Ge frontload washer seems like it is not aggitating... what would be the problem???

Hello there:

The first thing to check when your GE washer is not agitating, is the belt. Let me tell you how to check the belt & the clutch with out having to take the washer apart.

The belt: Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the timer knob to turn the washer on.
If the washer drains the water and then spins the way that it should, this tells you that the motor, belt & clutch are not the reason why your washer won't agitate.
A broken belt could be the reason your washer is not agitating or spinning.

The agitator: After making sure that the belt, motor & clutch are working ok, lets check the agitator.
The agitator uses a plastic agitator coupler that is couple to the transmission shaft by using splines cut in the coupler and on the transmission shaft.
Too much usage or overloading the washer too many times will wear the agitator coupler splines. With out the splines the coupler could not be coupled to the transmission shaft and that could be the cause why your washer is not agitating.

The clutch: A bad clutch could also be the reason the washer won't agitate or spin. Usually when the clutch is bad the washer will be noisy, like when you have bad brakes on your car.

The transmission: The transmission could be the reason your washer is not agitating. A common problem with the transmission is oil leaking right on top of the motor pulley and the belt.
As you can see, there could be different reasons why your GE washer is not agitating. You just need to keep checking each part until you find the problem and replace the part responsible.

“”All looked well but when the motor switched directions it locked up and started squeeling real loud and the belt was going around clutch but clutch didnt move.“”
Was this during the water fill cycle the machine? The Control Board will signal the Motor Controller to spin Motor/wash basket 50RPM in the CCW direction during water fill of the Cycle selected. This is the Spin direction of the wash basket during all spin cycles. If you can observe with the front cover off. Don’t raise the washer top from the base to far or you will spray water around the machine.

You can empty the wash tub with excess water by going into Service Mode and turning on the Drain Pump;
I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub.

Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”

Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key.

What are the 1st two digits of your Serial Number that is your series number found here;

Did your old clutch pulley use the Upper One-Way Roller Clutches bearing ring?

With the belt off the can you rotate the Clutch Pulley by hand CW direction the Wash/Agitate direction tumblers will turn. Then rotate the Clutch Pulley in the CCW direction the Spin Cycle direction. After the Clutch Pulley is rotated a few turns the Large Wrap spring in the Clutch Pulley will come under tension and the Wash Basket will rotate CCW. Someone will have to verify that for you while you are on your knees.

I'm wondering if you have the Clutch Pulley seated properly. Sorry you wasted money on the Front Struts. Did you follow my Clutch Fix post for the Clutch maintenance/replacement?

Let’s start there and try to determine if the Clutch Pulley will turn both directions by hand. If it won’t I would reseat the Clutch Pulley and try again.

See my Clutch Fix post for reseating the Clutch Pulley and the SM on page 47. Note the 1/16-1/8" gap between the Pulley face and shaft end.

The coins are normal for us folks that don’t check pockets….:)

It’s difficult to rotate by hand the pinion gears of the tranny that drive the tumblers. I have not seen any transmission lock up to date but that is possible.

Let me know if I can help. I know you have the SM the parts view is handyif you don have Sears Parts Direct

Also how much rust on the old Clutch Pulley? You may have a slight tub seal leak and I can help you with that.

I replaced my clutch on the washer about a year ago, I am getting the same error as before, dc and stops around 11 minutes to go is this still the manufacturers issue to resolve

""is this still the manufacturers issue to resolve""

Nope we are on our own.

I feel you have a slight tub seal leak causing the Clutch One-Way Roller clutches bearing to become contaminated…...again.

I would drop the Clutch Pulley out inspect and clean and look at replacing the tub seal if you feel it’s worth your while.

If the Outer Tub bearings are not causing increased rotational resistance I would change out the Tub Seal, Tranny O-Ring. This is a job but can be done by most folks that replaced the clutch. It’s comes down to can you tolerate the down time?

A couple of post if you decide to go forward with a Tub Seal replacement…… The post discuss Outer Tub Bearing replacement. You would just remove the Spinner Assembly and replace the Tub Seal and Tranny O-ring. This is a major tear down but again can be done by most DIY’ers that take on Clutch Maintenance or replacement.
Outer Bearing Tub Replacement 1.

You would need the Tub seal see Sears Parts Direct. I would also pick up the Tranny O-ring seal (series 10) and this tool

It’s cheaper to buy the Spinner Nut Locking tool and Spinner wrench separately I don’t know why.
If you decide to go forward I will offer some additional info/support……..Rich

No manule too tell me about changing o ring at

Right out of the manual

1.Remove the clutch inspection cover screws and remove the cover.

Note: When removing the clutch inspection cover, work carefully to avoid removing or damaging the quad ring in the primary cover. (the quad ring is the o-ring made of square material that seals the cover)

2.Remove the spring and lockplate.

3.Turn the clutch adjusting screw clockwise and release the ramp and coupling mechanism.

4. Turn the clutch adjusting screw clockwise to move the ramp assembly forward. Then unscrew the nut from the end of the adjusting screw and remove it.

5. Pivot the hook on the ramp to the rear of the cable end coupling. Then disconnect and remove the clutch cable from the coupling slot.

6.Turn the clutch cable counterclockwise and remove it from the primary cover.

7. Remove the O-ring from the lower end of the cable.

Washing machiene agitator can only handle small loads

The dogs are not the problem. Assuming you have the series that uses dogs, the problem would be either: a broken motor coupling that barely grabs and can move the agitation with a small load but not with anything substantial (of which it will soon slip 100% of the time and nothing will move), or the clutch is worn and slipping---- just like a bad transmission in a car; when you go on level ground, the car has no problem, but start to go up an incline and the trans cannot do the job because it slips too much. Replacing the clutch/transmission assembly of the washer is no easy task. In either case, you need to remove the motor & pump assembly; this will give you a chance to see the coupling (if it has broken fingers). If the problem is not the coupling, you need to go to the center of the machine; the trans/clutch/shaft assembly and have good tools to handle it. A big word of advise: replace the coupling even if it does not look too bad because they go bad easily and are cheap to replace while you have it all apart. Good Luck. Macgivor.

Kenmore 80 series won't spin

If it is draining then the motor is turning the pump so it is ok.
This washer has no belt so that is not the problem.
Remove the cabinet and bypass the lid switch wires and put into a spin. Watch the clutch to see if it is turning. If the clutch housing is not turning and you know for sure the coupler is not broken then you need a new transmission. If the clutch housing is turning but the basket is not spinning you have something binding the basket or you need a new basket drive and clutch.
If you have only looked at the coupler from underneath you may not be able to tell if it is broken in the center. If it is broken again your transmission is not staying in neutral drain until the water is drained. That means it is going into spin with full load of clothes and water. This puts a lot of pressure on the coupler and causes them to fail prematurely. If this is the case you will need a new transmission.
Post back if you have any questions.
