Question about GE Washing Machines
During the regular/cotton wash setting, there is only a 30 second hi-speed spin. I have removed the front panel and confirmed pump and hoses are good as well as the pressure switch hose. All water is being pumped out.

The motor on this washer turn one way to wash and the other way to spin and drain.
So if the washer is spinning and not draining you have a pump problem.Take the front panel off and watch to see what is happening.
You will have to check for power to the motor in spin. Either the motor is bad or the timer or both. Refer to the schematic for this.

I assume you have removed the lint filter at the bottom of the machine and cleaned it out to make sure the pump is not stalled on a 1 pence or bra clip. Can you hear the motor start to spin? If not its probably because the water level switch is gunged up at the bottom of its rubber tube where it comes from the drum. Remove the top of the machine and locate the pressure switch - usually a round black or white device about 80 to 100mm across with a rubber pipe on a small spout 8mm diameter. Take the pipe clip off using pliers to compress it and move it back down the pipe. Remove the pipe and blow hard down the pipe to try and clear the blockage - you will hear bubbles blowing in the bottom of the drum water. Also you could very very gently blow into the switch stub pipe and listen for it changing over - clicks usually twice each way - blow - two clicks, release - two clicks. Restore swtch pipe and try the machine again. Good luck.

The first thing to do is get the machine up off the floor onto a base that allows you to slide under machine on your back with a flash light. Make sure whatever you decide to lift machine up onto is very stable and durable. Bricks, blocks, or a utility cart maybe. You need to look under machine to see where the leak is coming from. You want to make sure it is not going to fall on you. The machine is not that heavy, just awkward to lift or move because of it's size. So, you could slide something under each corner, one at a time, or ask a friend to help lift it onto a base. Now you are ready to go. Don't worry, this is really easy.
Get a towel, flashlight, and start machine on a small load with shortest cycle set.(probably delicate). After you start machine, slide under and and try to find where water is leaking from. The pump is going to be a plastic circular shape thing with ridges on outside. Probably dead front center and attached to motor. If water is leaking anywhere from plastic circle thing, then this is your problem. BUT, also follow all the black hoses that are under machine. Sometimes leak can be a cracked hose or loose attachment. That is real cheap and easy. The hoses are attached with metal ring deals. You take a pair of channel locks or big pliers and squeeze them to open. There are 2 or 3 hoses that attach to pump that will need to be removed if this is where leak is coming from. Then, the pump is only attached with metal clips that you pull out to release pump from motor. No tools needed. Take the pump to sears or local appliance shop and I guarantee they will have replacement.

The fault could be with the drain out pump blocked or restricted in some way. Un-plug machine from electrical wall socket.
A small panel at rear of machine reveals the pump, pull out the two pipes (plastic clips hard to get off, slide them sideways), remove wire and un-clip pump from base of machine by lifting locking tab and sliding to the left, pump can then easily be cleaned. Of course be prepared for a lot water, junk overflow; careful it does not fall on wires.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello jamespeattie - Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

If water remains in the drum the unit will not go into the final spin. There may be a couple of reasons which I have experienced resulting in your problem. If water remains in the tub the unit will not go into the high speed spin.
1.) A coin or other foreign object could block the drain hose. Check the drain hose for foreign objects impeding the exit of the water. Shake the hose and listen for coins or a small object this unit will pass items through the pump into the hose causing blockage.
2.) The Drain hose is not raised above the machine outlet to create a siphon effect. See your manual for proper hose positioning. The hose needs to have a loop in it to work correctly.
3.) The pump is a third possibility which you should hear the impeller spinning during the drain cycle. There is a coin catch before the pump that looks like a rubber boot that should be inspected for objects if you remove the pump. The pump is about $60.00 and is accessible after removing the front panel under the door. It is easy access from the front and the hose clamps will be the most difficult problem. I have a ratcheting hose clamp tool designed for this type of clamp but channel lock pliers or vice grips will work.
If the washer will not agitate during the wash cycle you will need to remove the back panel to inspect the belt and spider pulley. You will also notice a counter weight at the top of the tub. Make sure the counter weight is tight and is not loose to prevent future problems.
