Stacked washer fills but won't spin or agitate
I have a 2008 GE stackable washer/dryer, model number WSM2420D3WW. It was vibrating and shaking, presumably because of an unbalanced load. I opened the lid, re-distributed the clothes, and put the agitator back in place. When I came back a few minutes later, it was just sitting there. It now will fill, but then stops - won't agitate, spin, or drain. If I switch to a higher water level, it adds more water, but then stops again after adding additional water. No audible sounds after filling - it just stops.Answer
The first thing you need to look at is the lid switch. Look down in the hole that the actuator sticks into to hit the switch to see if the switch is broken out. If so replace the lid switch and if not you will have to check the lid switch with an ohmmeter to see if it is bad. If the lid switch is open (electrically) with the door closed replace the lid switch. If it is closed (has continuity) then the lid switch is ok.
Let me know if it isn’t the lid switch and we will go from there.
