Question about GE WJSR2070B Top Load Washer

1 Answer

GE Eight Cycle Washer (about 12 years old)

Thanks for your assistance. 1. This morning, my washer started leaking seriously. I opened up the back panel and discovered that a small hole in the basket (one of several) was leaking fast. As far as I could ascertain, none of the other holes were leaking. 2. Upon further inspection of the inside of the basket, I discovered a small, nail-like projectile (sharp as a nail) was projecting about 2" into the basket. I pulled on this but coiuld not draw it out of the basket. I wander what that is and how it got there. Sticking out, as it is, could rip delicate clothes during the wash cycle. And advice will be deeply appreciated. Capt. Donald Kilpela

SOURCE: GE Washer won't drain or spin

this is something that you can fix even if your not a technical person . first you have to open the washing machine front panel or back panel , second , follow the DRAIN HOSE to where its connected to a little motor, disconnect the DRAIN HOSE , take the LITTLE MOTOR out and clean it out , it could be clogged.
it happen once and find out the person put the BATH RUG SET
to wash , the rug was so old that pieces of a rubber underneath the rugs clogged the drain , so there was no rinse and no spin.
try it , I hope it helps.

SOURCE: GE top load Washer ripping clothes

I have the same GE washer with the ripping issues. I have had serviceman after serviceman out. They have continued to say I don't load the washer right or I overload. The last seviceman ordered the boot (seal) to be installed on my washer. That has been a little over a month ago and I have not had a ripping issue....fingers crossed!! I think GE is well aware of this problem and needs to do a major recall. This applicance does not live up the the cost. I have filed a claim with the GE claim dept and am going thru the process to get refunded on the clothes that were destroyed. I luckily had kept a lot of the clothes because I planned on writing a complaint letter. I have not received the reimbursement yet....we will see.

I have GE GLDT696TSS. The dishes are not clean and one time noticed water leak from the back of the washer.

You should check the water outlet - probably discharges into your sink through a garbage disposal - the water outlet is likely plugged and water can not discharge down the sink. You can remove the hose and clean it out.

It will not turn on

Hello 90262
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, you have the blinking cycle light and it will not start.

Sounds like we need to try to reset the system!

Huuum At your service!
Lets try this,
Like with an error code.
This can reset the system if it is electronic!
Unplug the appliance and wait a 5 minutes then restart it.
If you can't reach the plug, use the breaker to cut the power for 5 minutes.

It's like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
Usually it corrects some error problems if they are not serious.
Or they are sometimes just a glitch.

Let me know how it works!
Waiting for your reply!

Please remember to leave a appropriate rating when you are done!
Thank You
How old is your washer???????????????

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old washer

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your washer,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your washer is under warranty or less than four years old ,
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that washers under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your washer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new washer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive washer
eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of washers you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
Please do not for get to give a rating before you sign off!
Thank You, HUUUM
