No oil movement in bubble on top of machine


ead the needle raise the presser ft and stomp the power foot down, now check the bubble when the machine is running full tilt. when the machine is running slow you will not see the oil flow. also ck the screen on the oil uptake under machine for dirt.

Oil leak found under washer. Cannot tell where this is coming from or what cycle. Washing machine still seems to be working okay.


the most likely cause if the oil looks like motor oil that you put in your car but only thicker,is that it is leaking from the transmission which is very common in ge washers the oil is in the transmission to lube the gears which make the machine agitate
to be sure you could remove the front panel and would see alot of oil in the base frame
to remove the panel place a screwdriver between the panel and top and feel around and find 2 clips (one on each side) press on those clips while pulling the panel out

It stops working after the wash will not drain, or spin just a beeps and blinks error brand new machine used 10 times only so far What do I do???


Remove the panel under the door by removing the three screws from under the bottom lip, Behind this panel you will see the drain filter (looks like gas cap on a car) Unscrew this cap and clear any debris from the filter. This should clear the problem.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

Hi , my washing machine recently started not spinnig as good as it use to. The clothes are still soaked. I heard it could be the coupler, but turned it upsidedown and looke at it myself and it looked fine....


Probably your transmission starting to go out.  Check to see is there is a ring of oil around your casing, or oil leaking out under the machine.  If there is replace the transmission.  Check to see how easy it is to rotate the basket.  Sometimes things get stuck between the tub and the basket.

Pavt454 will not stay balanced.in spin cycle.any kind of load


Your machine has a "snubber" on it. part number 21002026. it sounds like the snubber (clear/white plastic ring) is worn out. take the front panel off the machine and look at the base. you will prob see white powder down there. if not, then you will see oil. if you see oil, your transmission is leaking. if you see the white powder, then the snubber is worn out. the problem is that you need to remove the brake to get to the snubber. DO NOT TRY THIS YORSELF if you do not have the propper tools. THE BRAKE IS UNDER ALOT OF PRESSURE. you will get seriously hurt if you do not have the correct tools to do this job.

Oil spill under washing machine


Sorry, this could be bad. The transmission might have blown a seal. It's a big job to fix, if this is the problem. It might be time to consider replacing the machine.

WASH MACHINE IS LEAKING GEAR OIL ON FLOOR AND WON'T SPIN THE CLOTHES OUT


If there is oil leaking out, you may have a leaking gearbox.
There is nothing you can do about that but replace the gearbox.
Here is a website link for parts.
