Question about GE WWSE6260B Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Loud knocking three separate times during cycle

The sound gets worse until it sounds like it's slowing down and then just stops. It seems to be when the tub goes back and forth. It spins just fine all other times.

    Is this not a problem I can fix myself?

    It's at least 5 years old and we're moving to Germany in October (USAF). Sounds like we need to get rid of it. Thank you for your help.

Friend,
ngfam1 At your service!

Sometimes this can happen when the connector from the transmission to the drive of the agitator is worn and needs to be replaced.Similar to tyhe drive shaft of a rear wheel drive v-8 car!

Could sound like a knock,knock,knock or klack, klack,klack

If so here is a good company that's found nation wide.

    This needs to be repaired by a trained laundry mechanic!
    And if its an old machine you have to decide if it's worth investing good money in to bad.(Bad being 9 years old or more)
    AND if it is a transmission replacement needed , I would cut my loses,
    And throw it out! you will hate your self if you spend a couple hundred for a transmission and the have something else go after that!
    How old is the washer?

Washing machine knocks and dims lights only during rinse cycle


Possible that the bearings are a suspect, if the machine seems to wobble around. Also if the load is high, does the noise go higher, if so check the suspension, check the mounting and the counter weights.

I had the same problem. The "fire alarm" sound is coming from the silver panel behind your washer. The panel is vibrating loudly during the wash cycle. A Sears repairman solved this by taking a small piece of cardboard (cut from a box) and wedging it between the side edge of the panel. He operated the washer's cycle and adjusted the tightness of the wedge until the loud sound stopped. It did! Hope this helps you!
