There are 4 rods that the tub hangs from. the plastic pieces at the top of the rods are supposed to wear in, but many of them continue to squeak. had the same problem with mine for the last 4 years. in year 1, the GE repair guy said this is common and showed where to lubricate. open the front panel (stick a screwdriver or stiff butter knife to depress the 2 clips.) you'll see the rods. (altho the back ones are kind of hidden). a quick spray of silicon will quiet the squeak. usually lasts about a year.

Sooner or later someone that cured this problem may provide his solution. Meanwhile, if you can't wait, you or a technician will have to pull the machine out far enought from the wall to remove the rear panel to get eyes and ears inside and closer to the squeek. That is the way it is done normally for a first time problem. You may get lucky and see the problem or be able to tell this group more exactly where the squeek is is being generated.

Replaced the clutch and motor coupler a month ago. Ran great. Washed tennis shoes. Came in to remove clothes, didn't spin. Wont agitate or spin, i could hear the motor running. Just replaced the motor...


Check for a failed capacitor under the control panel It is a start/run capacitor that the motor needs to start running. The motor will hum and if left will eventually burn out.

GE Washer Model WJRR4170E4WW squeaks while agitating


There are four suspension rods that the tub hangs on. When the washer is agitating the tub will rock back and forth and the rods will move back and froth as well. To fix this noise, lift up in each rod and put some lubricant in the cup that the rods fit into at the top of the washer.

Note that it is best if you use a lithium-based lubricant rather than silicone based lubricant.

Top load won't agitate or spin


If it is a direct drive (no belt) Your motor coupler is broken. The washer would make a grinding noise but do nothing. Basically it is like a belt it connects motor to tranny. It is a fairly inexpensive part $20-25 retail.

Terrible noise when agitating


Your transmission has gone out. The reason the spin cycle works is because the transmission spins two different ways and you agitate way stripped the gear. Some places rebuild them. Try with your local stores maybe they can rebuild it or get you a good used one. If not you can order a new one from sears.com
