My ge washing machine won't spin - what's wrong with it?


  1. Your motor may need to be re set. unplug the machine for one minute then plug it back in. You now have 12 seconds to lift the lid and close it six times.. it only needs to be open about six inches.. this re sets the motor. if that does not work check the belt by inserting a putty knife approximatly six inches from either side to release the clips while pulling forward on the front panel to remove it. look underneath to see if the belt is in place or broken.

How do I remove the front to check the insides??? I think the belt is broken


Place a flat blade metal putty knife on the right and left sides of the front at the top where the front panel meets the top panel. There is a metal clip on each side that locks the front in place. Push in with the putty knife between the top and front and you will feel these springs. Press in one at a time and pull out gently on the front and it will come off.
