How do you clean the washing machine. Mine smells and needs to be cleaned. I was told to pull out the agitator but that is impossible it seems.

Re: ge washing machine model wip4013srw how to fix...

Unidentified buzzing noise in top loader machines is often due to a jammed or seized drain pump, especially if the pump has its own motor - sometimes just opening the front of the pump (usually under a panel at the base of the front, possibly behind a small - 3-4 inch - panel to one side or other) will clear it. behind the pump cover will be a sealed plug or similar, usually needs a half turn to undo. small pieces of wood or plastic sometimes are the cause, and may be "floating" on the drum side of the drain pump so may not be visible immediately. Make sure the machine is unplugged and check with your fingers to see if the pump blades rotate freely - they will have some resistance, but should not feel like you are pressing against something solid. If you still have the manual for the machine, somewhere you would expect to find detailed instructions for a user to clear the pump - it is not usually a difficult or complicated job however some machines have a very different drain system. You may have a certain amount of water comes out over the floor - this is normal. On an optimistic note, many of these machines are still functioning after more than five years with no problems, so it is likely to be minor. If you suspect the electronic control to be the reason for the problem, it may just be that it will not continue a cycle without properly draining, even if the drum appears to be draining adequately - check the drain pump. The pulley attached with string is slightly unusual - perhaps this is as a result of an old bodged repair and needs to be resecured - without more detail or a photo this is hard to say. Best solution for that would be if you could find a similar machine, possibly in a second-hand shop and ask to look at the base to see if there is anything obviously different with your machine.

I have a GE Front load washer model # WHDVH660HWW. Everytime it goes into spin cycle the machine vibrates/shakes and it keeps stopping and then tries to reset. Eventually shutsdown. I ahve to open door...

Sounds like one of the internal suspension/dampening units for the drum unit has broken or become unattached. Am not certain what this machine has but removal of top and rear cover should allow you to inspect the items and arrange replacement as required.

You may have a broken tub support. This repair won't be cheap and I would not advise self repair as this is a complete tear down of the machine.

GE Washing Machine (model # GUSR2LOOT) drain problem

Check for a blockage in the water pump. If it does not drain first it does not spin. Check for power to the drain pump motor.If no pump blockage check the lid switch for continuity. No continuity, replace the lid switch.

Washing machine filled with water then quit working.

I pulled the back off and found where the noise was coming from. It was not the motor but I didn't know what the part was. I called an 800 number for G.E. sales and parts and spoke with someone about the dryer model number and he figured out what the washer model number was. I told him what I heard and where I heard it. He said only two parts make a humming sound: the motor and the water valve. I found a local parts dealer and bought a new water valve for $11.93 and now my washer is working again!

Loose tub on GE WJSR2080V

Reach (or look) over the tub, just under the metal top, at the four corners of the machine to see if the rubber tab dampening straps are OK. (not broken) If broken, use putty knife to push in 2 spring clips at very top of front panel (a couple inches in from the L and R side) and pull to take front panel off. Remove two 1/4 hex head screws holding top to side panels. Remove top. (looks like your model has a lid switch which can be unplugged by the back splash.)
Also check that the inner tub does not rock independently of the outer tub. If it does, pull agitator and tighten large left hand threaded nut.
