Question about GE Washing Machines
I can hear a click click once the washing machine drains the water out but the washer won’t spin. It beeps and the code dr appears on the pad.
I opened the black plastic plug at the back bottom of the machine called the coin catcher. I put my finger in but I don’t feel anything. I tried again but the machine still won’t spin.
Do I need to do something else to the coin catcher?
Try using a wet/dry shop vac and see if you can pull water through the drain hose in the back. If you can, duct tape the vacuum nozzle to the drain hose to make a good seal. With the vacuum on, watch the drain hose under the tub. If it collapses, you have a clog somewhere. It may be easier to remove the hoses from the pump, first to see if there is anything stuck in the impeller. It doesn't take much to restrict water flow. If you need to remove the hose from the bottom of the tub, try to get as much water out using the method I mentioned. It may be slow, but as long as it can pull water, try to drain. This will save you from a big mess later. If there is a clog in the hose, all that water will gush out with the hose disconnected. You may want to have a few towels handy. Now...in some models there is a plastic ball valve in the drain hose connected under the tub. This needs to stay there, but may also be jammed with crud. Sand and dirt is notorious for clogging at this point in the drain system. This hose should come off with a simple clamp tightened with a screw. If you go through all the effort and find the lines clear, you may have a failed drain pump.

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin
this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.
