Question about GE WBSR3140DW Top Load Washer

Open Question

I have GE washer model WWSR3090T top loading, it is 13 years old. Never had any problems until the other day. The basket has always been very stiff inside the machine. The other day when removing washed clothes, the basket is now real loose and I can move it side to side easily. It still washes and rinses, but something must have come loose. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: My Ge washing machine is leaking from the Bottom

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: washer wil not spin or drain out after cycle completed

sounds like drain is plugged. this is a fairly easy fix,and you actually get paid to do it. unscrew the bottom panel of your washer should be 3 screws on the very bottom then you will see a white plug that is about 2 1/2" unscrew it (make sure you have a bowl under it water will leak ) and pull it out. this is where you get paid you will find all kinds of change and junk just clean it out reinstall and your clothes will be a lot drier after the spin cycle

SOURCE: Stiff clothes in my GE front load washer

Add two cups of white vinegar to the tub and run the hottest and longest cycle. this will clean out your machine thoroughly.

After that add one cup of white vinegar to the wash to prevent stiffness

HOW DO YU GET THE SPNNER NUT KENMORE 90 SERIES WASHER? I DO NOT HAVE A SPANNER WRENCH.


You'll really will need the spanner wrench for the spanner nut on the basket drive block. If you try to make a tool or use some other method, you risk injury and possibly damaging your washer basket.

The spanner wrench is made by Supco, part #TB123A. It has various other part numbers from the appliance manufacturers. It is compatible with Whirlpool, Maytag, GE, and Kenmore. Most Kenmores are made by Whirlpool.

If you want the wrench same day, call local appliance shops and ask if they sell the spanner for the Kenmore Series 90. I got mine from a local shop and paid $13.

You could also buy one on eBay or another reasonable online source.
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313&_nkw=tb123a&_sacat=0&_from=R40

Or Google search: TB123A

Don't pay more than $20 including shipping.

You can always sell it on eBay once you are done with it. It won't lose much value being used since it doesn't really wear out.

You'll need a hammer too, preferably with a hard rubber head, or use a wooden mallet. If you use a steel hammer, be careful when you strike the spanner wrench to loosen the spanner nut. Wrap the steel hammer head in an old washcloth or rag. You don't want to accidentally strike the porcelain enamel lining of the basket - it will chip and that can lead to rust of the metal.

Do I keep my old Kitchenaid extra capacity or keep the new GE GTWP1000


The GE has a capacity of 3.3 cubic feet. You did not list the model of the kitchenaid. Make sure the GE was stored correctly because if it might have lost oil or gotten brittle belts or gaskets. Also it might have frozen.

Whirlpool washer does not start after fill with water


It sounds like the washer tub is off balanced. When it is, it will usually not start. Underneath the washer, there are 3 or 4 bolts or nuts, depending on your washer model, that hold the washer to these balance springs. make sure that the bolts or nuts are tight or secure. If this doesn't help, get on a website called Repairclinic.com. They usually will help with home repairs.

Washer leaks small amount. DIY fix: check hoses and ???


Wires found in hose!
When we turned washer on it's side, we found the hose from the pump to the basket had been pierced by two stiff curved wires, still embedded in the hose. Water was leaking around the wires. Wires had come out of an underwire bra! Dealer had only heard of this once before; on his own washer!
MORAL: handwash your bras, ladies.... or pull those wires out each time.

Washer will not spin


Could be a bad clutch or transmission. I would either call a tech or get a new washer (these newer GE models don't seem to be very reliable, go for a Whirlpool/Kenmore model next time). Here are breakdown diagrams for your washer: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=230151 Hope this helps, APP Tech
