Hi,

 

Our GE Front Load washer (model WCVH6260FWW) has started making a racket during the various spin cycles. It kind of sounds like the wash basket is loose and banging against something. When I checked it, I found that the wash basket moves a fair amount front-to-back, but there is no up-and-down movement to it, so I don't think the bearings are worn. I know it makes the noise during the spin cycle, but I'm not sure about the wash cycle; my wife just started a load, so I'll check it in a few minutes to see.  FWIW, this particular unit was built in April 2006.

 

If it helps, I uploaded a recording of the sound to https://dl.dropboxus...CVH6260FWW.m4a 

 

Thanks for any guidance you can offer!

 

Regards,

Eric Longman

Take the back panel off and make sure that nut on the big pulley is tight.  I have seen once or twice where that will be loose.  If that is tight, then use you have bad bearings.... and bad bearings typically mean it is cheaper to replace the whole machine rather than repair.

Keep us in the loop to let us know

Thanks good luck,

MicaBay
