You probably have a motor issue, Have you checked the spin in the other cycles, if the washer spins in other cycles its not the motor, its a timer issue.

A new motor will cost you $120 american and a timer will cost you about 85. try or

Price out replacing the washer vs fixing it.

My ge washer is not spinning just sits there and hums on spin cycle. any suggestions?

Check the voltage on the spin cycle with a multimeter. If there is low power from the controller then the controller is faulty. Check the voltage available in the wash cycle. Also check the capacitor to the motor and the belt and rotor of the washer. when tested manually the movement should be free. If not reset the shaft and drive.
