On older models, it is part of the transmission assembly, but on newer models, it is an electrical brake within the motor.

9 flashes - The brake resistor failed. This code will limit the motor to 50 rpms. Try clearing the code and if the code comes back replace the motor.

The washer is powering up but the motor is not spinning as strong as it should it is moving back and forth but very slowly, water is filling up and draining but the cloths is still wet and did not wash,...


Sounds like you may need a motor. If the electronic brake fails it will cause the washer to slow down. there is a led on the board in the motor. See if you can find it and count the number of flashes. 9 flashes is bad brake.

Ge frontload washer seems like it is not aggitating... what would be the problem???


Hello there:

The first thing to check when your GE washer is not agitating, is the belt. Let me tell you how to check the belt & the clutch with out having to take the washer apart.




The belt: Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the timer knob to turn the washer on.
If the washer drains the water and then spins the way that it should, this tells you that the motor, belt & clutch are not the reason why your washer won't agitate.
A broken belt could be the reason your washer is not agitating or spinning.



The agitator: After making sure that the belt, motor & clutch are working ok, lets check the agitator.
The agitator uses a plastic agitator coupler that is couple to the transmission shaft by using splines cut in the coupler and on the transmission shaft.
Too much usage or overloading the washer too many times will wear the agitator coupler splines. With out the splines the coupler could not be coupled to the transmission shaft and that could be the cause why your washer is not agitating.




The clutch: A bad clutch could also be the reason the washer won't agitate or spin. Usually when the clutch is bad the washer will be noisy, like when you have bad brakes on your car.


The transmission: The transmission could be the reason your washer is not agitating. A common problem with the transmission is oil leaking right on top of the motor pulley and the belt.
As you can see, there could be different reasons why your GE washer is not agitating. You just need to keep checking each part until you find the problem and replace the part responsible.

Machine wont spin out items are full of water


Take the belt off and run the washer to see if the motor will turn without a load.
Newer style GE - long history of transmission/brake issues with these. Best course of action is explained at this link:

GE washer WJSR4160G0WW agitation is way too fast & hard


check the 4 rubber cords at the top of the tub. If the washer has been moved they may need to be adjusted, you can see them by looking between the top of the tub and the top cover. You can turn them with your hand, and you may need to tighten them after.

GE washer wssr2070v1 will not spin.


If you hear the motor running but nothing is happening then check the belt on the bottom of the machine and the brake to make sure that the belt is not broken or stretched and also that the brake is not holding the drum
