. After running the rinse cycle, I am so proud to report that the machine is back up and running!!!!!

I thought, how awful not to have an external manual release, what if a kid got locked in the unit. Yes, a kid. My brother and I use to tumble in the dryer...lol Kids do, do dumb things. So even if Whirlpool tells you it can't be done,without a technician YOU can do it!!!! I'm a 60 year old woman and proud of it....Thanx FixYa
