Re: older ge washer pump
Loosen the clamp around the rubber coupling 1/4 " nut driver do not take it off completely just enough to get it off the top of the pump then remove the 3 mounting bolts on the bottom of the pump and install new

I see Eric C was correct, that you did not post your correct model number. You did say older GE, and from your description it sounds like you need to replace the WH23X42 water pump (about $50). It is one 1/4 inch clamp on the bottom holding on the flexible drive, three 5/16 hex head screws mounting the pump body to machine, and four squeeze style spring clamps holding the hoses. (be ready to catch the water when you remove hoses)
Well if you have a belt drive model then your wigwag solenoid is probably bad. This shifts the tranny into the spin and open the drain flap on the pump. If you have a newer beltless model then i would say your drive coupling is probably shot. Post the model number in the comment box for a more precise answer mon ami.
if the image on your posting is correct and model number 2 there is no belt washer is driven by coupler between motor and transmission it could be broke if washer drains but won't agitate or spin ..remove end caps on console by pulling up remove screws on each end of console lift console up and roll back remove clips on each corner and lift cabinet forward and off remove pump clips remove motor clips by removing screws first drop motor remove coupling and replace
not overfill since no water overtop just switch detecting too much water...lean washer back remove 3 screws holding bottom panel on newer pumps have torx screws in bottom id any way possible remove a much water as possible first may try leaning washer foward after removing bottom panel remove the screws in bottom of pump and clean..older pumps were harder to clean and replacement was easier but more expensive..new style comes with motor attached
