Question about GE WPRB8050D Top Load Washer
My problem has appeared in the past couple days. My washer seems to be working fine until it does the drain and spin portion. I noticed that it does agitate the clothing while washing and drains and fills with water just fine. However it does not seem to spin to get that excess water off and the clothes come out soaking wet. I tore apart the washer and reseated all the cables on the control board and even checked the motor while I ran a load. The motor and belt below it seem to run fine while the clothes are being washed, but once it goes into the drain/spin portion it stops. I seem to hear a clicking sound, but the belt does not turn down below and the motor gets extremely hot and starts to smell like it is smoking, but that smell only shows up while it is trying to spin. I reseated the cable from the control board to the motor as well and that didn't help. My guess is that there is something wrong with the board, perhaps something just died, even though everything else seems to work ok. If anybody has any other ideas of what I could look for or where I could get a good deal on the parts, I would appreciate it. Thanks so much for your time.

Perhaps the brake is not releasing. Make sure the lid safety switch is ok. Remove the motor and test.
