The lid switch is probably the culprit. It sounds like it is trying to work but then stops. With the lid open try pushing down on the lid swtich to determine if it is making. You can use a pen or small screwdriver to test this. After you make it click watch the washer go through the cycle and see if this does not allow it to continue on with the wash cycle. If this works you can try to see if there is any adjustment on the lid or the switch to make better contact if not then the sewitch will need replaced and that is any easy fix. Let me know how this progresses for furthur advice.

You will need to replace the lid switch. If you could post the model number that is on the top of the machine, I will be able to direct you to the part you need and post a video to show you how do the repair.

    You need to replace the "lid switch". What is the model number that is written on the machine?

    The switch is out of tolerance and will barely make the contact to run the machine.

Cell phone gets hot


Probably due to lots of apps running in current and background sessions. Turn some of the unneeded apps off, and understand that as you use your phone the battery will become warm as it provides the current to the phone.

The problem is the pressure switch has failed or the hose is plugged up, has a hole in it. These are usually inexpensive and are very easy to replace. Here is a video this will walk you thru testing and replacing a pressure switch. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

What is the capicity of a GE WWA7600S washer


Here is the user's manual:

http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/pdf/49-9810.PDF

They never talk about weight or capacity other than

Setting the Controls

Use the Suggested Fabric and Cycle Settings guide ~ Select Rinse Temperature.

to help you make the proper selections.

~ Select Wash Spin Speed.

~ Push Cycle Selector knob in and turn clockwise to

your selected wash setting. If you wish to change setting

~ Select Water Level. ~ Pull Cycle Selector knob + START out to start the washer.

SMALL: Washer is less than 1/3 full of clothes.

MEDIUM: Between 1/3 and 1/2 full.

LARGE: Between 1/2 and 2/3 full.


This washer will pretty much take anything you can throw at it. It was a competetor of the Maytag large capacity washers. As long as you follow the loading guide above you are not going to hurt it.


Thanks for choosing FixYa,

The twin tub connected to the washing machine doesn't drain.


The laundry tub does not have adequate drain size to handle discharge from the washing machine. In addition, the kitchen and laundry area piping may not be correctly vented.

Kenmore Super Capacity stuck on rinse


Krom, sounds like the machine is syphoning. Check the drain hose and make sure there is a air gap and that it is not too far down the standpipe or drain. To test it hold the drain hose right at the drain top and see if the problem stops...Catriver...post back.
