Question and Answers

Q:

Why is my GE washer not spinning?

A:

On this model I suspect that the hub nut is loose. Open the washer lid & see if you can feel if the spin basket is loose. If the spin basket is loose the control board will sense this & shut the unit down. Please see the images provided that explain the repair procedure & how to reset the control.

I took the nut off of the air bell but the air bell will not come off. Is there something else holding it? I have pulled on it but it won't budge. Any suggestions?

A:

You will just have to break it. It is most likely frozen onto the splines (see image below) of the shaft by hard water minerals. The bolt is the only anchor.

From the description you give I suspect the problem is with the mode shifter assembly. You would call this a transmission on another washer.

Replacing this part is something a technician should do. It would be a difficult do-it-yourself project.

I replaced the belt and it works now but the metal clanking noise is still there when it agitates. I cannot afford to hire someone at this time. Do you have any instructions or diagrams that can help. I am very mechanically inclined. It just seems like their should be a way to retighten the drive pully so it stops moving that one inch of space.

From the description you give I suspect the mode shifter assembly will have to be replaced. The images below should give you an idea of what might have to be done. I hope this helps. Let me know and I'll try to send more if needed. On a scale of 1 (easy) to 10 this repair would be about a 9.

OK the belt tore up again after 4 months of use. I took the washer apart. The tub is out as described in the images above. I turned it upside down and took off the drive pulley. Here's the thing I can't figure out. The metal to metal noise I described before is being made by the drive pulley when you turn it back and forth the notches that are supposed to keep it from spinning loose have too much space in between them so it travels a 1/4 of an inch before it hits the mode shifter to spin it. Aren't the teeth/notches supposed to fit snug when you install the drive pulley? I can't tell that the teeth on the shifter or the pulley are broken? Do I replace the mode shifter or the drive pulley or both?

I also have another problem. Just before the belt tore up again I was having issues with the timer. It stopped advancing from one cycle to the next and we had to manually turn the timer to get it to drain, spin, refill and agitate. Is this the mode shifter that's bad or is it the timer?

A:

The not advancing problem sounds like a timer problem. One thing to try is the motor has a control board on top of it. Check and see if you notice the LED flashing twice or if it flashes at all.

I believe the mode shifter is at fault. The images below may be useful to you. One of the images shows the teeth/notches you asked about.
