Ge top load washer

I have a ge top load washer, that came with my manufacture home, i can't find the manual or don't even know where to look for a product #, my problem, my knob switch, won't stay out when a washing cycle has been selected, it tends to go back in, i either have to place something between the knob to keep it from going in and stopping the cycle. it seems like i have to push in the cover that has the arrow and then it starts up again, but let it go and it stops. i am really clueless and tired of having to keep checking the washer and if it is stopped, carefully pulling the knob til it catches and hope it lasts through the cycle. if needed to replace the knob how much does it run

Model number is on the top of the control panel on a white or silver sticker. It sounds like you have a bad timer, probably about $100 for the timer, maybe a little less.

I have rented a furnished flat and i dont know how to work with Hoover Nextra HNT 2135 Top Load Washer


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Methinks you could do with a manual- for now and later!
Now- unfortunately FixYa cannot provide manuals direct - members of the forum are just people from all over the world, probably working from home, and not representing any particular manufacturer ;-0)
Manual
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Tip

How it works: Late model Ge top loading washer


The late model top loading GE washer is much different than it's original models that were so much more dependable than these newer ones are. To access the innards you must forst remove the front panel. Older models had the top pop up first but these newer models have the top bolted down. To get the top up you must first remove the front panel by using downward force on the top between the tiop and the front panel. It is not easy even for eperienced techs but cuss it a minute and it will come off. Once it is off you will notice the washer has an elecetric pump. Strings and junk get into this pump. It is easy to take apart and cleanup. The tub is suspended on 4 rods and the lateral movement is kept in check by 4 rubber cord mounted to the top called bungies. The motor and tranny can easily be accessed by removing the tub from the washer. After disconecting the power cable and pump the tub lifts out. Not all GE washers use the same motor or the same transmission method. Some do not even have a tranny. I have some GE washer service manuals.

Need bolts to stabilize washer for move


Dont know if you can purchase these. First people to try are the manufactures. Otherwise, unscrew the two screws at the rear top of machine and pull backwards to remove top.Then pack some towells or rugs around the drum then replace top. Don,t forget to remove rugs at new home.!! Good luck on your move.

Removing cover assembly on GE top load washer


Is your washer a GE Profile Harmony? Do you want to know how to take the top off or the top of the agitor (pulsator)? The top of the washer has four screws in the back top behind the screen once you unscrew them the front of the washer has two clips one on each side and you have to kinda tap it with your palm to get them to pop.

Won't spin.


Your washer obviously has been over-loaded. It trips the spin switch & prevents top-speed spinning. See that you load within the machine's user manual load, not more. You can even weigh your laundry before loading to see that you dont over-load. Also see that the laundry is evenly placed within the bucket. These are suggestions.
