I have the GE HydroWave washer (model # WJSR4160GWW) and it is making VERY loud noises during the spin cycles. Our agitator appears to be loose as well. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: kenmore 90 series loud whirring/howling noise during spin cycle

Sounds like you have a broken motor coupler. They are inexpensive. Can be a little tough to replace but I can walk you through it. You can purchase a coupler here.

SOURCE: Makes horrible noise during spin cycle only

The bearings have most likely gone bad. This is a very common problem with the front load washer when powder soap is used.

Remove the front panel and you will see two metal guides attached to the front of the frame. One of them will probably be bent and the transmission assembly will have jumped over one or the other of the guides. You need to manually pull it back to center then straighten the bent guide. May have been caused by load being out of balance or machine not properly leveled. Good luck.

Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.

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.
