My GE washing machine has been working for 6 months and is now tripping switch at agitate and spin cycles. It will not spin or agitate and mainly trips with lid closed? IDEAS?
While I can't be 100% sure -- it sounds like the motor is pulling excessive start current and causing the breaker to trip.
Try spinning the drum by hand with the washing machine not running/empty -- if it spins freely (your washer is belt drive) then I'd start by replacing the motor/inverter assembly.
If the drum doesn't spin freely then you have a drive system problem somewhere.
