Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

The knob on my GE top loading washing machine does not work when I pull it out to start the washer. It works when I push it in to select my settings but it doesn't seem to click when I pull it to start machine and no water comes out. I don't know the model number because I'm a female senior citizen and can't pull it out to check it. I know it's a supersize model and I know that it is more than 10 years old. Can you help me?

Try different water temps. Maybe your cold water valve is bad. You cannot get it to spin? On any cycle?

What is the capicity of a GE WWA7600S washer


Here is the user's manual:

http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/pdf/49-9810.PDF

They never talk about weight or capacity other than

Setting the Controls

Use the Suggested Fabric and Cycle Settings guide ~ Select Rinse Temperature.

to help you make the proper selections.

~ Select Wash Spin Speed.

~ Push Cycle Selector knob in and turn clockwise to

your selected wash setting. If you wish to change setting

~ Select Water Level. ~ Pull Cycle Selector knob + START out to start the washer.

SMALL: Washer is less than 1/3 full of clothes.

MEDIUM: Between 1/3 and 1/2 full.

LARGE: Between 1/2 and 2/3 full.


This washer will pretty much take anything you can throw at it. It was a competetor of the Maytag large capacity washers. As long as you follow the loading guide above you are not going to hurt it.


Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have an older ge prfile washer & the cycle knob does not work. how do you take it off. i have pulled it & tried to unscrew it but neither works


pull knob out and look behind it. You should see a white plastic clip. You have to pull this out and then knob comes off. When replacing knob, put clip on knob first and then just push knob on to shaft.

The dial doesn't turn with the knob pushed in, when we go to set the wash. but it does move manually with finger tips


The teeth on the knob are probably gone. To pull the knob off remove the clip between the knob and the dial and pull knob off.

Cycle control GE WHDSR315 top loading washer.


Try pulling the knobs off completely and squirting WD-40 into the switch interior--work the oil in by reinstalling the knobs and moving them around. If no help, then the area behind the control panel must be accessed (pull the power plug), and the control replaced (you should have seen the mounting screws when the knobs were off).

The timer knob spins freely and I can't start the machine or set the timer.


"Can I replace it with a new knob or do I have to buy a new timer?"

It sounds like the knob is rounded out where it fits on the timer post, or It may just be loose. Pull the knob off and inspect it. If damaged, yes, you can buy another one.
