Question about GE Washing Machines
I have a less than 2 year old GE Washer (GTWN4950LOWS) HE top loader washer. Yes I did the go green thing, Bought both the HE gas dryer and the HE top loader washer. Well the dryer is a charm. THe washer on the other hand seems to have a major battle with clothes no matter which cycle or load size. things come out not so clean and totally twisted in knots. I've tried all different combination of load size and cycle. I've asked the store I bought the pair from If this is how these new HE machines work and was told: "YES it's a result of the low water aspects" I though maybe the water is just too low and I'll do a test. I added about 6 more gallons of water to a MAX load. WOw what a difference! clopthes come out much cleaner ( and lint free) although they still look like they had a Saturday night Brawl. DOes anyone know if the level of the water in this machine can be adjusted? It's a real chore to keep adding buckets of water in the wash cycle.... So much for automatic......

NO,your transmission is probably ok!! Inside your top end of agitator are these 4 plastic parts called "dogs" they need to be replaced.To be 100% sure ,do this first,Fill upthe machine on small load and while its washing look to see if the bottom end of agitator is moving back and forth ,if it is replace the dogs.In some machines you have to change the upper part of agitator.If the agitator is not turning at the bottom than,remove the top of agitator cover so you can get a extended half inch socket in to it and pull the agitator up and check the transmission splines.If they are smooth and cannot grab the agitator than your trans, is bad.

After pressing different buttons and waiting 10 to 15 seconds after turning the power off, I have finally found the solution.
When you have pressed the "Start/Cancel" button to start your wash programme the LCD shows "test".
You must then press the "Start/Cancel" button which will give you the normal temperature and washing time and then importantly you must depress both the "Start/Cancel" button with the "On/Off" button which will give you a different LCD message and then it will automatically resets itself.
ALL THE BEST!

Put another filter on before the washer. Try to find out if it is in the hot water or the cold. If it is the cold try a filter. If it is the hot, replace your hot water tank.
