How to lift the lid on our top loading GE washer

We have a very basic GE top loading washer that sounds like a jet plane when in the spin cycle. Today it was making a rubbing noise while agitating and my husband wanted to take a look inside to see if he could spot a problem. Is there a trick to lifting the top of this washer. He thinks it should just lift up but can't seem to do it on this machine?????

It does just lift up but it is held in place with clips that are forced into openings so you have to use some force to separate the two.

slide a putty knife in the crack and work it around. as you do so it will start to open for you.

If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

I have a GE Select Top loading wash machine that is making alot of noise during the spin cycle. 99/2000 model


If it sounds like a jet plane taking off, a grinding noise, it is the bearing. This is pretty difficult to replace. If you do attempt it, you MUST replace the inner tub seal. This is leaking onto the bearing, causing it to go bad.

HELLO, WSL100D0WW IS MAKING NOISE ON DRAIN/SPIN CYCLE.


Or, you have coins in your pump casing. Look on the back of the washer, and unscrew the circular port in the bottom right corner. (Keep an 8x13 baking pan underneath, water will escape once you open the chamber). Remove and change/objects from the chamber and replace the port. You should be good to go. This is actually very common for this model washer.

Washer will not spin


Could be a bad clutch or transmission. I would either call a tech or get a new washer (these newer GE models don't seem to be very reliable, go for a Whirlpool/Kenmore model next time). Here are breakdown diagrams for your washer: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=230151 Hope this helps, APP Tech
