Specifically ordered an on/off SWITCH. The part description says start/stop SWITCH and the part name on your invoice calls it a button SWITCH. I got a rubber button. Your rep took care of me and deducted the part and shipping charge. She said GE describes the button as a switch and that is the problem. I am looking at the part and it is in the GE package and it is described as a button/switch. As I said , your rep took good care of me but this was an inconvenience to me.

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

  • Tools Required: Pliers, Socket set

When I received the replacement part, I was shocked at the small size compared to original equipment. I doubt the new part will last 12 years which is how long the original lasted. I installed it anyway because I did not want to wait for a better one from some other company. The new part was easy to install, but was not worth the price because it surely will not last.

This site and buying experience WOWED ME!!! After realizing what happened, I searched how to open up a washer, since I had never done it before. My search brought me to your site, which had an excellent 'how to' video for my exact problem of replacing the pump! I ordered the part, which was delivered to my door in LESS than 24 hours! Unfortunately, there was undrained water in the washing machine so while undoing the clamps on the old pump, the water drained on my kitchen floor, so beware of that issue. Because of the positioning of the pump, the clamps were a little tricky to redo, but completed without too much difficulty. I also had to 'unplug' (with a coat hanger snake)the drain tube connecting the pump to the back of the washing machine so it could flow to the outside drain pipe. This was the best internet buying experience I have ever had! Thank you so much! I fixed a 15 year old washing machine for about $40.00!!! (And I am a 57 year old grandmother ;-) Woohoo!!!

Washer wasn't agitating

We couldn't get a repair to come out - were told to buy a new because it would cost too much to fix. I did not agree. I pulled the agitator off and discovered it was not working and the agitator coupler was spinning. I ordered both and put them in myself. My washer now worked like new! All for less than $100. The service guy wouldn't eve come out for less than $175 and that did not include parts!
