GE washer - Excessive shaking in between phases

Hi all, the washer clunks at the end of each phase and does not automatically move on to perform its next task. however, ive found that i can manually set the knob to initiate the next phase. this works until it begins to shake/clunk again at the end of that phase. -ive checked the drain hoses, drain holes and pump and have found no clogging or residue of any kind. -ive also checked the tension on the belt and that is also fine. any further suggestions or info is much appreciated. thanks

I have a 1992 Ford F350.Just replaced the rear end. It still makes a clunking noise when I put it in reverse. What could it be

the "backlash" felt by reversing the drive shaft direction is normally the clearance in the spider gears in the diff so to get rid off that ( not necessary unless it is excessive) is to pull the diff center out and fit new thrust washers behind the spider gears
next check the diff mount bushes as the diff reaction will move the bolts in the mounts and make the noise

a person that can hear, and lever parts. and find excess play.
and more. its human thing, no net bunny can answer .
go there, do that
and watch him work. see all that he does.
excess play its called, or excess clearances.
we find it by inspection and man handling some parts.

all you told us is clunking

moving only , only on bumps
only in turns
does so coasting? in gear and out?
or only under power, ?
can you hand bounce the front end and make noises.
can you lift a tire, and feel excess play.
can you lever joints upfront and they show excess play?
an more.

98 Camry - 4 cylinder automatic. Excessive torque steer - very noticeable pull to right on hard acceleration and back to left when you let off the gas. Motor mounts appear to be intact. I do hear and...

You need to check for a possible missing rubber bushing on the left front suspension, most likely on the control arm. My daughter's car had the same symptom, and that was what I ended up finding. I replaced all of bushings on where the torsion bars bolt up to the control arms, and it drove fine after that. I hope you have success in finding a fix.!

How can one use a 3 phase wood lathe in a residential area where single phase power supplied. Have 50 amp breaker supply to shop. What is required to hook up 3 phase Centauro TC 1200 (Italian wood lathe)...

You need a phase converter. The link below is a a selection from Grizzly. You can also find them on e-bay. There are two types - static (no moving parts) and rotary (much more expensive). The rotary type give you full performance delivering true 3-phase power to your machine. But for a minor loss in power (maybe 20%) the static type does the job quite well - assuming you don't need all of the power that your 3-phase motor can deliver. Here's the link:
good luck. Vote if you found this helpful. Al K
