Hi, Check the lid switch. Most models will not drain or spin when the lid switch is bad.
If I can get the model#, I wil try and asist you further.

I had similar problem with my ge spacemaker washer (model gtun275emww1, only in use 3 mos!). I was about to call the repairman after 24 hours of being stuck and not advancing to next portion of the cycle. I got info from ge site to reset the motor (mine had a surge two days prior, and also an off balance load... either of those may have caused my washer problem). How to reset the motor on (some) newer GE washers - unplug the power cord, then within 30 seconds of replugging power cord open and close the lid (raise lid at least 2 inches). 6 total times within 12 seconds. Sounds strange, but my washer is working today!! Hubs and I did this complete reset routine twice in a row, just for good measure. Good luck!

My GE SpaceSaver Washer/dryer will wash, but when it's time to rinse and spin the machine stops. It will not drain, riinse , or spin.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

GE GSLS1100 Spacemaker won't spin or drain. Washes fine then makes a rattleling noise during spincycle.

When I first started using my washer when I hooked up the water it would fill the hose and then stop until I started the machine. Now when I hook up the washer to the faucet water starts to fill the machine before I close the lid and before I start the washing process....? The last time I used the machine it didnt drain and I had a flood, is there a problem with it now???

When the washer gets to the spin cycle it seems to stop and not pump out the water. All other cycles seem to work ok. It is a GE spacemaster 22"

Washer does not drain , rinse or spin

most common reason is the water pump has failed the unit will not spin untill it detects all the water has gone some times the motor is jammed take it off and look for a small coin or something thats stopping it if not then you may need a new pump motor

GE Spacemaker No Spin

Most washers use a lid switch that closes the contacts when the lid is closed, look for a "probe" on the lid that pushes a "pad" that closes the switch, it's possible the switch pad or linkage is bent causing erratic contact closing, any way that is the first place to start. THIS IS A SAFETY DEVICE, DO NOT BI-PASS IT. Good Luck

GE SpaceMaker washing machine does not stop filling.

try replacing your water selenoid coming in. remember it isnt a mechanical timer it is a computerized timer, so if the selenoid isnt the problem, it might be the computerized timer. computers are very finicky, pain in the a- -!

Spacemaker spin cycle problem

you may have something stuck in the drain pump......

first try using a wet/dry vacuum attach it to the drain hose and try to **** out what ever you have stuck in there... if that works you are good... if not you will have to get open the cabinet to get to the drain pump

Washer won't drain

The switch located to the top which is activated by the lid is bad. replace that and your washer will be fine.
