Due to the economy and the inflated repair and labor charges that may occur, i recommend purchasing a new washer. the new purchase will be cheaper than this repair.

Ge wslp1100a0ww washer leaves clothes soaking wet, not spinning properly


You don't say whether agitation is normal. Improper spin can be slipping V belt (stretched or cracked), part #WH01X10081, or loss of transmission fluid. Is there oil on the ground under the washer (shouldn't be)? Let's start here. Motor, belt, and transmission are at the bottom of the washer.

You can hear water behind the drum when you spin


I don't believe you have a problem with your washer. It is NORMAL to have residual water in the drain lines and drain pump following a wash cycle. You will be able to hear the water sloshing around if you move the drum or drain lines. This is the lowest point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket inside the drum, and the washer is properly draining during the wash and rinse cycles, you have nothing to worry about.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Kenmore front load washer #44072 drum banging noise


I have the same problem...the solution is called new washer. I was told it could be overhauled to the tune about $600...barrings are going out. Mine is just 7 years old and that's disappointing.

Washer won't drain nor spin


Cheaper now, or in the long run?
Many new washers are High efficiency ones. They use less water, less detergent, and less power (washing AND drying). Your situation sounds like a problem with the evacuation pump and/or timer.
Do some research... may even pay to ask a cheap premium question here to get your solution, and see if it is cost effective.

Washer spin problem


Ok so your having problems with the washer spin problem. Well there mightbe a sound that it is making like a jumpoing sound. Well when you here that open it and you might notice that all the clothes are on one side. That means that you put too much clothes in the washer, and it can't handle it. So open it and take out some clothes and restart it. I hope i helped you problem's. Thank you for taking your time to read my article.

Kenmore spin cycle thumping noises


I just went through the same issue with my Kenmore front loading washing machine. I assumed (and a Sears repairman also told me) that it is the bearings. After I took the drum assembly out, I saw the rear drum broken and the inner tub hitting the outer tub. I ordered the outer drum assembly and only when I took the inner drum assembly out I realized the the "Spider" attached to the inner drum (and spindle) was broken. Entire drum assembly cost $417 + shipping and it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a new washer. I like the front loaders because they save water and good for the environment, but the US manufacturers have not yet perfected the technology like European manufacturers (or they don't want the machines to last too long just like cars). Anyway, I am looking into welding the spider tomorrow. If not will return the outer tub assembly and buy a top loading washer for $300!

Washer spin when in wash cycle


the problem is specifically the motor tacho which consists of a rotating magnet screwed to the motor shaft and a fixed coil around the magnet. the problem can be the magnet unscrewed or the coil fallen out.either way, they can usually be repaired by glue or packing.
