Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My WBXR1060TAWW GE washer is eating thru belts....I replaced one about 2 weeks ago and the new one is fraying badly. It looks like it's rubbing metal when going through the spin cycle... It all started with a spin cycle that didn't want to pick up speed on its own. I could get it started by spinning the tub from the inside and it would start going on its own. Then the belt broke. I replaced it and the new belt did the same thing within a couple of weeks. What is going on?

I have a Maytag Neptune front load washer that the tub is rubbing and is loud.

Could be the bearings . But it could also be the springs that center and hold tub in place. They weaken over time and it is not uncommon for a tub to be scraping because one of the springs is shot. When you replace one, you replace all at same time and eat your wheaties because they are hard to replace.

Squeeking noise are the barron going bad

Squeaking noises are NOT necessarily an indication of bearing failure - but could be an indication of a slipping belt or something else rubbing. The machine itself may be rubbing against a washer, wall, door jamb, or anything really.

Look around the machine. See if it is in contact - or close to ant of these things. When it is running - it could be bumping against something. If nothing is found - have a look inside the the dryer. Inspect the belt and clean the drum where the belt tracks. Repl;ace the belt it is ready to break, missing parts or de-laminating. If you find shiny metal filings - that indicates metal is rubbing somewhere and is likely to be the cause of the squeak.

Good luck.

I am having the same problem.
Did you find a solution.
Our washer is just a little over 2 years old and I am trying to decide if I should just cut my losses and never buy a GE product ever again.

My hotpoint has quit spinning, how do I evaluate and repair

If it will not agitate or spin, you will need to replace the belt. If it will agitate but not spin, you have a bad transmission. This has been a nightmare to Hot Point (GE). I did warranty repairs for GE for 8 years. During that time, GE had me condemn on average 6 washers a week due to bad transmissions. Reason being, it was cheaper for them to send the customer a new washer than it was for them to ship me a new transmission and pay me to replace it.
Sorry but take my advise when I say, when you replace your washer, don't but a GE or Hot point. They still have not bothered to fix their transmissions.

My GE front loading washer Model WCVH6260 does not start the rinse cycle spin. It has a motor sound and some water seems to be draining but the rinse cycle does not spin and the motor continues to make a...

This has happened to us also. Our machine is 27 months old. I just had a non-GE repairman out and he showed me the mutilated belt. I was wrapped around the pulley. He said that the pulley had to be out of wack in order for this to happen because the belt looked in great condition (besides being in 3 pieces). Then the metal wheel (don't know the official name) is now warped and had gouged 3 grooves into the cheap plastic outer tub. So badly that it went thru to where the water is. So NOW, I have a big piece of scrap metal in my basement. I need a new outer tub, pulley, belt and at least 2 hours of labor. So a bill of 4-500$. I think GE can take this hunk of metal! But of course, GE has to send out their service man to inspect it. So I have to pay another service fee. They need to scrap this model and possibly others. What a waste of a whole lot of money. NEVER again.

New GE Profile Dryer makes intermittent loud squeeking or rubbing

Your drum may be out of round. The drum belt on the outside of the drum may be rubbing against the cabinet. When the cabinet heats up, the side walls of the cabinet may be bowing inward, thus making contact with the belt on the drum. This would explain why it is intermittant. When the heater turns off, the cabinet cools and the sides bow back out.

New belt

Basically, you need access and loop/connect around 2 pulleys using a long screw-driver to assist when looping your final pulley. The pulleys are metal; circular in shape; older models have 3 pulleys (water pump).

When looping your belt onto your final pulley, I typiclly use and wedge a long screw-driver in-between the pulley and belt, while simultaneously rotating the metal pulley to completely loop the belt on.

Your rollers probably need replacement. Get a bonified FSP idler instead of a crappy made in asia knock off. Check your drum slide. Rib side down with the belt to the drum.
