Question about Washing Machines
My 1 year old GE Profile washer will fill and then not move into the wash cycle. This happens if the washer is unplugged, or if there is a power outage. The manual says to unplug the washer, wait two minutes, plug it back in and hit start. This does not work. If I hit start, the washer fills with water and then will not go any further; as if it is stuck on pause. I can leave it to sit for hours or even days, and suddenly it will kick on without any explanation. Is there another way to reset the electronics? It has been sitting for almost 24 hours. I have unplugged it 100 times with no result.

yes you can and is easy, disconect the machine from the ac outlet, open the top to acces to the water level switch, check the thin hose atach to it, if its broken fix the hose or chage for a new one and thats is, if not, change the water level switch and you gat it..good luck

get your screw driver and lets start.. first unplug the machine from the outlet, you have to access the water level sitch so remove the tab and there is the bandidt, knock him with the screw driver and if this not funcion replace it..good luck I dont tell you to check the thin hose in the water level sitch becouse you said its fill all right.

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks
