Pop off the controll panel by removeing the screws on the bottoem of the controls. After that there are two clips that hold the outer skin to the washer. pop off and there you are. their are several connectors that have to be disconnected and be sure to shut off the power first.

Spin. Working short time do not put cloth water out

Sounds like the belt that spins the washing drum is slipping. It my need to be adjusted or replaced, or try washing a smaller load of laundry.

Ge washer will only spin with no load

Your washer has a 2 speed clutchless motor. If it spins with no load I would first look at the belt. You can remove the front of your washer by inserting a putty knife about 4" on the right and left top of the front panel and push in. This should release the front panel so you can see what is going on. If the belt is worn replace.

put the belt on the motor pulley then start with the other end on the drum pulley and turn it with your hand , i hope this makes sense . the object is to let the pulley do the work of stretching the belt into position

Machine wont spin out items are full of water

Take the belt off and run the washer to see if the motor will turn without a load.
Newer style GE - long history of transmission/brake issues with these. Best course of action is explained at this link:

Ge washer top load wlse4000goww not washing/spinning only pumps

Your type of washer usually has a belt theat runs the agitator and spins the tub. The pump is hooked by a direct coupling. If you are still pumping that tells me the motor works but the belt is probably broken or worn so badly that it no longer drives.
Have the belt replaced or do a search for "appliance parts" and then enter your model number. You will get a parts menu to order a new belt from for your unit.
Belt replacement for some of these units can be a major chore... then again some are relatively easy, but consider yourself warned if it is a real project....

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Front loading GE washer making noise when the drum turns. sounds like a belt but I don't have the manual and don't know how to get the top off.

there should be two screwws in the door jam on the front panel, they hold the top down
once you remove those slide the top backwards then lift up
let me know if its the belt

GE top loading washer does not spin out water

The belt could be broken, if not. Unplug washer for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times, this should reset electronic motor.
