Question about General Electric WJRR4170GWW Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Washer tub/basket is visibly uneven or unbalanced

When the lid is open the front corner, by the bleach add in spout, of the tub is rubbing when in operation. The wash will make a very loud hitting noise and begins to shake very hard. I noticed connecting cables in all four corners and they all appear to be connected. The washer is 5 years old. How do I check the balanceing mechanisim or what else could it be. Is there anything I can do to fix this myself?

Check the rubber damper straps ('cables") by hand to make sure they aren't cracked or broken (a light tug on each should suffice). Sometimes it isn't obvious visually, especially if you don't have good lighting. If one strap is bad, replace the entire set. Also inspect the attachment points for the straps to make sure they aren't loose or bent.

If you are sure the damper straps are good, then check the suspension under the tub for excess wear or breakage.

SOURCE: Washer does not spin or agitate at all. Timer works.

Check your belt. It may have become loose.
On the top right and left of the front panel insert a putty knife about 3 inches in where the top meets the front panel.
This will release the front panel so that you can see the motor and belt operation.

Better still, a 5 month old machine call for factory authorized service.

You may need to put a level on top of the washer and then there are little feet like under the washer you will need to turn those either way untill all 4 are right, meaning once the level says it is level then you are ok and avoid overloading.

SOURCE: My GE washer basket makes a rattle sound when

The best option is to look at the source of noise than to specilate on a whole list of possibilities.
Please use a good lighting to look from the underside of the washer . Now rotate the main shaft, rotate the drum and check.
The fault can be poor spindle assembly, check bearings, belts.
Also it can be that some foregn objects have lodged into the tub from any clothes during the wash. so check this out, if so remove after dismandling.
Please proceed to check and respond.

How do I take the bleach dispenser out of my top load washing machine.LG WT5001CW


Hello. The bleach dispenser cover(the part you see) un-snaps and lifts out revealing the dispenser assembly beneath. The part number for the cover is MBL62061401 and the dispenser assembly is ACZ72910401. Why are you taking it out? If there is some leakage down the front of the machine, make sure the washer is VERY level as the basket/tub ring will lean towards the side that is lower. Check the suspension rods for wear by placing your hands on the right and left side of the tub ring(the white circular cover over the spin basket)and shove smartly downward and let go. The suspension rods should grab going down and pull coming up--no "hobby horse" wiggling/bouncy movement at all. They act just like shocks on a car--if you push down, the car will come up and immediately settle. The suspension rod part number is 4902FA1665W and you will need to change all four if any corner is worn. **To access the rods and dispenser assembly, you must use a 2 inch putty knife, insert is approx 3-4 inches(use a flashlight to help you see) from the right and left side *front*. There are 2 steel clips that hold the top cover tightly to the washer frame. You have to push them in while pulling the top cover towards you and up. Place your hand inside the lid and grab the top cover tightly at the front right and left sides--the clips can be really tight and difficult to get released so be patient. The top cover will hinge up from the back. Be careful--some models have screws at the *back* corners of the top cover that have to be removed. I hope I helped you!

What is hd code????


Hi Peter, If I understand your question correctly, you are asking what the code "HD" means for your machine. I am unable to find the code "HD", however, here is a list of the codes for these Maytag models, perhaps one looks similar to "HD". Hopefully this answers your question!

Washer displaying code messages
- "LF" (Washer is taking too long to fill)
Check the following:
Are the water inlet hoses kinked or clogged?
Are the water inlet valve screens clear?
Press PAUSE/CANCEL to clear display.
- "Ld" (Washer is taking too long to drain water from the wash tub)
Check the following:
Is the drain hose kinked or clogged?
Is the drain hose installed properly? See "Connect the Drain Hose." Press PAUSE/CANCEL
to clear display.
- "uL" (Unbalanced Load)
If the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while running an imbalanced
load correction routine at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code
remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open
lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press START.
- "oL" (Over Load)
Is the washer overloaded? The washer has attempted to fill and begin the wash cycle. If
the washer is overloaded, it will drain any water and detergent that was added during the
fill. To correct the overload, remove several items and add detergent. Close lid and press
START.
- "Sd" (Suds Detected)
Did you use regular detergent?
Regular or hand-washing detergents are not recommended for this washer. Use only High
Efficiency ("HE") detergent.
Did you add too much detergent?
Always measure detergent. Follow detergent manufacturer's directions.
If excessive suds are detected, the washer will display this code while running a suds
reduction correction routine at the end of the wash cycle. The suds reduction routine
removes extra suds and assures proper rinsing of your garments. If the code remains and
the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, re-select your
desired cycle using cold water. Press START. Do not add detergent.
- "lid" (Lid Opened)
Is the lid open? Close the lid to clear the display. If the lid remains open for more than 10
minutes, water in the wash tub will drain.
- "HC" (Cold and Hot hoses switched)
This code will appear at the end of the wash cycle to indicate that the cold and hot water
inlet hoses are switched. See "Connect the Inlet Hoses."
- "dL" (Door/Lid cannot lock)
Indicates lid is not locked. Check for items caught in the lid keeping it from closing. Press
PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "dU" (Door/Lid cannot unlock)
Is there excessive weight on the lid, such as a basket of laundry? Excessive weight will
keep the lid from unlocking. Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear the code.
- "F##" code
Press PAUSE/CANCEL once to clear code. Press START. If code appears again, call for
service.

