Thanks. Parts supplier is replacing UI interface as warranty issue with out any questions asked. Surprised hell out of me. Apparently this is a fairly common occurrence with these interfaces.

#305910 GE GSD2200G02BB Won't run, sort of

Turn breaker off. Remove toekick. Use screwdriver to turn motor. Pump seal sometimes sticks to shaft keeping motor from starting. If motor turns free still will not start, it is probably the motor capacitor. GE doesn't sell it separate from the motor but have found the fan motor capacitor in a GE over the range microwave will work.

#305909 Dryer heats but barely dries, and I discovered it is holding water inside it....

I would remove the drum for two reasons. Makes it easier to access and you can vaccum out the lint buildup. To remove the drum, reach in and take tension of the belt and slip it off the motor pulley. Slide the belt to the rear of the drum and use it to help lift the drum out of the rear support bearing. After removing the drum vaccum out the lint and blow lint out of the motor. Use a pair of channel locks or vice grips on the motor pulley to hold shaft while you unscrew the nut on blower wheel. Sorry, can't remember if it is right or left hand thread. I usually replace the rear support bearing whenever I get this far into one. Check belt and front felts or glides for excessive wear. Saves another trip into it later.

#305815 Stackable washer dryer 41797812700

No need to remove dryer. Kill the power. Remove the front panel of the washer. Remove water level tube belt, and motor. Remove agitator. Remove screws from water inlet and move aside so tub will clear. Remove tub cap. Get two metal electrical boxes and remove the tabs for the cover screws. Remove the three small springs by gently straightening the tines that hook into base. Three heavy springs may be color coded, so make note of their location and setting in their base holders. Springs can be easily removed by moving tub to stretch spring and jam electrical box into spring to keep it opened up for easy removal and replacement. Once springs are removed, tub can be removed from the cabinet. Remove old tub seal. Remove three bolts holding plastic tub to base. Remove two screws holding tub bearing in place and remove tub. Transmission has two bolts holding it in the base. I always replace tub bearing and seals. Don't like to have to tear into it twice.

I'm glad Mr. Murphy messes with someone else besides me Sensai.

#301007 GE elec dryer: top of dryer gets too hot DBXR463EG6WW

Posted by jambatt on 14 August 2014 - 05:15 PM

Have had the same issue. Usually found vent issue or customer cut unit off before it went through the cool down period (no heat during last 5 to 10 minutes of the cycle). Sometimes the cycling thermostat (high limit) is bad.

Check airway between FF and Freezer. Had similar issue with different GE model. Found the foam seal was improperly installed and blocked the airway.

Model number??

#288641 Rotary start assembly seating clips

Posted by jambatt on 20 March 2014 - 05:43 PM

Replaced console on same dryer twice in less than six months. That's when I decided I was a little smarter than the GE engineers and designers. Fabricated a bracket to hold switch in place. Only modification since original design was to add shrink wrap to prevent shorting out if it made contact with one of the terminals. I guarantee it as long as the customer owns the dryer. Don't guarantee the POS GE rotary switch. Not had one fail yet.

Hammer and solid  surface works just fine for me. Straighten the apron, # 366 in the perts diagram.

Open door and remove the torx head screws around the perimeter of the door. Been awhile, but I think there are 2 screws at the bottom of the door that have to be loosened or removed in order to seperate the door skin. There is a ribbon connector that may have be disconnected before you can remove the front door panel. After that just follow the yellow brick road but remember what you did to access the control board.

#254483 Help Please! Over Filling washer GE WWSE3160A0WW

Posted by jambatt on 11 May 2013 - 06:00 PM

Just a thought. Is the tube going to the pressure switch pinched or clogged with gookus? 

#234625 GE washer S4200B2WW errors

Posted by jambatt on 19 June 2012 - 07:44 AM

Unplug machine for a few minutes to reset board. If condition persists, remove front panel and check air switch tube that connects to the tub for crud. Also check pump for foreign objects.
