Hello: Its either your knob is stripped or the timer itself is..Most commonly its the knob assembly that's bad.(part# WH01X10061) I would try it first since the knob is only around $7.00 where the timer is around $140.00or so... Good luck

Washer is leaking out of overflow tube

first check the drainage pipe, the hose goes into and make sure its not clogged, once you know there are no obstructions reattach the drain hose. be sure it goes a couple of inches into the pipe but has a little space for air flow between hose and pipe. I this doesnt fix the problem the hose made need to be raised, it should enter the pipe several inches higher than the washer. Hope this helps

WHDSR209DAWW washer leaks major water during the

I asked my wife about this question, before I became to technical and scared you more then you needed to be scared. My DARLING wife told me right away that you are overloading your machine. It occured to me she may have done this a few times herself. Mind you this is 50 years of experience . When you load your machine with to many items the water is displaced and has to go somewhere, it's caming up over the top and causeing your flooding problem. After you clean up and have a few highballs to settle your nerves, you should be OK. My wife and I wish you GOOD LUCK.

WHDSR209DWW on/off button will not engage to spin

The cycle selector is not engaged onto the timer shaft. Need to remove the on/off knob by removing the plastic "U" clip. Remove the cycle selctor knob and check that the steel spring clip on the selector is fully seated. Re-install the cycle selector onto the timer shaft aligning the selector key with the with tthe notch on the timer shaft. Re-install the on/off knob.

The cycle selector and on/off combination is a poor design. Users press the on/off knob in and turn clockwise to set the wash cycle. If you're not gentle this action wears the teeth on the timer shaft and the user has to press harder and harder to set the wash cycle. This pressing causes the cycle selector to be pushed off the timer shaft and you can no longer operate the machine.

Stop using the on/off knob to set the wash cycle. Press on the cycle selector to set the wash cycle. Use the on/off knob only for starting or stopping the machine. Don't press or pull too hard on the on/off knob or you will wind up pushing the cycle selector off the timer shaft.

My washer wont agitate or

you just remove the bottom cover of the washing machine, then you can see the assembly of motor, belt and pully. check that among these parts are damaged, jammed or not. If everything is normal there is the possibility of damage to the electrical circuit. there is no power to the motor.

I have the GE whdsr209doww-

FYI, the pump does not have a valve which prevents the water from leaving the tub during wash cycles.
If you were to remove the drain line from the machine the water in the tub would siphon.
I think you are moving in the right direction by replacing the drain tube. Also inspect the other connections from the tub to the water pump and water pump to drain tube..
Good luck...

Washer fills with water but then nothing, put on spin

the agitator is not on properly due to worn parts under it. remove the top cap, then use needlenose to remove the cap underneath it. lift up from very bottom of agitator. look for worn areas

I have a GE whdsr209 washer. Stuck on filling with water.

Ok, take a deep breath and blow....
No, really...
Ok, to understand how to fix the problem you have to understand a little bit about the control part of the machine.
Ok so here we go...
First thing is the first stage which is filling the machine with water.
So how does the machine know how much water to fill, well the answer is pressure.
If you remove the front panel of the machine and look on the side of the tub, you will see a tube attached to a plastic hull.
Air gets trapped inside the hull and as the water fills the tub the pressure inside the hull increases. The tube attached to the hull routes the pressure building inside the hull to the fill pressure switch. The more water filling the tub the more pressure generated and supplied to the switch.
If the line becomes clogged with buildup or developes a leak, the whole process will not work, thus the switch will not become engaged stopping the flow of water into the machine.
How do you check for opperation of the line and switch,
well remove hose from hull and as the tub is filling with water, blow into the tube creating pressure and thus activating the pressure switch..
You will hear the switch click and the machine should stop the fill process and start washing.
Rarely but possible, the pressure switch is faulty.
Mostly, it is a clogged line, disconnected line, or line that has been damanged by rodents or pets..
Hope this helps
Good luck...

Can't fix how to take off agitator on WHDSR209DAWW

You have to pull straight upwards on the agitator. They are on that drive bell very securely so you'll have to pull like a madman. I have heard of some technicians using a belt or strap slid under the agitator to get it to pop free. But I just remove them by slipping my fingertips under it on opposite sides and yanking it upwards.
Good luck!!

My washer fills with water

most likely the motor control board is defective, u can test the motor by byp[assing the control board with clip leads from a 110 volt source, only do this with great caution and if you have allot of experience doing these types of electrical tests, if u are not comfortable with this Please call Sears or some other local appliance repair service..

Agitator spins freely as if not connected. Where

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old
man who has been making his own repairs for about
50 years. Therefore 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
discovered that more than 4,700 people were asking
for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer
repair of my own and 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. I
was so impressed with the video that when I saw all
these people needing help, I wanted to tell them
about it. If you have a top loader (washer) of the
direct drive type, this video might be a Godsend for
you. If you look at the back of your washer and the
panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove)
chances are you have a direct drive and this video
is just what you need. You can see this video at
www.acmehowto.com You will probably need
more help in determining what the problem is and
how to fix it. If your repair problem is a washer or
dryer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com
where they have very good trouble shooting and
repair information 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.
