It sounds like you need a new clutch which is the pulley part on the motor shaft.

Enter your model # in the box on the left here to find your part. It is a pretty simple fix remove the belt and motor then take the clip off the end of the shaft the clutch lifts off the shaft. Sometimes it's a little hard to get off so you might need to use a little WD40 or Rust Buster to get it off the shaft.

I would remove it before you order the part because sometimes it's a broken retaining pin that causes this problem.

The pin you can get at the hardware store but the clutch would have to be bought at a GE dealer. The manual would be in the GE section of this forum.

You have to remove the clutch from the motor it goes through the shaft the clutch mounts on top of it.

Yes its U shaped with 1 side going over the top of the shaft that side has a little indent that helps keep it in place so you've got to lift it to get it to clear the shaft.
