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.

Thank you for this site....

I have a Kenmore 700 series washer and it fills with water then stops. It's NOT my lid switch. I have tried to find someone with the same washer and same problem and can't find nothing. Can someone please...

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.

Washer fills with water then stops

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:

These repairs are pretty simple if you're comfortable with a screwdriver and have a little mechanical ability. You can save a good bit of money over a service call if you try the repair yourself.

Good luck, and thanks for asking here. If this solution has given you what you needed, please take a moment to rate it.

My whirlpool thin twin filled with water and stopped!:(

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.
