This will either be a failing transmission or a motor problem. GE is noted for both, so it helps to consult the tech sheet inside the top console of the washer. With it, you can rule out the motor as a problem, provided you are electrically skilled and own a volt/ohm meter. Otherwise you will be guessing at the problem and that can get tedious and expensive.

The motor for your model is shown below, should you decide it is bad after consulting the tech sheet. I can also provide the gearcase if necessary, so report back after you have located the sheet and done some checking.
