Question about GE WDSR2080D Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Please help My washer started doing the exact same thing 3 weeks ago. Mine will work perfectly and then stop. No sounds from the motor at all. After it sits for a few hours it will work perfectly again... washes fine then starts to spin FOR A FEW SECONDS then quits. It started this about 3 weeks ago then started working perfectly for about 2 weeks... now it is on the blink again. One more thing I have noticed is that if you leave it on the timer will get to the spin cycle and drain all of the water out as if the system is actually about to spin. Once the timer gets to the spin cycle it goes silent completely. No hum or anything from the motor. just like it is turned off. ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED! THANKS. SYNOPSIS: 1 FILLS NORMALLY 2 WASHES FOR A FEW MINUTES 3 DRAINS NORMALLY 4 SOMETIMES SPINS FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN CLICKS ON AND OFF BETWEEN TRYING TO START AND STOP... THE WASHER DOES SPIN WHEN IT ATTEMPTS.. AND SOUNDS NORMAL.

I am having the exact same problem with this exact same machine I bought 2 weeks ago, from the 1st load on. I've watched the mechanism and see that it's not rotating. Repair guy out once, thinking my tenants aren't pushing the coin slide in hard or fast enough. Have to wait another week for repair guy to come out. Obviously there's an apparent defect in the Plastic Mechanism.

sounds like carbon brushes in the motor they can be replaced as they just pop out of the motor. carbon brushes are very resonably priced so worth while to do.

Humming sound from the washer

Sounds like the pump is locked up for some reason could be something stuck in it,I have pulled a lot of nickels out those for some reason, they are the perfect size to get down into the pump and get stuck.

Whirlpool AWM 6100/s - stopping mid cycle, not draining - unusual whirring noises, programme stops with '0' and '100' flashing on spin meter as well as paus and 'wash'

Yeah. This is a pump problem. Our machine first did this about 3 months ago. I took the filter plug out and removed about 10 coins from around the pump impeller area! I removed the pump and dismantled it. Unfortunately water was getting in past the seal on the pump spindle. I cleaned it all out and reassembled it. Worked fine till a couple of weeks ago. It has worn out the spindle "bearings" and because of the loose play it gets stuck, intermittently. If you are by the machine when the drain cycle starts , you can give the filter housing a few bangs(take off the circular cover) . The pump will start up .It makes a grumbly sound, as it is knackered. But once started will generally keep going.The answer however is a new pump. And probably a pact with everyone in your household to be more careful not to leave stuff in the clothes you put in the machine. Our washer has got through 2 mobile phones. a packet of bradding nails, a lot of cash, both coins and notes.Various other stuff that i wont mention! The pump gets very hot when it is trying to turn but cant because of debris on the impeller. This will lead to the pump failing after a time.

There is a thermal cut off on the motor. when it overheats it will trip and not start until the motor cools down. Replace the motor to solve the problem.

My frigidare glws1233a top load

Do you have this noise when operating an empty machine ? It could be cause an unbalanced load of clothes. Stop the machine, redistribute the clothes and re-start the machine. In case you still have this noise, the problem is with the transmition between the drive motor and the inner tub. Good luck !
