How to Reset a GE Washing Machine Stuck in Spin

GE automatic washing machines come in a variety of models, each with its own distinct set of features and functions. Every GE washing machine model features a spin cycle function. The spin cycle rotates the tub to remove excess water from clothing. If the washing machine stops on the spin cycle and will not proceed to the next part of the wash program, it needs to be reset. Resetting the washer cancels all cycles so the wash program can be restarted.

Step 1

Unplug the washing machine power cord from the electrical socket.

Step 2

Turn the cycle selection dial to a setting other than "spin" after the power cord has been unplugged for at least 30 seconds.

Step 3

Plug the power cord back in to the electrical outlet.

Step 4

Start the wash cycle over on the desired setting.
