This problem can be attributed to any one of the following items:
1. Worn Clutch/Brake assembly.
2. Gearcase (transmission) starting to go bad.
3. Basket Drive assembly worn or loose.
The more common problem is a worn clutch assembly, but you can't always be sure. If the gearcase fails, a common tell tale sign is a light colored oil leaking from it. You will notice puddles under the washer and/or spray pattern marks along the interior walls of the casing. Sometimes these two problems are interrelated as oil leaking from the gearcase can cause the clutch or brake to slip.
The following link explains how to replace the gearcase assembly:
I'm not saying you have a bad gearcase at this point, but include this link because it gives information on how to remove the clutch/brake assembly. If you go to searspartdirect.com and type in your model number as "110.24902200" there are some very helpful drawings under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump" heading. The gearcase is listed as item 9, the entire clutch/brake assembly is listed as item 5. The Basket Drive is listed as item 1.
This problem can often be hard to diagnose as any one of these components mentioned can cause a slow spin problem. I would recommend you remove the outer casing and do a visual inspection of the gearcase and clutch assembly (under the wash tub), first. Let me know what you find. I hope this gives you some guidance.
PS A basket drive failure will require you to remove the wash tub to replace. Since the basket drive penetrates through the bottom of the wash tub, it is recommended that you also replace the wash tub seal. Let me know what your preliminary findings are before we touch on this topic.

SOURCE: GE WASHER SPIN OUT PROBLEMS
Sounds like the suspension for the drum is having problems - there are usually springs holding the drum up and acting as shocks - one of the springs may have come off during an unbalanced load.

SOURCE: GE washer won't agitate
I had this same problem with our GE top load washer. I just needed to pull harder. (Note: The agitator is held in place by about a dozen L-shaped clips in a ring around the agitator's base that will release more as you pull harder on the agitator.) Everything from the base below the large fins on up comes out together. Grab the shaft above the fins and pull slowly and hard. I had to take the entire tub out, lay it on the porch, put my feet inside of it, and pull the agitator assembly out. I wasn't able to pull it out while it was still in the washer. BE CAREFUL! DON'T **** IT OUT; that might injure your back; just pull out slowly and as hard as you can without hurting yourself. I was able to get it out successfully, but I am currently stuck at removing the bell below the agitator. Good luck!

If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly and the outer shell with the tub bearing.
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.

A sure indication was the brown junk/gookus leaking out if the rear bearing area and the belt has spewed it around in the drum that the rear bearing and seal was bad...

The whole outer shell and basket come out to do this repair....what bad bearing and rusted shaft looked like...

I had to remove the back panel. Undo the pump hose & water level hose, remove the 2 shocks, remove the motor, undo the front boot from the outer panel and remove the 2 springs to lift the whole assembly out from the back to work on it.

The belt could be broken, if not. Unplug washer for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times, this should reset electronic motor.
