My ge washer shakes alot

The washer has 4 rods that support the tub for suspension and four rubber straps to keep lateral movement to a minimum. With time the straps which are called bungys get stretched and worn out. Some times water sloshes over the top of the tub . SERVICE MANUAL

I have a year 2 year old GE WPRE6150H1WT. We have paid a repare man twice to fix the place where the water enters the washer. It has a fine spray and clogs. Then the water runs full force on the outside...

if you mean you want to change the part that the water goes through to fill the tub it's called a funnel shower head for g.e. part number WH41X10162 and it's around 5 dollars.but are you positive that the tub isn't tilting one way or the other more than it should and the water is running down the back of the washer? there's 4 suspension rods that hold the tub in place and balanced,they push into a plastic cap and sometimes pop out and the tub tilts off balance and there's 4 damper straps,they are rubber pieces that connect to the top,if you lift the top panel up you'll see them if one of them break it throws the tub off balance and the water can run down the back,but if you're looking for the part that the water fills through it's called a funnel shower head good luck

At first it did not spin well, the clothes were soaking wet but there was no water in the tub. I would have to run it thru two spin cycles. Now when it gets to the spin cycle it will not spin.

It sounds like the belt is slipping & the damping straps are not securing the movement. The top tub cover should have 4 short rubber straps securing the basket to the cabinet. This prevents the tub from hitting the cabinet while the washer is spinning. I would recommend having the damper straps & the belt checked. Other possibilities would be the transmission or the brakes hanging up.

Washer tub/basket is visibly uneven or unbalanced

Check the rubber damper straps ('cables") by hand to make sure they aren't cracked or broken (a light tug on each should suffice). Sometimes it isn't obvious visually, especially if you don't have good lighting. If one strap is bad, replace the entire set. Also inspect the attachment points for the straps to make sure they aren't loose or bent.

If you are sure the damper straps are good, then check the suspension under the tub for excess wear or breakage.

My 20-year old maytag washer has begun to vibrate and jump around as it spins. I shift the load and it does no good.

Sounds like you have a loose/broken tub mount. Pull out the washing machine and see if you can see the mount. You may be able to repair it, Best of luck

Noisy clothes washer

I am thinking there may be an object caught between the inner and outer tubs...perhaps something came out of a pants pocket and was "flung" overboard into the outer tub. If you remove the top, and push the inner tub (moving tub) to one side, look with a flashlight for a foreign object. the noise will be fine until high speed kicks in and begins to disturb the sleeping object into a frenzy.
