Can the clutch on a ge s4200B1WW be replaced and how do you do it ? Is the clutch attached to the motor in a way that I can remove the clutch from the motor? Do I need to purchase the complete motor and clutch?

    Hi Docjohn
    Thanks for the reply
    Got the motor off, took off the snap ring on the clutch, the outer section of the clutch came off, but the inner section of the clutch is still on the motor shaft. I tried hammering the shaft out but can only get it part of the way off ( up to the key) Any suggestion how I might get it completely off? or are you not to take it off. I looks like a press fit at the factory.

Agitator not spinning/moving during wash cycle (although it does spin during the spin cycle)


hELLO THERE:
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. an to repair it. Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

Our GE washing machine makes a horrible sound during the spin cycle. It is only a couple of years old. Everything seems to be working fine otherwise, just tremendously noisy during this cycle. This just...


you will need to take a look at the clutch which sits on the top of the motor. if it comes apart, and it can if the machine is overloaded, you will need to replace the clutch. once you remove the "clutch clip", it is horseshoe shaped, you will need to replace it. you cannot reuse it as it won't hold. hope this helps you.

Washing machine wont agitate


yes its belt.he is very correct.but many other possibilities check that also ----------- It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.


  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.


If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

GE Prodigy Washing machine making clunking noise


One common problem area is the clutch assembly. The clutch is built on top of the motor, the motor drives the clutch and the clutch assembly drives the rest of the washer. The clutch gets very noisy when parts inside are worn out. The shoes lining that drives the inner drum of the clutch wear off and you will get a metal on metal sound. Clutches often can be rebuilt, but sometimes they are too worn and replacing the whole clutch is the best repair. Please use this link here for clutch replace and repair info. The belt and pump may be the next items to check for noises. How to access the washer. Clutch repair help.

GE Washing Machine Replacement Motor - Capacitor? Relay? Schematic?


The new units have all of your schematics, capacitor and a higher price for a reason. With GE I avoid used parts because there is so much electronics you don't want to fry. The wire harness leads match the old and there should not be an extra wire, were would it go if there is not a receptacle for it?
I looked up your unit and the motor replacement is WH20X10009 for the model you quoted. As of now GE is has updated this to model wh20x10006 for around 263 dollars.

Ge washer motor


You ;listed it as an Amana, but said it is a GE. I will give you direcions for a GE. If its not, let me know. First, be sure the unit is unplugged and water line is off. Underneith the motor, down right above the belt, you will see 4 nuts that hold the motor to the mounting plate. Remove these nuts, then slide the belt off. Lift the motor slightly, then aim the top of the motor back towards the middle of the unit. Keep tilting and moving the motor backwards until the clutch clears the mounting plate. Slide the motor now towards you and remove. Replace motor following any new instructions that come in the package. Good luck, and let me know if you need further instructions.

Is it the clutch or something else?


Im not truly sure if there is anyway of testing the clutch per say. Did you remove the front cover and visually look at the system. You can load up the unit, and see when it goes into spin if the clutch is turning while the motor is going. Also, be sure you take in the fact that GE really (REALLLLLLLLY) likes these clutches, so much the dang near cost the price of a new motor kit (which also comes with a new clutch). Also be aware that sometimes these clutches can be a real bear to remove off the motor shaft, especially if you have had a leak or moisture getting down there. I really doubt that it would be a clutch though. If the unit agitates ok, then it would be doubtful that the clutch would work either way. I would probably say that there is a problem with the brake system possibly sticking or malfunctioning, which would entitle you to replace the entire transmission assembly (look on ebay, no Sears, wayyyyy to expensive to buy anything from Sears). This is a pretty good job to replace the transmission, and you almost have to have some special tools (spanner wrench to remove the tub). It can be done though. Let me know how it comes outs, and please write if you have further need or more information. Thanks so much.

Final spin cycle problem


Sounds like maybe the clutch is worn?? Ge has several versions of this washer out some use a clutch and some dont Does yours have a clutch attached to motor or is it a solid pulley? Also GE uses the slow speed to start the spin and then kicks into high one or 2 mins into final spin. Is this noticable or does it sound like it starts slow and then never shifts???
