There are 4 suspension rods that hang the outre tup from the top frame. One is the came off during the off balance load. Easy to put back on...Remove the front panel by inserting a putty knife where the top of the machine and the front panel meet inline with the lid opening while pulling towards you. You will then be able to see the front rods. The back two are harder to see but hopefully it is only one of the front rods that needs to be reset. When you see it and compare to one of the ones that didn't come loose, it will be obvious how it is attaches.

I have a GE Adora top-load washing machine. The washer fills up and overflows with water on all settings. Any ideas why?


  • You could have a bad level sensor or a pinched/severed/unattached vacuum hose which goes to the sensor device. The washer cannot determine how much water the tub is filling so the water keeps going in. I would check that the vacuum hose is simply not connected and that would be the easiest fix. The sensor device is usually located inside the control panel area and you can start there.

GE top load profile washer won't spin. It starts


The tub hangs on 4 support rods. Lateral movement is kept in check with 4 bungy cords bolted to the top of the tub. If that washer is not level the tub will hang to one side and the fancy controls will declare an error. Make sure all your rods are good (they drag the base of the machine when worn out and make a heck of a racket) and the bungys are not stretched and the machine is level.

GE adora WHDRE526EWW when started it begins to fill then stops filling and have to restart sometimes three to four times help!!!.


I wish I had a solution, I have the same issue. My WHDRE526EWW Top Load washer stops intermittently sometimes while filling up, sometimes while rinsing, sometimes while washing and sometimes while spinning. I just have to guess when it's going to stop and check on each load frequently to restart it when it stops. Sometimes I can't even get it to start spinning again and I will have to unplug it and plug it back in and then it will spin. Hope someone can help!

GE Adora front load washer overloaded now won't start


Washers - Resetting Electronic Controls on a Washer

If there is a pause in the washer cycle, the controls will lock up. The pause can occur because of a power failure or it was put in the test mode at the factory.

Also, if the washer was stopped before the cycle was complete or the consumer has pushed the stop/pause button to temporarily stop the cycle and the cycle is not reset. Over a period of 24 hours, the washer will pump out and spin, but will stay in the final spin.

To correct the situation, shut off the circuit breaker for 30 seconds or unplug the washer, then turn the timer knob around and back to any position other than final spin. Verify the water is turned on and restore power. This should resolve the issue.

GE Top load washing machine stop and stars during spin cycle


I had the same problem. The machine will do the washing cycle. At the start of the spin cycle it would start turning with a lot of clicking sounds and then would stop spinning. The water pump would continue working without problem. The motor tries to start again in about three minutes, however, repeats the same behavior. I have a reasonable mechanical and electrical knowledge. I was sure that the overload protection switch of the motor was tripping. I opened up my machine---a GE super capacity top loading machine. Took off the belt and turned the transmission pulley. It turned easily in both directions (washing and spinning). Hence, the transmission was good. Next, I checked any water accumulation in the spin tub. If the water is not drained properly before the spin cycle, it would overload the motor. There was no water clogged in the spin tub. Finally, I dismantled the electric motor. There was a clutch assembly underneath the motor pulley. I dismantled it and found the clutch very dirty with some grease that had turned sticky. I cleaned the assembly thoroughly with alcohol and assembled back the machine. The machine is running perfect after that. Conclusion: The clutch assembly was mis-functioning. Reason: When the spin cycle starts, the spin tub is very heavy and cannot achieve the full speed quickly. On the other hand, electric motors must get to their running speed fairly quickly or else overheating of motor would happen. A proper functioning clutch allows the motor to run at their optimal speed while transferring enough torque to the spin tub to slowly speed up the tub to its fullest. In my case, the clutch was sticky, thus overloading the motor which would trip as it overheats.
