the motor spins with out the belt , makes me tend to discount the capacitor
I would be looking for a tub brake that is not being opened to allow the tub to agitate
there are solenoid activated brake under the machine the applies a brake when you lift the lid during wash, when the program is finished
have a technician check it out
when it went unbalanced the tub most likely broke the lid switch part 3949238.open the lid,on the right side of lid you'll see a strike,it goes into a hole and this is where the lid switch is,stick a screw driver into the hole,if you don't hear a clicking sound the switch is broke http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MFsvLiuTniU
The typical cycle is; fills to selected water level agitates wash cycle drains wash water spins wash cycle fills to selected water level on rinse cycle agitates on rinse cycle drains rinse water spins final time end of cycle
The spin function is normally controlled by water level control switch not allowing operation until all water is pumped out,rinse should activate water valve to add clean water,if machine fills ok initially the problem seems to be in the controller not activating certain parts of the normal cycle.
Water-inlet valve Water-level switch Water-inlet valve
A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.
A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.
The water temperature is incorrect
The temperature of the incoming water determines the temperature of the water in your washer. You get either hot, cold, or a mix of the hot and cold water that's currently available to the machine. So if the cold water that enters the machine is very cold--or if the hot water entering the machine is very hot--the warm water is affected.
If you live in a Northern climate, unless you adjust the hot and cold water taps that supply water to your washer, the warm water supplied to your washer is usually hotter during the summer months and colder during the winter months.
When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it. Good luck!
genaral electric washing machine fills won,t spin but throws out water as if it did, goes to next cycle same thing, but sounds as if it is spinning but isn,t, hose not clocgged i checked, what else can be the problem,sounds ok but not spinning
Thanks for your question You say it works on one cycle but not the other lets sat you start a regular wash ,the washer should fill ,wash for the minutes you have set, pump out the water #spin , Stop fills & rinse stop pump out water &spin If you try a delicate cycle and it does not do what it did on regular cycle . You have a timer problem . Thanks for your question hope i helped you solve it . THE APPLIANCE DOC
