I have a GE washer that makes a grinding sound. like a bearing
The most likely cause for the grinding sound would be the tub bearing WH2X1198. You would want to replace the bearing.
When my admiral top loader starts spinning it starts to jump around. If I stop it and rearange the clothes sometimes it spins ok or it starts banging again.
Answer Hello Tony. You need to check and see if the snubber 21002026 is bad on the unit. You will need to look for plastic shavings in the bottom of the machine. If there are some, the snubber ring 21002026 will need to be replaced to balance the machine.
My washer works great until it it's on the last spin cycle and it starts making a loud noise only then does it make the noise I found a white plastic piece inside the rim of the washer and if you feel around the entire rim you can feel where the white plastic is peeling off from the drum
Answer Hello Janice,
The first suspect would be a broken spinner support assembly, (spider). This is available as W10269756. If this is the problem you can detect it by opening the door and picking up and releasing the inner tub several times. Rotate the basket 1/3 of a turn and do it again. Rotate it another 1/3 turn and do it once more. If at any of these three points, there is more movement, the spinner support is the issue. If not, the outer tub seal and bearing W10253866 is probably going into failure.
What does a bad coupler look like?
Answer Hello Dann. The post will be broke or the center cracked. On some, the rubber will strip out on them.
