SOURCE: GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

Hi my GW709 7.5 smartdrive excellence won't fill with water and won't agitate if I manually fill it , help me please


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

My candy GOFS262 washing machine is filling the drum to the top with water on every cycle but doing nothing else after that, the clothes jst sit there in the water, I've left it to see if something...


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.
Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate 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 won't spin or agitate 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.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Hi,
3 Flashing dots (display) - Water flow problem check for closed valves, dirty filters, water level, pump/wet end operation/defective pressure switch.
If your spa has been off for a while its likely something is blocking the lines.

Washer will not spin or agitate Washer will fil and pump water out motor will not come on Have replaced the motor and the lid switch After replacing the motor the washer worked ok for about 4 or 5...


This is sounding like either a timer or a water level switch problem. I would elimnate the water level switch first. Here is why..... You had to tip the unit to change the motor. Tipping the unit would ensure that the small tube that runs from the bottom (side) of the wash tub to the water level control pressure switch cavitated. Once this is clear the water level control was for a while able to sense proper water levels and the diaphragm inside the pressure switch cycled normally. If the sens line had a pin hole in it or the water level control pressure switch contacts have a problem it will present the symptom you currently have.
I cheat.... I hook up an equal sized tube to the water level pressure switch and add pressure and release pressure orally to force the pressure switch to work. (Automotive vacuum line works like a charm!) If it works by physically forcing it to work then the timer is fine. The Pressure switch is probably ok also. The sense tube running from the presure switch to the tub would be the problem. With all water removed... (drain hose lowered too to empty the machine) tip the unit again. Then see if it will fill and agitate on a small load. Also check to see if it spins. IF it agitates and spins... the sense line if most likely the problem. (pin hole chaffed etc)

There is still a remote possibility of the Timer causing the problem OR the contacts inside the water level pressure switch as the problem. If you can find the tech data sheet inside the console there should be a wiring diagram. Check the water level control for power in and out both with water level reached and empty. If the contacts are working on the water level control pressure switch... your probably looking at the timer as the problem.

GE Spacemaker Washer/Dryer. Model # DDPI380GAMWH. Water won't stop filling. It continues to fill during all cycles. Fills during agitation. Agitates inproperly. It agitates in short pulses as water...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. This sounds like a problem with the water level switch in the washer. It controls the amount of water entering the tub. It is probably defective. You may want tomake sure the switch is getting power first by testing the wires with a voltage meter.

My GE WCSR4170D AWW top loading washing machine will not stop filling with water. i can get it to agitate when i blow into the air line hose attached to the water level switch. BUT it never stops filling...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You probably have a bad water level switch. As for the agitation, the drive motor controls the agitation, spinning, and draining. It is possible for the machine to not agitate, but yet spin and drain. The motor runs clockwise and counterclockwise. It may be bad and if so, will need changed.

I own a ge hydro washer. It won't spin or agitate


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 wcxr1070a washing machine. fills with water


Check the water level switch and the plastic tubing to the switch.
Sometimes soap scum stops up the plastic hose and the water level switch does not close to send power to the timer.
If the plastic hose is good and the water level fills and stops replace the water level switch.
