Unhappy GE washer will not agitate or spin.
Model Number: wjrr4170goww   Brand: -brand-   Age: Less than 1 year   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I bypassed the lid switch and was able to run a test load with no problem.
When my wife attempted a true load it would fill, not agitate or spin but will drain. I hear the timer clicking. The belt seams good. Could it be the timer. When this first happened the machine started rocking. After that episode she started to ack up.
What could all the posibilities be?

Try operating the machine with the front cover off. See if the motor is turning or trying to turn. If you feel comfortable doing so, try to turn the belt when the machine is trying to agitate and see if it will start agitating.

Let us know what you find out.

I turned her on and she filled with no problem. When she was surpose to wash she didn't. I tryed to turn wheel, it felt as if she klicked in to gear and started to also turn the agitater. She did not turn freely. Could it be the timer? Thanks for your help. I'm at work right now but will check email all day.

I do not think it is the timer, sounds more like a jam in your mode shifter which acts like a transmission. I assume the timer runs once you get it started.

Keep trying to get it going and it may work itself out. Also, are there any lights blinking on the motor? This machine has diagnostic built into the motor with code by the number of blinking lights.

Good luck.

Default I did see a blinking light.

Yeah, a funny place to put it but that's what they did.

Here is a site that will explain the codes and the process to you.

Let us know what the diagnostic is telling you.

Default Thank you for the help

OK; can't do anything until I get home; maybe I can go home sick, don't think so.

Thank you for your help. You will hear from me again; thanks.

This is so cool thanks.
