My washer stopped spinning or agitating. It seems to go throught the timer cycle ok, including a proper drain. I removed the front panel and discovered that one of the leads to the lid switch was not connected. I soldered it back in place, but that did not solve the problem.

Also, while in the spin mode, I do not hear or see anything turning near the motor. The belt looks ok. Is it possible the lid switch is still faulty? If not, what should I check next?

Thanks

The first thing I would do is replace the lid switch (#388 on the break down diagram).

- The part number for the lid switch AP2620150


- Here are the break down diagrams for the GE washer Model WCSR2070TDWW

Gene,

I checked the lid switch it is still working. Other threads indicate the coupling could be bad. Is there a simple/easy way to check that is the problem? Is it possible the motor is bad? If so, how can I confirm before I order the part.

Thanks,
Nick

Oops, just checked the parts break out and there is no coupler for this washer. I guess either the motor is bad, the tranny is gone or there is some other switch I missed. I can access the pins connecting to the motor easily. What voltage/current should I look for in when the tub should be agitating? Which pins/wires should I check?

Thanks,
Nick

Normally the troubleshooting process starts with the most simplest parts and moves toward more complicated parts, such as, transmissions. Parts like motors and transmissions were designed to last longer than simple parts like a lid switch. With that said, let's start with the lid switch.

The lid switch on your washer is magnetic and, most likely, that is where the problem is because it interrupts power to the motor.

How did you check the lid switch?

What exactly is wrong with your washer.

Post it as a new thread, please.

Gene,

I did a simple continuity test. Disconnected the switch from the machine, ran a small current through the two pins, opened the lid and saw the current stopped.

I also checked the resistance across the motor pins. I don't recall the exact results, but I got either zero or infinite as a result. Does that help any?

What's next?

NICK if you have the front off the washer, please check to see if the motor clip is not off the shaft under the clutch . This would cause the problem your having.The motor would be spinning and the clutch not moving.

Abbie,

I assume you mean the clip below the clutch assembly. If so, then I know it is still attached. I tried to remove it last night, couldn't . I may need advice for its removal, I could always cut it off with tin snips .
