Don't know if this will help or not, but your owners manual is available at http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher
Water won’t drain Drain hose is kinked or • Straighten drain hose and make sure washer is not improperly connected sitting on it. • Top of drain outlet should be less than 8 ft. (2.5 m)
above floor. Household drain may • Check household plumbing. You may need to call be clogged a plumber. Plumbing this washer directly to a pipe is hard on the motor. Usually the drain hose elbow is inserted in a stand pipe, meaning the washer would drain water on the floor is the stand pipe is clogged.
Several items can cause the lack of draining.
If you can get to the drain hose, try lowering to a point that it will drain into a bucket. If it drains the system is not clogged. If you advance the timer and the washer drains this maybe the culprit. The motor can overheat and shut off. I would advance the timer to spin and listen for a hum in the motor and then quiet, a sign that the motor has overheated. If the water drains it sounds like the timer is at fault.
I would first make sure the drain hose is properly installed and not kinked somewhere. In earlier GE's the water drain pump could clog, your manual doesn't indicate that as a defect. Regardless timer, motor and pump are in the cycle to empty the washer water.

The spin problem could be a number of different things,one, the motor is bad, two your belt is bad, three the clutch is slipping, but as far as the suds goes how much detergent are you using and what kind? is the cold water coming in full force on rinse? if you have allot of suds this can make the machine not spin fast also.
The clutch is the most likely cause,these are not cheap, in fact it comes as the motor and clutch together on this.
If you are looking for a good reliable machine buy a top load direct drive whirlpool, no frills or bells and whistles and these run great for a long time and when they need repair these are inexpensive to fix. thats what i recomend.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
