GE Prodigy agitates but won't proceed to spin/drain

The model # is WPSE4270AOWW.

It makes a slight buzzing sound while stuck after agitating waiting to spin. What is the first two or three troubleshooting steps? This just started happening after the power turned back on after being off for two days after hurricane Irma if that has anything to do with it.

Power surge may have been a problem as that washer has a electronic control board. I not sure if your washer does this but give it a try. Unplug washer for a minute, plug in and open and close lid 7 or 8 times this resets computer. try spin, If does not work check lid switch.

Thanks. That tip didn't work. What do I do to check the switch? It's not a button. It's like a magnet or something. Two parts that just touch

You need to open console, Lid switch switch is on right side, Use a magnet on switch or close lid. Switch should show closed with lid closed.
Forgot to ask do you have a multi meter?
