Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

HotPoint Top Loader model # WLW1500B

Washing Machine will not switch cycles. Will continue to run same cycle continuously. I found this out by accident when it stayed on the same cycle overnite. I can manually switch to next cyle, however, it will not move on to next cycle on it's own. I have never had a problem with this washing machine, if it is an easy economical fix would like to fix it. I have unplugged, turned knob thru complete cylce and replugged in several times, does not fix the problem. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

If you hear clicks then I'd have to say it was a mechanical timer. the timer has a small motor on it. a complete timer including its motor will run you about $120 but a replacement timer motor will be about $35.00

My washer will not switch from one cycle to the next


I understand that your washer is not advancing and stuck on one cycle. If you provide a Model and serial number, it will be helpful.

My washing machine fills up with water but does not continue the wash cycle. Sometimes when you slam the lid the washer will continue the wash cycle to the end. Other times the washer stays filled up...


Sounds like the lid safety switch is either out of adjustment, or needs replacement.

Most washers will fill with the lid open, but no continue a cycle where the drum or agitator spin, unless it senses the lid is closed.

Washer stops between wash and rinse, and stays full of water. ld code


see this steps and fix it. God bless you


Lid Switch Assembly

If the washer stops mid cycle the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly

If the washer stops mid cycle the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Water Inlet Valve

If the washer stops mid cycle the water inlet valve cold water side may have failed. Most washers have a cold water rinse and so if they can't fill with cold water they just sit indefinitely waiting for the cold water to enter. If there is cold water to the water inlet valve and the cold water works in other parts of the cycle - or to make warm water - the valve is not the problem.

Main Control Board

My whirlpool washer periodically gets stuck on rinse.. the water continues to run but its only about half full so it must be draining. My water bill was over $100 last month, please help.


check the lid switch, if it isn't working right the machine will not enter the spin cycle, also the timer may be going bad, it could stay stuck in between the rinse fill and rinse cycle
