Washer does not agitate nor spin. Can hear a relay or circut breaker tripping out when you ask for it to run or spin. Can spin tub by hand, at first it was tight. It does pump out the water. The washer has sat in a garage for a couple of years.
You will want to test to see if power is getting to the motor of your unit. If there is power getting to the unit then you will want to take the belt off and see if the motor runs without being connected to the transmission pulley. If the motor WH49X10035 still does not run then you would need to replace the motor.
My washer experiences a clanking sound intermittently during the spin cycle. It appears to start only after the motor is hot after the washer has been in use for 10+ minutes, but once it starts, it is frequent and causes spinning to stop. Is the motor cutting out because t is getting too hot? How can I troubleshoot this?
You will want to pull the agitator and check the hub nut that holds the inner tub in place. If the hub is loose it will cause the inner tub to shift and cause an unbalanced issue which could cause the unit to shut down. Also check the pulley on the bottom of the motor to make sure that it is not getting loose when the motor heats up. If these check ok then the motor is most likely faulty.
I got this washing machine from the previous owner. Today this machine just suddenly does not drain the water & does not spin as well. Do I need to change the pump assembly & may the belt?
You will want to pull the pump and check to make sure that the pump is not clogged or restricted and make sure that the pump spins freely. Also look inside the pump to make sure that the impeller is not damaged. If clogged or restricted then remove the debris and try. It may be necessary to replace the pump assembly as a slow pump 350367 will cause the unit to not spin properly.
My washer seems to agitate like normal but the high speed spin is not happening. It spins slow but not fast. I also noticed an odor from the machine. The odor kind of smells like a burnt belt but not quite sure.
Answer Hello Andy,
You may want to check to make sure that there is nothing in the drain. If the unit is not draining properly it will not allow the unit to spin at the high speed. Check your drain pump for obstructions, things inside, make sure that the vanes are not damaged. Check drain line to make sure it is clear and not clogged.
my ge top loader machine works fine but just started recently having a horrible noise during the agitating cycle that gets even worse during the spinning cycle. No smells of anything burning only a very loud noise. Is this motor,bearing,transmission?? Will a 2 speed motor from another machine made by ge fit-5kmc145yta062500? I think my current washer is a profile or prodigy that is discontinued. would really like to repair and continue using my machine.
Answer Frank, You want to remove the front panel, and run the washer, and isolate the location of the noise, you'll need to be careful. You'll need a putty knife or similar tool, insert the blade into the seam between the front panel and washer top panel, and press in on the locking tabs, and pull the front panel towards you to relese it. Since there are no idler assembly or pulleys, you most likely have a "slipping" clutch and or noisy belt WH5X256 , WH1X2026. There is also the possibility of an issue in the motor itself WH49X10035 , and you want to use the proper part for the model number you have.
