My top load GE fills, drains, spins, but does not agitate. Agitator coupler or timer control?


The most likely cause of this is a worn out agitator coupling. To see if this is the problem with your machine. Grasp the agitator and twist back and forth. If there is movement without turning the tub you most likely need a coupling. Reach into the washer and try to turn the agitator by hand and if you can turn it freely the agitator coupling the coupler is out and it has to be replaced. ----------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

What will cause black grease stains on clothes in a GE washer, when the clothes are not greasy going in. Agitator seems a little loose.


It maybe a bit of grease worked it's way down inside the agitator,check if there is a way to "torque" down the device.

Knocking noice in agitation cycle


Do you get same sound if you run through a wash cycle empty (no clothes?) using detergent? If so, then likely a basket support has come loose (check deep inside along top ring). If not, then you may be overloading washer (unless using different sized loads), or the agitator is not working like it should, and basket is torquing.

Agitator is slipping- GE model WJRR4170G top load washer


IF the agitator is like the ones in the older models, it will just pull straight up and off of the transmission shaft.

Inside the agitator there is a rubber splined insert with an aluminum center. The soft aluminum strips out causing the grinding sound. Very common to happen.

We used to use a special puller to remove that part and then press a new one back in.
Voila! Repaired agitator!!

Most any appliance parts store should be able to look up your model # and tell you if that agitator can be resplined.
