GE Washer Drains But Won't Spin

My GE washer is 3 years old (model#GHWP1000MOWW), it will drain the water out, but will not spin. It makes a sound like it's spinning, but it isn't. Thanks.

Howdy. I had this happen to me about a year back. After me researching this on the web. I decided it was the lid switch. When you put down your lid to the washer... it starts a mechanism. I also talked with people where I ordered my parts from and they agreed... it was the lid switch.

I ordered it (less than $50.00 including s/h), and then installed it ourselves (me and my husband). I found out how to replace it by using youtube. I watched the video several times and even kept it up and was running back and forth from the washer to the computer. We got it replaced and it worked like a dream.

Hi Steve,

This is my exact model and issue with my GE stackable. The washer is not spinning. When you close the lid and start the cycle everything works straight down to agitating and draining the water, but the spinning doesn't work so it just sits there with sopping wet clothes you have to manually wring out! I just wanted to know if you were ever able to locate the problem. Sorry I couldn't help you myself but any suggestions would be appreciated thanks!
