Question about General Electric WJRR4170GWW Top Load Washer
Hello all you experts!
I have the WJRR4170G Top Load washer. During the wash cycle, the drum reciprocates back and forth slowly for the entire length of the wash cycle. right at the end of the cycle, it will start to agitate quickly for maybe 10 seconds. Wash cycle done. The spin cycle seems to work fine. During the rinse cycle, same thing as the wash cycle. Final spin works just fine.
I have not really watched it when it was 'normal', so I can only assume that it is not reciprocating properly. (wife says it does wash right). I have tried this on a different timer cycle, with same results, and with increased load.
There is a faint noise during the wash cycle that I can hear near the motor. It could be a grinding noise or an electrical noise (shorting in the windings of the motor?). Hard to tell the source of the noise, moving parts and all. There is also some fine dust that is underneath the nut that connects the drive pulley to the Shaft and mode shifter assembly.
Seems like a lot of play in the drum. Don't know if that is normal for this model washer or not.
I would like to pinpoint the exact problem, so I can get the right part. If anybody needs more info, please let me know. I am at you guys mercy on this one.
Thanks in advance. Lot of good info on this site!!

Check your lid switch, and the strike, which is the other half of the switch, and is attached to the lid (the switch is on the machine).

I asked my wife about this question, before I became to technical and scared you more then you needed to be scared. My DARLING wife told me right away that you are overloading your machine. It occured to me she may have done this a few times herself. Mind you this is 50 years of experience . When you load your machine with to many items the water is displaced and has to go somewhere, it's caming up over the top and causeing your flooding problem. After you clean up and have a few highballs to settle your nerves, you should be OK. My wife and I wish you GOOD LUCK.
