Belt ripped off

  • Customer: Greg from Hawthorn Woods, IL
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Step one: Order the Belt and the $10.00 tool that fits on the motor sprocket to keep the belt from slipping off. Step 2: Lean the washer back at about a 45 degree angle, you may have to disconnect the water lines to achieve this. This puts the machine in a good position when you sit in front of it as you are installing the belt. Step 3: Install the tool over the motor sprocket leaving the grooves exposed. The belt fits in these grooves. Step 4: Slip the belt over the motor sprocket first and than the large sprocket wheel behind. This will take a little muscle as the belt is considerably smaller. After a couple of attempts at rotating the big sprocket the belt kept slipping off. I than took a plastic tie and strapped it around the belt and the big sprocket wheel, this kept the belt from slipping off as I rotated the wheel. Once the belt is on snip off the plastic tie and you are home free.

I had to cut the drain extension tip of the hose to get the right shape so it could fit into the waste nozzel in the wall. Then I had to screw the new clip onto the washer....All went pretty easy and no more leak!

DISCONNECT POWER----1.- No pump sound when energized but I know it energized as the coil became a magnet. 2.- You need a drain pan to catch the water from the lower tub when the drain hose is disconnected from the pump. 3.- Water pump or channel lock pliers needed to remove the spring clamps on inlet and outlet from pump. 4.- Remove the 2 hold down bolts and the plug in power connection and the pump comes out very easily. 5.- On my pump I found a plastic tie wrap lodged in the pump impeller vanes-- this caused the pump either not to work at all or cause a cavitation effect caused the water in the tub not to drain completely. 6.- Since I had already purchased the new pump I installed the new pump and cleaned the old one to keep as a spare-- probably never going to need it though.7.- On the large diameter drain hose ( pump inlet ) I decided to use a auto hose clamp instead of the original spring clamp because the area to work on this pump is very cramped and getting the original spring clamp back on was very difficult. The hose clamp made it very easy and the seal was just fine. 8.- The new pump functions perfectly- PARTS SELECT delivered a quality OEM product and I am extremely satisfied with their normal delivery which was 2 days because the warehouse was only 150 miles from me.

My washer didn't come with a fabric softener dispenser. I found one on your website and purchased (the part arrived in two days). I popped the top off the agitator, lined up the notches on the fabric softener dispenser with the inside notches on the agitator and pressed down. Voila! Less than 5 minutes, no tools needed.

freight train sound during spin cycle

I searched the internet for the problem resolution & purchased $40 of the parts before I disassembled the machine. This was to minimize the downtime. Not one of the internet sites recommended changing the shaft & mode shifter assy so all the parts I ordered were not needed. Once I determined the correct part I had the reorder & pay expediting fees to deliver next day.

After watching the YouTube video on how to disassemble the GE Profile washing machine the repair was relatively simple.

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.

The washer had quit agitating but was still spinning

  • Customer: Lewis from birmingham, AL
  • Difficulty: Easy

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.
