Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer
Posted by Anonymous on
The agitate is a slow speed on a two speed motor. That said, there are several things
which can cause this. I have seen a bad connection on a motor plug do this.
This can often be seen as a dark spot on the semi- clear connectors.
Also a missing point on the timer (They can burn shut and pull off the contact). One way
to test the timer is to see if the washer will agitate on other cycle settings.
Third would be the motor itself. I haven't seen a partial failure ever.
One last thought, If you have a two piece agitator, the "Dog Agits" may be bad,
If you can grab the upper portion of the agitator and it turns freely back an forth, then
they have worn out. They are about 4 dollars. Take off the top plug/softener cap and there is a
bolt (usually 7/16th) that unscrews. Loosen this bolt counter clockwise and remove upper
assembly, The center part containing the agits can be removed and should be very
obvious as to their reassembly. Hope this helps.

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.
