Question about GE Washing Machines

1 Answer

GE washer model WNSR3120

My washer has three wash\spin speeds. The normal speed works but the other two do not. The other two speeds make a noise but the washer tub does not turn. We would like some ideas what the problem might be.

If your washer doesn't spin or agitate on either the delicate or regular cycle, check these:

Selector switch
Clutch assembly
Drive motor
Selector switch If your washer has a selector switch on the control panel, make sure the button for your selection is pressed all the way in, or set properly.

Clutch assembly Many GE®/Hotpoint® washers use a clutch and an automatic shift lever. This assembly is quite complicated. If there's a problem with it, you probably should contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washing machines have multiple-speed drive motors. Though it's uncommon, the drive motor may work fine on one speed but not on another. If the drive motor has failed on one speed, you need to replace the entire motor If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

Ive got a couple of the same model. They do agitate slower than previous models a couple of years older. I have gone as far as replacing the motor and got the same results. I can only assume that they are operating as Ge intended.

GE washer, does not spin


You probably broke the 4 black snubber straps on the top of the tub lid and it is cousing your washer to always be off balance and not reach a full speed spin

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
