I would remove hte bottom access panel (3 screws across the lower front) o fmachine. form there you will gain acess to the "button trap" its a clean out for the pump assembly, sounds as if there is a something clogging the drain there fore preventing washer form high speed spin. beaware when the plug is removed there will be a bunch of water behind so be prepared with some towells, ( i use a kitchen plastic bag to collect water and any other gunk that may come through

The PAU, or pause, error usually means that the washing machine cycle was interrupted and was not restarted properly. If you try to modify the cycle or start a new one before the first cycle is complete, the PAU error will appear on the display. If the washer was stopped midcycle and not restarted, the cycle must be canceled or completed before a new selection can be made. Push "Start/Pause" to allow the current cycle to finish before making a new selection, or push "Cancel" to stop the current cycle .
My GE front loader keeps stopping in the middle of the cycle. It does it over and over and never completes the cycle. It just started doing this a couple of days ago. It took me all day to do one load of laundry the other day. Tried again today with no luck. I tried it on three different cycles and all the same. It just keeps stopping and going to pause. When I shut it off it takes about 20 minutes for the door to unlock. Is this problem worth fixing or should I junk it?
First check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly
screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.
the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the
washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose
there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained
by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and
remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and
water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something
shd be blocking your pump, check this out
If you leave the machine to itself, will it go through the whole wash satisfactorily? If it does, then the start and stop is designed into it. What it is doing is stopping and reversing the washing action. That is so the clothes will not wind up in a long rope shape, like the winding up of a towel like you use to do to a towel to snap your bother or sister in the showers or at the pool. It UNWINDS the load... It goes a few turns one way, then pauses, then a few turns the other way and pauses. Hope this helps.....
the humming noise could be from two sources and it is worth while doing a few simple checks
first the drain pump is jammed with a foreign object. check nothing caught in the impellor
water not available - check taps turned on. also turn water off, undo fill hoses, put in a bucket and turn water back on
try on drain or spin programs to check water drainage as well
