Question about GE WHRE5260E Top Load Washer
When I turn the dial the indicator lights come on for about 15 seconds but when I push the Start button nothing happens. Does not seem to matter what setting is used. Machine had a similar problem for a while. If I moved the cycle selector back and forth it would start working. Now nothing. I tried to put it in diagnostic mode (hold start button and rotate selector 180 degrees) but diagnostic mode does not appear to work either.
the belt might have come off of the tub take it back apart and look underneath and see if the drive belt is loose or on the floor when the tub came loose it probably slipped the belt off before stopping.

The help that you gave me was completely wrong. The support ring was okay. I solved my problem by buying a new timer and control knobs. The teflong 'gears' were worn out so the knobs rotated freely.

We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I
thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to
replace the knob. However, replacing the knob turns out to be easy.
Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you will get easier access to the retainer clip. You can use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or $10, depending on the source.
Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However, the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.
Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!

Hi, I had the exact same problem. If you take out three phillips head screws at the bottom of the front bottom panel. Pull the panel down and off. Behind on the right is a white plastic circle. If you turn it counter clockwise it will unscrew and you can pull out and remove all sorts of debris from it. Be careful if the washer is full you get wet as it will drain through the opening. Since then I/ve had no problem and I found about a dollars worth of change in the filter for my trouble.

My EWD1477 was doing this a year ago and I fixed it. Then it started
doing it again a month ago and I seem to have cleared it again.
Firstly, remove the drain hose from where it is inserted into a laundry
sink hole to make sure it is not blocked or sealed in with sludge.
Secondly, make sure the machine is empty of water and clothes and then turn
the machine to off with the Program Selector Dial. Then turn off the power at
the socket and remove the power plug and leave for five minutes.
Step 1: put the plug back in and turn the power back on.
Step 2: turn the selector switch to the right (Whites/Intensive). The green light of the Start/Pause button
should be flashing and the green lights on for Prewash/wash, Rinses and
Spinning. Don't press any other buttons or change any other settings.
Step 3: press the Start/Pause button and wait for the machine to empty
any excess water. Press it again immediately after you hear water flowing into
the machine OR two audible clicks. The machine is now in pause mode with the
green light of the Start/Pause button flashing. Only the green light on the Prewash/Wash
button should be on. Leave it in pause mode for 30 minutes and then press the Start/Pause
button to recommence the cycle.
Step 4: If the Start/Pause button begins flashing, water stops flowing
into the machine and the three green lights mentioned above are back on, turn
the Program Selector Dial back to off, wait 10 seconds, and repeat the process
Step 5: If when you then turn the Program Selector Dial to
Whites/Intensive and hear the two audible clicks, immediately press the
Start/Pause button to set the machine in pause mode. Wait 30 minutes. Then
press the Start/Pause button to recommence the cycle.
Hopefully the cycle will run without a problem.
