Re: GE WBB2090 Not spinning but working otherwise
By "cycle switch" I assume you mean the timer. That part is not normally serviced, but replaced as an assembly. See if it spins after you replace it. If not, check the lid switch, motor switch, wiring, connections and start capacitor.
a 6ya Repairman can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It almost sounds like the lid switch is working backwards but I have never seen that happen on a GE. The switch either works or goes bad. One other possibility is a defective water level switch. Thats also called a pressure switch sometimes.
it might be the safety switch under the door.
it is a switch that will not allow the spin cycle to spin unless the door is closed - like when you look in your washer while its spinning and as soon as you open the door the spinning stops until you shut the door again.
if its damaged it will not allow the spin cycle to work.
try look under the lid.
costs around $3.00 put in with a screw driver good luck
Most washers use a lid switch that closes the contacts when the lid is closed, look for a "probe" on the lid that pushes a "pad" that closes the switch, it's possible the switch pad or linkage is bent causing erratic contact closing, any way that is the first place to start. THIS IS A SAFETY DEVICE, DO NOT BI-PASS IT. Good Luck
One possible problem is the door interlock switch. This switch prevents spinning when the door/lid is open. If the switch is bad (open/off all the time) it sends a false signal that the door is open and washer will not spin.
Does the machine just sit there when it's not spinning or does it sound like it's trying to spin but can't?
Actually, I think I do remember having one do this before, and I
believe on these GE models the spin cycle goes through the water level
switch, so if your water level switch is sticking, then it won't spin,
thinking its still full of water.
Same problem (but without any smell). You should try to reset the two computer boards in the washer. You do this by 1) unplugging machine and wait for 30 secs; 2) plug in machine; and 3) open and fully close the lid at least 5 times. This resets computer boards, which can get messed up by power surges, etc.
