    Thanks for your help! Thats what I tought. 2 years old and looking at $500.00 to $600.00 repair parts and labor, the bearings are pressed into the drum. I'll see what GE customer relations will do? A new one is $699.00 at home depot were we got the first one for $764.15 something really isn't right.

I have a different suggestion based on my washer's similar problem. If the black stuff is powdery and localized at the back of the unit, more than likely the culprit is the drum pulley itself is warped, causing the belt to chafe against the drum. The black powder is rubber residue from the scraping of belt on plastic. No need to replace unit. New belt and new pulley run about $70 each.

Drum bearings and water seal have failed usually confirmed as a rumbling noise when drum is spun by hand the black stuff is grease and wash water leaking from the bearings due to the failure of the water seal in front of the bearings

Machine making a knocking noise during spin cycle. The drum shaft has alot of free play front to rear and I suspect that is where the problem resides.


If your machine is making louder than normal noise during spin it could be the failure of the basket. Mine is just under three years old and the basket became looser than normal in the tub. I diassembled the machine...a lot of work...and found the aluminum casting around the shaft and bolted to the basket had rotted away. It looks like it was attacked by the bleach since I had my water checked and its pH is fine. It is likely the root of the smell we have experienced with our clothes when they sit too long in the machine. I spoke with GE and they gladly agreed to replace the parts needed but it is a ton of work to install them. I plan to treat the new part with some zinc chromate if I can get some before the parts arrive. See the picture if it attached correctly.

Washing machine won't turn back and forth


Most likely your drive belt has slipped off. Open up the back of teh washer and see if the drive belt has slipped off and ease it back on with a screwdriver.

Ge front load washer won't go into rinse cycle.


Check the cold water hose. My brand new machine had this behavior until I discovered a kink in the cold water hose - works great now.

Makes horrible noise during spin cycle only


The bearings have most likely gone bad. This is a very common problem with the front load washer when powder soap is used.

Load noise in final spin cycle


turn the tub on the inside if it feels ruff as it turns and makes a noise then most likely you have a bad rear bearing, if it is smooth in turning and no noise then turn to drain or spin possibly something stuck in drain pump. the drain pump will start up first if you hear the noise then the drain pump is accessed from the front lower cover, if its the rear bearing probably not worth fixing about 400.00 in parts and alot of work.

Noise during spin cycles


GE WPXH214ACC Washer drum makes loud noise when spinning sometimes. We've had it since 2005 & never had this happen before. Washer is level, must stop & redistribute clothes to correct. Just started happening now.

Spin cycle not working


Maybe the spring device that keeps the belt tight is not working properly. You need to make sure what ever it is that keeps that belt tight is working properly or not damaged. The belt is very important for the spin to work good. Match it up with your old belt. The old belt will be slightly longer because of being stretched over a period of time. Get your unit number and model number (or take the belt) and go to your nearest dealer and get the correct belt.
