Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

GE top loading washer turns off by itself

GE washer will turn off in middle of cycle. It does it randomly at all times during a cycle. It seems that any type of movement will turn off washer. For example if the water pipes bang it turns off. If the load of laundry is uneven it turns off. If you bang down the lid it will turn off. I think it may be an electrical problem with the start button, but I don't want to put money for parts into it if I don't have to. It is a 5 year old machine and is used for at least 2-3 loads of laundry a day.
Thank in advance for any help!!

    Did you ever find a solution to your washer problem? I have a 7 year-old top load GE WSERE526 doing the same thing. It does seem like it's an electrical problem since all lights on the control panel go off when the washer randomly shuts off.

How about a lid switch. Try pushing down on lid to restart.

Kenore Elite Oasis top loading washer wont spin during the spin cycle, but will rotate during wash and rinse cycles


Hello,

Since the motor turns regadless of the direction it turns itself is good and theirfore the problem with your washer i believe is going to be the control board,it is what tells the motor what direction and what speed to turn.

GE Profile WPRE6100G Top Load Washer My washer is 2 yrs old and has started to make a loud metalic banging noise during the wash cycle. It does not during the spin cycle. Doesn't seem to matter whether...


Hi!!
The "Metallic banging/clicking" sound you hear is the Shifter mechanism engaging or disengaging.
The drive system will engage at the start of the Agitate Cycle and disengage when the Agitate Cycle is complete. This occurs multiple times during the wash. GE claims this is a normal sound and should not be concerned about it. Check page 10 of your Operating Manual, if you do not have a manual, click on this link to download one http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-90323.PDF

Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

GE washer WJSR4160G0WW agitation is way too fast & hard


check the 4 rubber cords at the top of the tub. If the washer has been moved they may need to be adjusted, you can see them by looking between the top of the tub and the top cover. You can turn them with your hand, and you may need to tighten them after.
