GE WJXR2080T2WW Washer Fills with water - then stops
I was given a GE WJXR2080T2WW. It fills up, but will do nothing else. The lid is down. I have tried every cycle. It won't run or even drain. It doesn't make a sound. Any suggestions what this might be.
I got this machine because my old GE WWA8324GALWH kept overflowing. Now I''m wondering whether the problem with the older machine was easier to fix.

Older machine would have been easier to fix ..remove front ck small hose to tub left side remove hose and clean crud from end as much as possible if still overflowing replace water level control..new machine may be timer or lid switch not closing properly remove front to acess lid switch on right side

If your washer will not agitate or spin take a look at this page GE Washer Not ... If the washer fills up with water then doesn't do anything at all and you do not hear ... if this were the problem, the water would not stop running, over-filling the tub.

I have a GE "Spacemaker Laundry" (Stackable) model number ... Today it filled withwater initially then stopped working all together when it ... Bad motor, something jammed/seized up holding the motor back from running?
If you are sure its not the lid switch, then next would be the water level switch. Once the machine fills, it should switch an internal set of contacts to make the washer run. Last and worst case scenario would be a dead motor.
There are a couple of things that might cause this. One is the water level switch. The other is the lid switch.
On most washers, the lid switch only keeps the basket from spinning if you have the lid open, but on others the machine won't agitate either. So if the machine thinks the lid is up, it will just sit there.
While the machine is filling, the timer stops and waits for the level switch. If the switch isn't working properly, once the machine is full of water the timer doesn't start again. And the machine just sits there.
I would try the lid switch first as it's more likely to be the trouble. Here's a website with some good information on how to get at the parts and how to check them:
Well if it fills then it needs the lid shut to work. So if the lid is shut it hits a lidswitch and if that lid switch is broken then nothing will work washer wise right? As far as the dryer that may be a blown fuse but nothing on the washer could stop it from running cept maybe a bad cord or breaker.
