SOURCE: GE Washing Machine Replacement Motor - Capacitor? Relay? Schematic?

The new units have all of your schematics, capacitor and a higher price for a reason. With GE I avoid used parts because there is so much electronics you don't want to fry. The wire harness leads match the old and there should not be an extra wire, were would it go if there is not a receptacle for it?
I looked up your unit and the motor replacement is WH20X10009 for the model you quoted. As of now GE is has updated this to model wh20x10006 for around 263 dollars.

SOURCE: replacing the agitator dogs in a Kenmore 80 series washer

Hi, Remove the cap on the agitator and then remove the inside cover. There is a 7/16" bolt under the inside cover. Remove the bolt and the agitator will lift out. Seperate the 2 pieces of the agitator and replace the dogs. You might have to use a flat blade screw drive and punch out the 4 tabs around the bolt hole in the agitator if this applies.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: ge eterna series dryer.It gets very hot and shut's

This is most likely one of the thermostats. One is for high temp, one is for low temp. They are both located on the inside of the back wall on the sheet metal rim that the drum fits into. You have to remove the top and front panel, remove the belt and the drum itself (just pull it straight out through the front of the dryer) to access them. Once you remove all that they are in the upper-left corner of the back wall (if you are looking in from the front of the dryer). They are simple to replace, with only one screw holding them in place. I have an Eterna series and I happen to have it all tore apart right now waiting for the rear bearing I ordered to come in and can see them clearly. If you need photos I will be more than happy to email them to you.

The answer above was incorrect about the wiring, there will be two wires to one and four wires to the other. I believe the one with the four wires is the hi-temp thermostat, but double-check that with your local appliance parts house. If you have it that far apart, you might as well replace the bearing ($11 for mine) and the belt cause they will eventually wear out anyway.

Good luck!

My Ge Eterna washer will not drain the water but will spin on spin cycle


You got no clear question here. Does the spin cycle pumping out water or not. If it is spinning but water was not pumping out so the issue is from the pump. It is either blogged or out of order.

Washer will fill and spin but will not agitate ge top load washer wwsr3130w0ww


It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these: Lid switch Motor coupler Belts Clutch Drive motor Drive pulleys Transmission Agitator Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it. Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it. Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.) Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician. Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor. Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Wbsr3140dw will not agitate


Hi there,

There are 2 region of having this problem -

First of all you can check the Lid switch -
If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

then you check the Clutch -
If your washer was made by GE, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it.

Thanks

Kenmore 70 series is slow to spin


it sounds like you have a bad clutch in the washer. To diagnose this failure, you would need to pull off the washer cabinet and pull the transmission. It is likely that you would find the clutch band glazed over. It is probably not exerting enough torque to release the brake and spin the washer.If you find this problem, you can try sanding the band to rough it up. Reassemble the washer and check for proper spin. If this fixes the problem, you will need to order and replace the clutch band.
This type of procedure is usually performed by a service technician. I don't recommend attempting this repair unless you are completely confident that you can safely perform the work.
