GE Washer Mod. WPSR3100W1WW Ser. RV120 945G Tub seal(s) defective, especially on larger load settings. Am unsure of dis-assembly process. Apparently housing must be detached and lifted off working mechanism. Also, are there inner and outer seals, and finally, should bearing(bushing) be replaced? M. Hawryluk

Here's a helpful little diagram

here is a picture of what the seal will look like

If you are taking it apart anyway and the bearing looks worn down a little, then it wouldn't hurt to replace it.

good luck and let me know if you are having trouble or need any further help

Yeppers to all of these..you would be well served to grab a service manual on this item, before proceeding. Also, you may wish to enquire of GE, as to parts availability.

I'm trying to find a part for my whirlpool washer mod#wtw6200sw3. It is the outer tub shaft seal. fsp 6545958


Hello Robby, welcome to FixYa.

I'm pretty sure I know what you're referring to and unfortunately it isn't good. Many times this is associated with the basket drive assembly, in fact I don't think you'll find that part as a stand alone component.

Where did you get that number, on the actual part perhaps ? Many times the manufacturer will stamp parts with identification numbers as they are built, but they do not become available for individual part sales, only assembly line.

To obtain that seal will require the purchase of a complete a tub assembly unfortunately...unless you can match the seal specs. to an aftermarket seal manufacturer (though the seal has likely worn for reason's of shaft or bearing wear/failure).

Depending on the age of your washer you should inquire about warranty. (you will likely require a proof of purchase and your owners manual)

**I'd suggest contacting your local Whirlpool service/warranty provider as these have a two - five year (parts only...check your owners manual for confirmation) warranty on the tub and bearing components**

I'll watch for your reply and certainly help you in any manner I can. Thank you for visiting FixYa today and good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

The washer is leaking from the bottom


Your center seal is going bad or you have a bad hose, leaking water pump, or a cracked tub but GE is notorious for there center tub seals to going bad I would recommend a qualified service technician come look at it to rule out which one it is if your centers tub seal is bad I would buy a new washer but sorry for the troubles.

GE Topload Washer WPSR3100W1WW -- finished spin cycle, clothes were spun as normal. Water on the floor after spin cycle. When jiggling tubs, we can hear there is some water still in machine. Bottom metal...


That is normal. The balance ring has liquid in it. # 327
On these machines the tub is suspended with 4 metal rods. The lateral movement is controls by 4 straps. When these stretch the tub gets loose and water slings out the washer. Seen it.

We have a kenmore elite washer mod. 970-c40062-00 ser. xc11700832. the washer leaks, and is very noisy. It is 10 years old


Your Stainless Steel drum is supported inside of the washer tub by a spider assembly. The assemply, which is made of cast aluminum, has corroded (steel and aluminum and detegent don't mix) and the spider assembly has broken. The drum has likely wobbled enough to wear a hole through the tub. You need to replace the drum and spider assembly, and tub.

Leaking from the bottom from GE super capacity plus washer maching


Take the front off and if it is leaking from where the transmission meets the tub the tub seal is bad. When this happens you have to replace the seal and the transmissson. This page can help http://appliance-repair-it.com/GE-washer-disassembly.html

Washer will spin but not very fast


It is very likely that the transmission needs to be replaced/repaired.

Inside most top loading washer transmissions is a small part that lets the motor drive the transmission in either the agitation mode or the spin mode. When this part shifts back and forth into the position for wash or spin, it can get broken.

When it locks the transmission into the spin position, the motor and transmission can now spin the wash tub to help remove excess water from the clothes. When this lock breaks, the washer will still wash and agitate and the motor will still pump out the water in the washer, but without the fast spinning of the tub, clothes will not be damp dry enough to be put into the dryer. Sometimes the unit will spin a little, but not nearly enough to really remove water from the clothes, especially if you're doing towels and other heavy items, etc.

The part itself isn't much money, but the problem is that the repair isn't easy for even a good DIY'er to perform, as you have to remove the agitator, wash tub, tub seal boot, and the transmission from the cabinet just to get ready for the repair process.

IF you can even get the repair part for the broken transmission (difficult as most manufacturers only let authorized service dealers buy these sub-components these days), it will be VERY messy to disassemble the transmission and remove all the oil and broken metal pieces from the transmission lock part and then completely clean out the inside of the transmission housing replace the gear assembly and put in the new lock piece, plus add back new, clean appliance trans oil and a new end seal on the transmission housing.

When I first started out as a service tech, we used to rebuild the washer transmissions on used customer "trade-ins" when we had nothing else scheduled, so we could resell the used appliances and make a few bucks.

Bottom line is that for all the time, mess and expense you're going to have to go through, it is probably best to buy a new washer. Especially if your washer is more than 10 years old, since the tub is probably starting to get rust spots, etc.

GE washer Model WDSR2080D5WW Transmission shaft wobbles


If you can't loosen the nut, you can break it with a hammer and a metal chisel. Tub nut is cheap. Grease on clothes = new transmission time.
By the way, after you remove the inner tub,.... you have to take the entire outer tub assembly out of the washer, flip it upside down, remove the yoke that holds the motor onto the outer tub, and pull the transmission out through the bottom of the outer tub.

Whirlpool cabrio washer keeps flashing code F50


The F50 error code indicates that the RPS (rotor position sensor) detects no motor rotation. Check to see if the basket spins freely. If not, you could have an item caught between the outer tub and the inner spin basket. A toy or other item underneath the washer could also prevent the basket from spinning and would result in this F50 code.

If the basket spins freely, you could have a wiring failure that would prevent the motor from spinning.

Washer leaking


There are several things that will leak under a GE washer. The the usual suspects are drain hose connections, or hoses that have cracks or holes. I would inspect the hoses first as this would be the easiest fix. The other thing that can causes problems is the wash tub seal on the bottom of the tub. If the spanner nut (under the agitator) comes loose, the seal will unseat and the tub will begin to drip (I've had this one happen to me). Another cause can be the wash tub itself (I've also experienced this one). Inspect the wash tub for cracks. The tub can develop stress cracks and begin to leak. Especially if this is a washer that was involved in a move. To access the inside of the machine, the front should come off by pushing under the front lip of the machine with a putty knife. There are metal clips that hold the front to the top. Look in the crack with a flashlight to locate them. Push in with a putty knife to release and the front should just come off. I hope this helps you.
