If the problem with your washer is that is not starting in any of the cycles that you try it on, you will need to check the following parts until you find the parts that are causing the problem.




The Wall Outlet

If the problem with your GE washer is that is not doing anything in any of the cycles, in other words the washer is dead, the first thing you need to check is the voltage at the wall outlet.

The easier way to check the outlet is by connecting a good working hair dryer to the outlet. If the hair dryer works ok, the problem is in the washer. If the hair dryer doesn’t work, then the problem could be a blown fuse, a tripped circuit breaker or a bad wall outlet.

If the problem is with the wiring in the house, you need to get a license electrician to take care of the house wiring.

Taking It Apart

To fix a not starting GE washer, the first thing that you need to learn before you try to fix it, is how to take it apart and how to put it back together properly. Once you know how to dismantle the washer, the repairs becomes easier to do.

If you need to check the timer, the water temperature switch, the water level switch, or the motor speed switch. You need just open the controls panel. If you need to check the motor, the pump, the clutch, or the transmission. Then you need to open the controls panel and remove the top and front panels.

The Power Cord

If the problem with your GE washer is that is not doing anything in any of the cycles, in other words the washer is dead; the problem could be a bad power cord.

Disconnect the cord from the wall outlet, and examine the cord plug to make sure is not broken or burned. Open the controls panel and disconnect the cord from the wire harness. Set your multimeter on the lower scale to read ohms. Take a reading for continuity on the cord.

The Timer

If the problem is that your washer won’t do anything in any of the cycles, the problem could be a bad timer. The timer is the brain of the washer. It is use to turn on and off all the electric parts on the washer.

The contacts inside of the timer open and close thousands of times during the life of the washer causing wear and tear on the contacts. When the contacts burn, electricity can’t flow to the intended electric parts, and the washer can’t do the intended job.

The Motor

If your GE washer filled to the selected level, but the motor won’t start running to make the washer agitate, the problem could be a bad motor. 

The motor in your washer is the work horse of the machine. When the motor won’t run, the washer will not agitate or spin.

Sometimes the motor could start running ok, and after 20 to 30 minutes the motor could overheat and stop running.

It is hard to explained how to check & replace the motor with just words, just watch the not starting GE washer videos below to see how it is done.

You will need to make sure to watch the videos a few times until you know how to fix a not starting GE Hotpoint washer. Never assume that a part is bad without checking it and make sure it is bad before replacing it.

Another thing that you need to do is to learn how to check, remove and install the parts before starting to buy replacement parts.

Make sure that the company that you buy parts from give you a good return guarantee in case that you may need to return any parts.

WE recommend  Repair Clinic  for their 365 days return guarantee

Also take the purchase slip and the old part and put them in the box of the new part so in case you need to return any parts you will know where the box and the slip are.
