A Kenmore washer that won’t spin or remains stuck on the spin cycle likely has a defective lid switch, door latch, drive motor, stator assembly, or drive belt. A quick fix would be to look for blockages in the agitator or manually turn the drum to force the appliance to go into a spin cycle.

A Kenmore washer that’s not working, won’t cycle, or keeps sensing likely has a defective timer, lid switch, line fuse, user-control display board, door lock, or water inlet valve. Users can temporarily resolve the issue with a master reset or by manually shifting the washer to the next cycle.
The GE washer repeats, won’t rinse, or stops at the rinse cycle because of clogging of pipes, having a faulty timer, imbalanced loading, or using the excess or wrong type detergent. Faulty wiring and failure to read the manual are also possible reasons.
A Kenmore washer that either won’t rinse, keeps rinsing, or is stuck on the rinse cycle likely has a skipping timer, malfunctioning cold water supply valve, or clogged drainpipe. The issue can also result from simple issues such as using too much detergent or overloading the washer.
A Kenmore washer that won’t drain properly likely has a clogged pump. Try checking the drain to see if there’s any foreign object obstructing the valve or opening. If not, the drain pump might be damaged and need replacing. Those with newer washer models can also try performing a master reset.
When a GE washer lid keeps locking, unlocking, or clicking, the problem could be anything from a faulty lid lock to a failing lid lock sensor. Clicking locks often signify a snapped plastic component or insecure lid attachment. Replacing the lid lock, latch, or sensor may solve the problem.
A GE washer that keeps tripping the breaker, beeping, or balancing might be suffering from electrical issues. Additionally, loose clothing or small bits of debris can cause your washer drum to register as off-balance. You may need to contact an electrician or repair technician to fix these problems.
If your GE washer doesn’t fill, first confirm if the household water supply is on, then inspect the cold and hot faucets to ensure they are both fully functional. Low water pressure, failed inlet valves, temperature selector switch issues, and water-level pressure switch may be some perpetrators.
A GE washer won’t wash cycle properly if it overheats or when the control board has an electrical issue. To solve a faulty wash cycle, let your washer rest for at least a day. If the problem persists, reset the machine’s motor, replace the timer, or have a GE technician service your washing machine.
A GE washer might fail to work due to a faulty spin belt or a clogged water pipe. Blown fuses, power surges, and dead wall outlets are also common culprits. Troubleshooting the GE washer is the best way to discover the precise reason why it’s not starting, turning off, or turning on.
