Question about GE Washing Machines
The washer is violently shaking when it reaches the spin cycle. We we told a bolt was loose and we needed to remove the agitator to tighten the bolt, that we could remove the agitator by pulling on it. This doesn't work. Please advise. Thank you.
Yes you need to remove the agitator to do this and there is a nut that holds the tub down these come loose alot from the factory alot of times you can remove the nut and put lock tite on the treads and re tighten and be fine but in most of the cases you need to replace the spanner nut and the split ring under ther tub at the same time to take care of the problem the split ring isnt that hard to replace you just need to remove the splash gaurd from the top of the tub and several brackets that hod the header on and just lift inner tub out and there on the transmission is the split ring it looks just as it says just a little ring with a split in it replace these and it will solve your problem but you will need a special tool to tighten the nut back due to the room in the tub (center nut spanner tool for a g/e)
