Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer

1 Answer

GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer makes a lot of noise when spinning; sounds like knocking. When I look at where the belt is it looks like it is bent. I don't know if it is a bearing or the whole piece that I need to replace or if it is that at all. The washer is going on 5 years old.

Wiggle the drive pulley to check if you hear a knocking sound from the bearing signifying that it is worn. The bad news is, the bearing is molded into the rear outer tub. This requires the replacement of the rear outer tub with the bearing on it and costs about $400.

The spinner support assembly, also known as spider assembly, is broken if the knocking sound is coming from the inside of the outer tub. The thing is, you are likely to have a new washer instead of replacing the spinner support assembly since it normally comes with the stainless drum as an assembly and costs about $500 plus the labor cost.

In either case, the complete tear down of the washer is necessary to do the replacement. Call up service if you are not handy enough to perform this kind of repair. Please let us know if you have determined the real score and opt to repair the washer yourself.

Washer is not adequately spinning cloths--too wet unit tends to be easily overbalanced--we have repeatedly adjusted leveling feet


check the berring!!! spin the machine empty by hand, and you might hear a slight or heavy scrapping noise.

Makes horrible noise during spin cycle only


The bearings have most likely gone bad. This is a very common problem with the front load washer when powder soap is used.

My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer is making a knocking and squeaking noise during the whole spin cycle. It sounds like it's coming from the drum mounts - what should we do?


My Bosch Nexxt Essence front load washer will not drain. I changed the lint filter, and insured that the drainage hose was free of debris. I removed all the wet clothes, wrung out the excess water, and redistributed the clothes. Still, no draining or spinning. Initially there was a humming sound, but now there is no sound at all when I try to restart the drain or spin cycles. All the lights are appropriately "on".
