Question about Washing Machines

GE washing machine model #WBSR1060TAWW won't spin

The machine works well (fills with water, spins, drains water, little soapy residue) but it will not engage into the spin cycle.  It sounds as though it does but the tub does not spin and the clothes remain soaking.  It will spin occasionally but rarely if I manually reset it several times to the spin cycle and/or the load is very small. I have physically redistributed the load to hopefully encourage the machine to spin with no luck. I have had this machine for nine years with no problems  The loads of clothes are no different than in the past and I always select the proper size load so as not to overcrowd or over work the machine.  What do you think is the problem? Thanks for your help.

The clutch assembly may be slipping. Mine had the same symptons and eventually the bottom part of the pully on the clutch assembly spun off. Replaced assembly and worked fine again.

How To Fix A Washing Machine That Is Not Spinning or Draining
Sometimes the computer will send fault codes to the motor because of:
1. An electrical spike
2. A load imbalance
3. A fault in the computer module itself To perform the Master Reset, carefully unplug the washing machine from the power outlet and leave it unplugged for one minute. After one minute is up, plug the washer cord back into the wall. Next, open and close the door of the washing machine 6 times within 12 seconds to send a "reset" signal to all the components. (This is a common fix that many appliance repair mechanics use - it works on about 50% of all washing machines.)If that did not solve the problem then it may be the "Lid Switch". Top loading washing machines that have a faulty lid switch will not turn the agitator and the spin cycle will not start. However on some washing machine models it will still agitate but not spin. To properly check this you must remove the lid switch. (The lid switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame.) The proper procedure for removing the switch will vary by different washing machine models Water Level Control / Pressure Switch". This is usually always the defective part when your washing machine pumps the water out but will not spin and also whenthe water overflows on your washer. You can check this yourself by removing the 4 screws that hold the control panel in place. Once removed you will see the Water Level Control Valve. To identify it look for the part with the small plastic tube attached to it. Once identified, pull the plastic hose off the water level switch and blow air into it. If the tube is clogged with soapy residue, then you can try forcing vinegar down the tube and in the switch itself by using a turkey baster as this will dissolve the soapy residue. If the switch is visibly cracked or burned you will need to replace it

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load
