Default GE Washer agitates but won't spin
Model Number: wwa8648   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I've an older GE top loading washer that just developed a problem.
It goes through all cycles but won't spin during spin cycle.
If I move the agitator by hand it can't complete a revolution without getting stuck and coming to a dead stop.
I'm guessing this is a transmission problem .
Does anyone have any ideas?
It seems some parts have been discontinued.
If so is it worth it to fix it?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Dave

These older model GE's are really good machines, but they are not worth fixing. You have gotten a long life from this model, celebrate by replacing it, it won't mind.

This is likely too late to help the original poster, but maybe it will help someone else. Try this before you throw out your washer or spend big bucks on repairs.

I had the same problem on an older model GE top loader. It ended up being the tube to the level sensor switch. It was partially clogged and the machine wouldn't go into the spin cycle because the sensor was telling it there was still water in the drum. I was able to take mine loose and blow through it to remove the clog. Total cost: $0.
