Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WD63 Front Load Washer/Dryer
I have a GE washing top load washing machine, and it has filled up, but won't switch to the next cycle. I have attempted the troubleshooting suggestions from the manual, with no luck. Right now, the tub is full, but the machine just won't move to the next cyle, to agitate, rinse or spin. I have tried different settings with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.
My kenmore washer will fill up but it will not agitate.

I had a similar problem with my Centrex (now defunct company). I found that by emptying the water (lay the exit pipe down to ground level or into a bucket) the machine would then kick over to the spin cycle. I am assuming it has something to do with the water pump not pumping out the water and subsequenttly, not being able to move past the rinse cycle.

Check to make sure the machine is not filling and draining at the same time. If it is the drain tube is not high enough and is siphoning water out of the drum.

Check the lid switch...if the machine thinks the lid is open...it will just sit there after filling!!

The lid switch may have gone bad. It's a $20 part that you may be able to replace yourself. You may be able to check it. With the lid open and the dial set to agitate, try inserting a something PLASTIC like a stirrer or ballpoint pen cap into the slot where the lid cam engages the switch. It may be possible to manually turn the switch on with pressure UP, in the direction the cam would normally contact.

Hi sounds like the bushes have gone. You can pick up another couple for around £12. If you take the top off, you will find them located either side of the motor. Replace these and all should be okay.

Could be a sticking water level switch, which controls the water level, or a blockage in the hose to the switch, or a trapped or split hose to the switch. the hose in question is about 6mm in diam,and goes from the sump hose to the pressure switch,if u remove the hose from the preesure switch chamber, check for a blockage there, and blow down the hose to see if it is clear, u should hear the switch click if it is clear, if no click and hose is clear, then I wud say the switch is faulty.
Plz rate my comments.

SOURCE: Agitator Not Working
My Hotpoint VBXR1090B top loading washing machine quit spinning during the rinse cycle and also quit agitating.
The water filled up and drained just fine --no leaks.
Here's how I fixed it in 5-minutes.
