Washer not working after power outage

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.

    After a power failure the washer is not tumbling during regular cycles. It does spin and do the left-right tumbling whenever I start a new program. To make it spin I need to pause the program and after several minutes press the start again. Test mode 10,11,14 will not run. No error reported (E00). Seems like the circuit board is out of order. Searching the internet I have found that it is a common problem with this machine. Any idea how to fix this board? Reset? Reprogram?

    My Maytag has a similar problem. It will shut off at random times, but has yet to kick back on by itself. I cannot complete a cycle. It was plugged in when the power went out.

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

loosen the back screws and push the top forward, its got clips in front that just shift in, then you mast carefully lift the top due to the wires and vacuum pipe that control the level, just unplug the supply

You may have a water supply problem. There is a mesh screen in the hoses where they hook to the washer. Make sure they aren't clogged up

1.5 year old ge profile washing machine will not agitate or spin


Timer seems to have gone bad. Manually move the timer to make the dryer spin. If you get it to spin and drain then it's your timer.

Doesnt agitate or spin.


Mine is 1 1/2 years old and this worked for me

unplug from power for at least 30 seconds

turn the dial to spin but don't pull out

plug back in to power and open and shut completely so switch is engaged solidly 11 times in 15 seconds.

pull out knob to turn on

This should clear a error code.

hope it helps!

GE Profile will not run cycles. Runs water continuously.


OK, i would do a hard reset by unplugging for 2 minutes. if the problem still exists, this is defiantly a malfunctioning relay. it will have to be replaced.
