GE WHSE5240 stops mid cycle frequently

Sometimes it will stop while filling and has to be restarted several times. Other times it will stop full of water or right before it spins. When it stops, no matter what part of the cycle, it will restart at the beginning when the button is pushed. Sometimes it will work just fine.

SOURCE: ge washer quits filling and spinning mid cycle

I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So 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 just happened to see that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I 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. If you are repairing a dryer, a front load washer, or a dishwasher, I suggest you
go directly to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as many other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good trouble shooting and repair nformation on most washers and dryers, dishwashers and many other household appliances. I think you'll find what you need there. Don't worry about the timer on a washer, they hardly ever go bad. I realize I haven't solved your problem for you, but I hope I have sent you to a place that will help you solve the problem. Good luck with it.

GE WBSE3120 Washer stops mid cycle

if it makes a grinding sound when in spin this is the tub seals or bearing and basically you'll have to replace the washer.very common with this ge washer,not one of ge's best product,also why it stops mid cycle could be anything,this washer has a computer board biult on top of the motor that also failed,if your having all these issues i think that washer sold for like 500 dollars,it would cost more just to repair it,i wouldn't put 5 cents into it,do yourself a favor and get a new washer.

Washer stops at the same point every time which is after it fills with water. After several hours it will then restart. Do you know what the problem might be? Thank You

Hi.

There are different faults that result in machine stopping mid cycle, hanging or not completing the cycle. Thermostat and element, pressure switch, balance switch, control module, door switch and motor must be tested. Common faults when machine stops mid cycle always at same time concern pressure switch and heating system. Some are described here (I know your machine properly stops and does not hang like the one in example): Washing machine takes a long time to end cycle.

To know what the problem is you need to run a test cycle. Instructions on how to run a test cycle are described in the tech sheet that is normally placed inside the machine. The tech sheet is usually tucked in an envelope hidden inside the control panel. It is necessary to remove the control panel held by screw to see if the document is still there. Power must be disconnected first.

Regards.

My washing stopped working mid cycle. I checked

the timer is probably sticking (needs replacement) or lid safety switch stuck open. try restarting the load and if stops at the same place it is the timer unit, if it fills up with water and than stops - lid switch.

GE adora WHDRE526EWW when started it begins to fill then stops filling and have to restart sometimes three to four times help!!!.

I wish I had a solution, I have the same issue. My WHDRE526EWW Top Load washer stops intermittently sometimes while filling up, sometimes while rinsing, sometimes while washing and sometimes while spinning. I just have to guess when it's going to stop and check on each load frequently to restart it when it stops. Sometimes I can't even get it to start spinning again and I will have to unplug it and plug it back in and then it will spin. Hope someone can help!

Stopped mid cycle

I think I answered one like this the other day...verify this before doing it....does your washer have a dial or a computer panel?

If it's a dial, then remove it and checker the disc underneath it, if it has some "teeth" missing, then it would be the timer that needs to be replaced, very simple to fix.

If it is a computer panel, you will need a repairman to help you with that, he may prefer to do it alone?? LOL

Good luck

My dryer has been difficult to start lately especially if stopped mid cycle. The lights are all on but it won't start up. Today I only used it 2 times and it was very difficult to start after pressing many...

You may be experiencing "Heat Retention" by stopping your dryer mid-cycle, which you should NOT ever have to do! If you have a minor vent restriction or if you open the dryer mid-cycle when the heat is on, this will cause a disruption in the airflow and rising temperatures can keep the dryer from restarting until it has been cooled long enough.
Check your vent all the way to the outside for restrictions/obstructions every 6 months. Clean your lint filter after each load and DO NOT stop the dryer mid-cycle!
Note: Stopping the dryer mid-cycle can also cause severe burns and even melt polyester fibers.
