Question about GE WSXH208A Front Load Washer
Machine less than 1 yr old. Problems started as soon as I accepted delivery. Machine is very loud during cycle, and barrell bangs during wash. Cycles take much longer than they should, and loads are soaking when at end of cycle. Repairman came to check machine, said nothing is wrong, there is nothing he could do. Machine adjusts itself to balance causing length of cycle to be longer. (Where is the efficiency in this??) Said I was not operating it properly (I have been doing laundry for 25 yrs & have not had these issues, nor do I have these issues with my other GE frontloader-different modle-at our vacation home) Was told need to pack the machine with clothes, wash large loads. Now my clothing is being shredded!!! I am furious, over $400.00 in clothing has been ruined!! Spoke to GE svce center and was told they have received these reports previously. Was transferred to supervisor & was told would need to send repairman out again since it has been 1 1/2 months sine last time they were out. If repairman says nothing worng with machine there is nothing they can do. Any suggestions??? has anyoe else had these problems??
We were having the same problems with ripped clothing and longer cycles. Our rubber seal by the door has ripped twice now causing massive amounts of water to run out. I learned through other threads that many people are having these problems and was told that zipping up zippers and turning jackets and clothing with big heavy stuff on them in side out to protect from ripping the clothing and the rubber seal. I removed the panel on the front bottom of the machince and there is a small gray cover that housed the coin trap. Mine was clogged and once I cleared that out, my cycle times got better. I hope this was somewhat helpful. We definitely won't be purchasing another GE front loader!!
