Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

GE Washer top load model WDSR4110T

The agitator on my top loadGE washer is only working part of the time. There are times when I here the machine making strange noises and I open the lid and kind of twist the agitator and it gets going full speed again. Now it is gettting worse and it don't move as fast. I have also opened the washer after the cycle is complete and the clothes are completely soaked. The spin cycle didn't happen or didn't work. I then twist the dial completely around back to spin and manually "help" it to start again.

Are these 2 seperate problems? Does anyone have experience with this? I have read some of the posts about replacing agitators, just wondering if this will solve my problem. I just got laid off and would prefer fixing the problem myself.

Thanks,

DK

    Thanks for your help. I took the agitator down to my local shop and it looked okay. He suggested I check the belt (take off front cover in front of barrell, the belt is on the bottom) to make sure it wasn't loose. I took the cover off and sure enough the belt was loose. I loosened the four bolts holding the motor and slid the motor forward all of the way. The belt was now taunt and I replaced the bolts. That seems to have fixed all of the problems I had. Thanks for your help.

The agitator is the spline insert . that you can replace. The spin problem is in the clutch which is a bigger job

Ge top loader washer agitator does not work


To check the agitator. Start the washer into wash cycle. Once started Push down on top of agitator. If it catches some times or all of the time when pushing down, then then doggets are worn, under the agitator. You`ll have to remove the agitator to see these. If by pushing down on the agitator, nothing changes, Then you probably have a transmition problem. Check this and let me know what you find.

Washer will not agitate


A wears out clutch might prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. Good luck!
