Question about General Electric WCSR2090D Top Load Washer
When I wash a load using my GE MODEL WCSR2090 washing machine and it Hits the Rinse & Spin Cycle on the Start/ Stop Button, the machine itself delays, and there is a long dramatic delay and a humming sound before it catches( sounds like a clutch kicking in) before it actually clicks on.... then it finaly spinsto a stop... Worried about buring out the motor or something.. any ideas as to what might be broken and or how to fix it???

You should check how you have the washer draining if the hose is too low or connected directly to the plumbing it will give you the siphon problem that you are experiencing.

I think you may have a stopped up pump does it drain the water out if not it will not spin. A putty knife inserted 2 inches in from each side will release the spring catches and gently pull on front as you release sprins then look to the bottom right hand side and there is the pump clamp the tub to pump hose or **** water out with a shop vac take off tub to pump hose and then two 3/8 in screws that hold down the pump turn over where you can look in the pump may have an obstruction as always disconnect power before service.

Unplug machine. Change load type to medium. Clean door sensor. Set knob to drain and spin. Plug machine back in to powr. Open and close door 10 times in 15 seconds. Pull knob to activate drain and spin.

Pull up sharply on the agitator to remove it from the shaft. Check the agitator mounting cup underneath it is probably stripped out. It is a replaceable part.
If the agitator is difficult to pull up,use a old strong leather belt under the agitator and pull it off using the belt.

First of all, you do remove the a panel from the front.
On the inside floor of the machine, there were two "L" brackets with a hole for bolts, There were also two brackets on the bottom of the tub with similar holes. One pair was on the left bottom side and the other was on the bottom right.
It appeared that a bolt or some type of "dampening" connector was meant to go through to these holes. But there were no broken parts lying inside.That was my first "guess" for their purpose.
The left side (as facing the machine) "L" floor brackets and a tub bracket had been " bent" in such a way that that when the tub shook enough, the two brackets prevented the tub from moving too far. But not the pair on the right hand side. Go figure.
How it ever got this way or whether this was a "jury-rigged" solution at the factory (because they ran out of parts) is beyond me. Maybe the two brackets were meant to act as some form of "stop". But why were bent in such a fashion? And why only the ones on the left bottom side of the machine? I swear somebody bent them on purpose but that's me.
In any case, the tub had moved far enough that the bent tub bracket had slipped around the bent floor bracket. When ever the machine was on "wash" or "rinse" this "configuration" would bang against each other loudly. But it would not happen during the "spin" cycle.
I simply bent the two left hand side brackets back into a someone normal configuration (as with the bottom right floor and tub brackets) and put every thing back together. The banging sound was gone. However, you could still hear the brackets hitting each other on heavy loads. But it was not the "BOOM" I was getting before.
Eventually, the four rubber top corner "shock" springs will need replacing but at least things are quiet for the moment. But why or how the left bottom tob and floor brackets got so bent out of shape is beyond me. "Human intervention" or normal "wear and tear"?
