GE WBSR3140D0WW WEAK AGITATION AND SPIN

8 posts in this topic

It will agitate and spin fine with no clothes in it, but with a light load it barely agitates and has a hard time starting to spin. The splines look fine.

Corrected model number; it's "D0WW" not "DOWW"; zero, not the letter "O"

Got the front off. Belt shows signs of wear. What is the right way of replacing the belt? IE: getting the old one off and the new one on. Also saw some moisture in the cabinet. No real sign of where it's coming from. Got a fan blowing to dry it out now.

Before replacing belt, put in some clothes and see what happens when unit starts to agitate and then try spin cycle. Is belt slipping or is clutch slipping?
