Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
well it sounds like this washer has suffered from extreme vibration. that can be caused by several things. 1) non "HE" detergent being used. 2) shipping bolts not removed soon enough after unit was used. 3) continual and consistent overloading. 4) a very unstable floor, inefficient pedestal. 5) shock absorbers broke and gone unattended too long after separating from tube and or base/chassis.
bottom line is there are many possible causes of the counterweight breaking apart, (even loose counterweight hold down fasteners) these are just a few.
now the good news...
as long as no further damage has occurred, these units are a dime a dozen at used appliance depots and you should be able to locate a relatively inexpensive replacement part.
hope that helps, I know it sucks...no matter if it's 3yrs. or 13yrs old !
