Question about GE WBSE2090A Top Load Washer
I have a Profile washer that's about 16 years old. The only problem it has is in the middle of a wash or rinse cycle, it just stops.
It doesn't do this all the time, but when it does I have to keep stop-starting it about every 5 minutes.
It has a couple of secondary symptoms that make me think it's not a timer issue.
1. During agitation, it appears that only one of the directions actually turns the load. This creates what looks like a slow 'spin' cycle during agitation, and if the water level is set to high, some of the water will spill over as a result.
2. When it is NOT having this problem, the end of a spin cycle will stop relatively quickly (within 10 seconds or so). When it IS having this problem, the end of a spin cycle will take well over a minute to completely stop.
It almost appears as if a gear of some sort isn't catching.
Does anyone have a solution to this? I would really appreciate it.
Repair requires replacement of the transmission / break assembly. Unless you are really attached to this machine, it's time for a new machine. Average life of a washer is about 11 years doing 8 loads per week. Look into the front load machines, which use about 1/4 the water and spin about twice as fast, and are gentle on fabrics while cleaning very well. Please don't bother rating this, as non FixYa ratings drop my rating, and I'm sure you don't want to shoot the messenger.
