GE WKSR2100T9WW screaming like tortured farm animal during spin
Posted 06 August 2005 - 03:43 PM
Most times with a slightly heavier load I have to use my massive farm hands to get the tub spinning.
When it has been trying to finish multiple loads in a row, the last ones are problematic and rarely finish. Leaving my DW with a soppy mess.
I pulled the cover recently and rust colored spew is on every interior surface. Most likely exacerbated by my first quieting solution of spraying lubricant on bottom of tranny assy.
Tranny turns both ways, but sometimes the resistance is too high for the motor to overcome and belt slips and I get a joyful burning smell to add to my soggy mess. Is there a repairable/replaceable lower assembly available for that transmission or is all or nothing replacement of the transmission? Does it sound like the culprit/varmit has been isolated to the lower portion of transmission?
Thank you sensi for your guidance.

The gearcase is serviced by replacing the assembly. There is a bearing kit available, but it's not the way to go.
I would not invest much money on this machine. The newer GE washers are prone to numerous, multiple, and expensive failures.
Cut your losses and get a whirlpool top load machine.

Let's hope the sympathy breakdowns end in the laundry room. If dishwasher and range join forces, I may have an appliance mutiny on my hands.
