Washer won't spin or agitate - no blinking LED
Hi. We bought a GE top-load washer, WWSE5240G0WW in September 2007. The last wash, it filled, drained, but would not agitate or spin. There is no blinking LED light on the motor - not to say there's no light, but it's definitely not blinking. During the agitator & spin cycles, the motor is completely quiet. When turned manually, the belt rotates the basin just fine. My fear is this is a bad motor, but I'm hoping it's a fuse harness. If it were an agitator switch, would we not still have the LED light blinking?
Any input would be helpful. We hope to repair this ourselves.

If the light isn’t blinking then the fuse is most likely blown. The fuse is inline the wires under tape on the right side of the washer. The motor could have caused the fuse to blow after all that is why the fuse is there but most of the time replacing the fuse will repair the washer. If not you have a bad motor.
Oh and yes even if the switch were bad you should still have the blinking light. The only thing that will cause no light is the fuse (assuming the washer has power) or a bad motor.
There is a picture that shows the location of the fuse on this page GE HydroWave Washer Repair
