Question about Washing Machines
My washer starts washing fine until 3 minutes left to go. Then it starts knocking and clicking and flipping out. In a 6 min wash, it runs fine for 3 mins, in a 9 min wash, it runs fine for 6 mins etc. It will continue to run very loudly until the cycle ends. My washer has speed settings and I'm thinking it is trying to switch speeds during the wash cycle and either a switch or controller is failing. Also, in the spin cycle, it starts spinning with a lot of knocking and clicking, then the motor shuts down. Clothes end up soaked.
I'm not that familiar with GE but most washers will start draining before or when they spin. If there is something caught in the drain pump it could make a lot of noise. Can you hook up the motor separately to 120v? Maybe try that.

If you think the wash load is in a spin cycle of the wash cycle or rinse cycle place the machine in Spin Only cycle and see if it will complete.
