GE Washer will not spin or rinse with new Timer
« on: June 02, 2011, 08:44:49 PM »
Any help is Appreciated,

I have a Top Load GE Washer (WJSR1070A1WW) about 10 years old with two problems.
The Washer will not SPIN or Rinse when needed.  It will Agitate and Drain fine.  I checked the lid switch and it works fine, during agitation, lift lid and motor stops.  Responds normally.  I replaced the TIMER to no avail.  I also took off the Belt and still no change.  Motor will not spin.
Pulley does move freely in both directions with belt off.  Nothing binding on basket.

Let me know what else it could be?

George

But it does Agitate, thus using the motor...Motor is not dead
Why does it not "Rinse" if it is the Motor?
