ndzied1 posted a topic in DIY Appliance Repair HelpI have a GE Washing Machine (WPRE8150H0WT) that has been noisy and today stopped spinning. I thought the belt must have broken. I opened up the front and found the belt had fallen off and was sitting in the bottom of the housing. It is worn but not broken. I want to make sure I buy the right parts to fix this. No matter what I'm getting a new belt and I think i need the Shaft And Tube Asm (also seems to be called the Shaft/Mode shift assembly). I have several pictures and short descriptions below. All help appreciated. The driven pulley is no longer in line with the motor pulley. It appears that the driven pulley has moved lower but I'm not sure why. The offset in the picture is not from the camera angle; the big pulley is significantly lower than the motor pulley. More Info below this picture I also see what looks like a metal wire wrapped around the shaft directly above the driven pulley. More Info Below this picture I also found a broken plastic ring and a single ball that looks like it came from a ball bearing in the bottom. More Information below this picture. There is a gap below the wash tub and the Shaft/Mode Shift Assembly looks like is is siting lower than usual.
I have a Whirlpool Duet GHW9250. I have replaced the pulley 3 times in the last 5 years, the last time only 5 months ago, each time because the belt came off and when I inspected it, the pulley was wobbly on its shaft. The same thing happened today. I can replace the pulley again, but I'm concerned that some other problem is causing the pulley to wear prematurely. Any suggestions about what I should look for?
