Does Not Spin in Any Setting, But Does Drain and Agitate Properly

My GE Top Load Washer agitates and drains just fine, it switches to spin mode and actually sounds like it is spinning, but it isn't doing anything.

Sounds you may have a lid switch problem.

My washer doesn't agitate or spin, it just drains and fills up

That sounds like your lid switch. The lid switch on most models of top load washers will be bypassed on fill and drain. As a safety the lid must be closed for agitate and spin.

The lids switch is a pretty easy part to replace and is inexpensive.

Lid switch? Does motor run? If so check belt.

Will not go in to spin cycle

Remove agitator (it will pop off when pried) then you will find your answer. Mine was a broken tub collar to shaft.
