Could indeed be the belt or at worst it could be thr main bearing getting dry and gradually seizing up. Hope it,s the belt!!

My washer fills with water and drains but does not agitate or spin. The belt is fine. This washer is one year old.


The top of the agitater should only turn counter clock wise by hand. If it free wheels the plastic dogs between the 2 halves of the agitator are broken. Cheap fix.

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.

Could either be the drivebelt slipping or, if an older machine could be the main bearing getting dry.

Squeeky agitation (loud)


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.

Squeaking Top Load GE Washer


I bought a new GE Washer GTWN5050MWS yesterday. From the first load it squeaked each time the tub moved back and forth (no agitator in the infusion type) It is a quick squeak and kind of resembles a cat getting it's tail under a moving rocking chair. I checked the entire owners manual and it describes several noises and not one of them describes what my new washer is doing. It does not make this sound except for when it is in the wash cycle. Spinning is quiet, and during the agitation of the rinse cycle it is a much more subdued squeak. But during the wash cycle it is not acceptable.

I called GE this morning and they told me it was normal operation for all infuser types of their washer to make this noise. Tomorrow I will be taking it back for a full refund.

We purchased this machine because our 2-year old front loading GE washer broke down (discharge pump I think) and to get it fixed usually takes a couple of weeks. We thought it might be better to have a 2nd washing machine instead of paying the laundry mat. It took a month to get the last one declared unfixable in 2008. Maybe I was wrong. But this is very bad luck to have a brand new washing machine squeak so loud out of the box.
