washer repair: doesn't always spin

creekwebNovember 8, 2012

I have a toploading GE clothes washer model wksr2100t. It has been leaving the clothes wet, so I watched it cycle, and it did spin great during midcycle removing all excess water from the clothes, but it did not spin at the end of the cycle. When I turned the knob and moved it back to the part of the cycle where it had spun, it wouldn't spin again for me. I do hear the motor running at the time, but the tub just doesn't spin. The lid switch seems to be working as I do hear the motor go on when I close the lid. My question is whether this is typical for a clutch problem or is this more likely to be a timer or other electrical problem. Thanks for any help.

You might try this. It seems as though my machine has gotten sensitive to uneven loads and will not spin at the end-just runs. This seems to get it back on track for awhile at least. I don't have any problem with agitation and my machine is not this model. I do it a little quicker than she does.
