Water level overflows, not controllable

  • Customer: Ron from Grass Valley CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
Problem was the water level hose from the bottom of the tub to the level switch was clogged, would not blow clean. Replacement required removal of the washer top and front panel as well as the control panel to access the hose. It was very difficult to find the proper path for the new hose as there was no apparent hole for the hose to pass through from the control panel to the bottom of the tub. Pay close attention when the old hose is removed to see this path.

This job did not take much longer than 15 minutes if that.1st take the cord or twine and loop it under 2 paddles of the agitator.( there is a small groove under each of the paddles that has enough space to put the cord in) Pull up on the cord to remove the agitator. 2nd. Under the agitator is a bolt that secures the agitator coupling. Remove that bolt. Keep bolt(you may want to replace this bolt if rusted and worn. Mine was still ok so I reused it.) 3rd pull up on Agitator coupling to remove. Teeth were worn on Coupling, So discard. 4th Insert new coupling, replace bolt to secure coupling. finally slide agitator back over coupling till locks back in place. ....Done.

Timer knob would not engage. It spun freely and would not move the dial. Over time, the teeth that engaged the dial became stripped and broken off.

I pulled the knob to the out position allowing more room behind the knob where the Timer Knob Clip cpould be grasped with a pair of needle nose pliers. After removing the Timer Knob Clip, the Timer Knob is pulled off the shaft. (The 'teeth' on the knob were worn and broken so the timer could not be engaged). Put the new knob onto the shaft then insert the Timer Knob Clip (using the needle nose pliers) locking the knob in place on the shaft. That's it. The entire process takes about 20 seconds.

Got on web to troubleshoot. It said to check Lid Switch & Fuse. So I bypassed them both & it worked so that's the parts I ordered. It works great again. Thanks

original hose was damaged during move

  • Customer: john from framingham MA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Unlike most washers, the hose goes inside the discharge tube and none of the nearby big-box stores stock the correct replacement. Parts Select delivered the perfect replacement within 48 hours! I used a nut driver to remove the hose retaining clip at base of washer; put the new clip (old one was still ok) around the new hose, applied liquid soup around the outside the end of the new hose to ease installation of new hose into discharge tube; screwed the clip back into the washer; secured the other end of the hose into the drain with a giant twist-tie. Took 10 minutes, less than $15, all works perfectly.

Washer would finish a cycle and the water would not drain the tub.

I took off the front of the washer with two screw drivers. Removed the hose clamps with the pliers then removed the two screws with the nut driver and changed out the pump. Nothing to it. Easy fix, it works like new for $45 and 15 minutes.

My machine is exactly 5 yrs old. First, I ordered two knobs as the shipping cost was more than the price of the knob. I (hubby) used the suggestion on your website, removing the nylon/plastic retainer clip to take off the old knob. He then put the new knob on. It has been suggested that I turn the knob very slowly and only clockwise. I agree that this is not the quality I expect from GE.

Easiest thing I ever did on the computer. U tube helped me diagnose the problem and how to remove the old pump and install the new. Parts Select menu was easy to navigate and had a picture of the pump I needed. The cost was affordable and I got the satisfaction of making the repair myself.

Tube shaking like out of balance. Water not draining completely and created an unpleasant odor

Main thing is watch the video. It may vary a little according to the age of your appliance, as it did with me but common sense guides. The difference was minor on my part. Two hex head screws to remove per strap and they had to make them 1 size different. Go figure. Have your change handy. A ratchet nut driver will save you some time.

Repair went great. The large nut had to be soaked to free it but the part was an exact fit.
