GE Profile washer

I have a GE profile washer which recently developed a freight train like grinding noise durring the spin cycle. The noise got progressively worse until it suddenly stopped as did the washers ability to wring clothes dry durring the spin cycle. I checked the rubber tub holders on each of the four corners and they look O.K. Is this a bearing, transmission, or clutch issue? and how much would each issue be?

Model # WPSR3100W0WW

Serial # GV170241G

Thanks

    Thank you kindly oldfixer. I was told by an online tech that it is the bearings but definitely will get an onsite estimate before proceeding any further. Thanks again.

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

Washer transmission dead?


Hi,
From your description, it sounds like the drum bearings have failed. If you grab the drum (power off, of course) it will probably wobble around a lot more than it should, and there might be metallic debris in the removable filter. White clothes may have been getting greasy spots on them recently.

Does any of this fit the bill with you? I hope it helps a bit to find out what's wrong.
If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

GE Washer WPSR3100W0WW roars like a freight train in spin cycle


You would need a transmission (WH38x10002) which comes with a new tub seal, and runs between $150 and $200. Check the back of the owners manual to see if your washer has a five year warranty on the transmission. (newest ones may be only 1 year) They do make a couple special tools which make the repair easier, and an experienced tech can do one in about a half hour, but your first one will take much longer. Motor is most likely just fine.
