I had the same problem with mine about 10 months ago. It seemed that the washer would take forever to wash a load. Every time we went to check the remaining time, it seemed that it never changed. This went on for about a week. We discovered that the washer was not draining properly. After we took it apart, we discovered that a sock, along with some other items, had managed to find its way into the drain pipe. Once we removed the stoppage, and cleaned out the gunked up piping, everything worked well. If we could only find a permanent solution to the ripping door gasket (I have to buy one today; it's the 4th one!!!!).
BTW - I contacted GE about the problem, via email and phone, and they were clueless and not very helpful.

check to make sure all hoses are not clogged - our washer hose before the pump was clogged due to washing a rug that had deteriorating rubber backing - would not drain until I flushed out the hose that goes from the tub t the pump.

I am not a repair professional. I am just a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. It sounds like you may have a slipping (loose or stretched) v-belt. See if you can get the back off and look for a way to tighten the belt. This is a frequent problem. The built in a way to tighten the belt.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Tina Kaha - Often when a unit does not spin, it is because the unit cannot properly drain and dispose of the water and detergent solution. Does the unit make a humming noise? If so, the drainage hose/pump may be clogged and needs to be cleaned. If not, the washer may possibly be experiencing an issue with the door lock assembly, faulty pump, timer or control board not communicating correctly. Because it could be a number of any one of several underlying causes, I would recommend contacting a professional to properly diagnose and repair the unit.

Hi - I understand that the door won't engaged, however does it show any other symptoms? Try to start a drain spin cycle and let the unit run for approximately 5-7 minutes and press cancel once. If the door opens immediately, unit made have a bad door lock. If you have to wait for the door to release to open, then possibly you have a control or wiring issue.
