Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
I have a GE WSXH208A1WW that is about 6 years old...was running beautifully until I overloaded it with sheets towels and regular clothes. On Final Spin it started making a dreadful noise so I shut it off. I unloaed the towels and sheets and set it back to final spin--noise continues. We took the back off and nothing seems out of the ordinary...we're not sure what happened but can't afford to call in a service call on it...we are a desperate family of 5 that needs our washer back... :( Any solutions? I'm not familiar with the parts of the washer so details would be greatly appreciated. :)
Check the spring that hold the drum in place. They are about 4-5 inches long on the top of the drum at about 2 and 10 o'clock. The springs suspend the drum and if broken the drum will bang around. About $40 to order springs online
Also check on the bottom at about 4 and and 7 o'clock because there are 2 shock absorbers that help keep the drum from just bouncing and bouncing with no end in sight. Again about $40 to change each one.
I am in the process of the first repair and doesn't seem too difficult. The second was done about 6 months ago and was not too difficult but was awkward because you had to lay on the floor to get the replacement pins in place.

Have you tried running the unit through the spin cycle with nothing in it? I would try that , but Unfortunately bearing (the whole back half of the washer) on those units usually last about 5 to six years then the go bad and start sounding like a train. if it makes that loud noise with nothing in it don't bother paying for a service call. I hate to break it to you better you hear it from me here then after my company charges you 90 bucks for me to tell you it will cost 1000 to repair. good luck let me know what happens.
