Hi,
If you hear the motor go through the stages, but nothing is happening in the tub, the motor belt may be broken or off.

GE washer model WWA8955 agitator won't spin. I can see the screw at the top of the agitator turning back and forth and hear the it running but that's the only thing moving. The spin cycle works. ...


Hello,
The agitator connects the part (transmission) that makes it agaitate by a piece in the bottom of the agitator and that connecting part has teeth on it that interlock on the transmisson shaft. That connecter is stripped so when trans. agiates that peice is slipping. That coupler needs to be replaced. This video here will show you how to replace that part. The part number for that peice is WH49X10042 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at,

Won't spin


If a washer will agitate and wont spin check the lid switch. Lid switches are designed to not allow spin on most washer but will allow agitate. Safety feature.

If you need further assistance please feel free to comment me back.

WHDRR418G1WW WASHER WON'T AGITATE OR SPIN, NOT MAKING NOISES. FILLS AND DRAINS FINE.


sounds like you have a broken lid switch on the washer, maybe someone slammed the door or placed or stood on top of the washer, a broken lid switch won't allow washer to go into spin mode is a safety device so if is on spin cycle an someone sticks their hand it the machine stops an not breaks your hand.

broken lid swtich

good luck leave some feedback thanks!

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

We had the same problem with our new GE washer.......the repairman just left. It's the circuit board on the motor that failed, causing the motor to stop working. GE will replace it under warranty.
