GE Washer trouble
 
I have a GE washer mod WBSE2090A2WW that will not agitate or spin. Motor is not humming, clicking, etc. Any ideas out there before my wife divorces me? I would get someone to come and look at it but there is noone within 50 miles. Thanks.

Timer contacts burnt?

Door open safety switch?
The air tube that tells it when its full of water?

Is there a way I can test those?

I don't know how to get to the pressure tube to blow on it on your particular machine...you should be able to see it from the underside, about 6-8 inches long clear tube, going straight up and down next to the basket.
Use test light on switch at end of that tube while you blow on the other end, if possible.
You may have to remove assembly.

The other, get to the switch, right on top, under door edge, where the post on the lid goes into the hole, and test with test light (or bypass switch with jumper wire) when tub should be agitating or spinning.
Not sure how to get to backside of switch on your machine.

I used to rebuild wash machines, and the air tube was the problem more than once (dirty, plugged, broken).
The switch on top, not so much.
