Question about GE WJSR2070B Top Load Washer
Product: GE WJSR2070BWW washer. S/N# LD150598
Bought this GE back in 2002. The problem is when the timer gets to the section where the washer is to drain, it doesn't. If it does not drain than the spin motor will not kick-in. Ran a small load (Little water set on small).
When it came to the time the motor was to drain the soapy water the motor just made noise. (Not a very loud sound). It matters not weather the timer goes through the white section for whites or the dark section for darks, both will not drain the water & like I mentioned than it will not spin. This morning I turned the timer to where the washer should drain before the spin cycle was to kick in & low & behold the washer started to drain. (The drain motor did make a few seconds of noise before it kicked in). Once the water drained the spin cycle kicked in as it should. I found it odd that after my 2nd year service warranty was about to end (2004). GE wanted me to buy another warranty for $245.00 US. Than again in 2005, 2006 & 2007.
Each year a little higher in price. Being the washer is only six years old & this is a major problem & could add up the $$. Thought I'd try here. The home service call is only $74.00 & they say theres a 10% discount on any parts but a motor through a service company will be anything but cheap. Just got the feeling I'm heading for a screwing. I am 100% sure it is not the timer. There are no cloges, all drain lines have been removed & checked for lint build up. Washer is & has always been level. Never over load the washer. So my question is where can I get a price on a replacement drain motor, how to dissasemble the washer to get at the pump/motor & where can I get either parts or a new pump? My last washer was a White westinghouse. Bought new back in 1985 & was still working when it was replaced by this GE in 2002. (Sold it for $50.00). My gas stove is still running, also bought in 1985. I'd like to think I take care of my stuff.
Any help would be great.
Actually it sounds like there was or is something in the water pump (like a string or metal underwire from a bra). before replacing the water pump i would look inside it and check for foreign objects.
