GE Washer Clicks and spins, makes lights Dim

This GE Washer has worked well until now. It works fine and gets to the spin cycle then it still spins and doesn't just click but makes a loud clacking noise all while making the light in the laundry room dim. I don't let it stay in this state to long as I don't want to cause further damage.

Please Help...I cant afford to pay a repair guy 75 or so just to come out and then charge me 150 to repair.

Thanks

    I feel like I could have wrote the first request for help as my problem is exactly the same. Lights in the laundry room dimming while washing machine makes clicking noise during agitation cycle (I put a magnet on the "close switch" so it will run with door open and the agitator doesn't move like it should).



    GE Super Capacity Plus,

    Model#: WBSE2090A0WW



    any help with the original posting would be greatly appreciated!

SOURCE: Loud Noise - Spin Cycle

If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!

SOURCE: Loud Noise - Spin Cycle

As posted above, it's the bearing. There are 2, only 1 may be bad, but you should replace them both. Get SKF, part numbers below. The SKF (chicago rawhide) seal part number changed. The new number is 562737. I pounded the bearings out with a hammer and a pipe with the drum-half over a piece of wood with a hole in it. I tapped the new one's in place with a piece of wood on top of the old bearing, trying to keep it flush as I tapped it in. I also didn't get a new drum o-ring, instead I ran a thin bead of 100% silicone around the old o-ring and it worked fine. Runs very quiet now!

Seal: SKF 562737
6307-2RS bearing (inboard)
6306-2RS bearing (outboard)

SOURCE: GE washer (wjsr4160gww) makes loud noise during spin cycle

Remove the front panel and you will see two metal guides attached to the front of the frame. One of them will probably be bent and the transmission assembly will have jumped over one or the other of the guides. You need to manually pull it back to center then straighten the bent guide. May have been caused by load being out of balance or machine not properly leveled. Good luck.

GE WPXH214ACC Washer drum makes loud noise when spinning sometimes. We've had it since 2005 & never had this happen before. Washer is level, must stop & redistribute clothes to correct. Just started happening now.

SOURCE: 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.

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

Rattling noise during spin cycle


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Loud clicking/thumping in rinse and spin cycle


It doesn't look like a motor problem !!! It seems like an unbalanced tub issue. The machin has suspension dampers and suspension rods, and it's look like one of them was damaged or "run away" from its location during machin's movement. Goog luck !!
