The transmission has gone bad. I hope this machine is still under warranty. I own my own applaince service company where we do warranty work for GE. This problem is well know by GE. When we receive a warranty service call for one of the GE top loaders and we diagnose the unit with this problem. GE will only pay us the trip charge and diagnosis fee. They replace the machine rather than repair them. The GE dealer that delivers the new unit is not allowed to leave the used unit but to take it with them and later destroy it so that no parts are useable. GE has had a real bad problem with their transmissions in their top loaders for about 10 years or so. You will find that it is cheaper to buy a new machine rather than replace the transmission even if you were to do it yourself. If the unit is not been out of warranty for very long, I suggest you call GE, give them your model# and serial #. tell them it has a bad transmission. Let them know that you understand that they are totally aware of the problem with their transmissions in top loaders. That you expect them to either grant you large a discount on a new machine or to cover a high % of the cost of repairs to the one you have. I understand that they have done both for customer in an attempt to avoid class action judgments. It' s worth a try. Sorry for the bad news but I see this all the time.
P.S. GE is still building bad equipment. They are surviving on their name because thay have totally destroyed their reputation throughout the industry.
Please rate solution.

Why washing machine squeaks when in wash cycle


Hello friend, thank you for your inquiry!

Based off the information you have provided you are hearing a squeaking noise during the wash rinse cycle on your Frigidaire washer. You could be hearing the noise from your motor during that operation, this is normal. Additionally, if you feel that this is noise an issue I would contact a professional to come out and diagnose your appliance properly. -Matt

Washing machine knocks and dims lights only during rinse cycle


Possible that the bearings are a suspect, if the machine seems to wobble around. Also if the load is high, does the noise go higher, if so check the suspension, check the mounting and the counter weights.

Why does washer make grinding metal sounds during wash cycle only?


When it is washing, look to see if the basket is moving at all. The basket should be stationary during the agitation cycle.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???

Loud clicking/thumping in rinse and spin cycle


It doesn't look like a motor problem !!! It seems like an unbalanced tub issue. The machin has suspension dampers and suspension rods, and it's look like one of them was damaged or "run away" from its location during machin's movement. Goog luck !!
