The spin function stopped, then worked ok for a week, now it has stopped again.
I use the machine almost every day, however I went on holiday for 10 days and the first wash on my return refused to spin. I tried spin only then re-ran the complete cycle to no avail. The next day it completed the full cycle and worked fine.. Now after two weeks, it doesn't spin again. Any ideas ?

If your washer will not agitate or spin take a look at this page GE Washer Not ... If the washer fills up with water then doesn't do anything at all and you do not hear ... if this were the problem, the water would not stop running, over-filling the tub.

I have a GE "Spacemaker Laundry" (Stackable) model number ... Today it filled withwater initially then stopped working all together when it ... Bad motor, something jammed/seized up holding the motor back from running?
After 10 years it will be likely that the Kinetic capacitor will need upgrading. Your watch is designed to tick in two second intervals to tell you the power is very low. The power button will work again when it has some power to show. Yorkshire Watches www,yorkshirewatches.co.uk can do the upgrade for you if your in the UK. Give them a ring.
It probably mean the spin brake has failed. If everything else is functioning OK and it is not making anymore strange noises it will be OK however when you open the lid(during spin) if it takes more than 10 seconds to stop then the brake should be replaced. If you need anything else please let me know.
Sounds like your sending unit sensor - if it was your pump going out, your engine would be history by now. Rule of thumb, if your oil check light ever comes on, it's usually too late to remedy the problem. You have a major issue, but since you've obviousely drove it quite a bit since then and it still hasn't seized up, I'm guessing you're ok...for now. Since you took it to a shop and they said you're ok, I'm assuming they checked your level and visually checked for leaks and found nothing. Either, you've got somethijng partially blocking your pick-up tube for the pump which is in your oil pan, or a electrical issue with the sensor. I would start by having someone check the sensor out and go from there...good luck.
With the symptoms you describe i would suspect a intermittent heater element fault as you are getting earth leakage current which is tripping the whole supply rather than a current overload which would just trip the socket circuit breaker. Get the heating element checked over first as this is the most likely cause.
motor brushes are worn and nead to be replaced easy job if you turn washer on to its side remove the 2 screws at the bottom and take off the plastic panel you can see the motor and the brushes are red plastic bits remove them and replace with new ones that should sort out the problem and cost about £25.00 to do .
