Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

When I start the wash cycle the agitator starts before the water as the water is filling the washer it is agitating and then when the washer gets full and the water shuts off it will only wash for about a minute and then start spinning out. When it gets to the rinse cycle and is full of wet clothes the agitator starts first again. Even though I have the 2nd rinse shut off it still starts filling again.

Probably a stripped gear in the transmission.

SOURCE: shutting down on rinse cycle

Hi this could means that you may need to replace the washing machine bearings. Once the bearings are bad, the motor overheats and it will automatically shut down after the first rinse.

My washer is making a loud nosie when agitation starts

That is a normal sound when the transmission shifts from the last spin cycle to go into the agitate cycle. It should make a loud click sound that does not last longer than a second. There is nothing wrong with your washing machine.

General Electric Washing Machine want agitate. The washer fills, spins, drains but simply stops agitating or washing during different cycles. I have checked the lid switch, coupling under the agitator and...

The water level switch may be going bad. As the water level rises to the proper level, it switches a set of contacts inside to stop the water fill and cause the machine to start agitation. Make sure machine is empty before you replace the water level switch---it works off of air pressure from a small hose attached to it.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full

    Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
    Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
    After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

    Ge top loader washer agitator does not work

    To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.

    Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.

    No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.

    Agitator always moving

    The inner tub on some machines does rotate very slowly while filling to assist with the even distibution of the load. If the agitator is turning back & forth while in fill mode, you could have a timer or transmission problem. You need a tech.
