Question about GE WBVH6240F Front Load Washer

2 Answers

The drum inside my ge wbvh6240fww washer is loose. I can move it around with my hands. During spin cycles it sounds like a tornado, and the room fills with smoke from where the drum rubs. The belt is fine, the shipping bolts are removed. Are there rollers or bearings between the plastic tub that surrounds the metal drum, that could be worn? or is the metal(inside) drum held steady by bearings in the rear of the unit?

I have the same washer and i had an expert come and check it out and they said it was the bearings in the drum. I was quoted $600 to fix the problem. what it is, you have to replace the the whole back half of the out plastic drum which have the bearings factory sealed on it.

I am having the same problem.
Did you find a solution.
Our washer is just a little over 2 years old and I am trying to decide if I should just cut my losses and never buy a GE product ever again.

During spin cycle the washer makes a loud thumping noise. Not a clanging/sharp noise. When I manually turn drum it sounds like something is loose inside. Like a ball may sound inside drum as it turns.


Is it a front loader? You may have something stuck between the tubs or it may be a broken "paddle" One of the plastic baffles that move the clothes around in the tub. they should all be tightly against the tub.

The washer is 2.5 years old. The Basket has no stability during the spin and wash cycle. The basket bangs against the side of the machine and the machine bounces around the laundry room moving sometimes...


they do dance well dont they? this is caused by the support springs coming off the drum holder and the drum will have droped a little as well,
take off the top of the washer and look down each side you should see the support springs if the off just hook them back on or fit new one's?
dont leave this as it will pull all the pipes off inside the washer
its an easy fix,

Mine was doing this and my husband tightened the huge bolt on the back of the drum. This is where the belt attaches. Evidently this bolt when loose can cause that outrageous sound.
