It has a bolt in it and you would have to brake the agitator to get to a bolt we know because we had to brake our old agitator off our old one to get to the bolt.

The agitator simply pulls off. Sometimes they get stuck. Is that what happened?

Fisher & Paykel GW712 washing machine Hi Fixya ,


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Level
If it is shaking and not sitting flat ( should have no rock corner to corner) check the leveling legs. Make sure to tighten up the locknut after adjusting.

Timer
Sometimes a Timer will start making noises before they fail. I would highly suggest replacing the timer as soon as the noise develops. This can cause problems with your motor and other components if left alone. This is easy to identify just listen up near the console when running.

Transmission
The transmission does not usually fail but to check this on a direct drive remove the motor and rotate the inner tub and listen for noises it should be quiet. If not the transmission is expensive and you will need to evaluate wether it is worth repairing.

Motor Coupler
On direct drive machines this is a common failure and can be very noisy.

Motor
You will need to disassemble the motor to listen to the motor running. If the motor is noisy it will need replacing. On direct drive models check the motor coupler first.

Suspension Rods
The Suspension Rods support the tub under the cabinet on some models. The washer must be disassembled to access. These usually do not fail. On direct drive types there will be springs instead of suspension rods. Either usually fails but can from being overloaded.

Drain Pump
The drain pump can be the cause of noise. On belt drive types remove the belt and rotate the pump pulley it should spin freely and make no noise. If it is noisy replace. If it does not spin freely remove and inspect for obstructions if none found replace the pump. Check the impeller on the pump it should be tight and spin freely. On direct drive types remove the pump and inspect it

Tip

How it works: Late model Ge top loading washer


The late model top loading GE washer is much different than it's original models that were so much more dependable than these newer ones are. To access the innards you must forst remove the front panel. Older models had the top pop up first but these newer models have the top bolted down. To get the top up you must first remove the front panel by using downward force on the top between the tiop and the front panel. It is not easy even for eperienced techs but cuss it a minute and it will come off. Once it is off you will notice the washer has an elecetric pump. Strings and junk get into this pump. It is easy to take apart and cleanup. The tub is suspended on 4 rods and the lateral movement is kept in check by 4 rubber cord mounted to the top called bungies. The motor and tranny can easily be accessed by removing the tub from the washer. After disconecting the power cable and pump the tub lifts out. Not all GE washers use the same motor or the same transmission method. Some do not even have a tranny. I have some GE washer service manuals.

My washer agitator spins but the tub doesn't,also see metal insid


Repair or replace is always a judgement call. Most people will be better off replacing the machine. This is a rather big job, labor wise. On a difficulty scale of 1 -10, I'd give it an 8. The metal is the inner area between the inner drum and the transmission shaft, which has corroded and started to break apart. (located under the agitator) To repair, the agitator is removed, the washer front and top are removed to allow the washer's outer tub cover to be removed. This allows the inner tub to be removed. (caution: the big nut under the agitator drive spline is a left hand thread) Then, the drain hose, water level hose, suspension rods, and electrical to the motor are all removed to allow the entire drum to be removed from the washer to allow the inner tub to be removed. The actual metal part which needs to be replaced is then easy to replace by removing a few torx head screws from the underside of the inner tub.

Washer has a very musty smell. Trying to raise the top to clean inner tank but it will not budge. Does the top raise on the WJSR2070B model. Do not want to break it


Yes, but I would advise to try a washer cleaner before going through all the work to dissassemble your machine.
Use the longest, hottest cycle. You may have to run the cycle with a cleaner twice to remove all the built up soap scum inside the washer.

You could check out http://www.smellywasher.com/ for one possiblity. Others are " Washer Magic " or these: 73b1c2a.jpg fb3071a.jpg
If you still want to tackel the dissassembly: The washer front comes off by using a putty knife to push in the two retaining clips on the very top edge, where it meets the washer top. Now you will be able to access the screws which hold the top down. Of course to remove the inner tub, you still have to remove the lid switch, the agitator, agitator drive, the left hand threaded nut below that, the wire connection to the motor, the four tub retaining straps, the tub to pump hose, the four suspension rods, the tub cover and the water level hose. Then you would be able to remove the inner tub and pressure wash out the outside of the inner tub and the inside of the outer tub, if you bring the tub assemble outside. TRY THE CLEANER FIRST !!!!
