Question about GE WHRE5260E Top Load Washer

Open Question

WHRE5260E1WW will not start

When I turn the dial the indicator lights come on for about 15 seconds but when I push the Start button nothing happens. Does not seem to matter what setting is used. Machine had a similar problem for a while. If I moved the cycle selector back and forth it would start working. Now nothing. I tried to put it in diagnostic mode (hold start button and rotate selector 180 degrees) but diagnostic mode does not appear to work either.

SOURCE: reattached tub, but spin cycle doesn't work

the belt might have come off of the tub take it back apart and look underneath and see if the drive belt is loose or on the floor when the tub came loose it probably slipped the belt off before stopping.

The help that you gave me was completely wrong. The support ring was okay. I solved my problem by buying a new timer and control knobs. The teflong 'gears' were worn out so the knobs rotated freely.

SOURCE: wash cycle dial wont turn...will still push in and pull to start

We have a GE WJRR4170 washer, with the same problem. At first I thought I might have to unscrew the entire control panel just to replace the knob. However, replacing the knob turns out to be easy.

Right behind the knob, holding it in place, is a nylon/plastic retainer clip. If you pull out the knob (into the "start" position), you will get easier access to the retainer clip. You can use a flathead screwdriver to push the clip out. The knob then will slide easily off the metal stem. A GE replacement knob costs $9 or $10, depending on the source.

Shame on GE, but the knob is designed terribly. The part of it that engages the dial has eight, flimsy plastic teeth. At any time, four of these are supposed to engage four little slots in the dial. However, the way the knob is designed, there will be a lot of wear and tear on these plastic teeth, so they'll wear out on every single machine.

Good luck to the many people who will have this problem!

SOURCE: My front loading WCVH6260F will go through the

Hi, I had the exact same problem. If you take out three phillips head screws at the bottom of the front bottom panel. Pull the panel down and off. Behind on the right is a white plastic circle. If you turn it counter clockwise it will unscrew and you can pull out and remove all sorts of debris from it. Be careful if the washer is full you get wet as it will drain through the opening. Since then I/ve had no problem and I found about a dollars worth of change in the filter for my trouble.

Please clarify use of the 3 smaller dials and how the hands to each are set and reset


The small bottom dial is seconds counter and there is no option to set or reset it as it is part of the main gear train - it just counts the seconds. Top right dial is 1/10 seconds counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 1 second. Top left dial is 30 minutes counter and runs only when the chronograph function is engaged. One full circle indicates 30 minutes, two circles = 1 hour. The big centre seconds hand is actually Chronograph hand and runs only when the chrono function is engaged. So, the chronograph hand and two top dials works all together when chrono function is engaged. To start chrono: push upper button once. To stop chrono: push upper button again (once). To return all hands to zero: push lower button once. There is another option: if you already stopped chrono by pushing upper button, but want to continue counting without returning hands to zero, push the upper button once more and the counting will start from the point where it stopped. You can repeat this as many as you wish - it will count on and on, till you will stop it and reset to zero. Fine tuning of chrono hands can be made by pulling the crown half way out and while leaving in this position pushing and holding one of the push buttons (which one - depends on movement caliber). Watch has an tachymeter function as well (big inner ring). Learn how to use it by browsing through my Tips and Tricks- it is explained there. Rate me, please.
