Top loading washer that won't aggitate, or rinse.

I have a top loading washer, 13 years old. I have never had a problem until now. The washer tub fills with water, then begins to aggitate then stops. The dial slowly goes around as though it is completing a cycle. However, nothing is happening. Sometimes the washer will begin to aggitate then stops after a few seconds. Then at the end of the cycle on the dial, it will spin and drain the wash water out, completely skipping the wash and rinse cycle. It leaves the clothes really damp as well. What is wrong?

Without knowing more details, and considering it's age , my guess is that you have a disconnection (or a loose wire) to the solenoids under the tub. these solenoids activate the clutch system that pulls it into agitate and spin modes. it might be the solenoids, but rarely do both go out at the same time. it might be the timer contacts or connections behind the control panel. or, it might be the timer its self.
try unplugging the unit and check all the connections.
hope this helps jay

I have a GE toploader washer. The model # is WBSR1060T (VVSRV1040V, & YVSR1040V were also on the washer too) the washer keeps filling to the max setting no mater what the water level is set on, also...

Remove the front panel of the washer by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips, located in the seam between the front panel and the washer's top, about 2 inches in from each side. With an empty wash tub, remove the small hose on the left side of the outer tub and clean out the inside of the hose. Replace the hose. Test.

Will not spin and then when I try to start the cycle over all it will do is aggitate. It is also overfilling and spilling onto the floor. It is a top loading GE washer and is just over a year old.

sounds like the water level switch is not working pop the front cover off and see if the tube on the left of the tub is still hooked up. to remove front cover use a putty knife and slide between thee top and the front cover you wil feel the knife stop about two inces from each side push in on the place where it stopped and pull out on the front cover
