Question about GE Washing Machines

I have a Top Load GE Model #WBSR3140G1WW. The

I have a Top Load GE Model #WBSR3140G1WW. The spin cycle is not working. The water drains but it doesn't spin and it is not dispensing the fabric softener. The motor is running but nothing is happening. Normally when it is in the spin cycle I can't raise the lid. Now when it is supposed to be spinning, I can raise the lid.
Last Saturday (7/11) we had a storm and lightening hit and got our TV converter box, direct tv receiver box, dvd player, the GFI outlet in the bathroom and another outlet on the outside of our garage. We also lost power to the bathroom lights, the computer and lights in that area and the light in the laundry room. I flipped the circuit breakers off then back on in those areas and the lights and computer came back on. I don't know if lightening got the washer or it's just a coincidence that it started having trouble now. Dryer is working fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is an electronic washer. Unplug for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times slowly. This will reset electronic motor.

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"

Wobbels and vey loud during spin cycle


hi there,

looks like you have an unbalanced load of clothes. this usually means that your drum is out of alignment, hence it makes a lot of noise. i would recommend having a technician come out and it's a big job to have it put back together. you may have to replace the coupling or brake as well. have him check if anything is actually broken.

thanks

Actually, I think I do remember having one do this before, and I believe on these GE models the spin cycle goes through the water level switch, so if your water level switch is sticking, then it won't spin, thinking its still full of water.

Here's the water level pressure switch for your model:
