All of a sudden my washer won't spin. It sounds like it is but it doesn't revolve. Does this sound like it might be a solenoid?

I had the same problem. First make sure your washing machine is level, if it is. Here's is what I did. I stuck a long item like a screw driver in the hole on the washing machine where that little thing on the lid goes in. My machine then started to spin, I did that a few times. Now all I do is slam the lid shut and sit a large heavy item on top of the lid, because the lid was not connecting with the washing machine itself.

I have a GE super capacity plus washing machine that is not going through the final spin, leaving my clothes soaked. Everything else works fine during the rest of the cycle. Please help!
Mine did the same thing, it turned out to be the transmission was worn out from (gulp) my overloading it with heavy denims. Oops, and it was pricey to repair!
