Question about Simpson Washing Machines
Seems like the clutch has failed. Common problem when they get older. The machine will wash in one direction, but not reverse. You usually get all the clothes tangled up and causes it to keep stopping during spin. Have a look under the machine, if there is brown / black oil stains all over the bottom of the inside of the cabinet, that will be your problem. Most of the time, it wont be worth repairing.

On dryers with the old mechanical timers you can turn the knob in either direction without harming the mechanism. On either type, even electronically controlled models with a problem like you described, there are a lot of possibilities. After confirming you have power to the appliance check the thermal safety fuse located on the heater housing.

Check the paw. It is a plastic somewhat u shaped piece that sits on the bottom of the machine and is connected by a plastic lever and a solenoid. It usually breaks on the end and as such won't lock the gearbox in. If you keep running it like that there is every chance you will probably burn the motor out.

replace the transmission. this job is better done after a few dozen bottle of your favorite whiskey. Check the timer controls to ensure timer is advancing properly. tranny's are notorious on ge's for this sort of problem as well as inner basket drive blocks coming loose. ge makes alot of great appliances, this just happens to be one of them that isn't. i trust their jet engines too, although hard to work on them from 30,000ft.

Our machine , same model, was doing the same. Had a repairman cone out & it was the Motor Control unit, seems to be a fairly common problem. But now its fixed & working well.
