GE Washer won't spin

Have a GE Prodigy top load washer with a problem. When it goes into the spin cycle, water drains out but it then has a loud bang/click sound when it tries to go into spin cycle. It does agitate but not spin. Problem is occasional but becoming more often. Any suggestions?? TIA

Hi,

Cute name, model#?? http://www.applianceaid.com/model.html Some model# helps.

If your GE washer is a plastic tub style, this will help to get inside to have a peek and hopefully get a better idea what/where the noise is coming from and what is turning or not turning during the spin mode. http://www.applianceaid.com/genew.html#new_access

And if it is one of the newer atyle ones, there has been a litany of transmission/brake problems with them - could very well be that.

When the motor turns in one direction, agitation occurs from within the gearcase. When the motor turns in the other direction, the entire gearcase spins along with the basket. If you have motor/clutch action during spin, and you see the belt rotating the gearcase pulley, then more than likely you have a problem with the gearcase itself. It is highly unlikely that you will want to tackle this sort of job as a DIY, and get it all back together correctly. If you do, you will need a special wrench to get the main nut off in order to remove the basket off the gearcase from within the tub.
