If the washer won’t spin but will wash, the most common problem is a bad or clogged water pump. This will cause it not to pump the water out and the washer will not start spinning until the water is pumped out. The first thing you need to do is get the water out (dip it out if you have to) or you can use a pinch off tool. Then unplug washer and if you are using a pinch off tool, pinch the hose that is between the tub and the pump. Now take the hose loose at the pump and feel in the pump to see if it's clogged. If it’s clogged, remove obstruction and if it’s not clogged then replace the pump. The part number for the water pump that fits most GE top-loading washers made after 1995 is WH23X10013 Order Here
WATER LEVEL CONTROL
If the washer won’t spin but will wash and the water is pumping out then it could be the water level control.
The water level control is located in the control panel. To check it, first unplug washer then unplug wires from the control. The terminals should be numbered 7,15 and 16, using your ohmmeter check the control. With no water in the tub there should be continuity from 7 to 15 and with the tub full, there should be continuity from 7 to 16, if not the control is bad and need to be replaced. Water level controls can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.com
If its not the pump or the water level control then it may be the timer. Timers are hard to check and vary with every model so this is a process of elimination. Timers can be purchased at AppliancePartsPros.com
The transmission can also be bad. To check this, remove the belt. Then attempt to turn the pulley by hand. It should turn freely both ways. If not the transmission is locked up and needs replacing. The part number for the transmission that fits all top-loading washers made after 1995 with the exception of the HydroWave models is WH38X10002 Order Here.
