GE Washer Spin Cycle Problem

My GE WPSQ4160T washer has gone through 2 clutches in the last year. It works fine in all modes except the spin cycle where it sometimes will not spin the tub with medium to large loads. The washer is NOT being overloaded. The motor is coming on but the clutch is slipping in the spin mode and gets very hot. The belt has also been replaced. Any help appreciated.

    Catriver, Thanks for the feedback. The motor seems to be working fine as far as I can tell. The wash cycles work fine. When the spin cycle starts, the motor engages the clutch, but will not turn the drum do to the load. When I first replaced the clutch, it worked fine for about 2 weeks, then began slipping again. Does this sound like the motor? What is this update kit you mentioned?

    Thanks,

    Gnarley

    I finally solved this problem. It had nothing to do with the motor. The brake mechanism below the transmission was causing friction when the spin cycle started and was causing the clutch to slip. This was caused by a leaking tub seal earlier which apparently dripped on the brake. I sprayed the brake with ACF-50 anti corrosion spray and all is well. - Gnarley

    Where exactly did you apply the spray to the brake?

    This is the exact problem I have and I have replaced the belt,motor and clutch.
    I'd like to know what exactly was the spray lubricant that was used,where I can buy it and exactly where it needs to be sprayed. Please reply back asap.

Gnarly, do you have the updated motor, harness and start cap? If it goes into spin and does this chunk a chunka chunka bit. Take a meter to the white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V, replace the motor with the new kit. What the motor is doing is jogging between high to low speed. Catriver..post back.

Gnarley, did you try what was suggested about the updated motor. I am having the same issue, but am wondering how you tested your clutch for overheating vs. the obvious; touch.

Washer won't spin


Check the washer motor. Make sure that the motor is getting correct voltage and is working and spinning when you turn it on. It sounds like the motor is bad. You can remove the back cover to get to the motor to check it out

GE WASHER WJRR4170G0WW-SPIN Cycle does not work- just make sound.


My washer is 2 years old and this is 1/2 the cost I paid for it new. My review of this product after 35 years of technical experience; GE products (Hotpoint)aren't worth buying any longer.

The problem is the Motor. There is an electronic PC Board attached to the top of the motor and under the drip protector, which protects the PC Board. On this board, there is a green flashing light which displays trouble codes by flashing. Unplug the washer, remove the 3 screws from behind the control panel. Slowly pull the control panel toward you and slide it to the right to release. Inside the washer, there is a diagram with the trouble codes printed in the lower right hand corner. Everything else is self explained. Flashes indicate the problem and the solution is all written. Since I have the same problem and a technician, this is a defective product GE has discontinued and re-manufactured. After phoning GE the motor # Normal 0 WH20X10051 cost $252.25 to ship to my location.
