    GE Model # WLRE4500GOWW 
    I have removed the front of my washer and can see that the tub appears to have sunk and the metal pulley that the belt is on is grinding on the bottom of the machine.

    I do not understand how a bearing has caused the entire tub and attachments to sink low enough to grind on the bottom of the washer while agitating. Everything works perfectly...is there anot a way to adjust the tuba nd attachments back up an inch so it will not rub?

Replace water pump on frigidaire affinity


Plug off the wall. Open the door, keep your thumb at the opening and move the drum towards you and to the back of machine. If you hear some clicking or vibration, your bearings have shot. YouTube makes it easy to change.

Washer is loud, and won't spin or agitate


check the motor bushes,and also check for bearings in drum you can check this by lifting the inner drum up and down if you feel a knocking noise then this will be the bearings have worn.

My washing machine started to make a loud grinding noise and does not rotate to wash nor to spin. after moving the machine i found some plastic shavings under it.


Sounds like the bearings for the drum have or are on the way out. The belt has probably broke or come off.
Depending on the age, cost of new and personal feelings it can be repaired but normally it isn't cost effective, unless the machine cost £500+ ($800+)

GE Washer Tub has sunk and is grinding on bottom


I had the same problem and as near as I can tell, we ran a load the was simply too big and the upper chasis "droooped" just enough from the weight to cause the metal to bow. As a result, the bottom of the tub assembly was rubbing against the lower metal chasis, creating a loud grinding noise. Metal filings indicated the wear point. I took a piece of wood that is about 1"x3x height and wedged it in front and slightly to the left of the motor, running straight, up and down. the board stands straight to take out the bowing- lifting the tub about 1/4" more. This was just enough to provide the clearance needed to prevent grinding. If the vertival board is too long, you won't be able to get the front cover back on.
