Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer
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.
