Question about GE WBSE2090A Top Load Washer
Will it spin? Have you tried the Delicate cycle?
If it is like my washer, it appears that the high speed part of the motor is the issue. If when it comes to the point where it is supposed to start agitating, but all you hear is a buzzing, grab the tub, the outside edges, not the agitator (you're going to have to use a magnet to override the safety) and turn it clock-wise, and it should start to agitate (you might have to do it a couple times if you don't get it fast enough). Close the lid, but make sure it doesn't stop or you'll have to do it again. When it goes to the low speed agitation, open the lid and make it stop. Close the lid and it should start right back up. When the washer spins, listen for when it goes to the high speed spin, you probably won't hear it gain much speed (it should sound much faster if working correctly).
The motor (which in mine has already been replaced once) kit that is available (~$200-$250) will require some minor re-wiring, as they added a capacitor to the electrical system due to a problem with the previous design (yes, I've had that problem, which was a low speed motor issue, where the washer wouldn't spin on low speed and now it appears to be screwed up on high speed motor.) I'm weighing the options of just waiting for black friday and buying a new washer since ~$500 on motors for this washer is just unjustifiable and I won't be buying another GE, that's for damn sure.
