Hello my name isXXXXX will be assisting you with this problem today. Thanks for trusting JA to help you with this appliance question.

Hi just to clarify you start the machine and nothing happens except the pump runs as if it is draining?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes

Ok sounds to me like the machine thinks it is still full of water, In this case I would check the pressure switch, this is located inside the control panel and has the small tube attached, Pull the tube off and blow into it in order to clear any lint blocking the tube, Plug the machine back in then try a cycle, If this fails to clear the problem then I would replace the pressure switch.

Hi Mike i tryed this and didnt work,It does click

Ok if you are sure the pressure switch is good then the only other possibility is the control board. There really just is nothing else that can cause this.

Is this the only way to ck the pressure switch?

No you could disconnect the small tube at the tub end, disconnect the wires to the pressure switch then blow into the tube while testing the pressure switch with a ohm meter. Below I have included a video that will show you how, the video is testing a whirlpool machine but this is the same way you would check a GE pressure switch.

If the pressure switch checks out then the control board will be the problem.
