Look in back of mach for 4 shipping bolts.they are usually housed in a rubber grommet surrounded by a yellow plastic shaft.if they are there remove all 4 of them.also remove bottom access panel by taking out 2 screws(1 on each bottom corner)look for 1 or 2 yellow steel bars connecting base to tub.if they are there remove.if none of these shipping bolts or brackets are there,you have a broken basket.if that's the case,try to get your money back or buy a new mach.it is a $600 repair..good luck

Only 7 yrs old and repairman says it needs a motor control will cost 380.00? GE WSXH208A1WW Its only me home and I don't wash more than 2-3 loads a week. Is this common?


That is about the right price. Here is a link to the part and you could replace the part yourself. Just remove the 2 screws that hold the front bottom kick plate on and remove it. The control board will be on the bottom right side toward the back of the machine.

GE front load washer WSXH208A1WW belt slips off


There is a belt tensioner pulley. If it is failed - your belt won't properly tension.

It appears your tensioner has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Changing the belt on a GE front loading washer


Hello , i can try to help , I have always got these belts on by starting the belt on the small pulley/motor , then rolling it on the large pulley , kinda like putting a bike chain on. Let me know if you have any other questions and how it turns out.

Grease on clothes?


This is a 50 year old problem on washers.  All brands.  You just got lucky on this one.  
If you buy a new one, consider a unit built by Whirlpool.  They also make Kenmore and others.
