Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer
This washer is notorious for breaking belts. The washer has an electronic motor, operated by a computer. If you overload machine belt will eventually wear and break or computer just needs to be reset. Try resetting first, this is easy, unplug machine for 2 minutes, plug back in and open and close lid 7 times, this will reset motor and computer. Now try machine see if it runs through cycles correct. If not try it again. If still does not work unplug machine and Take off front cover of washer, look in seam where top meets front, you will see on each side a clip, push a flat head screwdriver into clip to release each one. Front will pull back and slide it up to remove. Check belt, if you see a lot of black ground material in bottom you have bad belt. Replace belt. You should have problem solved. If not let me know we will go to next step. But I believe this will solve your problem.

Check first whether the motor is running or not by listening to it while the washer is in the wash or spin cycle. The drive belt has slipped off the drum pulley or has been broken if the motor runs but the washer does not agitate or spin. Check the lid switch assembly if the motor is not running at all and replace it if necessary.
