The washer (#WBSR3140GWW) does not spin on the spin cycle and the clothes come out very wet. What could be wrong??


Hello,

The most probable trouble is the belt is streched and needs replacing. To replace belt remove front panel by placing a putty knife about two inches inward from the ends of front panel push the putty knife in and release clips for front panel.remove panel and belt will on bottom under the motor. On a lot of GE washers the oil in transmission leaks and soaks belt in oil so soon new belt will be oil soaked and needing replacment again if ya see a lot of oil in base belt will fix temporarly till its oil soaked,the fix then is to replace washer since trans. replacement is more than new washer

Washer won't spin unless I give the belt a little push to get it to start moving. The belt looks warn and has a small crack in it. Is the belt the only problem or is there something else I need to...


Hello,

Sounds to me that the belt defiently needs to be replaced since it is cracked and streched.
Hate to tell ya wait and see but replace the belt for sure and see what happens,but to check a little further if the pulley that tightens the belt(idler pulley) is not missing a chunk of plastic and it spins free when flung with your finger i would say its ok, also you can check the spring on idler pulley by pushing it in and as long as it returns to where it was quickly its ok and just the belt is needed

Hope this helps and if it does please give me 4 thumbs up

Washer wont spin


You may have some small piece of clothing stuck in the water pump. Pull clothes out, empty water out, turn over and remove pump and check for obstructions. If nothing in there see if it is frozen from moving, if not belt may be loose by being streched. Replace belt if needed.

Agitator not moving


Sounds like your belt has either broke or just come off. Tilt machine back, look under for the belt. If belt looks Ok you still might want to replace it with a new one. Normaly when they fall off they have streched and will not saty on.

I have a top loading washer model #4420716...it will spin but make very loud noise I am wondering if a belt or something broke...it sounds like the basket is hitting the sides of the washer.


Hi,

could be the brakes, if the loud noise is like a screech probably your brake rotor and lining need replacing.

Check and let me know.

Thanks.

Won't hardly spin


the back and fourth motion is normal. we have a ge and it does the same thing. for the slow spin and burt rubber smell the drive belt is more than likely streched, the fast fix is to replace the belt. HOPE IT WORKS FOR YOU!

How do you change the belt if it is slipping?


GN. This model does not have a belt, it's a direct drive washer. It could be a couple of things. Is this happening during spin? If so you may have a worn drive block or something as simple as something between the tub and basket. The clutch and brake assy. could be failing. It's hard telling without being there. I will attach a couple of pictures so you can get and ideal...Catriver..post back.
