Question about GE 3.2 cu. ft. Washer
My washer will fill & drain but will not agitate or spin. It makes a very load noise during the time it should be spinning or agitating. I had just run 3 loads, perfectly fine with no problems. One load of 2 fitted twin sheets, 2 pillow cases & 3 small (toddler) blankets. One load with 2 thin twin comforters. One load of towels. The next load had 2 thin table clothes, two bath towels, 2-3 pot holders, 2 cotton place mats, maybe 2 small hand towels. This last load is the load that the washer messed up on. We heard the washer making a real loud noise and when we went to check, it was at the end of draining the tub. We tried moving all the items inside to see if it was off balanced, but that wasn't it. We restarted the wash on a rinse cycle only, but after filling, the washer did not agitate or spin and was making the loud noise again. What is wrong? Can it just be the belt? How do we check?

SOURCE: Washer will not spin
I fixed it yesterday. After checking the continuity of my lid switch and pressure switch and finding them ok I removed the tubing from the pressure switch and applied air (blew into it). There was a clog and blowing on it removed it for now. Apparently the pressure switch was telling the machine that the tub was full of water and wouldn't let it start the spin cycle. I ran three loads last night and it worked perfect. I may have to remove the connection on the side of the tub and clean it properly if it clogs again.

SOURCE: GE Washer does not drain or spin
Inspect the drain hose for kinks
Test the timer control
Test the lid switch (some models)
Inspect the water pump
Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
Inspect the motor coupler

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!!!
