This is a typical problem. What you have is a broken lid switch. This is either located on the door way of the washer or under the control panel. Not a difficult thing to change.

Agitating during water fill up


HI WHEN EVER THE AGITATOR WORKS WHILE FILLING THE TIMER IS FAULTY

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer. Model # DDPI380GAMWH. Water won't stop filling. It continues to fill during all cycles. Fills during agitation. Agitates inproperly. It agitates in short pulses as water...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This sounds like a problem with the water level switch in the washer. It controls the amount of water entering the tub. It is probably defective. You may want tomake sure the switch is getting power first by testing the wires with a voltage meter.

My wahser just stopped working it filled with water and then started agitating and then all the sudden stopped please help


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

    Kenmore 80 series top loader washing machine 110 volt was plugged bu mistake into 220 volt outlet. Machine will no longer fill water or agitate but when put into spinning it will spin


    First off I can tell you the water valve coils are probably cooked / burned out. With POWER OFF / unit unplugged you can remove one wire from each of the coils and check for resistance across the coils. No resistance = open coil = no fill. NO FILL = no agitate because the water level pressure switch is trying to sense the water level that never rises. If there is no water then there will be no agitation.

    If you really want to see if it will agitate in it's current condition you can fill the unit with a garden hose on a low level water setting and fill it a little over half way to see if it will agitate. (You will have to remove the hose and close the lid)

    If that works then the water vavle would be the culprit causing your condition. The wire wound in the coil windings of the water valve is smaller in thickness than a human hair and would easily fail if 220VAC was put across a 110V winding.

    Agitator starts before water fills. When adjusting


    There may actually be more than one setting on the diaphragm control, or you may two diaphragms each with their own setting control. I hope this helps you! Good luck!

    Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


    Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
    Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
    After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

    if it agitates without water then the fill pressure switch is stuck , this will lead the unit to beleive its full already.
