GE Washer Sometimes Spins, will not agitate

6 posts in this topic

GE Washer Model WHDSR315DAWW

Like the title says, it will not agitate, but it does drain and it usually will spins.

I say usually, because 9 times out of ten it will spin, but every now and then I end up with a pile of wet clothes.

Only recently have I noticed that when it is supposed to be agitating, it will only hum.

Yeah, I figured it was that or the timer.

Either way, I don't think it's worth it for this washer. I think I'll look for a cheap used one until I can afford something new.

Kdog, should dunnright check the drive block before despairing?

It could also be a bad motor. When it's supposed to be agitating but won't, take the belt off and see if the motor will run.

$270 for a motor? Really? GE with their parts price gouging.

Yeah, who really built this thing? Is there a way to tell from the model number or something? Because I'd rather go around GE if possible.
