A lot of times when that type GE Hydrowave washer does not spin/agitate it can simply be resolved by resetting the motor control board. This tip i wrote explains how to reset the motor inverter board and see if that resolves the problem with the washer.

If ya try restting it and it does not work watch at the little green light on that motor board and see how many times in a row it blinks and reply with that number of times it flashes and i will tell ya what error code is being displayed

That style of washer has a transmission tube called the "mode shifter" part#WH38X10017 It has a small electrical solenoid that is supposed to shift from the agitate to spin functions... The problem happens when the entire tub remains engaged for the agitation stroke. So you would see the entire tub moving like just the agitator would normally... That causes larger than normal waves that crest and come out the back left over flow tube. You probably need to replace the mode shifter.
Heres the manual for testing...

Washer doesn't spin GE WCSR2090

does it aggitate??

the safety button is most likely broken, you can see the small hole where the figer pushes down to stop the spin cycle, if the washer does not aggitate, then most likely it the safety switch.
get it replace, or bypass(not adviseable) but only when you need it,
Water that doesnt move tend to get stinky fast!

I’m happy to help further over the phone at
