My GE top loading machine stopped and will not start again.

Customer Question

My GE top loading machine stopped and will not start again. I tried to unplug and open the lid 6 times for reset and it still will not start. My daughter put too many towels in it.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: I don't know. It has a start button on the right and a spot spray button above it.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes, I fixed my front load Whirlpool and my friend's frigidare one too. This one is my parents'. I am watching their house.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I took out all the water.

The model should be on a tag on the back edge of the console or on the frame edge where you open the lid.
