Question about GE Washing Machines
Bad oil like smell
If you have not recently washed any clothing that may have had oil on it then there are a couple of other causes for this. The start Capacitor could be starting to fail or the transmission is starting to leak.
If the smell is strong then I would suspect the start capacitor the most. You can visually inspect it to see if it is starting to bulge or leak. Let me know if this helps.

if it doesn't empty check the pump for blockages or just not working electrically, or check cold water supply to machine, or the cold water solenoid, this may also be faulty hope you can find what you need starting from the above, if i have helped please rate me

SOURCE: Washer not spinning/agitat
This problem is usually attributed to a broken motor coupling. The following link provides step-by-step instructions on how to replace one:
The motor coupling is a small 3-piece component that is installed behind the drive motor and couples it to the transmission. It is common for these small couplers to break as they wear out. The key symptom in determining the cause is the fact the washer will not agitate, but still drains. The reason is because your drain pump is mounted on the front of the drive motor and will still run as long as the drive motor is running. The part number is provided in the link I gave you. A replacement coupler can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price. Make sure you "Search by Part Number" when looking up the part. This shouldn't cost more than $20. If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common item they should have in their inventory.
If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.
