I have a five year old clothes washer that broke down a couple of days ago.  I'd like to see if I can fix it myself with some help from you people.

Everything seems to work fine:  fills with water, pumps the water out.....

Problem:  When it enters the wash cycle, the agitator doesn't move, I hear the motor kick in and after romoving the front panel I saw the motor trying to move the belt with great difficulty.  I checked the belt and it looked ok.  I tried to manually pull on the belt to see if the agitator would move with no luck.  There was a great deal of resistance?

I tried to remove the agitator and almost broke my back!  I tried your rope and 2x4 trick without success.

I read on the forum that I may have a tranny problem?  I think this would be a BIG job for me...what do you think?  Any suggestions?

The transmission has a 5 year warranty, so see when you bought it.  These have been a huge problem with these new style washers.  If it is over 5 years might I refer you to a nice Whirlpool Direct Drive Washer and get you as far from this G.E as I can get you....  :)

Remove the belt and see if the motor runs fine off of the transmission.  If it does, replace the belt and see if it will agitate or spin, with the belt on.  Then we will go from there, but there are known problems with these transmissions and bearings, however would help to know what all it is not doing.  :)