The washer keeps going unbalanced. I get th ul code. What could it be. I have rebalanced the clothes and moved the washer


Solve the unbalanced problem yourself....
Open the top of the machine (press in with a flat putty knife about 3" in on the front on each side while lifting up as there are 2- 1" wide catches).

Once both sides are unlatched, raise the lid then slightly lift the rear of the lid so that it fits into the curved part at the top of the hinges then open all the way - tape the lid to the top so it doesn't flap about and scotch the lid to keep it from falling back down on you.

Now, look around - see all that rust?

The rust has fallen into and gotten underneath one or more of the 4 white plastic suspension "ball joints" which have probably totally dried out by now from their factory grease because of the water, bleach, and rust particles.

Having someone help you, simply lift up on one of the 4 corner suspension rods - gravity and weight is all that holds them down. The white ball will lift out of the socket and still be attached to the rod.

Clean out the rust, lightly sand the "socket" with emery cloth, then slop in a fingerful of grease. I used automotive wheel bearing grease with graphite in it.

Also scrub off all embedded rust on the white plastic ball.

Lower that corner back into the newly cleaned and greased socket and repeat for the other 3 corners. Now when you move the tub around notice how the balls pivot in their sockets like they are supposed to. When they were dry and rusty they wouldn't move enough to allow the tub to twist like it should so it slammed around - giving you the UL (Uneven Load).

Unplug the washer before attempting any service.

Loud knocking sound when in wash cycle GEWDSR2080


After taking off the front cover, look up at the top of the tub just under the lid. there should be a thick rubber strap at each corner of the machine tying in the tub to the top. These are called dampening straps. One or more may be broken. I usually replace all four if I do one.

Washing machine smells like stagnant water...making clothes smell bad as well. No visible water laying anywhere


The odor that you are experiencing may be from the growth of mold. Inside the washer, some small pools of water may be left standing and is harboring mold spores. Even though you may operate the washer regularly, the mold spores are not being washed away.I have a couple of tips that might help to eliminate odor issues in your washing machine. First, and the most effective in my research is to, leave the lid, or door to the unit open. By leaving the door open, it promotes air circulation and evaporation of standing water. The reduction in odor, will occur quickly and dramatically.

My second tip is to run the washer empty for a quick rinse cycle. Add an entire cup of bleach at the start of the cycle. The bleach is effective at destroying organisms, such as mold and bacteria. However, running it once will not be completely effective. I suggest pouring another cup of bleach into the wash tub, after the cycle has completed. This will leave bleach as the standing pool and should prevent the growth of mold or bacteria. However, if you do this, before doing a load of laundry you should run an empty rinse cycle again, to avoid damage to the clothes from the bleach left standing in the wash tub.

Maytag Washer, Model # MAH4000AWW (Neptune - front loader) appr. 4 yrs old


Hi john, There is a blue cover that i am suspecting you are missing from the softener/bleach dispenser. It fits over the two tubes in the dispenser and it siphons the water out. It is part number 22002266. Also the machine has a water filled balance ring. It is normal to hear sounds of water when the tub is turned. If you can see water in the spinner its a different story.

Tub and Basket


Fairway, sounds like you have a worn drive block. You are going to have to remove the agitator and inspect the drive block. If it is the drive block you will get some good hammering when the spin cycle stops. I will attach some photos of a worn out drive block. If you want to attempt to handle this yourself, we can walk you through it. Catriver..post back.
