Why would a GE washer stop spinning?
The most common reason GE washers stop spinning is a faulty lid switch. The purpose of the switch is to monitor if your washer door is closed, so the main control board knows to let the washer cycle start. This is how to inspect the lid switch: Switch the washer off or unplug it.
Why won’t my GE washer spin and drain?
There may be a clog. Press Start to resume the cycle or you can select Drain & Spin and press Start. If the washer drains properly, then the clog has likely cleared. If water remains in the washer, check for a pinched or flattened drain hose.
How do you do a hard reset on a GE washer?
If your washer isn’t working, disconnect it from the power source for one minute. Afterward, plug it back in and quickly lift and lower the lid six times within 12 seconds. And this should reset the motor so you can properly start a cycle.
