Ge wasr311owoww profile washing machine wont spin or agitate

I opened up the washing machine front panel. the clip for the clutch was on the bottom, a small pile of metal shavings was under the clutch. so i know what the problem is. What i need to know is should i replace both the clutch and the motor? due to wear on the shaft? or can i just replace the clutch?

GE WDSR2080D5WW wont spin or agitate


The coupling might be bad. Take cabnet off by removing 2 screws from counsel, then flip up and pop 2 clips and the cabnet will pull away from machine. Then pop 2 clips off pump down in front of machine then take the 2 quarter inch screws out of the 2 clips holding motor then you'll see coupling. Any questions call Chris's r Repair at 716-258-1944

GE Profile , when door closes comes on , but does not appear that agitator is moving.


It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these: Lid switch Motor coupler Belts Clutch Drive motor Drive pulleys Transmission Agitator Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys

Belt of pulley part of pulley in pan of machine


it sounds like a belt and or clutch problem. there is a retaining clip that holds the clutch onto the motor, this may have come off releasing the clutch bell and belt. if you only see a half of a pulley in the bottom then you need a whole new clutch assembly with a new belt.

Washing machine wont spin anymore


whirlpool made? check the coupler between motor and transmission. Open cabinet by unhooking 2 clips inside control panel and remove entire cabinet.
If its ge or maytag then check belt. Some maytag designs have the belt on bottom (below the cabinet). Other wise use paintscrapper to release 2 clips between top and front panels. front panel comes forward and unhooks from bottom.

Spin and Agitate problem on GE Profile Prodigy WPSE4200A


This machine uses an electric water pump. I would check to motor. Remove the front panel and operate the machine to see if the motor is working. Check this by listening to the motor and watching the belt. If you hear the motor but the belt does'nt move then there may be a problem with the pulley or motor clutch assy.

As far as not draining or pumping water ? Check the wiring from the pump to the control panel. If these wires are alright then i suspect the pump.
