I think it might be the lid switch. 8e3407e.jpgas you can see it can fail mechanically and electrically. To get to the lid switch you remove the front panel firstf373b4d.jpgthen you can remove the top and access the slid switch.

It is most likely the timer, you can buy the timer here: http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Timer/WH12X10121/824430 or copy and paste the timers model number to ebay to see if you can get one cheaper there.

it could be your timer on the machine has gone out. If you have moved the washer and now you are experencing the problem there could be a reset switch that needs to be checked. On my top loader mine was doing the same thing after moving it, tipping it over to carry can get it off level, check your owners manuel . If the timer is out that can cause it to not cycle and not agitate or spin. Check the leveling issue before ordering a timer. Good luck

Under the agitator is a drive block (number 310 as shown here). The agitator snaps on to it. Inside it is splines. Since the drive bell is plastic them splines will wear smooth and as a result she won't agitate. Grab hold of the neck of the agitator and snatch it off OR loop a belt under the agitator and twist a wooden handle around till the agitator releases. Then remove the drive bell and replace that puppy.

hello there

Although there are a few leaks common to all brands, most brands have leaks that are peculiar to their design. GE, Whirlpool, Maytag, and others all have common and well-known leak areas. After reading this section, see the chapter about specific brands for details.
A common "leak" zone is not a leak at all; the wall drain backs up and overflows onto the floor. This is commonly misdiagnosed as a leak. It can be difficult to diagnose; the problem may be intermittent. Depending on how badly the drain is clogged, there may be a little water or a lot, or it may only overflow every second or third load. While diagnosing a leak, do not be too quick to write this diagnosis off.
If you suspect that your drain is backing up, but you can't quite ever be there at the right time to observe the overflow, try this: wrap some toilet paper around the drain hose just above the wall drain pipe. If it backs up, the paper will get wet. Even if you're not there when it happens and the paper dries out, it will have crinkled up, and you'll know your drain's backing up.
If it isn't the drain, run the machine with a full load. Without moving the machine, get right down on the floor and look under the machine with a flashlight. Try to find the general area where water is dripping to the floor; front or back of the machine, left or right side.
Open the cabinet and look for mineral or soap deposits where there shouldn't be any.

Trace the deposits in the natural direction of waterflow (against gravity or centrifugal force) back to the source of the leak. Fill the machine again and run it through a cycle or two. Be patient; use your eyes and your brains. There is no magic, easy way to detect a leak.
The usual places are:
WATER VALVE: The guts of the fill solenoid valve sometimes will corrode. You may see water leaking from, or rust on the top of the solenoid. (See figure G-7A) Since the valves only open during a fill cycle, this may appear as an intermittent leak. The solution is to replace the valve.
PUMP: Usually from around the pulley seal. Some washer pumps have a hole that allows water to weep out when the seal starts to go bad. The solution is to replace or rebuild the pump.
BLEACH DISPENSERS: Bleach is VERY hard on plastic parts. If the bleach dispenser gets old and brittle, it can crack or break off, and the flush water can leak out.
