Something could be wedges between inner and outer tubs. If not that, motor may be bad.

SOURCE: Washer drains but won't spin.

The next time this condition occuers, take the front panel off the machine and look under the top cover of the motor at the right front side. There is a LED light on the motor inverter board there. If it is flashing twice, then a pause, then repeating this again and again you most likely have a loose hub nut on your wash basket. (the motor reads this as belt slippage)
1. Order and install a new hub washer (WH2X1199) and a new split ring (WH2X1195) along with a new hub nut (WH2X1193). If the hub part of the basket is worn, replace that as well (plastic tub models = WH45X10027, SS tub = hub / basket WH45X10060.
2. Tighten hub nut, torque to 110 ft-lbs.
3. Clear flash code error. (your method to clear code is a bit more extreme than required, but will work)

SOURCE: GE washer no main motor run so no agitate or spin

This is the electronic washer. Unplug for two minutes, plugin then open and close lid 7 times. This will reset motor. Also make sure belt is not broken.

SOURCE: TV won't turn on

If the led is blinking one time there is a problem in the 140 volt circuit. Most likely a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor or a bad flyback transformer.

I would recommend that you contact a local servicer in your area and see if they can come to your house and diagnose the problem and give you an esimate for the repair. This can be tricky to diagnose and the potential for electrical shock is very high. So I would be careful if you wish to repair it yourself.

I would guess that you should be able to get a servicer to your home and repair the set for somewhere between $350.00 - $450.00 depending on the parts that are needed and the area in which you live.

I hope that this helps you with this issue. If you have any further questions, please post and I will try to help you as much as I can.
Thanks for using FixYa

Ge he low h20 with precise fill wont spin out completely model gtwn5050mqws

Sounds like a motor or mode shifter issue. If you can access the motor area, there is an LED light on the motor. It will blink a series of blinks. there is a tech sheet located behind the control panel that will tell what the blinks mean. Hope this helps

LED Indications

The front panel Status LED provides an indication of

the set's operation and the possible cause of a malfunction.

If an abnormal condition is indicated, perform the

Self Diagnostics procedure.

Self Diagnostics

To activate, press the front panel <ACTIVITY> &<CH

??> buttons at the same time and hold for 5 seconds.

The STATUS LED will then flash denoting a two digit

code.

• The number of flashes indicates the value of the

MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.

• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2

second.

• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the

(ones digit) of the Error Code.

• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.

Example: If the Error Code is "23", the LED

will flash two times, pause, and then flash three

times.

Table 2-2: LED Indications

Error Codes, descriiptions and the most likely cause of

the error are listed in Table 2-3.

Note: The TV must be in "Shut Down." The LED

will probably be indicating an abnormal

condition. If the TV is switched Off, AC is

removed, or a System Reset is performed, the

code automatically resets to "12" No Error.

See the Error Code Log to retrieve a history of

errors.

Note: Use the front panel buttons, not the remote

control.

Note: If there is no response, the front panel may be

locked by a V-Chip setting. To unlock, press

and hold <ACTIVITY> on the front panel for

8 seconds.

LED Indication Condition

Off Off (standby)

Green Power On

Slow Blink Green Power Off with Timer Set

Fast Blink Green (80 seconds) > Off Power Off (Cooling fan still working, 80 sec)

LED Indication Condition

Red Lamp Failure

Yellow TV Too Hot

Slow Blink Red TV May Require Service

Slow Blink Yellow Lamp Door Open or No Lamp Installed

NORMAL INDICATIONS
ABNORMAL INDICATIONS (For details perform Self Diagnostics Procedure.)

GE top loading washing machine drains and fills but does not agitate or spin. Wiring around lid switch resolved problem for one load only. Flashing green light on motor circuit board seven flashed each...

7 blinks DOES indicate a problem with the lid switch.
Replace the switch, and inspect the wiring for cracks/wear.

Can you hear the motor spinning?
Is there black plastic chunks under the washer?

Hi,
If you hear the motor go through the stages, but nothing is happening in the tub, the motor belt may be broken or off.
