SOURCE: Washer fills and spins but does not agitate

Im sorry to say, it sounds like the transmission in the washer may have gone out, the unit it self sits at the bottem of the main agitator shaft under the the tub, you may be able to have this replaced, but shop around for the right price.

The best way to fix this problem is to adjust the front legs while the machine is spinning a full wash load.  Put in a load of clothes and run the machine to get the clothes nice and wet.  It will take about 5 minutes to get them completely wet.  Next, turn the washer off.  Now, turn the washer back on and push the spin button to select the extra fast speed.  You washer will go into a drain mode and then begin to toss the load into a balance spin mode.  Once the washer is spinning the clothes, check the balance of the unit by pushing the front left corner of the washer towards the right rear corner and right front corner towards the left rear corner.  If the sound of the washer quiets down on one side vs the other side, adjust the front leg to quiet that side.  Do not attempt to adjust the rear legs as they do not require adjustments at all.  Everything adjusts on the front legs.  
This procedure works if the floor is sturdy enough.  If the floor is old and the wood is weak, it will not work.

SOURCE: GE washer GNSR2140A0WW wont spin/agitate but fills and drains

Hello, your problem is going to be with the lids switch, in this machine it is going to be a magnetic contact. You can confirm this my pulling the front panel off and accessing the wireing to the lids switch, If you have electrical knowledge bypass the lid switch using a wire nut and run the machine. If all is ok make sure you relpace the lid switch since it is there for a reason. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!!

Tub will spin but agitator won't move on my ge washer model wpsr3090v0ww

IF it sounds like it is agitating but isn't moving, check to be sure the agitator is still firmly bolted to the transmission shaft. If it sounds like it's stuck when it tries to agitate (belt slipping possibly, etc.) it is probably a bad transmission and often not worth repairing unless you can find a used one somewhere.

Will not agitate or spin, belt is fine. Motor is not turning, just making a humming noise. Is the motor bad or are there brushes that can be replaced or.....?

move the belt to see if it is not jammed and spins the rotor. If that is the case, the Humming noise is then an indication of a burned motor and not from a good motor trying to drive a jammed belt.

Non-spinning washer

Have you checked the motor? Make sure that the motor is turning properly and also make sure that your belt it not to tight. It should have some give in it. If none of that works then look at the main bearing under the pulley on the drum
