Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
This is a common problem and while it can be caused by a variety of malfunctions the most typical cause is a damaged lid switch. Look for a plastic pin attached to the bottom of the lid near the front opposite the hinges. The pin aligns with an opening in the top rim around the tub, this is where the switch is located. You can attempt to manually actuate the switch by inserting something (preferably non-conductive) like a plastic pen into the opening. This most likely will not work because the switch is probably physically damaged. To repair/replace the switch on most machines the chassis has to be removed for access.
