Many washers use a reversing motor. Sometimes it will continue to work in one direction even if it won't spin in the other direction. If your washer has a drive motor issue, you probably need to replace the motor with a new one. Call a professional appliance repair person to verify this first.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect

    check the belt. The main
    drive
    motor has two distinct functions. The first function is to spin the
    basket; the second function is to reciprocate your agitator. Inside
    your washer's transmission is a crank type gear and connecting rods
    that are used to agitate the washer, with the spinning coming from the
    washer motor itself. This usually entails some sort of clutch
    mechanism. Some things to check if your washer is not agitating and/or
    spinning are:
    If you notice weak or no agitation, the splines connecting the
    agitator to the drive shaft may be stripped and need to be replaced.

    After a lot of use, belts can become worn or damaged. Replace
    any
    worn or damaged belts immediately. If you have a broken belt, replace
    it and check the pulley to make sure it's not seized.

    Sometimes the drive pulley can wear out and it won't turn the
    drive
    belt. Look for wear marks, pits, or uneven spots. It's best to just
    replace it with a new pulley.

    Many washers use a reversing motor. Sometimes it will continue
    to
    work in one direction even if it won't spin in the other direction. If
    your washer has a drive motor issue, you probably need to replace the
    motor with a new one. Call a professional appliance repair person to
    verify this first.

    The lid switch is a safety device that's there to protect you
    from
    sticking your hands into a spinning washer. If this switch goes bad,
    the washer will not work. You will have to replace it. It is inside the
    main housing for the washer, and located near the door frame.

    The coupler connects the motor to the transmission. After
    lengthy
    use, this plastic and rubber coupler can wear out. If this happens, you
    need to replace it.

    Transmission and clutch assemblies can cause agitator and
    spinning
    problems They are fairly complex, so if you suspect you have
    transmission or clutch issues it's probably in your best interest to
    call a professional appliance repair person.

SOURCE: GE Prodigy Washer: Doesnt agitate or spin. Fills ...

Hello, If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.


  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.


If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

Thanks

SOURCE: The washer fills agitate but won't spin & drain

Possible fault with the program controller unit. You need to check the program cycle outputs using a multimeter connected to measure the output voltage. On start the inlet should open and then close as the water level sensors works and then proceed to wash. So this much seems OK. Now in the next step the drain valve must open to drain off, then fill once again with the inlet working and water level being sensed. If there is no output in this section cycle then the prrogram controller has errors within the memory . You can remove the panel and reset all connectors and connections.

GE Washer WJSR2080V3WW will fill, spin and drain but not agitate.


The problem is the agitator coupler (about $ 7.00) simply pull straight up on the agitator - Give it a good tug. take the one bolt holding the coupler off - pull straight off. Replace the coupler and bolt (they are sold together). Line the agitator lines up with the coupler lines - when they line up it should go all the way down and snap back into place. and your done.
