Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a GE model WHDRE526E1WW washmachine.The complaint was it would not spin. I checked the agitator coupler and the washmachine agitates but won't spin or fill with water. I suspect it may be the control.

Try suspecting the tub end of the water level tube being plugged with " goop " so that the washer thinks it is still full of water, thus will not fill or spin. Take the front panel off by releasing the push in clips at the top of the front panel, in the seam where it meets the washer's top. Now, find the tube at the left side of the outer tub and pull it off the tub. Clean it out or cut off an inch (don't do the cutting thing more than one time) and replace after using a thin wire to clean out the tub end of the attachment. To help prevent this from re-occuering, every few months, fill the washer to the lowest setting with the hottest water, no clothes, and several cups of bleach, and run the longest cycle you have (with no clothes, of course). Make sure to rinse out the tub on a higher water level before you wash a load of clothes.

The agitation does not work like it should!


I suspect u have bad agitator dogs

check THE CAM DOGS INSIDE THE AGITATOR, AS THEY WILL HINDER THE AGITATION PROCESS. However in G.E models the cam dogs are replaced with what is called an agitator coupler. (located at bottom of tub)
Remember to check the agitator spline as well. for worn broken teeth




By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

My GE WHDRR418GWW was spinning and started making a loud unbalanced sound, stopped and now I cannot restart it.


Here is a common one. The coupler has worn and the agitator may also need to be replaced. Grab a belt and slide it under the agitator. Then pull the agitator out making sure it does not pop up and hit you in the face. Once the agitator is out check the coupler 310 and the base of the agitator. It's very likely they are worn and need replacing.


Some models don't have agitator, then, the problem in this case is going to be the tub bearing. Click HERE to order the part, this will not be an easy repair since you will need to take the top off and remove the inner and outer drum.

Hope helps.

GE washer model WWA8955 agitator won't spin. I can see the screw at the top of the agitator turning back and forth and hear the it running but that's the only thing moving. The spin cycle works. ...


Hello,
The agitator connects the part (transmission) that makes it agaitate by a piece in the bottom of the agitator and that connecting part has teeth on it that interlock on the transmisson shaft. That connecter is stripped so when trans. agiates that peice is slipping. That coupler needs to be replaced. This video here will show you how to replace that part. The part number for that peice is WH49X10042 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at,

My washing machine will drain an spin but will not agitate


There is a good possiblity that the agitator coupler is bad. reach into the machine and try to spin the agitator. If the whole thing spins then you have a bad coupler. Some agitators are a two piece design and the top half is supposed to turn freely one direction and catch the other. if you have that type and the top spins both ways but the bottom stays still you have a bad agitator. To remove agitator, grab the bottom and pull up hard. Its only held on by plastic fingers

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.

GE Washer WJSR2080V3WW will fill, spin and drain but not agitate.


The problem is the agitator coupler (about $ 7.00) simply pull straight up on the agitator - Give it a good tug. take the one bolt holding the coupler off - pull straight off. Replace the coupler and bolt (they are sold together). Line the agitator lines up with the coupler lines - when they line up it should go all the way down and snap back into place. and your done.

Wouldn't agitate and how do i get it apart


If the agitator does not work, then depending on make, it could be your clutch or transmission or belt tension. Agitators are pushed on type(To remove pull up), but removing it will not solve problem, if agitator is not worn out.

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

Loud spin cycle


There is a good chance that the hub nut came loose and now the split ring is destroyed, maybe along with the hub that it sits on..

To inspect these parts, the agitator must be pulled sharply and abruptly off the agitator coupler. There are no mechanical fasteners that attach the agitator to the coupler, it snaps on. A strong strap under the agitator and a quick, swift pull will remove the agitator.( Don't hit your face, it hurts)

Removing the coupler, then the basket should reveal the source of the noise.
