Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
My 6 year old front loading GE washing machine makes a thumping/rubbbing sound when turning. The drum appears to be mis-aligned with the drive system.It still turns and spins but the sound is constant. How does one re-align this.
You have a three armed support that holds the tub in place, this is not an easy fix, you would have to be very knowledgable of appliances and how to work on them to replace this. Basically one of your supports have either broken or the bolt has come lose. If you release the baffles inside the tub you should be able to see the mounting bolts for the support and you would be able to check the tightness of the bolts or whether or not the mount is broken. If the mount is broken in won't be cheap to fix. Hope this helps.

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.
