I am not sure but it looks like the clutch is doing an sound when the machine is working. It occurs along all the way the washing cycle. The sound is like the one you ear when a motor car belt is worn and slides. Thank you

Squeaking washing Machine during spin cycle

Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.

My top load ge machine does not spin. it fills with water and makes a humming sound like it is trying to spin. how can i get it to work

Sounds to me like the belt has either came off or has broken. You can remove the front lower panel to see if the belt is still intact.To remove, put a hand on each side of the panel toward the top. Pull toward you, the top of the panel will un-clip and pull out. Then just pick up on the panel and set aside. Now look for the belt. Pull on it and make sure it's tight. If not you will need to reinstall it of if broken, replace. Good luck.

Our GE washing machine makes a horrible sound during the spin cycle. It is only a couple of years old. Everything seems to be working fine otherwise, just tremendously noisy during this cycle. This just...

you will need to take a look at the clutch which sits on the top of the motor. if it comes apart, and it can if the machine is overloaded, you will need to replace the clutch. once you remove the "clutch clip", it is horseshoe shaped, you will need to replace it. you cannot reuse it as it won't hold. hope this helps you.

Fixed the clutch. Now has a rock crushing sound when spin starts

Hello askeng,

I would try to fault isolate the noise area by removing the front cover (watch the belt) and start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. It’s a 10 minute cycle so let the wash basket spin up to full RPM. Do you hear the rock crushing sound? If it sounds like the problem area is the clutch pulley area terminate the cycle with the Off Key. Check for any trace of a water or transmission oil in that area.

If that’s not the cycle causing the excessive noise I would next do a quick wash with no clothes in the wash basket and see if the grinding/rock crushing sound is coming from the tumblers in wash cycle, maybe some change under the tumblers.

When you cleaned/re-lubed the one-way roller clutch bearings how did they look? Did the Spinner Shaft Coupler (I show it in this post) rotate freely CW in both the upper bearing (if used) and the lower bearing? Let me know your findings and if you have additional questions. Rich

A screeching sound during agitation cycle only.

sounds like a bad clutch. check the transmission out for ware and inspect the clutch as well. make sure the brake is not dragging as well.

Spin cycle not working properly

On the transmission there are two shift arms. One shift arm controls the agitator and the other shifts to spin the cloths. If the washer has been making a "clicking" sound when it trys to spin, the solenoid that shifts the spin shift arm is not catching and the drum will not spin. The other possibility is the spin clutch is slipping and make a "grinding/ratcheting" sound. Neither, unfortunately are inexpensive to fix.
If you can describe the sound and when it occurs, I might be able to get closer.
Let me know.

Washing machine works fine UNTIL spin cycle. Loud engaging sound and then it makes a squeek, squeek sound...not really a squeek, but if you were to listen to it, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee and loud.
