Question about Washing Machines
I have a GE WCVH6800J washer which often leaves clothes soaking wet. It makes a rubbing sound when it spins. Ran the to2 diagnostic and it returns an error code 31 which means there is a problem with the pump. I also ran the t11 test and the spin speed only reached 900 rpm, not its maximum speed of 1100 rpm. I already cleaned the pull out pump filter. Am I dealing with two different problems?

SOURCE: Clothes wet, doesnt spin fast
Check the drain spigot, where the drain hose attaches to the drain trap under the sink/tub.There may be a blockage in the spigot which is causing the water to drain very slowly and therefor not allowing the machine to spin at normal fast speed.

SOURCE: washer doesn,t spin
two possibles here, if the drain pump is clogged and therefore the unit will not go into a spin. After pumping, it will error out and just shut off. If the pump is ok, then the motor control unit has failed.

Remove the front panel and you will see two metal guides attached to the front of the frame. One of them will probably be bent and the transmission assembly will have jumped over one or the other of the guides. You need to manually pull it back to center then straighten the bent guide. May have been caused by load being out of balance or machine not properly leveled. Good luck.

there is a filter under the washer door behind the panel...its white just unscrew it and clean out the filter and that should solve your problem.

Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good.
No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine.
You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head.
Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached.
""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code.
The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle
I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min. I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM. At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle. You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine. Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?
