I have a GE toploader washer. The model # is WBSR1060T (VVSRV1040V, & YVSR1040V were also on the washer too) the washer keeps filling to the max setting no mater what the water level is set on, also...

Remove the front panel of the washer by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips, located in the seam between the front panel and the washer's top, about 2 inches in from each side. With an empty wash tub, remove the small hose on the left side of the outer tub and clean out the inside of the hose. Replace the hose. Test.

Whirlpool washer (model LA9100XTW1)

Usually problems like this, you just have to take it apart and see. I can tell you a few things that will help though. It's not a deteriorating belt. In fact this machine doesn't have a belt at all, it's what is called "direct drive". The closest thing it has to a belt is a round piece of rubber in between a gear but that's near the motor and it's not possible for it to get inside the tub. In fact, it's hard for anything to get in there to stain clothes. Usually what causes this, is a build up of dirt, soap, mud, mold, etc that collects under the agitator and finally just gets enough to start releasing into the tub. It's pretty easy to take out the agitator and check under there, here's how.

To remove the agitator on a Whirlpool top-load washer, remove the solid cap or fabric softener dispense from the middle of the agitator. Then remove the white cap on the inside of the agitator. This might be stubborn, so just start off pulling gently and keep pulling until it comes out. Under that is a 7/16" bolt. Remove that and then the agitator will slide off the transmission shaft.

The only other option is removing the inner tub entirely, but that requires a special tool to get a nut off of the drive block, so that limits DIY repairs.

I own a kenmore elite heavy duty plus washer. During operation it stops and a message apears saying ob when you open the lid and close it ob disapears and I restart it and minutes later the timer never...

The OB error code is short for out of balance. There are two fixes that you can try: One is to move the clothing around in the tub. or Two the machine isn't level and is causing it to falsely error as out of balance.

Washer is leaving dirty spots on clothes

If you use fabric softener it may be from the softener. Dilute your softener 50% before pouring it in.

Need repair steps to replace the drum boot seal and how to remove the agitator on WWA8350BAL

This will take some time, so gather up your hand tools and get a cup of coffee...

OK, unplug the washer and turn off the water supply valves to the washer. Now open up the top washer door and pull off the top of the agitator (the fabric softener dispenser on some models). There could be a screw inside holding the agitator onto the transmission shaft, so remove that if present.

To get the agitator to come off the transmission shaft, you might have to rock the bottom edge back and forth, all the way around it, to help loosen it from the tranny shaft. Once you get that off, there might also be a spacer bushing underneath it (a plastic hub looking thing) remove that too.

Once you've go those items off, you can then use a small metal putty knive, about 1 - 1 1/2 inches wide to release the top panel from the cabinet. If you get down and look straight at the front edge of the washer, you'll see two (2) indents where the locking clips are located. Just push in with the putty knive about an inch and it will release. Do this in both places and the top will be able to be lifted up and back exposing the inside of the washer and tub.

Now you can remove the fasteners (screws or hex screws) that are under the hub spacer and that hold the tub onto the transmission. With these removed, you can now lift the wash tub out of the washer cabinet.

Once you've got the tub out, you'll see the wash tub boot. It's held in place with two (2) large diameter hose style clamps. Loosen and remove these with either a 1/2", 5/16" or 3/8" nut driver, (depends on where and when made as to the size that was used).

Once you have the clamps off the boot, you can carefully remove the boot from the outer tub and the transmission body. Once you have the boot off, clean the surfaces of the outer washer tub to remove any gunk that might make the new boot leak. Also, on the transmission side, use the putty knive to carefully scrape around the rim to remove any water deposits that have built up over the years, etc. Get it as clean and free of gunk as possible, again, so the new boot won't leak.

Carfully install the boot around the transmission first and tighten the clamp, now carefully put the boot around the outer tub lip and use your finger along the inside to help get it over the lip. Once it's on, make sure it's lined up and all the way over the outer tub lip and install the clamp. With the clamps, you want them tight, but not so tight that the clamp deforms or the boot gasket gets cut, so go easy and tighten them carefully.

You can now complete the re-installation of the remaining parts and you'll be back in working order in short order. If you wish, before you put all the other parts (tub, hub, agitator, etc.) back in. you can add some cold water to the outer tub to check for leaks, but you should be fine, if you cleaned the surfaces before putting on the new boot gasket.

Here's a link that shows your GE Washer and the parts described. It will help you better understand the repair and lists the parts, in case you need other components, etc. Just click on the "tub, basket, and agitator" link to see the affected parts.!retrieve.pd;jsessionid=qqur5KYuTMdHVEqkYLRyIQ**.shcapp3205?modelNumber=WWA8350BAL&pop=flush

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

How do I remove gravel underneath washer tub?

To access the washer:
  1. Use a putty knife about an inch wide.
  2. Push the putty knife on the sides to release the top panel and lid clips.
  3. Lift the top panel back towards the wall.
  4. Tape the lid so it does not fall back and chip.
  5. Remove the two 5/16 inch screws on the inside of the front panel. The top of the front panel will come towards you.
  6. Lift the front panel off the clips on the bottom and set aside.
  7. Pull the washer out from the wall and lift up the front to access the belt. Support it with a block of wood.

Spin cycle makes washer rattle too much

Open the door and then reach inside the washer and grab the front of the inner tub with your finger tips. Can you wiggle the inner tub inside the outer tub? If so, your spider shaft supporting the inner tub is cracked and needs replaced. It is quit a job for the average handyman. Most often the professionals mustr be brought in for this repair.

Let me know if I can help further,

Clothes smell on some cycles

You need to clean the tubs.

Unplug the machine.

Remove the agitator top. Remove the screw or plastic sleeve that holds the agitator down. A 1/2 inch socket extension will fit in the plastic sleeve. Pull the agitator out.

Now you will need to remove the nut that holds the inner tub. A spanner wrench is the best way, but you can use a large screwdriver to lossen the nut. Pull the inner tub. If it doesn't release take a hammer and a driving tool aka anything that will reach and not destroy the crown and tap all the way around the crown. If that doesn't release it, get someone to tap while you pull the tub. Be careful not to break the fill tube. I have broken quite a few being in a hurry. Haste makes waste.

Now with the tub pulled, clean the inside of the outer tub and the outside of the inner tub. Reassemble the machine.

FYI, liquid fabric softener and/or using too much detergent will cause the sewage smell. Liquid fabric softener is terrible for your machine. Use dryer sheets if you can adapt to them.
