Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
I have a GE Front Loader that makes a load noise during the spin cycle and I'm assuming the tub bearing is worn. After removing the rear cover and belt, I noticed the tub pulley had some minor play as it moves up and down. I'm wondering if the bearing can be replaced or do I need to replace the entire rear tub w/ the bearing. Also, is it recommended to allow a tech to completed the repairs.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated,
it will be your bearings not the belt or pulle you can check this out by having it empty open the door place the palm of your hand on the outside were the top of the door closers to place your fingers ti the inside of the top of inner drum and pull your fingers towards your palm if there is the slightist movement than the bearings need replacing

i have the same problem as urs. i open the whole drum myself and replaced the rear bearing. but the actual problem is the bearing housing is loose in plastic drum. so only drum needs to be replaced.

there are springs under the machine that attatch to the tub in 3 to 4 places if one of these springs break it will cause the tub to bang.

There is a belt tensioner pulley. If it is failed - your belt won't properly tension.
It appears your tensioner has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
