Question about Washing Machines
I have a GE Super Plus 3.2 Cu. Ft. Capacity Washer (Model # WBSE3120BWW) It will fill & drain, but will not spin or agitate. It makes aloud grinding noise when it should be spinning/agitating. We ran 3 loads just fine. The last load seems like it ran fine part way through the cycle. We heard a loud grinding noise coming from the washer and when we went to check it out, we saw that it had drained, was draining, and was making a loud noise. It was not agitating or spinning. We think it was on the spin cycle as the clothes were wrung out. We turned it off, unplugged it, and restarted it on a rinse cycle. It filled up, but then made the noise again and did not spin. What is wrong? Is it the pump? Clutch? Belt? We are hoping this is an easy fix.
Two great sites that have great troubleshooting info, but also 'how to' videos to do the repairs.

It sounds like the agitator gripping teeth are worn out. To check this, take the agitator cap off with a strong knife or flat-head screw driver, pull the cap off and check the plastice teeth and four plastic hooks that grab the teeth. If they are worn out, then you will have to replace the agitator. To replace it, you will see a nut that is between the circlular teeth. Unscrew the nut and pull the agitator up hard.
