Ge washer g 157

I have an older rca g-157 washer--from time to time the hot water cuts out almost completely, accompanied by a whining sound as the water is restricted----the cold is fine--the hot will cut out either on the hot or the warm setting---sometimes if I wait with the machine off, the hot will return when I try again---the control part is an Eaton N-51---I think that is the source of the problem---is it likely that I am right, and if this exact part is no longer available, are there interchangeable substitutes? thank you very much

SOURCE: Washer fills only with hot water

Disconnect cold water hose from machine. Inspect the filter screen on the cold water connection. DO NOT REMOVE SCREEN. If full of debris, use a spray bottle with a hard spray to remove debris. If unable to remove or cold is still slow, replace valve.

SOURCE: GE Washer wbsr3140d5ww water problem

Hello Chad
Welcome

Sounds like the cold water knob or switch is not switching and may be faulty.

I have a problem with my washer
For some reason when I try to start the washer and I have it set to cold it does not work if I put it to hot then its fine
The cold water does work though because if I change the washer to a later cycle cold water comes out just fine.
So it almost seems like its the timer knob
any ideas?
Thanks

SOURCE: water temperature is inconsistent

hey there sounds like your hot falve is faulty, if it is faulty they tend to either switch off and not open to let water in, or not open at all, get a service tech to look at you hot valve.

Dark particles all over clothes once washed. I cleaned the washer, ran a tide washer cleaner through, checked and cleaned the screen filters that hot and cold hoses pump water through. Is there anything...


sounds like you may need to check your hot water heater for deterioration. since you have done all that you need to check your water supply. a water heater can deteriorate on the inside for a time before you will notice it. good luck

Hot water lasts half the time


How old is the heater?

It may be something as simple as just needing to flush the tank to remove any sedemints....and hopefully so because this is the easiest/cheapest thing to do.

If this is not the case go ahead and remove the heating elements and check for wear. Replace them if necessary. I would also replace the thermostats that accompany each of the elements.


Checking and replacing both of this requires you to drain the tank completely and should be close to $25 total....last time I checked.

Ge washers top load (coffeeboot)


Hi Steven. I'm sure other service providers have come up with their own methods of dealing with the same problem, many of which may work as well as mine, but I think that cutting off the last inch and a half of the hose at the tub side is the fastest "fix", followed by regular use of liquid bleach (a concentrated sulution every couple of months) to prevent the condition from re-occuring.

Water drip into washer, used to gush in. Now water pipes bang, whine


The problem is the 10 cent rubber washer in a shut off valve in your plumbing. The brass screw that holds this washer has corroded and the washer has come loose. It now floats around inside the valve and the water flow can be blocked at one time, whistle, howel and make bangs at another. It could be any valve including the main shut off. You can listen to the pipes but the sound travels, so you are looking for the loudest spot. A new washer and screw could fix it, but sometimes the screw is broken off requiring a new valve stem. Be prepared to replace the whole valve.

sounds like the Power Transformer to me,  usually accompanied by a high pitch (almost inaudiable whine) and  sparks arcing.

 

This needs a professional repair..
