Question about General Electric WCVH6800J Front Load Washer

Open Question

The spin cycle of the front loader GE WCVH 6800J has a high ping noise (like a zipper hitting the glass) and wobbles and can't get up to the higher spin speeds. The wash cycle appears to be normal and doesn't ping or wobble.

It's possible that the tub suspension system is out of position. Open the cabinet top (use a thin putty knife in each front corner to release a spring clip) and watch the mechanism while washing. Try shaking the assembly to see if you can spot something rubbing. Hope this helps!

My ge front loader is making a banging noise while in spin cycle


When I was researching which washer to buy I read that this one is not the best choice to have on a second floor. Ours is on the main floor and can still be a little loud in the spin cycle. Have you balanced the machine properly? Otherwise, I think I read that people have had success putting a thick, dense rubber mat (like a stall mat for horses) under the washer to minimize the sound/wobbling. Good luck!

Washing machine drum is very wobbly


* General tips
* Balance the load
* Level the machine
* Inspect the water pump for a blockage
* Inspect the coupling
* Inspect the transmission
* Adjust the drive belt tension
* Check the motor bearings
* Check the drum brakes

The above are possibly the general remedies for this problem.But possible if the problem still persists after this, possibly the drum bearings might have been damaged during the previous heavy vibrations.Please do post comments.Will be glad to help you out.Good luck.

Brand new front load kenmore wobbles and moves across floor


Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.
