Electronic motor needs to be reset. Unplug for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid slowly 7 times to reset computer. Also check to see if belt is not broke, pull up top, remove front cover, just lifts off, check belt.

This can be cause by one of several things.
1.) No power going into machine.
2.) Defective lid safety switch.
3.) Defective timer or control board.
4.) Defective drain pump (Washer will not spin unless the water has drained out of machine and water level switch drops.)
5.) Defective motor.( Motor won't reverse, windings "burned-out") at which you woukld have to replace the motor.
Check these and you will find out why washer will not spin.
WARNING! - For your safety! Disconnect electrical supply BEFORE SERVICING! Some of the electrical componants such as the drain pump and electronic control board are UNGROUNDED! Before servicing these componants be sure YOU ARE "GROUNDED" and not part of the electrical circut. Serious injury or death can or will occur.

GE WASHER SPIN OUT PROBLEMS


Sounds like the suspension for the drum is having problems - there are usually springs holding the drum up and acting as shocks - one of the springs may have come off during an unbalanced load.
