Washing machine wont wash or spin, just fills and drains

I have a white GE washing machine(older model, was a gift from other in law) with the lid on top and the turn knobs to select the wash cycles, anyway Its worked great until now, it will fill with water, wont wash. Water just sits there, it sounds like the motors on you can hear the noise of the machine on, then the timer goes thru the cycle to drain, which it does, then it fills again for the rinse, then just sits there until it drains for the spin cycle and again wont spin. what can i do and how can I find the make and model of this machine? I know its a GE.

THE MODEL NUMBER IS USUALLY FOUND SOMEWHERE AROUND THE OPENING OF THE TUB OR ON THE LID ITSELF

    I know this is too late but maybe someone else might be helped. It sounds like you lost or broke the belt going to the spine of the drive system underneath the machine. Unless of course its a direct drive unit then you may have broke the coupler.

My washer doesn't agitate or spin, it just drains and fills up


That sounds like your lid switch. The lid switch on most models of top load washers will be bypassed on fill and drain. As a safety the lid must be closed for agitate and spin.

The lids switch is a pretty easy part to replace and is inexpensive.

GE Washing Machine (model # GUSR2LOOT) drain problem


Check for a blockage in the water pump. If it does not drain first it does not spin. Check for power to the drain pump motor.If no pump blockage check the lid switch for continuity. No continuity, replace the lid switch.
