Hello all. First let me say this seem like a great forum to get answers about dumb machines LOL.:)

Ok on to the problem i have. I have a GE Washer Model # wjsr2080v3ww  And i think the spin cycle is out everything else works great on the washer just when it is done the clothes are soaked to the bone still like i just pulled em out of a bath tub full of water :?. Any suggestions on how to check and what to replace would be great. Thanks in advance.

Start by checking the lid switch.  If it's stuck open, the washer will never spin.

When it does not spin is the motor running? Or is the Motor dead?  Does it agitate ok?

Yes the motor is good it agitates just fine the only thing not working is the spin cycle

Then the first thing to check would be the lid switch or see if the plunger on the lid that pushes on the switch is missing.

Ok the lid switch is working i can hear it click every time i open and close the lid. The motor keeps running during the spin cycle and it started to spin for a few seconds then stoped and would not spin any more. I reset it sevral times to the spin cycle and i get the same result a few seconds of spining and then nothing. Once again thanks to everyones help on this

Remove the front of the washer and see if the belt is slipping and make sure the motor keeps running. These have known issues with bad motors that kick in and out and these transmissions also fail.  If the motor is ok and the belt seems ok, not slipping, suspect a bad transmission which has a 5 year part warranty.
