Tub fills up with smoke on high spin.
The most likely cause for the tub to fill up with smoke on the spin cycle would be that the inner tub is rubbing on the outer tub or the spin bearings are bad and need to replace the outer rear tub.
Why do I still hear a loud noise even though I replaced the GE tube bearings and seal? Thanks
Answer Hello Phillip,
There could be another issue or still in the area serviced. There is a lower bearing and brake assembly at the base of the transmission WH38X10002 that can fail and produce noise. The unit will need to be open and run to troubleshoot the source.
The tub has a lot of play in it what could that be?
You will need to check to make sure that the hub nut is tight and that the bolts holding the bottom plate of the tub in are tight.
Does the split ring support and rub against the inner tub and does it need lubricating like the tub bearing?
Answer WV, No, Do Not lubricate the split ring WH02X10265 but make sure the "hub washer" WH2X1199 is in place first(under the split ring) so it seals properly. You do have the right idea, the split ring does support the tub/hub assembly, and as you tighten the hub nut, all three components compress together in order to drive the tub. Thanks
Reinstalling a new split ring etc. My friend did not pay attention which side faces up the larger flat side or the other?
Answer Hi Lesabre. The Split ring washer part # WH02X10265. The large side(end) goes down first. It is placed onto the washer part # WH2X1199 first. So the cone shape top is made perfect to hold the tub support part # WH45X10060 as it is also tapered on the inside also. Thank You.
