Question about General Electric Washing Machines

2 Answers

I have a GE Adoration WHDRE526E1WW top load washer. It drains and hits spin but will not spin. Lid switch seems to work. When tested the motor kicks on but will not turn the tub. Few times I manually spun the tub and it continued. Now it won't do that. Belt in good shape. Everything seems to be trying to work but tub won't spin. No clothing articles between tub and cover either. HELP!

It really sounds like the belt. You say it's in good shape but if it's loose or shiny from not having proper tension it wont have enough friction between the belt and pulley to actually work. If you've ever tried to move the drum when its full of clothes and water you know how much force id needed to function. Double check that belt tension and working surface.

Hi.

If the motor runs and machine drains regularly then the problem is usually the pressure switch.

Before replacing pressure switch test also the door lock. To test it in full a technician must jump its contacts.

SOURCE: my whirlpool direct drive washer will not spin.

The coupling needs to be replaced, it has broken in two pieces and cannot transfer power from the transmission. That part is around 25 bucks if you have a local appliance store, sears usually has to order them. But appliance repair shops usually keep them on hand, it's a common part..

SOURCE: I have a GE clothes washer,I bought in 2005.I am

I have had a lot of problems with the GE top loaders where the pressure switch hose on the tub gets caked up with debris. first i would take off the front panel, all you need is a putty knife where the top meets the front panel, about 2-3 inches from both sides are small clips you have to lift up slightly. after that the pressure switch hose should be on the tub left hand side. pull it off and clean both the tub connection and the hose with a pipe cleaner.
but your original problem with the unit constantly running through all the cycles i would have to know what model # it is to say for sure but it could be the mechanical timer, or if its digital it may need the control unit.
but clean the pressure switch hose first.

SOURCE: oil is leaking throught the seal into the tub on

That's usually an indication that the transmission has failed. You MIGHT be able to replace the seal and have it work properly, but that seldom solves the problem. The seal usually fails because the bearing has worn, allowing the shaft to move too far from side to side.

Kenmore stylemaster 902202 will not spin, agitate or drain tub spins freely


Check door switch: If the lid switch is bad it will not drain or spin. Try this test: With lid open let it finish wash cycle. Press lid switch down with screwdriver. Washer should begin draining. Release switch. Motor should stop. Press switch a second time. Washer should start spinning as it continues to drain. If motor doesn't come on while lid switch is pressed, replace the switch. Or

Won't spin, won't drain


Hi...

If your washer does not drain, you need to check this:

  • Inspect the drain hose for kinks
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the lid switch (some models)
  • Inspect the water pump
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect the motor coupler
If it does not spin check also this:

  • Test the lid switch
  • Test the timer control
  • Test the centrifugal switch
  • Test the water level switch
  • Inspect the motor coupler
  • Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  • Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  • Test the motor
  • Inspect the pulley
  • Test the transmission

Good luck !!!

Kenmore 23812 top load washer


The lid switch is ususlly the first to go. Luckily, it is easy to replace. To test the washer, connect the lid switch wires together. If the washer spins, you need to replace the switch.
