Question about GE WJSR2080V
Disconnect power first In approx. 1995 GE stopped making the metal drum washer and came out with a new plastic drum washer and plastic outer tank. To access the washer there are a couple clips between the top of the washer and the front panel that holds the panel on. There is one on each side at about where the pictures show. The clips are mounted on the cabinet and push down into slots on the front panel. Press in on these clips with a putty knife ( you will be pushing inward on the clip) and pull the top of the panel away from the cabinet when the clips are released. The bottom of the panel sits on a couple clips on the bottom of the washer. Pull out on the panel and lift off the clips at the bottom. You now have access to the operating components of this washer. To remove the top panel, remove the bleach from the top panel and remove the two 1/4" drive screws from the top front of the washer and lift up and forward on the top panel. You will have to unclip the wire harness ( male-female wire connector ) for the lid switch.
remove power and check the pump to see if you can turn the pump by hand. If it is stiff or will not turn at all, the pump will have to be taken apart or the hoses taken off to see what is jamming the pump. The pump is bolted to the base on the bottom right of the washer. It is a separate electric motor and pump assembly.
Ever have trouble with a sock in the pump??..or small articles of clothing getting lost somewhere after the laundry is done??
I have a great solution for you!! :-)
Things caught in the pump...often "light" articles of clothing will "float" on top of the wash water and during the spin/pump cycle they can jump from the inner basket into the outer holding tank and become lodged in the pump.
Keeping all your small - light articles of clothing...E.G. nylons, socks, kids clothes, mittens...all together and not getting mixed up and lost during the wash and dryer cycles can also be a problem.
Try using a laundry bag...we use them for all socks ( keeps them separated so my kids cannot steal mine!! )...and helps to stop lose those little articles of clothing. Just throw these types of clothes into the bad, zip it closed and wash and dry. Unzip the bag and put away in the drawers :-)

The older style GE washer has a metal wash basket as well as a metal outer tank. This style of a washer also has a access panel on the back of the washer. Get top up by pressing on 2 clips located about 6 inches in from each side between top and cabinet. Putty knife or flat blade screwdriver works well here. From the top you can access the lid switch, tub gasket, fill valve, fill hose, removal of inner basket. To access the motor, motor relay, pump, pump hoses, belt, clutch the back access panel will have to be removed, some back panels are made of cardboard. This washer is a reversing type of washer, for example the motor runs one way to wash, stops, and reverses and the motor runs on the other direction to drain and pump. The timer is responsible to make the washer stop and reverse the motor. There is a clutch assembly built on top of the motor to drive the transmission and pump.
Thanks for contacting Fixya
