Question about Washing Machines
You can turn it on in spin mode with the lid down. Motor should come on when you turn on the it will have a spin down noise and a click when you turn it off. Belts normally have a burning rubber smell when they go out but this can also be caused by drive problems.

Welcome to FixYa
is with the motor itself that is bad and needs replacement. I don't think it is
the belt that is bad causing this issue, if you want you can take it apart and
check the belt. However, the hum sound itself indicates that the motor is bad
and recommended repair is replacing the motor. Please get back to me if you
have any other questions.

first thing to check when your GE washer is not agitating, is the belt.
Let me tell you how to check the belt & the clutch with out having
to take the washer apart.
The belt: Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the timer knob to turn the washer on.
If the washer drains the water and then spins the way that it should, this tells you that the motor, belt & clutch are not the reason why your washer won't agitate.
A broken belt could be the reason your washer is not agitating or spinning.
The agitator: After making sure that the belt, motor & clutch are working ok, lets check the agitator.
The agitator uses a plastic agitator coupler that is couple to the transmission shaft by using splines cut in the coupler and on the transmission shaft.
Too much usage or overloading the washer too many times will wear the agitator coupler splines. With out the splines the coupler could not be coupled to the transmission shaft and that could be the cause why your washer is not agitating.
The clutch: A
bad clutch could also be the reason the washer won't agitate or spin.
Usually when the clutch is bad the washer will be noisy, like when you
have bad brakes on your car.
The transmission: The
transmission could be the reason your washer is not agitating. A common
problem with the transmission is oil leaking right on top of the motor
pulley and the belt.
As you can see, there could be different reasons why your GE washer is not agitating. You just need to keep checking each part until you find the problem and replace the part responsible.
