Question about GE WWSE5200B Top Load Washer

GE top loading washer Washer wwse5200- Agititation?

I noticed that the white load wasn't clean and after close attention I found out that the agitation spiral is not working (no agitation, the load sets there and nothin is happening). The spiral part inside the washer is rotating both ways freely and I believe it should not! May be a large load earlier broke the "hold" for this spiral and it is loose. It is not coming out, it is still in its original place and free to rotate as montioned both ways. Other than that nothing seems broken in the machine. It works excellent: soak, rinse, spins!
My question is what is broken; why isn't it working? How can I fix it?
How can remove this agitation plastic spiral to further locate if any thing is broken?
I appreciate your assistance.

It is a "trany" problem...just buy a new washer or it is a plastic cap inside that spiral part, that cap have groves...it is maybe goes bad....
GE as a brand has a lot of problem with washers, dryers, microwaves and fridges...and dishwashers so try to stay away of repairing or buying a new GE....

Our top load GE washer leaves a lot of suds when washing towels, even though I use a minimum of detergent. Also I notice that sometimes there is a tiny amount of water at the bottom when the load is...


If you recently washed a rug perhaps and it came apart a babys sock or something came apart then it sounds like the pump is part restricted and will have to be cleaned.

My ge washer shuts off at 19 minutes, but filter is clean


The rug backing may have gone into the pump (the white motor thing) you might take the motor out and flush it out if it is clear and it still won't pump out the pump needs replaced.

My GE Front load washer (WBVH6240) has an odor that smells like mildew in it. If the is left closed the odor is really bad. Do you know how to fix this or what is comes from?


run a empty cycle with bleach on whites/ sanitize. clean boot (rubber gasket at door) with bleach or other cleaner inside especially at bottom, make sure 3 holes at bottom are clear.
this may take multiple cycles to rid of odor.
For maintenance, you should wipe excess water from boot after last load, and check lower drain holes. Once a month wipe boot with windex or other. and run cleaner cycle (empty) newer machines have a special clean washer cycle. (6240 doesnt).
Also clean your drain pump filter at bottom front behind access panel.
If boot is really bad , replace.

GE top loading washer does not spin out water


The belt could be broken, if not. Unplug washer for 2 minutes, plug back in, open and close lid 7 times, this should reset electronic motor.

Front loading ge washer model wbvh5100hww


I had to have repairman out. He said it had a filter in front panel that needed to be cleaned. It was full of hard white stuff, like caliche dirt. He noticed I use Arm & Hammer Detergent and he said that was good, but don't use HE detergents because when they mix with city water, it causes an odor in washer. Thanks- Beth
