Reading all the reviews and drawing from the experience shared on Parts Select for this problem saved me a lot of time and money. Two particular remarks saved my day: - always buy the hub nut, Part Number PS271505 when you have to replace the Inner Tub Base Hub, Part Number PS273296 and do not even attempt / waste time to try to loosen the hub nut, just use a chisel and remove it that way. The replacement of the parts where simple and quick after the hub nut was gone, the result is a working washer. Doing this myself saved me a couple $100.-'s as we where quoted well over $200.- by a repair company to fix this and it is really a simple thing to do yourself. Shipping of the parts was extremely quick - thanks for the great service

The trouble shooting suggested the problem and how to resolve by replacing so did an appliance retail parts place. Both suggested replacing the water level pressure switch. Took only 15 minutes to replace. Machine worked fine with 1st full washing. However, the 2nd full washing the washer would not spin. Went back to the trouble shooting on the computer. Someone suggested the tube from the washer tub to the pressure switch was stopped up with lint. Took hose off and blew into it. Lint came out the washer is working fine.

Take front of machine off, unscrew bottom and lay out just enough to get under the machine you do not have to take it completely off. After that unscrew center bolt holding wheel and wrap belt around then attatch the belt to the power spinner pull down as best you can and reattatch the wheel and bolt back up.

I removed the agitator, replaced the agitator coupling. The guy at the appliance store where I was able to find the part said to check the splines on the inside of the agitator as well. Glad I did, the splines on the agitator were worn out too. So by checking both, if and when the problem occurs, REPLACE BOTH parts! This will save a lot of grief for you!

Repair was done with the help of step by step insructions available on utube, just enter model# and the repair you need to do. One problem I had was new tub seal{GE part] was a little smaller in diamater than the seal I removed And still leaked when I first ran washer So I took it back out and used a sealer [Permatex Indian Head gasket shellac compound from auto parts store] as recommended by one of the the repair techs on utube and it sealed it perfectly, just let it set op for about three hours and nice and dry now
