Replacing the glass lid on a GE profile washer

Hi,
my parents in law had their tempered glass lid on their GE Profile washer shatter, when they weren't even using it. GE coughed up a replacement lid, but didn't come to the party for the installation. Can someone please advise us on how we can safely install the new lid ourselves? We don't want to force it and risk shattering the replacement. Thank you very much.

    Hi,

    thought I should mention that I don't know the exact model of their washer, I am perhaps hoping that there is a generic method in installing the glass lids on all of GE's Profile washers. Thanks again.

It sound like you have a blocked pump. Remove the pump from the machine and check where do you have this clogged, inside the pump or in one of the pipes connected to it. Good luck!

I see this pretty regular. You have a bad transmission. This is very common with the older GE's. To replace the transmission will run around $340 / $400. Not sure about your area. Just be glad you got this much use out of it, you are one of the very few that have. From 1998 till 2007 I owned my on repair company where I did GE's warranty work in my area for them. During that time period. When I found a GE washer under warranty doing what you are describing. GE would warranty the whole machine. They would have me destroy the machine after I would deliver the customer a band new one. GE knows they had a bad transmission and it cost them a lot of money. It was cheaper for them to replace the washer than have me repair it. The transmission list price was $298.00 back then. A word of advice, when you replace it. Buy a Whirlpool, Kenmore, Maytag. These brands hold up the best. I have the least service calls for Whirlpool and Kenmore. Both are made by the same people. Kenmore is made for Sears. Good Luck.
Please rate this solution if helpful. Thanks

It is under warrenty call the store where you bought it and have them look at it. If you mess with it it will void your warrenty, belt may not be working or transmisson may not be shifting. The house call will be at no charge.

SOURCE: GE Profile front loader washing machine is leaking

Hello, this is usually the door seal, most machine incorporate a one piece combined door seal and outer drum seal(often just called a DOOR GASKET), the door seal are put in on the front panel first in the factory, then the drum assembly is put in and the seal pushed over the outer drum. This means a lot of stripping down has to be done just to replace the drum to the door seal.
Thanks

I have a Frigidaire Caprice double oven, 45 years old, the inner glass panel on the top oven door has shattered. I am not having any luck with finding replacement glass, any ideas?


take a profile of the glass shape (cut out the shape from cardboard) and go to a glass supply shop ( glass windows , doors , shower screens etc)
they should be able to cut and then temper the glass to make it heat proof for the door
if they cannot temper it they should be able to tell you where you can get it done

Broken outer door glass


Hi, I don't know where you live, I live in France and here you can simply go to a DIY store and they will cut you a piece of tempered glass to size. Not cheap but may be cheaper than going to the manufactures. I have replaced my woodburner fire glass and that gets alot hotter than your oven outer glass. Hope that is useful

When the installer tested my newly purchased GE Profile washing machine, I saw him test the incoming water temperature with the lid open. How did he defeat the lid switch?


Hi, open lid , look carefully there's a slot where you can activate switch, use something none metalic, like pen and press to activate.

Tempered glass shelf shattered with nothin in the


This is caused by stress in the glass which was not properly relieved in the manufacturing process -- in other word, it's a defective piece of tempered glass. The expansion & contraction produced when you cleaned it (subjecting it to changing temperatures) caused the glass to explode.

Glass top


The cooktop will need to be removed from the counter. Turn it upside down and remove the screws. The biggest problem will be removing the cooktop from the counter. Sometimes it is not worth fixing as the part could cost around $400. NEVER use a cracked top as it could suddenly explode. This is tempered glass and very unstable if cracked or chipped.
