GE WHRE5550HWW Excessive Shaking in spin cycle

My GE washer which is only 1.5 years old mind you shakes excessively in the spin cycle. This happened about 6 months ago and the GE repair came and fixed the issue. The top of the basin which has a plastic ring was shaving off plastic pieces when this happened. The GE guy replaced the ring and the nut that holds the agitator / tub in place. He said the nut was stripped. Well now 8 months later it's happening again and I check the nut and it is not stripped and is securely tightened. This is really an annoyance as every load spins uncontrollably and the washer girates and bangs into our dryer. We have to go downstairs and try and rebalance the load just about every load. Please help as I'm so frustrated I'm ready to just go buy a new washing machine! I hate to do this as the machine we have is only 1.5 years old! What a rip!

My 2000 camry engine shakes when idling


my 2000 camry also shakes when idling. Looks like the radiator fan is culprit, but havent had time to change out yet. looks like old blades on fan broke off making it unbalanced when spinning to cool off causing excessive shaking. When driving its cool enough where that particular fan motor does not need to spin, therefore no shaking. possible solution is replace the fan that is wobbling.

Drum knock when spin cycle


Hello.
Noises are common when using a two-in-one washer and dryer, as clicking or whirring is part of the cleaning process during the transition to the next cleaning process. The GE Spacesaver washer and dryer combo uses a top-loading washer stacked beneath the front-loading dryer, and uses an agitator that makes noises throughout the spin cycle. Although whirring or clicking is normal, other noises or malfunction indicates a problem with the washer that requires minor troubleshooting. Professional repair is necessary if the washer continues to experience problems during the spin cycle, as there may be a problem with the washer's agitator.
1 Open the washer's door and check the balance of the load's clothes. Clothes that are unevenly distributed around the agitator cause excessive shaking and result in an imbalance during the spin cycle. Reduce the load's size by removing clothing if the washer's drum is overloaded.
2 Push "Start/Pause" to pause the spin cycle and turn the washer's cycle knob to the "Off" position. Turn the knob to "Spin Only" and press "Start/Pause" to reset the cycle.
3 Turn the wrench counterclockwise or clockwise around the unit's legs to adjust the appliance's balance. The legs are adjustable with the help of a wrench to ensure the unit does not shake while in use. An unleveled unit shakes as it spins, and causes excessive squealing or rattling as it attempts to dry the clothes.
4 Touch "Start/Pause" on the front of the washer's control panel and unplug the washer/dryer unit's power cord from the electric oultlet. Wait two minutes and plug the power cord back into the electric outlet. Push "Start/Pause" to resume the spin cycle.
Thanks.

Excesive Shaking during spin cycle


Your washer has self adjusting rear legs . Tilt the machine foreward and look at the back legs . If one is stuck in , use a screwdrive and pry it out till both legs are in the out position . Set washer back down slowly and the rear legs will automatically adjust .

GHW9100LW randomly stops during cycles, has a severe clicking noise


the water leaking back in may be due to a fill valve not fully shuting off allowing water to leak into washer after shut off...reclean pump ck as far as possible into pump itself something may be hung in impeller the shaking may be due to excess water in clothes causing off balance and shaking ..cleaning pump may solve problem..if possible pull pump completely out to clean ck pump impeller to be sure it has not come loose on motor shaft this would also cause slow or no pump out ..if impeller is loose replace pump..good luck
