Ge Washing Machine Won't Spin


Recommended Posts

My GE washing machine won't spin, but it will agitate, fill and drain.

I've done some work already and I know this:

The motor is fine, it spins when it's on spin mode, but the basket doesn't. I took the belt off and gave it a go while it was on it's back with the clutch off, and the motor's shaft spins perfectly.

For the transmission however, if I try to rotate the pulley counter-clockwise manually it turns fine, but if I try to turn it clockwise, it barely turns and just kind of blocks there.

When everything is assembled and I'm using the washing machine as I normally would, when the machine is on spin cycle it does the same as the transmission pulley, it barely moves (like an attempt to start spinning) and then immediately gets blocked.

I know there is a brake and it is as if like the brake wasn't letting go.

Thanks for any help it is much appreciated!
