washer repair: doesn't always spin

Posted by creekweb (My Page) on

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.

RE: washer repair: doesn't always spin

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.
