Washer pumps but half the time it won't spin unless you give the basket a little push. I use a small magnet to keep the lid relay closed. Once I give the basket a little push, the washer starts to...


Quite likely the spin motor is a capacitor start type motor and has a capacitor to start it (by placing a winding slightly out of phase with the rest of the motor in turn encouraging the movement of the motor). When it reaches about 200 RPM the capacitor is disconnected and runs without it.
Maybe the start capacitor is faulty or the internal switch/electronic control is faulty?

My ge washer is not spinning just sits there and hums on spin cycle. any suggestions?


Check the voltage on the spin cycle with a multimeter. If there is low power from the controller then the controller is faulty. Check the voltage available in the wash cycle. Also check the capacitor to the motor and the belt and rotor of the washer. when tested manually the movement should be free. If not reset the shaft and drive.

Washer does not spin. when it should be spinning it buzzes. I gave the tub a push start and it did rotate slowly. the washer does rotate for washing


Possible that the drive is jammed or the motor is faulty , the voltage to the motor is low. If there is a capacitor to the motor then the capacitor can be weak and might result in slow start.

Spin cycle does not work. Machine only hums when it should spin.


Check the motor capacitors. Wash cycle and run cycle capacitors are different in some m/cs.If these are OK motor winding to be checked.

Now it is ten years old and you are likely to get ball bearing problem. Get an repair estimate and decide which suits your budget.

GE Washing Machine Replacement Motor - Capacitor? Relay? Schematic?


The new units have all of your schematics, capacitor and a higher price for a reason. With GE I avoid used parts because there is so much electronics you don't want to fry. The wire harness leads match the old and there should not be an extra wire, were would it go if there is not a receptacle for it?
I looked up your unit and the motor replacement is WH20X10009 for the model you quoted. As of now GE is has updated this to model wh20x10006 for around 263 dollars.
