Question about Washing Machines
I have a G.E. washing machine,mode # WPSR3120 woww. It goes through all the cycles fine but when it gets to the spin cycle if you have a medium to large load it won't spin.If you run it with no load or a small load it will spin.Is it the clutch and how can I check to make sure it is the clutch before I buy one.
Im not truly sure if there is anyway of testing the clutch per say. Did you remove the front cover and visually look at the system. You can load up the unit, and see when it goes into spin if the clutch is turning while the motor is going. Also, be sure you take in the fact that GE really (REALLLLLLLLY) likes these clutches, so much the dang near cost the price of a new motor kit (which also comes with a new clutch). Also be aware that sometimes these clutches can be a real bear to remove off the motor shaft, especially if you have had a leak or moisture getting down there. I really doubt that it would be a clutch though. If the unit agitates ok, then it would be doubtful that the clutch would work either way. I would probably say that there is a problem with the brake system possibly sticking or malfunctioning, which would entitle you to replace the entire transmission assembly (look on ebay, no Sears, wayyyyy to expensive to buy anything from Sears). This is a pretty good job to replace the transmission, and you almost have to have some special tools (spanner wrench to remove the tub). It can be done though. Let me know how it comes outs, and please write if you have further need or more information. Thanks so much.
