GE Spacemaker stackable washer/dryer

My washer has quit agitating or spinning. How do I get to the inside and check the belt? Is there a trick? Do I go in through the back or the front? Please help. I don't have the extra money to call a repairman nor do I have the money to buy a new one. Please help me. Tired of going to laundromat.

You should go in through the front. Use a flashlight and look between the front panel and the top panel. You should see some clips there. Stick a flathead screwdriver into the clips to pop the top up and then remove the front. The front may be held in by screws, but since I don't know which model you have, look inside once you pop the top and see if there are screws. Then you should be able to remove the front panel and see the belt.

The front cover come off by removing two philips screws on the bottom of the panel. That will expose all the operating parts of the washer.

WASHER WILL NOT AGITATE, MOTOR JUST HUMS GE SPACEMAKER LAUNDRY UNIT


Thanks for choosing FIxYa and welcome to the site. If you have a washer that has a weak agitation or no agitation at all, here are some possible solutions. You need to check your belts. Most washers have one or two belts. Check your lid switch. If a lid switch is bad, it can cause the washer to not work properly. Sometimes, they will not work at all. Make sure you check your drive motor. The drive motor controls the spinning, draining, and agitation. Most washers have the reverse motor, meaning the shaft rotates in both directions, clockwise and counterclockwise. It is possible to lose one direction and not the other. Some washers have a clutch that controls the agitation. If it is bad or worn, it may prevent the agitator to work. Most of these washers come from General Electric. You could have a bad motor coupler. They are located on the side of the motor drive inside the washer. It is also possible that you have a bad transmission. Check the agitator itself. You could have a bad spline or two. The splin accompanies the shaft and allows the movement of the agitator. If you rule out all the parts above, you may have an electrical issue or an issue with the control board. It is very important to test each part and make sure it is getting power. If a part is not working and not getting any power, the power loss may be the reason that it doesn't work. You can test the current in the wires with a voltage meter.

GE Washer wont drain. Wont agitate, does nothing. Washer is part of a stackable unit about 4-5 yrs old. Checked circuit breakers and electrical and water supply. What should I check? Are there fuses inside...


If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Here is a link to the part you need.
