Question about Washing Machines

No agitation in ge hydrowave rinse cycles

Have had a ge hydrowave washer for six weeks. No agitation at all in first week. Repair tech "wiggled" a few wires. Said "it's working just fine". Does some agitation in wash cycles now. Does nothing but fill and drain during rinse cycles. Soap residue in tub six inches above level of clothes at end of the cotton(regular) cycle.

    Bought GE hydrowave in June 2008 and it stop spinning in Oct 2008, Called GE and they sent a tech out who reset it. It worked up until Dec 10 2008 and stopped spinning again. I called GE and they sent tech back out and reset again. Stopped working within the hours. This sucks because it takes the tech a week to come out. I will just be without clothes I quess.

    I had the tech out a second time for this same problem, it seems that there is a problem with the motors and they have been replaced and upgraded with new software. Having a new motor installed next week, hopefully GE has it right this time.

Top Loading Hydrowave. Washer fills but won't agitate. After a few minutes water is pumped out and it spins normally.


It almost sounds like the lid switch is working backwards but I have never seen that happen on a GE. The switch either works or goes bad. One other possibility is a defective water level switch. Thats also called a pressure switch sometimes.

My Ge Hydrowave doesn't know what cycle it's in. It agitates when in spin cycle and doesn't spin at all.


Hello,

That problem with your washer sounds like its the mode shifter solonoid,To check it use a multimeter set to ohms and measure for appx. 98 ohms on that solonoid coil.

What you can try first though is to reset the motor control baord and that remedies so many troubles with the Hydrowave washer. This tip i wrote will tell ya how to reset the motor board.

Washer won't cycle past fill, keeps returning to fill cycle


That could be excess detergent causing the control to do extra washes to get rid of detected Suds. On these washers it is critical to use HE detergent and the right amount. Most often directions on detergent boxes are useless. This washer has a 3 phase motor with an inverter to change the current from 120 to 200 volts dc. If you continue to use wrong amounts of detergent the inline fuse will eventually blow from the motor overheating trying to correct overdose of detergent. Read more about it in the GE HYDROWAVE SERVICE MANUAL

Trouble with kenmore washer


I had the same problem. I called the repair center to have the problem looked into and fixed since it was under warranty for just a few more months. This is where I wish you all the luck and patience in the world. After 4 visits to my home over a period of nine weeks, and several attempts to order many parts that never fixed the problem, the tech finally figured out that the problem was with the door latch attachment and just needed an adjustment! I hope that this saves you about eight weeks and six days!

Squeaking Top Load GE Washer


I bought a new GE Washer GTWN5050MWS yesterday. From the first load it squeaked each time the tub moved back and forth (no agitator in the infusion type) It is a quick squeak and kind of resembles a cat getting it's tail under a moving rocking chair. I checked the entire owners manual and it describes several noises and not one of them describes what my new washer is doing. It does not make this sound except for when it is in the wash cycle. Spinning is quiet, and during the agitation of the rinse cycle it is a much more subdued squeak. But during the wash cycle it is not acceptable.

I called GE this morning and they told me it was normal operation for all infuser types of their washer to make this noise. Tomorrow I will be taking it back for a full refund.

We purchased this machine because our 2-year old front loading GE washer broke down (discharge pump I think) and to get it fixed usually takes a couple of weeks. We thought it might be better to have a 2nd washing machine instead of paying the laundry mat. It took a month to get the last one declared unfixable in 2008. Maybe I was wrong. But this is very bad luck to have a brand new washing machine squeak so loud out of the box.

Agitator - is it working right?


there is slipping in the transmission. older machines used a pair of electrical solenoids to shift between spin and agitate. newer machines use the motor direction to engage the transmission for agitate and reverses for empty and spin. GE service phone: 1-800-848-7620
