How it works: Late model Ge top loading washer


The late model top loading GE washer is much different than it's original models that were so much more dependable than these newer ones are. To access the innards you must forst remove the front panel. Older models had the top pop up first but these newer models have the top bolted down. To get the top up you must first remove the front panel by using downward force on the top between the tiop and the front panel. It is not easy even for eperienced techs but cuss it a minute and it will come off. Once it is off you will notice the washer has an elecetric pump. Strings and junk get into this pump. It is easy to take apart and cleanup. The tub is suspended on 4 rods and the lateral movement is kept in check by 4 rubber cord mounted to the top called bungies. The motor and tranny can easily be accessed by removing the tub from the washer. After disconecting the power cable and pump the tub lifts out. Not all GE washers use the same motor or the same transmission method. Some do not even have a tranny. I have some GE washer service manuals.

I own a ge hydro washer. It won't spin or agitate


Hi,
If you hear the motor go through the stages, but nothing is happening in the tub, the motor belt may be broken or off.

GE WASHER WJSR4160GWW Won't Agitate


Sounds like tub belt failure. Check online for model layout. If unit is belt driven, remove back panel to access internal works. Look for broken belt. Depending on setup, control system stuck on water pump. Else possible control panel failure or motor (if water pump separate).

GE washer (wjsr4160gww) makes loud noise during spin cycle


Remove the front panel and you will see two metal guides attached to the front of the frame. One of them will probably be bent and the transmission assembly will have jumped over one or the other of the guides. You need to manually pull it back to center then straighten the bent guide. May have been caused by load being out of balance or machine not properly leveled. Good luck.

The front cover come off by removing two philips screws on the bottom of the panel. That will expose all the operating parts of the washer.

You should go in through the front. Use a flashlight and look between the front panel and the top panel. You should see some clips there. Stick a flathead screwdriver into the clips to pop the top up and then remove the front. The front may be held in by screws, but since I don't know which model you have, look inside once you pop the top and see if there are screws. Then you should be able to remove the front panel and see the belt.
