Question and Answers

Q:

I have a GE washer model# whdsr209g2ww that as overflowed 2 times in the last 24 hours.

A:

Thank you for your question. Flooding twice in 24 hours would be upsetting.  Your washer has a couple of components that may be responsible. If the water fills when the washer is agitating or shut off, the water valve is most likely the problem and needs to be replaced. The water valve can stick open if faulty. If the washer fills while cycling, I would suspect the pressure switch hose.  If air pressure is not properly transmitted to the pressure switch from the tub through the air pressure tube, then the washer will keep filling. It can be removed and cleared. It may be the pressure switch, but is more likely the hose. If the water floods while draining, I would check for a clogged or incorrectly installed drain hose. Parts if needed can be ordered at Sears Parts Direct. The diagrams will also guide you to parts locations.  The image below will help access inside the cabinet.  Remember to disconnect power to the washer before any service or repairs. If further help is needed, please reply.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

GE Washer not agitating

A:

Allow me to add that all other features seem to working fine. I washed a light load with the lid open and magnets placed on the switch so that I could assess the problem. The agitator is a single piece type with no separate top and bottom. My problem is therefore the entire agitator piece.

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry for the problem with your GE WHDSR209G2WW Top Load Washer.  First try to pull up and remove the agitator.  The agitatoe sits on top of an agitator coupling.  See the image below.  The coupling is mounted to the transmission with a screw.  If the screw is loose then the transmission may not drive the agitator.   With the agitator removed  you should see the coupling moving back and forth.  If not then remove the coupling and see if the transmission is moving in a back and forth movement.  You can replay below with any additional details for further assistance.

A:

If by the coupling you mean part 310 from the diagram, that is snapped into the bottom of the agitator. I have removed the agitator and underneath is spline coming up from the transmission that the agitator bolts onto. But the tranmission is not accessible beyond that from the basket only from beneath. It appear I would need to remove the motor and then remove the drum from the unit to acess this. Please advise.

A:

Scott, the coupler should be mounted to the top of the transmission shaft. The screw broke or cam off which allowed the coupler to stay stuck inside the agitator. The coupler can become stuck in the agitator but the coupler should stay mounted to the top of the transmission. If the top of the transmission where the screw mounts the coupler is rusted out or stripped and even a new scrw will not stay in place then the transmission may need to be replaced. If the coupler can not be removed from the agitator then the agitator and coupler will also need to be replaced. Replacement might be a better option.

A:

During diassembly, the bolt to the transmission was accessible through the agitator. The disassembly instructions attached to the unit also specified it to be done this way. I removed the agitator cap and unscrewed the screw through the agitator then lifted it free. You may in the picture notice the hole through the center of the agitator. Nothing I have incountered yet has been noticeably broken. There is rust on the transmission spline. How would I know if the trans unit needs to be replaced?

A:

Well its a moot point now bolt has broken off inside of the transmission spline, I will have to replace the transmission now. But you were correct in your response upon closer inspection, the last time it was service it was assembled incorrectly with the bolt installed from inside the agitator not below it (which may have cause some of this) thus leading to my confusion. Thank you for your help.

A:

I'm sorry the motor was not the correct solution you your problem.

I believe I can help you with this problem but a few more details would be helpful.

You say the washer will not spin or agitate but you don't mention if the motor is running.

If the motor doesn't run at all the the lid switch might be at fault and I'd suggest you start by checking it. The lid switch can be checked for continuity if you have access to an ohm meter.

I hope this helps. You can reply with a few more details for further assistance.
