GE Washer Tub has sunk and is grinding on bottom

posted by golinveaux on May 20, 2009
Looking for info on GE WLRE4500GOWW mode Washing machine. Making very loud grinding noise when drum is moving back and forth. Maybe bad bearing?HELP!!!! Everything works perfectly except that the entire tub and attachments has sunk down enough to grind or rub on the bottom of the washer while agitating. How could a bearing cause this? Is there any way to raise the tub back up about an inch by making an adjustment?

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.

Sounds like transmission/tub "nut" came loose or if it has the cable/pully balance system (older design) the cable broke.

WATER COMING OUT FLOOD TUBE ON GE TOP LOAD WASHER MODEL WLRE4500GOWW WHATS WRONG DOES IT ON AGITATE AT HIGHEST WATER LEVEL


Take off the front panel by inserting a putty knife in the clips between the top cover and the front panel. Once the front panel is off you will see a clear box on the side of the tub with a clear tube running from it. Take off the tube and make sure the tube and where it attaches are not clogged with junk. Use a bobby pin or paper clip to clear it out. This is what makes sure the tub fills to the proper level. It is probably over-filling because that tube is clogged. Once the water level is lower, the water won't come down the flood tube.
