Well, with the help of my neighbor and his multimeter, we established that the pump is indeed carrying 120 volts.

The book says that it's the timer. Any thoughts from the experts?

If nothing is plugged , 120v to pump , and no pumping of water --- the impellar may have come off the motor shaft = a new pump.

My GE front loading washer has a similar problem: door lock light will come on but cycle won't start.  Sometimes if I bang on the front of the washer (around the area above the door latch) that would trigger it to start, but lately that doesn't seem to work anymore.  Does that mean the door latch assembly needs to be replaced?

Also, I found the latch assembly for this GE washer:

But it looks like the Frigidaire version is the same and cost almost 2/3 less:

Are these identical?

TIA

It could be ...

Your model is made for GE by Frigidaire..

Do you have a model number ? (there are a few)

Many GE parts are 2 to 3 times the cost of the same part for other brands..

Wow, thanks [user=3641]RegUS_PatOff[/user]!  The service manual is really helpful.  I went ahead and ordered the frigidaire lock assembly.  Hopefully this is all I need to fix my washer problem.

Thanks again!

I don't suppose you can tell me how to get the soap/bleach/fabric softener dispenser out so I can clean it?


Thanks!

I got the gunk out of the hose - plus $1.68, a nail, and the wire from an underwire bra (I wondered where and how I could have lost that... ).  Put it all back together and it spun.  Did a happy dance.  Threw in another load and it wouldn't drain.  I'm thinking something stuck in the pump?  I got the pump cover off, but can't for the life of me figure out how to get the pump itself off.  Help me?

Thanks!
