Good day,
That is almost always due to a bad lid switch. An excellent tutorial follows, however, Be a aware the screws holding down the top console may be in any of 3 locations. Front left and right bottom corners, front left and right bottom covers but hidden by end caps, that have to be unsnapped first to uncover them, and lastly, on the bottom corners but on the rear.
As well, the lid switch comes in 3 flavors, so you will need to have the complete model number, or the switch assembly in hand when you go to purchase it.
The machine is a product of Whirlpool so you can buy it at any decent sized appliance parts house.
It isn't necessary to go to Sears unless it's handier for you.

My GE washer G153 was making a loud noise when draining/spinning out. Next load filled up with water and done nothing else. Now machine turns on but will do nothing.


have an electrician check out the agitator control module. This unit controls the agitation action of the machine and gets power when the tub fills to the desired level and switches over.

Kenmore washing machine won't agitate?


You are referring to the "agitator dogs". Does the unit run during the wash cycle put the agitator does not move?

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

    Washing machine fills, but will not agitate, drain or spin


    Coupling broken which joins the motor to the gear box. Look and see or listen if the motor is running then if nothing else is working coupling is broke, easy to replace.

    Washing machine quits after filling


    I believe you need a new belt. The weight of the water is to much for a loose belt that is connected to the agitator.
    2. Make sure nothing is blocking the safety shut off located on the machine.
